You can't do a cross-channel invasion with aircraft. You need boats. Lots of them. It's difficult nowadays to organize that without being noticed. It's not 1944.

Biden should offer to officially recognize Taiwan's sovereignty if China does it again. Let them decide between backing down or losing a huge diplomacy chip.

Sure would be nice if we shifted a lot of our manufacturing back to North America (or at least our southern neighbors if corps really don't want to make thatcommitment) so that we can kindly tell China to fark off and mean it.

How about growing the economies in Southeast Asia, Africa, and South America? They'd love the income and don't have pointless plans to dominate the world.

Even in 1944 they couldn't hide it. The Nazis knew D-day was coming, they saw the fleets, they had spies reporting on troops being gathered in England. But Allied counterintelligence and double-agents were really, really good at what they did and convinced the Nazis that D-day would happen both later and further north, that the Normandy invasion was a feint to draw away defenders from the true landing zone. Dumb farking Nazis bought the lie for nearly two weeks after troops had landed.

In the olden days, Greek fire can take care of the incoming boats.

Of course, today, Taiwan can use natural gas since it burns on water with the same results.

Manufacturing isn't coming back to the US until wages here are cheaper than wages overseas. That's going to happen and it's going to be ugly.

The number of aircraft they chose was peculiar, until I looked and found the number 27 is also the provincial telephone code for WUHAN province.  Which, of course, is clear proof that Taiwanese wet markets are fueling chemtrails and Hillary's push to have same sex marriages to electric cars.  They're in it with the Aliens, Stuart!

lot more than you'd think has moved back a lot faster than anyone could have predicted. Lockdowns, corruption, and the growing bullshiattery of the CCP (Xi is a lot more of a tyrant than Deng/Jiang/Hu). Labor and materials mean it can't be done overnight, but faster than they moved to China.  And if Mexico had a better grip on their cartel issues, they'd be getting most of that transfer.

I know some industries are moving production lines from China to Colombia (in particular).  Youthful working age population along with 2-3 million Venezuelan expats of working age. Which should make Colombia's incoming (Lula-level left) president interesting.  Heck, Brazil might bring back Lula himself.

Twenty minutes after China *does* decide to invade, Taiwan will have no airstrips. Whatever planes they managed to get into the air will be the only planes they get into the air and they won't have decent places to land.
 
2022-08-03 1:28:13 PM  
I really wish the world would just stop pussy footing and just outright say "fark you China. Taiwan is a free, separate country, and we will defend it against your bullshiat"

Alternatively, just give them nukes.

Don't ask me why GOP largely voted against it. I mean good grief people pass stuff that makes sense rather than just sh*ting on anything the opposition tries to pass.

Between that and all these stupid executive orders flying around. Both sides are a bunch of spoiled adult children.


They voted against it because they are spoiled children who don't want Biden to get credit for doing anything good.

"Both sides" had always been a lie people use to justify voting for Republicans because they feel icky about the letter "D".
