The Democrats spent the 4 years of the Trump presidency screaming he would get us into a war. He did not. Biden in just the first 4 months has us heading to a world war by being a weak old man.
I expect Russia to start a war this year and China as soon as the winter Olympics are over.


  • Russian troops are massing on the Ukraine border, Chinese vessels are swarming Whitsun Reef of the Philippines in the South China Sea, and China's air force is flying almost daily through Taiwan's air-defense identification zone. Chinese troops for almost a year have been dug in deep in Indian-controlled Ladakh in the Himalayas. Two large aggressors are threatening to break apart neighbors and absorb them.

  • American attempts to de-escalate flashpoints are seen in Russian and Chinese circles as failures of resolve.

  • The Global Times, an unofficial Communist Party tabloid used by Beijing to signal new policies, on April 12 posted a video of Hu Xijin, its editor-in-chief, warning that Beijing would overfly Taiwan—in other words, fly into Taiwan's sovereign airspace—to "declare sovereignty."

  • Chinese leaders speak provocatively because, among other reasons, they do not believe the United States or others will come to Taiwan's rescue.... In effect, China's leaders are saying they do not believe President Joe Biden would defend Taiwan.

  • In a propaganda blast on April 8, China's regime said Taiwan "won't stand a chance" if it decides to invade the island. This Chinese self-perception of overwhelming strength is extraordinarily dangerous....

  • [W]e have already passed the point where just declarations and warnings will suffice. The Biden administration has yet to impose costs on China for aggressive actions jeopardizing America's security and that of allies like Japan. Chinese leaders, while hearing the mild warnings from the Biden administration, must be asking one question: "Or what?"

  • Vladimir Putin in 2019 said that Russia reserved the right to protect ethnic Russians outside Russia. This month, Dmitry Kozak, deputy head of Russia's presidential administration, said his country might intervene to "defend" its citizens. If it did, he suggested, Ukraine would not survive because it would not be "a shot in the leg, but in the face."

  • The American response has not been adequate. Russians perceive Biden as feeble. "In Putin's game of brinkmanship, Biden blinked first," said journalist Konstantin Eggert to the BBC, referring to the American president proposing a meeting to his Russian counterpart. Biden's "nerves," he said, "had failed him."

  • That assessment may be correct. In the face of threats directed at Washington by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, the U.S. Navy did not, as many had expected, send two destroyers through the Bosporus into the international waters of the Black Sea. Politico reported that "two U.S. officials familiar with the plans" said the cancellation was due to American concerns about inflaming the Russia-Ukraine situation....

  • the ultimate decision to stay away made it look as if the U.S. had backed down.

  • The Dragon and the Bear appear to be coordinating moves, as they have for some time. At the very least, each is acting with an eye to what the other is doing. Once one of these aggressors makes a move, the other large state, taking advantage of the situation, will almost certainly follow. Biden also has to be concerned about Moscow or Beijing acting through proxies Iran and North Korea.

  • All the elements for history's next great conflict are now in place.

I'm a Vietnam "survivor" father and grandfather of three boys born to my two daughters of which one is now old enough for the draft and a younger one who will be eligible in a couple more years and I pray and hope they never have to go thru what I did or any other veteran since. To all you mother's, father's and grand parents out there that have lost loved one's or have children coming of fighting age you must be as terrified as I am of the "IDIOT and his mob of criminals that are rapidly escalating us into another world war, let's just hope we by some miracle can get by this.

And we are sending military supplies to the Ukraine which is totally corrupt. What did we do when the USSR sent missiles to Cuba? That is why Russia is sending to troops to the border, they will protect there country, just like we did. We are creating these world problems.

Of course we are, I have thought that for at least 6 months now. There is a chance though we don’t fight for Taiwan because Biden is a Chinese sympathizer.

Did you miss the part where Russia took part of the Ukraine? That is why we sent them weapons and supplies.

President Biden and the Squad might surrender but I bet the American people wouldn't...I think there are still millions of patriots that would stand and fight a foreign aggressor especially if it was here on American soil....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Five bucks says the South would be the last area an invading power would go for. They know damn well we won't mess around!

If we stay out of whatever mess China is getting into in Taiwan and Hong Kong long enough until one of China's allies attacks us, we could bomb them back to the bamboo age... provided their cheap components in every piece of US military hardware doesn't have a hidden master control that China can affect.
A very large percentage of our computer chips come from Taiwan. I read that it is somewhere around 55%. That may be a reason.

I seriously hope we do not get into a war with China or anyone else. Our navy is not ready for anything but taking on little countries. At this time we have 11 carriers, 22 cruisers and 70 destroyers. That is our blue water surface fleet. No frigates at all and our sub fleet has been chopped too. We have some of the LCS but they are not really escorts which is where our shortage is.
