    Okay, i feel like it's time to bump this thread.
    We are damn near fighting a aproxy war against Russia in Syria.
    The policy and millitary decisions made in the next year will require briksmanship.

    This is fucking scary.

    Isn't Russia kind of alone in this potential fight though?

    Russia is the biggest threat for the next president by far. Russia has been brutal in Syira recently.
    Highly doubt Putin will go to war with Nato. But he will still be really dangerous. Im certain Ukraine will escalate again soon.

    Hillary Clinton will be tougher but it will probably result in Vlad resorting to further thuggish atrocious behaviour in response. He despises her deeply.
    The most disturbing aspect of Trumps entire presidential campaign has been his relationship with Russia...i acctually agree Nato has at points disregarded Russias point of view and maybe over stepped its agreed boundaries.
    But i dont think Trump fully understands what Vladimir wants to impose on the world. Autocracy, etc.
    I just think Trump is too much of a fucking plank to be able to deal with Putin.

    They need to find some sort of middle ground. But i dont know if this is possible.

    So far, and as far as we know. Ignoring any potential allies in case of larger conflict, Russia being alone isn't really a comforting thought.

    The thing is, you can't really know which alliances will rise before a situation escalates, not at our level of knowledge anyway. It entirely depends on Russia's stand and claims, on the situation triggering the potential conflict, and on its adversary's own attitude and claims.
    Russia won't have the same alliance if a conflict escalates due to what's happening in Syria or because of Ukraine, if it's butting heads with NATO or if it's a matter of solidifying its alliances in the middle east. Or all of it. Similarly, depending on whether Europe feels threatened or if it's a move against the US strategy in Africa, the players in the conflict wouldn't be the same, or equally involved.

    it wouldn't surprise me, @Archive_Reports , if the shit hits the proverbial fan, russia would be backed by China, and possibly Iran, and even North Korea.
    Alone, most of those countries are small potatoes, but some of them have nukes, and together they could create a chilling alliance.


    I think that people should be paying more attention to this.

    A brief update on the WWIII front.

    The United States has begun deploying attack drones in South Korea.

    This follows the deployment of THAAD missile defense system. I'm not much for fear-mongering but let's just say that tension has ramped up in this particular area.

    I don't think Cheetoh wants to go to war, but Nikki Halley says we want N Korea to stop their demonstrations of aggression and isn't listening to China.

    To be fair, N Korea IS a real threat to our allies in S Korea and Japan.

    I don't think Trump wants to go to war necessarily, but Bannon probably does, and I could see, as time goes by and his popularity fails to rise, him pushing at Trump to get into a conflict since war time presidents always are favored more come time for reelection. It's the exact kind of move I could see him making, but I'm hoping I'm wrong.

    China is also a problem for the US. The South China Sea is a cause for headaches.

    I feel like Trump wants to purposely throw the US economy into a recession, so he he can use Russian investment money to buy up property in the US at discount, and what better way to do that then to start a war that the next administration will have to deal with.

    Right now, I'm fairly convinced that Trump will attack North Korea's nuclear facilities.
    Trump saw the approval ratings bump following the attack on Syria and I think he's gonna gun for NK next.
    It'll get more praise from the ne-cons and some Dems.

    What the consequences of an attack on NK will be are anyone's guess though. No way NK has the capabilities of launching a nuclear strike on the US. However, South Korea could be an easy target.

    New US-led airstrikes against Pro-Assad convoy which included one tank.

    The timing of this attack is quite amusing considering what's happening on this continent.
