China just drew a red line. Checkmate on our President Acorn.
I take China’s intervention also to be an indication of which side China would take.
It’s about time for China to start some trouble over Taiwan or the South China Sea again to show just how thin our shrinking military has become. The Russians could turn up in the Caribbean or a couple of their long range bombers could probe Alaska like they have done in the past, too. This whole mess is going to get out of hand if cool heads don’t prevail.
Anyone in the market for a new Saiga shotgun/rifle, or other Russian stuff had better get’em now....If it isn’t already too late.
‘Panic buying’ is bad enough for scare supply/high prices. Throw in a REAL supply interruption, and it’ll get crazy.(glad I got mine lol)
Sounds like China just bought some much needed gas.
Big business Commies.
Just like our Democrats here at home.
Chinese are worried that a big sanctions move against the russians in the crimea will set up a big sanctions move against them for the incursions into the the south and east china seas.
The first casualty of a potential east-west conflict will be “Free Trade”. I say halleluiah to that. Free Traitors can go hide under the rocks or GTHO, go live with your Asian handlers.
Wars and rumors of wars.
EU and American sanctions could lead to a shortage of artisen breads, perfume, Hollywood movies and gourmet beverages in Russia. Everything else, including GM cars is made in China.
There is no dilemma. China fully supports the right of the larger country to deal with smaller neighbors as it sees fit. They *are* the larger country in their region. Tibet is an internal affair of China, but Taiwan is a very good analogy to Ukraine. In essence, Taiwan is allowed to exist unmolested only because Taiwan is not doing any wrong moves. Ukraine did make such moves. It was their right... but the only rights between countries are those that a country is able to defend. Everything else is hot air. Ukraine over the last 15 years drove its industry, economy and yes, military into the ground. Now they are observing the results of that policy.
It’s a shame that I despise our president so much that I feel good when China or Russia tells us to go to hell.
Tell China to pound sand.
IE.. tell China to back sanctions or we will no longer recognize any claim the Chinese have to Taiwan.
Popular American opinion was anti-defense for some time before WWI and also before WWII. America also suffered terrible economic depressions immediately before each of those wars. Then there was Cold War I.
