All free too. :D

Got SFA to do with this topic though.


Sure you did. In your sleep.


Think what you like. I certainly DGAF what you think.


There is a big difference in 160km/hr tilt trains and I've taken plenty of those and the CRH, ICE, TGV and the Bullet Trains which cruise at 320km/hr.

What's next the 430km/hr maglev in shanghai is right up there with the 120km/hr Ballarat V-line :lol:

Yes, the train in China I took a ride on did well over 300kph. Don't recall the actual on the day.

It'd be like walking into one of their own supermarkets :lol:


More than likely they already have 1000 copies of "Bush Tucker man" Ripped off naturally. :D

Taiwan
Soloman Is
Japan
AU.
perhaps even New Guinea

Who knows, but invading any one of those could/will result in WWIII IMO.

One of the errors of WWII was the Japs were badly under estimated. Small, weak, blind that's what many believed. USA & AU discovered differently.

We shouldn't assume that of Chinese.
And my bet is that their equipment will be pretty good, just not tested in battle,,,, yet.
And the military hierarchy also lack experience.
But,,, they have the numbers.
And unlike us, make their own ammo and equipment. And they can do it fast.

During the WWII the yanks geared up all of their production to the war effort. That was a major contributing factor in winning the war,


There are so many factors involved in predicting all this stuff about all we can do is map out potential scenarios, of which there are many that could play out.

The other thing is pre WW2, both Germany and Japan had made territorial gains for several years before it turned into a World War. So I guess the question is how much the rest of the world would tolerate Russia and China taking over countries before they go that's it, game on.

What is going to happen to the Betel nut beauties? My guess is it will be shut down by the CCP.

I have a feeling once Xi Jinping gets his 3rd term CCP will attack Taiwan. He has to, in order to save "face".

I watched an interesting discussion on China / Taiwan.
Essentially, they suggest that China doesn't want Taiwan to becone a military launching pad for the West, much in the same way Japan planned on using Taiwan to launch an attack on China under its savage rule of the island.
Just another motive for China to take Taiwan... again.

They also discussed America's complete lack of preparedness to go head to head with China and likened the attitude of US admission to posing tough with zero statesmanship in regard to nation building.

The fella being interviewed (which I could remember who he was) suggested that when China decides to strike it'll be sudden, without warning and brutal.

I think China has about 10x the military that Taiwan has.

And that's exactly how they'd like to keep it, they don't want the USA there much like how we don't want China parked on the islands to our immediate north.
