This is crazy counterfactual history.Original Post Deleted
To be honest, without USA in WW1, Germany might have wiped out the communist uprising after Breast-Litovsk. We literally have no clue.
I'm pretty glad America intervened when it did, on both occasions.
And that makes Russian attack on Ukraine ok? Well hike, did you see US turning tails now that Russia has started its invasion of Ukraine? Nope...more heavy sanctions are coming.Original Post Deleted
Johnny Harris discussing what would happen if China invades Taiwan. Now Harris is a New York Times contributor and a former investigative journalist for online news media site Vox. He is not some rabid US anti-Chinese right-winger and instead definitely leans on the progressive liberal side. He takes pain at the beginning to say he does not want to see a Cross-Straits conflict and does not want to demonize China or think China wants war. What he is describing instead is a possible worst-case scenario and how the danger of conflict is closer to reality than we may realize:
So is his scenario plausible? Or just mere fear-mongering and far from reality?
I see it is a "what if?" scenario, when what's more relevant is a "could it happen" scenario.
I read a report not long ago from a geo political think tank that said even if China wanted to physically invade Taiwan (I don't think it does) it won't have the capabilities until 2027 at the earliest.
