7/20    Is jblack still on? What about the rest of the pro-war cheerleaders?
        \_ War is fought for the glory of generals and the economics of the
           war machine.  Looking for "justifications" for it is like looking
           for sense in the necronomicon.  Just accept it and move on.
        \_ When we fight with Red China, what nation will we use as a proxy?
           \_ Pakistan.
              \_ Oh, not korea?
                 \_ Supplying by land >>>> supplying over the pacific; see
                    any documentary on Guadalcanal.
           \_ Taiwan, I assume. Korea would work also, but a bit harder to get
              started, for both sides.
              \_ Probably Taiwan, but really any country in the region that we
                 give two spits about and that PRC cares to invade.
              \_ How would you supply Taiwan if the PRC blockades the Yellow
                 Sea and the Balintang Channel?
                 \_ How does China re-inforce their invasion force in the face
                    of 13 US aircraft carriers? We both have the same problem,
                    which would make it kind of interesting. China would be
                    smarter to pick a fight over a place they can resupply by
                    land, but they probably don't want to have to deal with
                    North Korea either.
                    \_ They're alot closer to Taiwan, and cargo in subs.
                       \_ The Japanese tried that in Guadalcanal
                          \_ Those weren't real subs, those were diesel
                             submersible ships. Also, we broke their code.
        \_ Good thing Iraq is a shining example of Democracy and Freedom
           in the Middle East. Now everyone there will want to be our ally:
           \_ There's a bridge in San Francisco I want to sell you.
