    Russia has almost as much cultivatable land as the US, they have not been as good at making use of it since the collapse of the USSR. After the collapse of the Soviet Union they did not achieve the same level of production until 2016 that they had in the 80s.

    Yes they do all west of Ural mountains.
    Take a bit of time and logistics to move an army across that country for that distance.
    Remember Russia covers ten time zones. They have been invaded but never successfully occupied.

    Just ask the Nazi's about Operation Barbarossa... that's a LOT of real estate to cover, much of it mired in mud that soon turns to ICE. Supply lines stretched until non-existent. Invading Russia has been bad juju every time.

    China has the manpower and army power, . . . with more than 8 times the population as Russia.

    China can barge in, . . . take a section, . . . and hold it for 10 years, . . . barge out, . . . take another section, . . . hold it, . . . and on, and on, and on.

    Russia would expend everything it owns trying to stop the Chicoms if the chinks decided to do it.

    And like was said earlier, . . . no ocean's to cross, . . . an no gun behind every blade of grass.

    I really don't think we have as much to fear from the Chicoms as does Russia.

    May God bless,

    And yet, every time over the last 1,000+ years that China has tried that with their relatively tiny neighbor to the south, Vietnam, they have lost.
    We never would have beaten North Vietnam either.

    OK, I'll admit how my mind works.
    When I saw the title of the thread I thought, "Man, that C.O. is going to be mad when he learns that his drunken Marines done gone and stole somone's island!"

    The US feeds as many Chinese people as China does, the US is it’s biggest customer, but you can worry when that changes.

    China has so much tied up in the US dollar that they will never attack us outright.
    They will just take us over from within.
    Unless the muslims beat them to it.

    I rarely disagree with you RPD but I don't think it will make a difference. Inter connectivity, trade agreements, investments, etc. didn't prevent WWII. China want's to be the top dog. Xi Jinping has as much as stated this is as the goal. I see chess pieces being moved around the board by both China and Russia.

    I do agree Xi will have to move fast before the muslims or the socialist take us down from within. One thing is certain, it appears there is a race to see who can take America down.

    I put the time frame out there some, but the certainty of it is assured; America will go to war with China, and it will be a history making naval affair.
    I don't know how many would throw in with her, but it might be a lot of nations, and then it goes from bad to worse. Americans want to ignore the danger in the world, but it is there.
