China or Russia. Which one will show they have had enough of us first?

    It's not the US being the provocative ones here. Important to keep that in mind.

    That's in the eye of the beholder. If the Russians or Chinese sent ships off our coastline, we might see such moves as provocative.

    The USA won the last gambling incident (just), of 1962, but I wouldn't necessarily bank on it doing so again.

    Yep. We think we can go anywhere and do anything while limiting where others can go and what they can do. Its just a matter of time when other powers will have had enough.

    Such as Taiwan. It's their country, not Communist China.

    I think that's what they are doing as well. Testing our reaction and study how we respond. At least for the moment.

    The US wants escalation because military conquest is the only thing it can realistically win. The fact is China and Russia are already our technological superiors and make more money off global multimedia than we do. Including media on our own US server platforms like YouTube which is dominated by Russian content farms. The fact is the abysmal lack of care for education spending in the US has and will further lead to our depreciation as an international superpower. All because Republicans are too busy with stupid **** like 'college is for libs.'
