    China has already pledged to more coal and wheat purchases from Russia to try and help them against sanctions. They’re definitely in bed with each other. It wouldn’t surprise me one but to see them make a move.

    What would your ideal leader do about it? Nuke China?

    They'd have to be a military build up in advance (just as was the case with Ukraine) including a significant amount of civilian shipping for transport purposes. It would be noticed and alarm bells would start ringing long before any assault actually commenced. I also suspect Ping will want to see how cohesive and resolute the West remains after Russia's military operations are completed and what if any impact the sanctions actually have on Russia's economy before considering anything so 'ambitious' himself.

    If they attacked Taiwan, Actually! I'd hope he would launch a Biological weapon from a Trident Submarine right over the top of Beijing as retaliation for the 6 million people China has murdered from this Covid-19 Pandemic Hell they unleashed upon the Earth. Then I'd hope he'd give the order for China to hand over President Xi and every other top government communist official responsible for these crimes against humanity or were going to use our Electromagnetic Pulse Weapon to shut down all their electronics and then send a couple thousand Cruise Missiles and destroy every Military base in their Country.

    Hmm. So you want us to be nuked by China over their dispute with Taiwan?

    I don't think I'd vote for you or your ideal leader.

    We should have showed strength so that we didn't come to this point. I advocate for prevention no reaction. It's too late now, the dominoes are set, and there are no good options.

    There is only so much strength we can show. Russia is a nuclear power, so there is only so far we could reasonably go in responding to their aggression against a non-NATO member.

    But the response so far is strong indeed. From rallying the world to condemn this to coordinating massive economic sanctions, Biden's response is strong. And that, I think, is a good option, as was arming and training and otherwise assisting Ukraine in the years leading up to this modern act of infamy.

    Showing strength in other areas like Afghanistan is what I mean. We looked incompetent and weak. Russia thinks they can do what they want and we will do nothing and what we do do, we will screw up.

    Yeah, Afghanistan was a cluster. All we can do is try to learn from it and do better in the future.

    Trump made us look weak in the eyes of the world, dictator took notice and are now doing the whole fake news to their people and what can we say, we just had a president that gaslighted us constantly, even the weather

    one thing Trump did, is make Dictators feel more empowered by praising them

    China played Trump like a Chump

    Is that why Putin attacked while Trump was president, because Trump is weak and loves dictators? Very odd world you created for yourself.

    Ok, so what would your ideal leader do if China decided to invade and take over Japan or Australia killing Millions in the process.

    They'd have to be stupid not to be. NATO has demonstrated that peace is for members only and membership is for Western Central Banking participants only.

    Did Russia invade any countries, while Trump was President. I think the only thing that was invaded, while Trump was President is your Brain

    Is that why Russia hacked the DNC and worked to undermine the Clinton campaign? Because they wanted to go against a strong leader?

    He one sided decided that there shouldn't be a treaty with Iran before having a new one.
    We all know how that is going,... Iran going more and more nuclear.
    I don't think that falls into the category of having a saver world.

    So, this was just more of the usual China testing airspace. Looks like Biden wins again.

    This is nothing new
    https://abcnews.go.com/Internationa...a-jets-crossing-center-taiwan-strait-62084236

    Fun fact. The Taiwanese government calls it's own country "China", since Taiwan and China is 1 country.
    The Taiwanese government used to rule it all until the civil war broke out. Now they just got Taiwan.

    And where the US supports the idea that Ukraine may not be cut up and must be 1 sovereign nation,
    the US supports the idea that mainland China doesn't get a say in what is happening in their sovereign nation which includes Taiwan.
    Taiwan isn't an independent nation. Hardly a country on this planet sees it like that.
    All this is, is an emotional resentment against the government of the mainland.
    And the US flip flops around on their policies if or if not a government gets to rule over what is happening in it's borders.

    I never said what Russia is doing is trumps fault — I am saying that people acting like this would have never happened under trump are not basing their opinions on reality.

    I am sorry that was too difficult for you to understand causing you to go into defense mode for dear leader.

    Right. So they helped elect someone who was a wildcard vs. Someone who would keep the status quo. Okay.
