Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

As us china trade war tensions rise, polarizations throughout asia brings the world into eventual recession. Will it spin into eventual major arms conflict?

There are numerous areas around the world that could trigger a global conflict. India-Pakistan, Iran-straights of Hormuz, Taiwan, Hong-Kong, and Korea-Japan.

As stated above and the now defunct nuclear deal and US, Russia, N. Korea all testing nuclear weapons.
I don't believe worldwide tensions have been in such turmoil during my lifetime.

The big worry of course is the Danish/American war over Greenland. The Danes have genetically altered polar bears and given them pilot training. May god help us allImage

It could easily happen if the strait of Hormuz is interdicted to oil bound for China.

Many of the same factors are present that led to war with Japan.

Wouldn't that more likely be Korea-Korea?

Then, of course there's the South China Sea.
You could be next.

While the world is busy mocking Trumps plan to “buy” greenland was anyone aware that China already tried to gain control??

Using their polar-belt and road initiative they were approached for infrastructure funding after Denmark turned Greenland down. American pressure kept China out and Denmark agreed to the funding.

The way the idea is being portrayed in the news you would think something like this has never happened before... *cough* US Virgin Islands *cough*... Alaska

Undoubtedly China's expansionist ambitions must be stopped.

Trump is still an illiterate and moronic imbecile though, and about as avaricious and crooked as they come.

Those may be his better points too.
