If I were thirty years younger, I’d definitely be learning Mandarin. For sure. In fact, I keep trying to interest my niece in taking courses.

Numbers yes, technology, a bit, tactically and operationally? Who knows.

If you were betting man, go for it now, it's not going to get easier.

Actually, if you were a betting man, go for it 30 years ago, before you let them buy/beg/borrow/steal the IP they have since then.

Of course we all hope that truth justice and the American way will prevail and they will overturn the CPC any day now :roll: but failing that you could bung the Mongols, Uighurs, Tibetans, Cantonese et al great wads of cash to undermine them like you did in Afghanistan - that worked out well didn't it?

Of course Ronnie (partly) outspent the Rooskies and brought them down, but I don't think that's going to work with the Chinese; having spent the last 30 odd years building them up to be the industrial superpower in the world.

Learn to speak Mandarin or be prepared for some hard choices.

You really don’t get it, do you?

No shit, the U.S. had more capable assets now and in 1982. But the U.S. won’t be fighting Argentina in 1982, now will it?

How do you reckon China’s military power today compares to Argentina’s in 1982? Reckon China’s just a bit more capable?

Britain hasn't had any proper fleet carriers since the 70s. A handful of helicopter carriers and short deck carriers deploying Harriers wasn't a credible alternative.


Oh, no doubt. Today’s U.S. Navy could definitely beat the shit out of 1982 Argentina. No question.


For an academic your reading comprehension skills are somewhat lacking. Read the second sentence, first para again. Slowly.

Trump may be in a huge personal financial debt to China.

TMP dipshits just aching for a war with China.

Not trying to overestimate the Chinese naval prowess here, but when you ponder what a close-run thing the Falklands war was... and seriously, Argentina has no greater naval tradition than China.

You’d think it’d make even thick as fuck Trumpsters loathe to toss those particular dice.

But nope!

What would happen if the U.S. started a naval war with China... and lost?

I mean, OK, they’d “win”, obviously. But what if the cost was three or four carriers, the devastation of Taiwan and maybe Korea? What would they do?

Not really. The problem with grass courts are that they need to be maintained 24/7 to a very high standard. Outside the posh tennis clubs, grass courts weren't that well looked after and were useless after it rained, or dried out during hot summers. All park-keepers used to do was mow them. I remember one in a park, in the late 70s, when I was a nipper. I think it got turned into a clay/concrete one a couple of years later.

If those two clowns were still on TNP (difficult in Rocky's case) they'd be vocal opponents of any Covid countermeasures.


Smokey’s been done in by a tennis game? Oh, my.
