We might as well make Argentina dark blue
Rigging the elections on Brazil didn't help the cabal get them out. China was in there immediately after Bolsonaro was ousted, to make
sure. Not that there was much the US/Euro alliance could do. One wonders at the continuing funneling of resources to the Ukrainian debacle
while simultaneously destroying their own economies and infrastructure. But then one is nominally sane (those who know me best occasionally
disagree) and likely facing the prospect of a draft to enable further military adventures. That will be interesting, as it would be aimed at
the red states, partly to punish them and in part because the available personnel from blue states are unsuitable. With the destruction
already wrought through purges of the officer corps beginning with Slick Willie
and accelerated under Ovomit
, the forces are in no condition to do much of anything.
And if the targeted conscripts resist as during the Vietnam era it could get ugly.
Latin America is mostly a lost cause now, including Mexico. China most likely won't have to do much to take Taiwan, and may do it without
any military action. We occasionally discuss (most of us dating to the Vietnam era) what would have happened of long ago the US and NATO
had armed the small Asian free countries (South Korea, Japan, possibly a couple of others with Taiwan being problematical) with nukes for
defensive purposes. India and Pakistan already have them, and if Russia/China were a threat it would be blunted considerably. But of
course preserving freedom was never their aim, least of all in their own countries. And China and Russia were only dangerous while they
considered the west a threat. That threat is now almost non-existent.
Given the near certainty of a Demonrat
president next time around, and majorities of Republicans in either house unlikely (not that it would make much difference) the end of the Republic
may be near. Being thoroughly bankrupt it will look a lot like Russia after the revolution. Except Russia didn't have 30 million or so heavily armed
and hard to catch partisans aggravating them. Given the weakness of the armed forces (and the likely desertion of most of the capable ones) we might
look like a really big version of the Balkans or Middle East. Will any of the free states be able to form militias to hold their territory?
