#4 ION PRESS TV > IRAN WAR WILL DESTROY US SUPERPOWER STATUS.

Not likely as I expect Iran to continue to do nothing to antagonize the Bammer outside of Media-correct anti-US rants.

IMO the more realistic threat to US status will be vee Nuke-armed China in its dispute wid Japan over the China-claimed Senkakus.

POTUS OBAMA WILL HAVE ONLY THREE OPTIONS

> Militarily support its ally JAPAN in full agz China.
> Pressure Japan to give up the Senkakus in order to avoid a Limited or Full-scale, Tactical or Strategic Nuclear Military Conflict wid China.
> Do nothing + stay out of the Sino-Japan fracas,+ risk seeing the US lose its credibility wid Japan + ROK + PHIL, etc. ASEAN in East Asia.
THE US WILL BE KICKED OUT.

China's ultimate Mil focii or objective will be to secure de facto control of TAIWAN, as China has hinged the success or failure of its "post-US", future World #1 "Manifest Destiny" on formal reunification wid Taiwan under Beijing.

TAIWAN, NOT HAINAN = CHINA'S EQUIVALENT OF "PEARL HARBOR/HAWAIIAN ISLANDS" IN THE LATE 19TH-EARLY 20TH CENTURY FOR THE NEWLY
"INTERNATIONALIST/MAHANIST" US.

IMO any + all Chinese combat in NE Asia will directly or indirectly be centered on a successful recapture of Taiwan by the PLA.

China has impor advantages, from demanding that the US pay its US$13.0Triyuhn debt to China, to demanding territorial + access concessions from US-Japan-ROK [PHIL?]in order to avoid any Limited or Full-scale nuclear conflict, espec as per TAIWAN.

AGAIN, MANY US NETTERS SAY THEY DON'T TRUST THE BAMMER TO DEFEND AMER'S INTERESTS.

WILL THE BAMMER FIGHT, OR WILL HE BE LIKE POTUS WOODROW WILSON + UK PM NELVILLE CHAMBERLAIN + "KEEP THE US OUT OF WAR"???

Nuclear War, versus Concessions???

#5 FYI CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > CHINA TO "PREPARE FOR THE WORST" AFTER MILITARY CONFRONTATION WID JAPAN, in the East China Sea.

The Artic says SENKAKUS/DIAOYUS - NO, WHAT CHINA WANTS MOST OF ALL IS TAIWAN! The Diaoyus + Okinawa are important to China as per covering or protecting its desired future PLA Milbases on Taiwan as per transit to, from WESTPAC vee the OKINAWA-TAIWAN-PHIL STRAITS.
