Dear Professor Kaufman,
It looks like the Ukraine war will be fought in Ukraine without nukes.
A continuation of the Korean and Vietnam Wars with Russia the main adversary,
a war by proxy.
Except this time Russia and Ukraine is doing the actual fighting
(instead of USA, Koreans, Vietnamese).
Now it looks like the next shoe to drop is China.
China may invade Taiwan and cut off USA supply of computer chips,….
North Korea may also invade South Korea and cut off the rest of USA supply of computer chips, and many TVs, Cars, and other manufactured items..
USA was a major producer in the 1950s.
Now USA just a bunch of fat consumers, borrowers, gamers, gamblers, TV addicts, enternainment addicts, drug addicts, pot smokers, vape vapors, taco cooks, hamburger flippers….
Affirmative action, multiculturalism, multisexualism, diversity,….
apparently did not work.
Jobs should be given for merit!
The USA Biden economy is worse than it appears on TV.
I attach a graph of the total labor force.
Still not back to where it was when the pandemic hit and there are more mouths to feed, more illegal immigration,…
But no unemployment!
People taking a permanent vacation?
Work is not getting done – I see it everywhere.
Things fail to work, falling apart,…
Hopefully bitcoin Stock Market crash will reduce the irrational exhuberance…
Bring USA back to reality.
Start working and producing again.
USA needs to prepare for war, defense.
Russia has the most nukes.
China as the largest Army and Navy and is rapidly expanding.
Russia and China both have hypersonic missiles.
Does not look good.
China has been honing its ship-killing skills for potential future conflicts on new targets in a remote desert, according to new satellite photos reviewed by USNI News. New analysis shows the People’s Liberation Army is testing the ability to hit ships in port with long-range ballistic missiles. Since USNI News reported China has been building aircraft carrier targets in the Takmalakan Desert, other target sites have emerged forming a string of large-scale target ranges running along the eastern edge of the desert, according to new satellite photos. Several of these are naval and two have layouts that appear to be modeled on ships in port. Eight miles southwest of an elaborate aircraft carrier layout, a site with full-scale piers and a destroyer-sized ship-like target was constructed in December. A test missile hit a dead center on the ship replica in February and thent the target was then quickly disassembled and is now gone, according to more recent images. This new target was discovered as part of the research into aircraft carrier targets, which had been found by All Source Analysis (ASA) with more details revealed by high-resolution satellite imagery from Maxar Technologies.
The Chinese military deployed forces all around the island of Taiwan over the weekend in a set of large-scale military drills that one Chinese military analyst called a “rehearsal of possible real action.” On Monday, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) announced its Eastern Theater Command organized maritime, aerial, conventional missile and other forces around Taiwan and carried out drills around the island from Friday to Sunday. The Eastern Theater Command said the drills were intended “to test and improve the joint operations capability of multiple services and arms.” While Taiwan governs itself as an independent nation, China considers the island a part of its territory and Chinese officials have repeatedly discussed “reunification” with the island, including by means of military force.
