For some reason, I feel that the War on Terror is the slow start of World War III with Russia and China. I don't want to be the doomsday caller here because I may just be wrong, but I think that within 10-20, maybe even 30 years, the geo-political struggle for regional dominance in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe, will inevitably bring a confrontation between the US and China. And it is there that I have thw following questions. 1) If we invaded North Korea, would China back North Korea militarily? 2) If China defended North Korea, what would Russia do? Would it become WWIII? 3) If China invaded any of its neighbors, what would we do? 4) If we got into a war with China, where would Russia stand? Russia isn't communist anymore put would it return to its communist roots and defend its communist ally China, or would Russia fight alongside with us for the sake of democracy? 5) If there was a war between Russia and China, what would it look like? Would there be three fronts? (Russia in Europe, China in Asia, and both Russian and Chinese forces in the Middle East).
