realize I'm also quite limited in what I can discuss.
I can say about this present war, along the veins you mentioned, is
that there are three tiers, the bottom of which is the war on
terrorism and their sponsoring host nations.
that a nation is not necessarily a monolith, particularly one with an
elite ruling class, such as China and Russia.
One part can be sincere and helpful, even in the war on the
terrorists, and the other part may actually be sneaking supplies and
weapons to help the terrorists, etc.
top tier is secret maneuvering by those controlling cliques in such
nations possessing the great superweapons, and scheming to "bleed
the U.S. dragon" to the point where it will be safe to strike and
you have the bottom tier, which is the war we have declared, and you
have the middle tier, consisting of China and Russia and others, and
you have the upper tier consisting of cliques in China, Russia, and
other nations as well.
you account all of it, it is really WW III, and we are going to take
some very heavy casualties -- more than we have taken in all the wars
in our previous history.
