I'm beginning to think the conspiracy theorists may be right (especially if Russia and China collude)
Step 1 - Ensure the US elects an idiot as president (not hard)
Step 2 - "accidentally" release a deadly virus (dead easy, 2 labs in the vicinity)
Step 3 - keep it low key with disinformation until it's spread itself internationally (also easy)
Step 4 - Clamp down hard at home to stamp it out (easy if you're a totalitarian state and know it's coming)
Step 5 - Let the US president and his followers do the rest.
Total casualties in this war so far:-
China - 4,634 (stable)
US - 153,845 (and climbing)
Step 6 - Get the US president to withdraw 12,000 troops from Germany ?
No conspiracy.....Oil price has gone to hell in a handcart and Russia are feeling that, China is still building coal fired power stations, so taking advantage.
Russia does not have a race problem, unlike the West and who do you think is whipping it all up? St. Petersburg is bot central and they have massive funding to cause social unrest in the west.
China and the Ruskies palling up, seems obvious to me and I have said it before, there is a real shit storm coming, the virus was just a weakener, we have so many wonderous things to show you, next year will be the bumpiest ride ever and it is coming, it always has and it always will.....All because of the male ego.
WW3 proper is going to be glorious, especially when they fuck up the power grids and watch us devour each other, it will be fucking awesome.
