Interesting, video-game-like perspective of a military battle in which Chinese forces defeat… somebody.
Consider this – for decades, China’s one-child policy and the preference for baby boys and gender based infanticide means China has about 50 million “surplus” males – a society-wide imbalance.
In America, a few hundred body bags of soldiers coming home means millions of citizens will be crying for peace, regardless of whether the fate of the world hangs in the balance or not. American society has no tolerance for lots of dead US soldier coffins.
China could lose a soldier every second, 3600 an hour, 86,400 a day, 2,592,000 a month – and still keep fighting for a long time.
Militarily, is America still superior to China? Even if China does not yet equal America on the global battlefield, what about in the Asia/Pacific region with shorter supply lines from China? And what about next year? When will China pass the US if they didn’t already?
Even if the USA maintains “superiority” and could inflict a 10-1 kill ratio against an enemy, could the US withstand losing even 360 soldiers an hour, or 8,640 a day, or 259,200 soldiers a month?
If WWIII is ever fought conventionally on battlefields, it won’t be pretty. And it wouldn’t just be China. Who do Russians view as “the enemy”? How about the Islamic world? What are the alternatives to a conventional battlefield: nuclear war? A New World Order of cooperation?
Aside from the Second Coming, I’m not looking forward to any of the war scenarios that might come first before the end of the world as we know it.
David, what do you think of this: http://watchfortheday.org/1260tetrad.html
Do you have an e-mail we can contact you by? I cannot find it here.
I am impressed by the astronomical positions the site you link to describes for September 23, 2017. However, the person stressing its importance focuses too much on irrelevant things: “The 9th of Av 2024 will be the 110th anniversary from WW1 beginning and 30 years from Shoemaker-Levy” (these are not meaningful in terms of end times Bible prophecy) and ignores very relevant problems with his timeline: “With an interval of 1260 days between the signs, it would seem logical that the day count represented a leg of the Tribulation. But it cannot anymore unless one is to believe we are in the Tribulation, but we are NOT. However, this sign straight from Revelation 12 that appears in the sky from September 23 to September 25 cannot be ignored.” Either it marks the mid-point or end of the tribulation as he suggests, or it doesn’t. He seems to say that we can’t ignore its significance because it describes events (or at least the sky) in the final seven years, but it can’t be because we are too close to that date without having entered the final seven years, yet we can’t ignore it because it does mark those years…
In End Times and 2019 I explain why I focus on a similar astronomical configuration on the Feast of Tabernacles in 2019 instead.
As for my email, send me yours and I will contact you.
