Doomstead Diner Discussion: Whither China?

On Sunday afternoon, June 15, the Doomstead Diner hosted a video discussion of the prospects for China. In addition to Doomstead‘s RE and Monsta (or whatever their real names are), the discussion included me, Tom Lewis, of The Daily Impact and Ugo Bardi of the University of Florence, Italy and the blog Cassandra Legacy. Or whatever our real names are. Running time is just over an hour — an hour you will never get back.

    The Chinese Navy is going subsurface. The aircraft carrier is obsolete. Chinese submarine power will destroy the USN aircraft carrier battle groups at will. Countless anti ship muddled will be launched from multiple submarines and that’ll be the end of the battle.

    The New Silk Road is interesting in that it will unite the core of Eurasia with rail. See Mackinder’s heartland theory.

    The best way to move oil is by boat. That’s why the U.S. Navy exists. To secure sea lanes. Oil is peaking and natural gas is up next. The best pay to move gas is by pipeline. Securing land routes for natural gas pipes is the future conflict trend, to wit Syria.
