It’s well known that we are loved by each of those countries. Could an attack on Iran be used as a catalyst for China & North Korea to attack us?

I doubt our military would be able to prevent those two foreign powers from setting foot on U.S. soil.


NK states a war with the U.S. is inevitable.

Sure they could. Will they, not likely. They can't get here as they have little or no Navy. Our Navy on the other hand....

I hope they form an "Axis Powers" so we can smash all three of them. Yummy, so many targets! They'll never make it onto US soil other than landing a few worn-out troops in Alaska.

Impossible.

China is one case of pneumonia away from total collapse....North Korea would blow themselves up if they don't starve first, and IRAN's navy consists of camels outfitted with pontoons.

China can't AFFORD the cost of going to war with their largest economic crutch - us.

We have a better chance of getting attacked by a large spanish speaking contingent entering the US illegally through our loose Mexican border......

I guess your right.

Watching the 60 minutes episode on NK got me spooked. Coupled with that and the fact that we will attack Iran sooner rather than later made me ponder whether China would take advantage of our over allocated military.

Oh please, China and Iran? What you been smoking? They hate hajjis as much as we do.

Although that combined they make a pretty formidable enemy, I don't think they are technologically up to speed to take on the US, but they will be soon (Thanks Al Gore and Clinton you commie fuxtix!)

If it came to a war with those countries allied together, it would be a short and quick nuclear battle. The instant they made the first move we would annihilate them, it would be the only way. I think that England and Israel would be on our side. England is a strong ally and Isreal will jump on the opportunity to get rid of Iran and whatever nations jump to her aide in the Mid East.

I think that this current President would certainly let them know prior to any acts of war that the US would use Nukes in defense of its territory and citizens and as an offensive weapon if we felt threatened. That is why I voted for him.

Those three couldn't even coordinate a meeting

They wont unite, they are all way to egotistical to join forces and would end up doing to each other what Hitler did to Stalin.

However, if one was fighting us, the others would probably join in and see that we were engaged in a war with the other and see it as a perfect time to strike against our thin(ning) forces.

China will never touch the US for economics....won't happen. They can't afford it.

Ever hear of a place called Taiwan?
