Ukraine Is a Trifle

Yours truly, at Dinocrat:
2. This crisis is nothing compared to what looms ahead. Russia’s GDP is about 12% of that of the USA or EU; China’s, more than 50%.

Wait till the Chinese leadership assesses their economy to be robust enough to underwrite a military of global reach. There are already a few indications, but we ain’t seen nuthin’ yet.
Where next? The South China Sea is an obvious candidate, but there are others.
