Brilliant analysis of the attitude of illiberal liberals in the USA who think any price is worth paying in return for finding or fabricating grounds to impeach Trump or somehow remove him form power, and whose obsession is playing into the hands of the deluded lunatics in the Military — Industrial Complex who believe they can win a nuclear war with Russia. Any attack on Russia would certainly bring in China or their side, Iran (not such a formidable military force but a strategically important staging post, and possibly Pakistan (an independent nuclear power.)
While the idea that the USA is still the dominant military force globally gartes a little because while victory over Russia OR China is possible though far from assured, the more sane voices in The Pentagon and DoD have warned America could not hope to take on both simultaneously.
The sad fact is that while both Russia and China recognise there could be no winners, survival on a trashed planet is the best outcome any nation could hope for, influential voices in the USA do not seem able to understand the inevitable conseqyences of such a war.
