>turn on TV
>China has attacked an American aircaft carrier
How would your country react?
I honestly wanted to insult your country's military performance but I can't think of a single instance, good or bad, where New Zealand did anything ever. In the high school that is military history, you guys are like the bubble boy that got homeschooled =\ sorry bro
>in b4 ANZAC
We all know who does the heavy lifting in that alliance
we would wonder if all those chinks at our country would have to go back to their motherland
that would cripple our economy in the counterfeit/pirate products sector
It would definitely be very shocking, but I don't think people would perceive it as badly because 1. An aircraft carrier is not nearly as monumental two skyscrapers and 2. an aircraft carrier is a military target and not many civilians would be onboard. But Americans are very prideful, especially of our military, so an attack of that magnitude would definitely mean war.
Celebrate. I finally have an excuse to kill slants and commies.
remove mainlander REMOVE MAINLANDER
you are the bus-shitting idiot you are the nihao smell. Return to dai-lok
Mao we will never forgive you. dailok rascal BUT FUCK STINK Nanking massacre best day of my life. do not forget ww2 YUPBUN WE WILL GET YOU. Wow dailok yun smell so bad haha i can smell it. REMOVE MAINLANDER FROM THE PREMISES
heung-gong greatest colony
if this happened tomorrow it would just be a false flag perpetrated by Barack Hussein Obama who is not my president
Trump will nuke China the day after taking office so this hypothetical would be pointless then
Probably wonder why since it doesn't really make any sense for them to do that. Like they gain nothing, they probably couldn't beat us, and even if they could it would be massively costly and pointless, plus it would probably mean an end to trade relations between us. Plus there's the fact that we're in so much financial debt to them and I think attacking us would be a pretty good reason for the debt to be considered canceled.
So yeah, first thought probably "well that's pretty stupid, I wonder why they'd do a thing like that?"
It sails one of our 10 other super carriers over and starts bombing/missile striking the sweet and sour sauce out of those fuckers.
The defense minister obviously doesn't agree with Trudeau on the matter.
He of all people knows that pulling our jets out is retarded as fuck. Hopefully he puts some sense into the discussion
That shit only happens once before some of these start wrecking their shit. We have litterally everything from supersonic bombers (B-1 Lancer), stealth bombers (B-2) to fighters (F-35 and F-22) and drones (X-47) with more carriers then anyone else.
Back in '50 MacArthur wanted to burn everything to Beijing. We'll make good on that promise if china ever fucked with us.
Do absolutely nothing because we have no naval or air power whatsoever to defend ourselves with in the event of an attack even though that would never happen. We also have no obligation to do anything anyway because hippies destroyed ANZUS.
They'd be telling us not to escalate while we're curb stomping China General LeMay style.
>with their hand-me-down russian aircraft carriers
>their Cold War era russian jets
>and their complete lack of modern mainland supply logistics, which could be crippled by just a few shots to their rail system, sent direct from the wings of freedom
>decides, despite all this, to make war on papa burger
Uncle Sam fondles Zedong
You wouldn't though. In reality there would be a swift response which would be contained and then talks of economic punishment.
There is absolutely no way either side would risk all out war, there's nothing at all to gain from it.
>OHH GOD NOO WHAT WILL HAPPEN,WHO WILL PROTECT US FOR FREE NOW??
>wait don't they have like 50 of those
>ohhh yhea, who gives a shit then
> yhea for a second i was scared we would have to pay for our own defense
I would enjoy it a great deal
thought I don't to pay too much about my electronics
I am actually quite interested in how the Chinese minorities in every western country react, and what they would do
I mean over here in Australia, they are pretty fucking huge and would probably get in the way of any efforts we might make to put up a front against China
>americunts being attacked
would be BEST DAY OF MY LIFE
(after 9/11 of course)
It's not unfair to say that if the confrontation took place within range of Chinese bases it would not be a good scenario for the US.
Most serious military experts already claim that the area surrounding taiwain is basically under full Chinese military control right now. The Chinese have advanced enough weaponry to keep us out.
That is a huge reversal from what it was like in the 1990s.
But it is fair to say that in a full out confrontation between the PRC and the US out in open water, the USN would win. The Chinese are likely very aware of this and would never engage America like that.
>If things escalate, Europe shall be neutral.
honestly id like to see commies bombed you so bad. but arabs 9/11 was good too anyways. by the way, youre the most hated country in world, no joke
>Don't remember Japan do anything too bad in 30s-60s
>implying being hated only in mid-east
Sanctions. Russia brought in S-300's so Turks stopped airstrike bombings in Syria. Russia proceeded to kill thousands of Turkmen in Syria.
Erdogan is like that alien Roach in Men in Black who got triggered by the Russian bug man crushing small roaches.
Not how it works senpai.
Replacing one for one our old supercarriers....
Nimitz is from 1975. 41 years active service and 45 since it was created.
Its replacement, the Ford, is going to be active later this year.
>This is severely going to impact my ability to drink my tea..
Would legit be a top 3 things I would think.. first my job relies on Chinese shit so would probably go out of business too.
We'd have no business in this.
If anything china is an economical partner.
We're not Americans, we don't go and die in a random desert, fighting pointless wars "to bring freedumbs"
You'd have no business in a WW3 scenario? Because what OP just said would lead to WW3.
Also not to mention NATO, and the countless other alliances/treaties that would be in question.
And how did you come to that conclusion?
Also, we know for sure Japan/UK/AUS/Korea would be involved in this conflict at a minimum. Uk/AUS are the only two other countries that have backed us up in every single military conflict, including the Iraq invasion.
