    ^^Sigh. I wish. All of those colonialist scums fighting and killing each other. However, no such thing will happen. You forget that the Euro powers are nowhere as strong as they used to be 6 decades ago, especially Germany. And they're all part of NATO, which means that if one country attacks another, all other members of NATO will defend the attacked.

    The author forgot that Britain has nukes. And a WW2 like scenario is not possibe in a nuclear word.

    ^^France too has nukes. But Germany has been forced to forgo them. In any case, nukes won't prevent WW3. After all, the "thousand bomber raids" of the British against the Germans, though reduced their cities to rubble and caused more than half a million casualties, still did not result in Germany capitulating to the allies.

    So what if France has nukes?
    What I earlier meant was Britain having nukes would prevent an all out invasion scenario from France.

    Nukes are the only reason WW3 has not happened. Any way if deterrence fails and WW3 does happen then its armaggeddon.We won't be around either

    Nukes did not prevent the wars between USSR and China. Or between India and Pakistan. Or Britain and Argentina. Or US and China.

    Nukes won't prevent WW3 either. And WW3 won't result in armageddon. Even if all the nukes in the world were to explode, humanity will still be around.

    The threat of nukes is exaggerated for political expediency.

    The war between USSR and china was a brief border war.
    There were no nukes in 71 or 65. If you are referring to Kargil, it was a limited conflict that's more or less a border war.

    In 82 Britain was a nuke power, Argentina was not. I was not denying the possibility of war between asymmetrical powers.

    Deterence is only between two opposing N powers.

    And yes there is no guarantee that WW3 will not happen. But N-deterence has prevented it so far.

    Europe deserves to be destroyed. Land of 700 million lazy idiots with a huge sense of entitlement.

    From eastern forces though rather than them fighting amongst themselves. While we are at it lets not forget north america...those gun totting wankers haven't experienced enemy soldiers and tanks roaming across there streets killing and destroying everything at sight.

    ^^Vive la France!

    Yea right. :lol: Don't kid yourself. The French have been losing to Britain for the past 800 years. A video game simulation isn't gonna change much on the ground.

    It seems the french are seen like clueless and incompetent when it comes to war according to the english. Read there comments below the article.

    Ive even seen them making jokes like the french bend over quicker than a 5 quid whore.

    Why did the Frenchies plant trees along the Champs-Elysees? Because the Germans like to march in the shade. :D

    lol They're not offended at the implausibility of the whole scenario, rather the scenario of the French routing them. Tbh, history aside, the French would defeat the American lackey Britain in a no nuke scenario.

    So whatever happened to Ukraine? How did Russia invade Moldova? With or without the consent of Ukraine?

    It isn't just a game, it is a naval combat simulation used by the US Naval Academy. Without aircraft carriers MN stomps the RN. The French Army at 130,000 will be nearly twice the size of the British Army and with a bunch of FELIN equipped soldiers would stomp them. Not to mention all the reserve equipment France keeps and British don't. With French land bases protected by SAMP/T there isn't jack the RAF can do against the ALA when their bases are protected by nothing but little Rapier and Starstreak... :laugh:

    That is only if there was a France vs UK war. What if the US comes to the aid of UK, which I believe it will, never mind Lafayette?
