In recent weeks, the USA has been challenged on land, on the sea and now in the air.

On land, Iran and Russia are apparently ignoring all past treaties and agreements on the development of nuclear weapons. Politically, China and Russia are holding hands, for the time being anyway, in threatening the USA.

Chinese Navy vessels have on several occasions sailed perilously close to US Navy ships in the South China Sea, to warn them away from what China claims are it's territorial water. This claim despite UN rulings to the contrary. President Xi Lin Ping has ordered his generals to "prepare for War".

More recently, a US Air Force plane was "buzzed" by a fully armed Russian SU27 jet fighter over the Black Sea, which passed close to the much slower and cumbersome US plane, and then turned sharply and ignited afterburners so that the American plane suffered the full consequences of it's power. The potential for tragedy was very real.

One would hope that the US and it's allies are also girding their loins for battle in a heightened preparation should that war come.

What is it good for?

Not that I am anti-capitalist, more like anti-media elite.

But Iran, Russia and China are not "threatening" America, they're making noise, and talking big.  They are not an existential threat to America, by any measure, although they may be an existential threat to some of our allies.  With Donald Trump at the helm, there may be more chance of a miscalculation that would foolishly commit us to something.  For not supporting an ally at the wrong time can lead to war, just as much as supporting them at the wrong time might lead to war as well.  It is a question of the right response, not too little, nor too much, but all right.
