    The elephants were very powerful - but infeasibly naive with regard to tactics and strategy. Without that plot mechanic, it's a very dull book.

    Also - "world government"? Not how I'd have described it. More of a cottage industry - just like government really ought to be, right?

    You should re-read it then. Remember how the Fed Gov't basically suppressed an entire state in the North-Eastern U.S. to build the ship?

    Oh yeah, it's hardly like there was an invading species doing any suppressing at the time.



    Wait. You do remember the invasion part, don't you?

    Arguing at cross-purposes doesn't make you look at all intelligent, methinks.

    Anyhoo, this article from ZeroHedge expounds on the issue a bit more. No, not space-faring elephants. The topic.

    I mentioned it earlier, but I was reading an uncommon book which discusses the Chinese need to go beyond multi-dimensional warfare, and it sure looks like this is their response to Obama & Bernanke (and previous to that, Bush & Greenspan) deliberately trying to devalue the dollar.

    I Guess they were Asian Elephants?

    Just based on the thread.
    Though as I remember the invasion was a success in Africa?

    Kind of back on topic.

    Why China forced a confrontation at sea with the US Navy

    The USS Cowpers had to veer sharply to avoid colliding with a Chinese military vessel in international waters earlier this month, the US Navy has confirmed. What message was China sending?

    OK, I'll bite on that. Since when are the US doing that in the Pacific?

    China is just doing what's common in international affairs: Doing what they can get away with. Will they have success? If not, how is it prevented? And whoever wants to prevent it, why does he do it himself?
