Trying to assassinate the current president is the dumbest thing one can do. It is an act of war
Lone Wolves

And if the Dems actually hire em, can say those were Lone Wolves too and if connected with a Democratic politician/businessman/celebrity

Well then, thrown to the wolves from that other pack

Poland wants us as well
Eastern Europe still remembers being under the boot of Communism and so are willing to call out Socialism as its nicer face. Poland has the unique experience of being occupied by both Communists and Nazis, Russians and Germans within living memory so they're willing to play whatever ball keeps that from happening again.

It's really funny how nations that have recently been or currently are in actual danger really like the US being around, almost as if we're not some evil empire but a mostly reliable arbiter of peace. But hey, that's crazy talk.

Lmao, I still remember a comment thread on Danbooru (yes, really) under a political cartoon saying that Trump being friendly with Putin would mean the Baltic trio was getting hung out to dry.
The Trump administration did more to support Ukrainian autonomy in six months than the Obama administration ever did. That line of attack has always been horseshit.

Honestly, I expect an attempted assassination to occur

A large number of them to occur, over the years
I doubt it. It's one thing to 'oops' a known pedophile with no more friends and waning power. Killing the US president is a dangerous line for any party or organization. The Kennedy assassination still raises flags anytime its brought up and forensics technology and 24/7 camera phone coverage means that covering it up is more dubious than ever. The risks simply outweigh the rewards, especially to people used to working over the course of 50 years to get what they want.

Reagan was almost killed, and there is video footage of it, so no matter what, trying to kill the president is going to be the hardest thing in the world

Say speaking of Poland isn't the second operational AEGIS ashore going operational there this year? Oh and they also ordered at least 32(I assume that like any defense contract involving fighter aircraft there were options to get more down the line) F-35s this year to replace their SU-22s and MIG-29s

China is close to collpase, so I doubt it
China has been close to collapse for the last 15 years, so I'm always doubtful when people prophesise their imminent doom, as they seem to be quite adept at kicking the can down the hall. Sure, some day, but I don't think it will be any time soon.

That's the thing about Communist/Socialist or Totalitarian powers, even if they're doing horribly economically and have one extremely burdened bureaucracy, they can still keep on going

Some point, they'll only be able to get food by buying it elsewhere

I think COVID and the new swine flu outbreak will definitely hurt them

Vietnam is welcoming, as is Taiwan and Korea to take all these industrial stuff.
Other third world countries like mine could probably use it, we maybe way less likely to bother with all that dumbass politicization and censorship

And that “good enough” idea regarding products

You all need it as well, I have heard your country likes America to a degree, because of MacArthur. I could be wrong.

I also know you have a terrorist group on some of your further islands so.

The Philipines could use the economic boost, like what Indonesia is getting
