Chinese Checkmate

I’m not the first to observe that those on the left who seem to want open war with their domestic enemies are slightly mad.  Among other considerations, which side has all the guns?

The always insightful Richard Fernandez (who seems to have concluded that the cold civil war is doomed to become hot) notes that we will all likely lose, and China will be the real winner.

“The dilemma for the Left is they can’t indulge their fantasies in the face of a peer competitor any more than an army can divide its forces in the face of the foe. They will need the Deplorables to survive. But they haven’t realized that yet.”
