    Time to trade your FDE for something in a shade of white. The Arctic may be our next battle ground. According to the Washington Post, the US is preparing to counter possible threats from China and Russian that may arise as the World races to tap into the resources exposed by the thawing Artic.

    See the Washington Post article linked here:

    Yup.

    Maybe I'm paranoid, but I feel like a major war is brewing between the superpowers.

    See! I knew there was a legitimate reason I want all my guns painted stormtrooper white. I'm not crazy, I'm just forward thinking.

    It's the Washington Compost for a reason, misdirection. Russia and China hate each other. China sees Sibera as a "Northern Resource Area" and plays a really, really long game. Nope, Russia and China would face off before we do. Neither has either the air or sea power to do anything but tick us off. ;)

    We need a few Norwegians and Finns, they know how to conduct conventional warfare in the snow, the Swiss too.
    Apart from oil, what's the draw?

    We have been patrolling the Arctic and "going under the ice" with submarines for decades.
