what do you think of this war scenario (need oppinions)?
I am a writer pretty much working on my own on this story. I have no one really to turn to other then sources declassified for public use. I may be so far off on my idea that its funny but i have gotten some interesting oppinions from some writers i have talked to through emails.
Russia, (not sure when) is in termoil. Tired of a government that cant seem to run the country properly (various reasons), seperatists plan to put pressure on the government to stand down from power. Their plan, reistablish a imperial style government (perhaps even rebuild the Soviet Union).
They have seized key locations in Russia, Siberia, and have several allies in the former republics.
Russian forces attempt a quick attack by their best troops to thrawt the civil war and are defeated. This leaves the two forces in a even shooting war.
The United Nations is not sure how to handle the crisis and is not hurrying to build a force to send. However the United States sees several problems could happen with a unstable Russia. These include a uncontrolled military as well as the nuclear weapons they own.
The United States sends forces in, and takes side with Moscow, but finds access to runways and other bases very limited or not at all since fighting and time has damaged a lot of them.
Using Emergency runway building the US builds temporary bases where needed. The battle goes from there as the US, Russia, and the Seperatists fight for control.
and this is my problem.
China is a huge importer of resources (some 70% or more) including oil and other items. Russia is a huge mostly untapped bed of major resources. China would probably gladly take posestion of oil fields and such if the chance was there.
NATO wants to expand its horizons into a unstable Russia to fortify its position. A good example has been Georgia lately.
My idea is that the US suddendly could find itself on a greater war if it cant stabilize Russia fast enough. It must decide if NATO’s plans are in its best interests, and how to deal with China on top of that.
No one is sure who is on who’s side in this growing war.
let me know what you think?
