After Brexit, the UK has no choice but to become an American vassal state?

Recommended Posts

Hi gents. I would love to have some spirited discussion here about this recent piece by Peter Zeihan. In my opinion, he's one of the better geopolitical writers working today. In no way am I trying to troll. I think this is a worthwhile piece from a rare intelligent American cheerleader. 

 

Here is the piece on Brexit in full, please give it a read:

I'll include a few interesting quotes:

 

"The issue with London from the American perspective is harsh in its simplicity. Only three countries have ever threatened the U.S. mainland directly. The Soviet Union aimed nukes at the United States, and so Washington will typically take steps overt and covert to whittle away at Russian power. Mexico and the United States fought a land war, that ended with the Americans taking half of Mexico’s territory.
 

 

Curious what you guys think? Hyperbolic? Or on point?

Highly unlikely. The US would have to invest more than China, various Arab Kingdoms and even the Russians.
