(Rbaalrajhi @ Feb. 24 2005,16:25) That's true only to the point of whether you can safeguard your oil resources... Who would win a war between China and Iran? Â (That's not necesarily a hypothetical question, China is going to have to find a way to deal with oil shortages in the next 20-30 years) That depends, iran have nuclear, china have many people, it depend how you fight. But Iran will win because there are more people of Islam there, so the grace of Allah will be with them. Dude, I hate to break it to you, but there's not exactly a strong correlation between Islamic faith and military success. Â When's the last time an Islamic state has won a war against a non-Islamic state? Â I think you'd have to go back to the time of the Crusades (and don't say Afghanistan/USSR). Â Even the French have been more successful in warfare than the "people of Islam." Well, there was the Algerian Rebellion which was the first defeat of western army by non-turkic muslim forces since the Crusades. But, that was against the French, so that really doesn't count. I don't know why Americans are so suprised the French wouldn't help us get Saddam out of Iraq. After all, the French wouldn't get the Germans out of France.
