There is ample reason to anticipate trouble from China. It has axes to grind with the Western powers, Japan, and the half of Korea that isn’t already a Chinese satellite. Chinese government has begun to mutate into something more closely resembling fascism than communism… and fascism has a very poor track record of living in harmony with neighboring countries. The mysterious, fractious Chinese Communist Party is described by Mosher and DeVore as “a modern-day Game of Thrones with nuclear implications,” and their spiritual godfather, Chairman Mao, spoke openly of hegemonic designs over the entire planet.
Game of Thrones (TV series) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The cable television series closely follows the multiple storylines of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, and author Martin has stated that the show’s pilot script was very faithful to his work. Set in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, Game of Thrones chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among the kingdom’s noble families for control of the Iron Throne; as the series opens, additional threats from the snow and ice covered region north of Westeros and from the eastern continent, Essos, across a narrow sea are simultaneously beginning to rise.
