:( I would accept a ride in F-16 but it will make me cry because of Pakistan affiliation with F-16, I want a ride in a Fighter which PAF doesn't have :D Something to brag about when I go back or come to PDF hahaha. On a serious note, this dude is very serious about China defeating USA.
Get ready to puke......

had taken a ride on my brothers F-18C when he was in the Marine. It's straight puke for the next hour after you come back down to earth.

Puke is my least concern if I ever fly in a fighter jet lol I would probably die hahah or least Pass out. Almost throw up in Plane when I was flying from Turkey to USA, had to eat 3 gums to avoid that.

Problem is, the technology of refining Rare Earth Material has already existed outside China, both Canada and Australia, to a lesser degree, Vietnam and Brazil already have had their technology developed. As I said previously, since the trade volume is very low, it would not cost the US billions of dollars to switch in order to make a difference...




Also, it's not about profits, it's about resource security, I am pretty damn sure US will continue to buy Chinese REE products as long as the sales continue uninterrupted. But that does not mean US cannot or should not devote money to secure alternative source in case that supply chain was interrupted.
China is just waiting for the world to enter a more peaceful and multipolar world. I don't think there will be war between China and the United States. Taiwan is an inalienable territory of China.

That does not mean US should not seek resource security.

I mean I don't foresee China will go to war with Australia, do you feel okay if China continues to depend on Australia iron and coal mine?? You would want resource security, do you??

Also multi-polar world means more war, which mean resource security is more important

Then you really shouldn't go on one......

You probably WILL die from a heart attack...

The F-111 is dual seat in a capsule setup. But the F-111 is retired and all have been decommed. Sorry.

I am ok with standing on the side admire the engineers work (Fighter Jets) and those who fly them. There is a huge Graveyard of Old planes, I wonder if its open for civilians ? and is there some sort of requirement like you have to be a citizen to go there ?

I thought F-35's have dual seat variant ? I knew A-10's doesn't have it because its one of my favorite jets, but F-35's too ? do they even have plans to make dual seats ?

You can work in an aviation museum, but Graveyard (like Davis-Monthan) you will probably need some security clearance.

Davis-Monthan is an official USAF facility so not open for civilians, except for tightly controlled tourist drives. On the other hand, completely civilian museums like Pima have many jets from military to civilian, even Soviet era fighters.


Pima is great other than the National Museum of the USAF in Dayton, Ohio. Been to each three times. On the 3rd time I went to Pima, I rode on my Buell S1 with a bunch of guys and gals. It was a great trip for all.

I thought F-35's have dual seat variant ? I knew A-10's doesn't have it because its one of my favorite jets, but F-35's too ? do they even have plans to make dual seats ?
No plan for F-35 dual seats.

Davis-Monthan is the one often shown in movies right ? Didn't realized that it was an active USAF base, I thought it was a huge Museum.

Anything in Florida ? I saw Kennedy space center/Museum in Florida, that would be a nice interesting place to visit if its open to civilians of course.

This is a problem that relevant enterprises need to deal with. In a multipolar world without empires, the role of the United Nations will increase. Will find an effective way to reduce the war.It will also encourage the emergence of more regional economic cooperation organizations such as the European Union, ASEAN and the African Union.As a military organization, NATO is not in line with the trend of world development.The world currency was created through consultation by the United Nations.Facts have proved that regional economic cooperation organizations are the most effective way to maintain regional peace and reduce wars.

I heard of several air museums in Florida but never been to any of them. But based on my experience, the two best are the official USAF museum in Dayton, Ohio, and the civilian Pima in Arizona.

There will NOT be, and it's wishful thinking to think UN role is going to increase. As it was already functionless with a monopoly. Even with multipolar world, there will always be 2 or 3 camps divided between the world as it is today, if UN cannot function in a unipolar world, what make you think they can function in a multipolar world? When the world is even more fragmented.

I mean, economic cooperation didn't do shit in regional politics. Was EU manage to stop the War in Ukraine? Did AU manage to stop all the civil war and killing in Africa? Asean is a bit better, but then if China do invade Taiwan, what can ASEAN actaully do??

You can't run for President, you are not natural born citizen.....

How does the United Nations play a role when there is only one empire and a NATO military organization? There is also a NATO on top of the European Union, how to avoid the war in Ukraine? Entering a multipolar world, China should support the abolition of permanent members. Gradually reduce nuclear weapons.
