Oh China, with their confusing eating utensils, daunting business savvy and ominously large loans--it’s only a matter of time before they come to collect their due from our freedom coffers. That’s exactly what happens in the Fallout universe, where China invades Alaska in 2066, leading to the breakout of biological and nuclear war to capture America’s…freedom…pipelines. Yes, that.
Admittedly, America maaaay have provoked them a little bit. In this version of events, China gets to the last oil reserve in the world first and starts processing it for themselves. Of course America can’t have that, so it possibly-kinda sabotages the whole operation and installs its own rig. In response, China invades Alaska and sets up spy operations all across the U.S., leading to full-scale war. Then somebody sets off a nuke and, well, you know the rest. So maybe America’s a little to blame because, well, we’re not the best sharers, okay?
