What will Antarctic warfare look like? Posted on May 21, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor What will Antarctic warfare look like?
are the glownogs of PrepHole even allowed to talk about Antarctica?
a frozen conflict
CARLOS I SWEAR TO GOD
Isn't Antarctica basically all divided by different nations? Who's going to let them build a base there? Are they going to invade the British part of it?
IIRC yes but none of the claims are internationally recognized. The bigger problem is that Antarctica is a demilitarized zone.
Technically there are a bunch of nations which have claims, most of which can't (or won't) be enforced. The Chinese are in the process of building a couple bases (on Norway and New Zealand's claims, iirc)
There’s a stupid treaty from the late 1800s or something that the Chinese empire was a signatory on because the British and French were doing weird diplomatic things to get one over on each other that allows the current Chinese regime to build a base on a Danish or Norwegian island that’s right next to the North Pole; the island already has a bunch of bases on it from other countries because of said treaty but no one wants China there and realistically they would have no access to the North Pole if it wasn’t for said treaty. Idk about the South Pole since I think most expeditions leave from Chile and Antarctica is considered unclaimable by the UN, but I’m sure no country that claims a part of Antarctica wants to give China a foothold.
Apparently they have 4 (+1) bases in Antartica, but idk whose claims they're on
I know, I know.
I guess the Antarctic treaty basically says that no one can militarize the Antarctic and that it is a scientific reserve but not that people have to renounce their claims or that countries have to recognize the claims of others. So I guess no one can really stop China by law if they want to build a base in the Antarctic for “science.”
Yeah, the difference between "military" and "surveillance" wasn't well established in the Antarctic Treaty. To be fair, I'm sure our (the west's) "science" outposts do a little bit of snooping too.
Why dont they just renig said treaty and tell the chinks tough shit? Its not like anyone actually likes china anymore
Literally how is this supposed to benefit them?
It's for regime stability. These turd world autocratic governents have to put a show on to remind the proles they're stronk and definitely not a shithole..
A snowmoron base

Oh fuck this is an actual issue for them.
Good catch. It is a thing in the NWT and Nunavut.
A good joke, but Islam is fortunately or unfortunately not retarded enough to mandate suicide by starvation. The general rule is "if it would result in the death of the sick, it no longer applies". Like for example if pork is the only food available, it is acceptable to eat.
Conscript in my unit tried to go full ramadan during summer in Finland and passed out around 4 pm.
Never go full ramadan.
Makes sense, Catholicism is the same way.
Those ships will sink long before they get there.
If Operation Highjump is an indicator, then ngmi.
>what are russisn bombers
Limited and mostly naval. It’s too inhospitable to support major troop movements.
The Cold War all over again.
Antarctica is Australian ice
What about the unclaimed bit?
Go claim it loser.
That's Elder Thing country. You don't want to mess with the Elder Things.
What a strange bunch of countries to claim land.
most of them are close to it.
and it was a norwegian who got to the south pole first, so they can call dibs
>Chile, the UK, and Argentina overlap
>Australia is on both sides of France
>big gap nobody wants
What in the hell?
>muslims all move to antarctica
>enforce brutal and inhumane sharia law in the most forbidding environment on earth
>leave everyone else alone
They do that already, the problem is when they leave their inhospitable shitholes and bring their retardation with them
>mfw imagining hajjis who wear gloves and a scarf in 20-degree weather going to antarctica
Assuming this is real, isn't it against international law to establish any kind of non-scientific settlement on Antarctica? What would the ramifications of that look like?
Iran is just sending some rust bucket ships to visit it. No plans for a base yet or really probably ever
International law is a meme
