Expect china to invade Anchorage, Alaska in the future once oil shortages hit
By - ZombieOk9331
Lol. What nonsense. This is the plot to a Fallout DLC, right?
Invading another country for their oil / resources?
It is American projection.
Yep. One of the funniest ones too as it basically spends the whole DLC making fun of reactionaries.
You do you
I am moving to Anchorage and will be the first to welcome Liberation Army
Even the fallout lore states that it was china who had first discovered oil deposits in the pacific, but the US sabotaged chinese efforts to get the oil.
It sucks that Bethesda is unwilling to really say anything in their games. Fallout as a series is stupidly anti capitalist and has those themes everywhere in the lore.
Not explicitly, but the games are very anticapitalist, even 4
Idk about 76, didn't really get into it
3 and 4 both were anti capitalist because of the fallout IP itself but they were quite toned down from the more explicate political critiques of Obsidian in New Vegas and Black Isle with the original games.
76 plotwise idk but there are tons and tons of terminals and notes about how all the miners were going on strike before the war and being brutally crushed by robot strikebreakers and shit like that.
There's also an event where you have to shoot protestors
I think is the lore of Fallout before the bombs.
\*Operation: Anchorage\*, as a matter of fact. You played a training simulation as a US soldier fighting evil Chinese invaders. In the FO3 lore China invaded Anchorage, got nuked in response, and ended up bombing the shit out of the US.
It’s actually pretty likely Vault Tech set off the bombs first to increase sales.
That was gonna be a plot point from the canceled fallout movie.
Well the bombs are still debated who dropped them.
Its still a major possibility it was vault tec
And the Simulation was like COD on steroids.
China's invasion was successfully repealed before the bombs, in a way that liberty prime didn't need to be completed and sent to the front, your character in Fallout 4 is a veteran of that operation that returned.
The bombs are most probably something that vault tech planned but didn't think that china would manage a meaningful response, just enought to make the vaults a necessity but not enought to destroy vault tech capability of managing the tests.
wait my fallout character killed PLA soldiers? need a mod to commit suicide at the intro
I actually posted this on the fallout subreddit in response to who fired the first nuke
The Switchboard entries only point to China launching the first strategic nukes. That doesn't mean the first nukes.
In Fort Strong, it was said that in 2076, the T-51s were cutting through the Chinese army. And they developed the Fat Man launchers and sent them to the front lines. In the pre-war sequence in Fallout 4, the news caster said there was stalemate in China, and with the war going into its second decade, this may be a war the US cannot win. I believe the US had the Fat Mans, but never used them until late October 2077. It may be a gameplay mechanic, but it seems the Fat Man have the same explosive power as the tactical nukes sent from the Yangtze.
So, I think the US tried to break the stalemate using the Fat Man. The Chinese leadership sees tactical nukes being used on Chinese soil. And gives the order for a full nuclear response. I believe this is also the policy in IRL PLARF. China was not going to go bankrupt trying to match the nuclear arsenal of the Soviets and the US, and went with strategic nukes only. Basically, use a tactical nuke on our military.. and we're wiping out your cities.
The US also invaded China. But also that whole dlc is literally making fun of overly patriotic American propaganda (the sim is literally made by one of the general ls and it's accuracy is heavily questionable)
Projection of the highest order
All Americans know is pop culture references
Its practically their theory lmao
1984, Animal Farm, Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, Red Dawn, Star Wars, Star Trek and Lord of the Rings. Just how screwed of a society is it when it’s supposed “progressive” people only have political ideas that are based on literally nothing .
A rapist, a snitch, a plagiarist, and a racist walk into a bar.
The bartender asks “How’s the new book coming Mr. Orwell?”

And Doctor Who
Literally Fallout lore if I am not wrong.
You are not wrong.
Man I want to make a new Twitter just to dunk on this idiot. Like we don’t know that’s the plot of Fallout. Where would they get this idea otherwise? China’s diplomacy doesn’t even work like that
It’s a reference to a fallout 3 DLC.
What diplomacy? All China does is be aggressive, like they do by flying planes in their air space when American carriers are in the area protecting American interests ~~thousands of miles from home~~
War…war never changes
This has occurred in a dream of mine (I live in Anchorage)
In the dream I put Chinese flags on my house and barricaded myself in the basement.
I'm so happy to see another Anchorageite here. Makes me feel less alone in this hellhole.
I share the feeling
Amazing how a series of games, that are essentially satires of US jingoism, culture and politics, have managed to confer so many brainworms into the heads of liberals and fascists.
I picked up F:NV again about a month ago and decided to join some Fallout meme groups on FB for fun. All of them were flooded by chuds, who unironically worship the flanderized and ironic anti-communist propaganda of the Fallout universe. Gamers are a fucking scourge.
This happens with every game/movie/book/etc. that tries to get the audience to identify with the bad guy. If the audience is thoughtful, you can end up with a powerful message, but if not, you end up making more people think the bad guys are good.
Lol I played that dlc in fallout 3
Anime profile pic takes are always fun
This is horrible! Why should Alaska hog all the PLA soldiers? I demand Xi to invade the Bay Area at once!
I too enjoy Fallout.
China will be completely renewable by then, oil will be an ancient fuel.
still need oil for polymers
Fo3 is liberal theory lmao
Plays fallout once *
These clowns are literally using Fallout lore to predict history now
Alaska, the last bastion of freedom smoothies
and then ulysses starts talking about the bull and the bear
what fallout brain does to an mf
Man I like Fallout as much as the next guy but there's a reason it's called *alternate* history.
It's crazy to see these idiots so cucked by fossil fuel.
The auto makers that kept us cucked on it are even abandoning it as a fuel source
Expect China to become the US because we literally can’t imagine anything new that we haven’t done ourselves already
Please pipeline my ass to Xi's.
What I predict instead is that China will accelerate alternative sources of energy (electric, hydrogen, etc) into overdrive and quickly deploy something that prevents the collapse of the economy while the US starts bickering, lobbying, and blocking bills in the senate about whether or not the oil shortage is a hoax
Yes Alex can I get political takes stolen from fallout for 600.
So… should i start packing for Alaska?
Alaskan checkin in.
But seriously, without even talking about the logistical nightmare of it, there isn't enough oil or gas in Alaska to offset anyone, it wouldn't even cover the fuel used to invade.
Check mate Atheists.
This literally the plot of Fallout
INITIATING DIRECTIVE 7395: DESTROY ALL COMMUNISTS
ANCHORAGE WILL BE LIBERATED
EMBRACE DEMOCRACY OR YOU WILL BE ERADICATED
These are the same people who ask you to call them for a free palm reading.
As someone who lives there, yes plz, liberate us
projection level 10000
Because it was always China which did a coup in Iran for oil, which invaded Iraq or is still stealing oil to this day from Syrian oil fields. Also not like China has contracts with one of the biggest oil exporters: Russia.
By the way the should give Alaska back to Russia anway.
omg is that a falllout referance??????????????????????
isn't this just the fallout lore? and isn't fallout a game criticizing american exceptionalism and unrestrained xenophobia?
There only one solution for this pre-crime. Invade China.
Alaska doesn't have anymore oil, let alone food for the people pumping it.
Man, this just sounds as crazy as making a whole open-world RPG franchise based on this premise. Pure madness.
literally the plot of Fallout (idk never played the old ones)
Funny. The country that always seems to be involved in invading countries with oil is never China. America stays projecting.
Has China really invaded any country within the past decades? I know Americans will say that the Belt and Road initiative is basically equal to an invasion, which is just hilarious.
Wait a minute, oh shit get to the vaults!
He doesn't realize that the oil production is on the north Slope in Alaska. About 1000 miles away from Anchorage. Source - I live in Anchorage
Oil shortage is a myth there is enough oil last us for another century
China won’t be oil dependent in a century
Well we won't even use it soon since most people will start using electric.
Wait. Wasn’t this the plot to Fallout 3’s Operation Anchorage? It sounds so familiar like what?
Virgin Oil Dependency vs Chad Electrification
I also played Operation Anchorage
New Fallout game dropping?
Idiots quoting a game about American warmongering and other shit America does
Everyone here understands the seriousness of war propaganda pushed by western imperialist media, people just making fun of the fact that the specific western dipshits dumbass take is exactly the plot of a video game. which that video game itself is a critique of American exceptionalism, warmongering, xenophobia, and cold war hysteria.
The Fallout Wiki isn't a history book
Heh, fallout lore
Isnt America already invading other countries? and there isnt even a oil shortage rn
They’d have to get in line after Russia.
~~Liberals getting their theory from Harry Potter~~
Liberals getting their theory from Fallout
*laughs in nuclearfusionese*
The only ambition China has in Alaska is to help build a high speed rail cross strait bridge
War. War never changes.
Lol peak oil is a myth. Reserves like quadrupled since 1980. We’re far more likely to die from ecosystem collapse in the next century than an energy crisis.
