... when George Orwell wrote 1984.
In it, the continent of Oceania (America and the western Europe) switch constantly between fighting Eurasia (Eastern Europe, the middle east North Africa and Russia) and Eastasia (primarily China, and southeast Asia).
When Oceania was fighting one there was never any mention in the restricted papers about fighting the other. Seems to me it was only a few months ago that China was at odds at the US, and now it's Afghanistan... hmmm...
