It is disconcerting that we are finger wagging blame so flagrantly without expecting some kind of retaliation. I am pretty sure in the recent behind close doors economic discussion between our government and their government that all this virus stuff was been hashed out and a predetermined outcome has already been agreed upon by both parties. I don't think they want to radiate america because it would be too hard to recover the many resources and why when they can just use a virus that they have a cure for. Oh, well, all of it seems scripted if i am honest. I mean if our reality shows are scripted why cant our politics be scripted, oh my its like watching wrestling and boy is there going to be a PPV for the ages to watch good thing we will all be home to watch it.

I fear the only way to economic recovery is through war. In history, look to the past and how economic downturns were reconciled in this manner. What does a divided nation need for unity a common enemy. Honestly, the negative connotations the past 4 yrs or so make me thing rolling China appears to be our way to prosperity.

Well, about thirty-first, to be honest.

Considering everybody else's ills across the world, it's such an unlikely B-movie scenario that even Michael Bay would reject it as OTT.

No, they really can't. It doesn't matter how many people are sick. Militaries and wars are run on logistics. They don't have the tanker or carrier capabilities to get fighters and bombers to the US mainland in large enough numbers, and then support them. They don't have enough airlift to get large numbers of troops, equipment, and supplies to the US mainland quickly. We have one of the larger airlift and sealift capabilities, and it took months to move enough equipment to take on Iraq and Afghanistan. And that was with safe areas to stage from.

None of those countries would have large safe areas they could unload equipment into and get it ready to use. You can't just roll it onto ships and then off at the other end and straight into battle. Even if they could stage somewhere, there are 32,000 people sick. And no large units that wouldn't be available if something came at us. You think just because they're sick units wouldn't still jump into a fight defending the US mainland?


You're talking conventional warfare.
No arguments there - no country or coalition is ever going to triumph in an attack against the US.
However, cyber warfare and biological warfare are different.

Neither of which is going to accomplish what the OP claimed. The only way to completely cripple or destroy the US is nuclear.

Or an economical implosion which is basically happening right now. But not so because of the 'enemy'.
But you right with a real war, nobody would be crazy enough to try. US defense, isn't about defending at all, just a show of might and putting her will on the world and making sure her interests which are mostly economically being fulfilled.

And now with the tiniest possible virus it looks like her power gets crumbled leaving the economy in shatters. Or it already was but this set it in motion basically.
This debt is so huge, when it happened with the U.S.S.R. it was a joke compared when it happens with the US. No way from recovering from that, but also scary on the same time. What will the U.S. do after? Nothing or everything.

Except it's happening to many countries, not just the US. More importantly, our military power is still there and still ready to roll. The world is going to be a much different place when this is over. It's going to take everyone a long time to recover. Yeah, we'll probably see some diminishment of our power, but is that really a bad thing?

Think not? The U.S. could be totally destroyed at any moment. The virus is due to hit our military and the Pentagon much more when the outbreak spikes.

China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea all have an opportunity when the U.S. is weakened by the virus. The virus is the first wave of the attack. It had to have global casualties in order for the second wave to work just against the U.S.

You heard it here first.




LEONS doing it, chill.

Yes it's happening with many country's. But not as bad even close by the looks of it. They are right now pumping trillions in the economy and already they are spending 1 trillion more then have for the last 10+ years each year. This year 1.3 trillion. And now the US could loose at much as 50% of her GDP in the second quarter.. when business don't pay their loans/debt, even many many more trillions. Sure most on the short term will be saved by the government, but at some point it's crazy territory.. you just can't save everything with trillions and trillions out of the printing press.

When soldiers/those serving don't get paid, they don't do anything, only trying to survive for them self. Their own country isn't that important really. Their own survival much more.

After 9-11 the crazy spending started which set in motion in my opinion her downfall. With Bush the spending went out of control, for wars which didn't do much at all and which only grew larger every year after.

Just sad when power and greed went over the top and the US was an example for the rest of the world which could be used for good and bad. By the looks of it more bad then good really.

But sure every country gets hurt big time, maybe time for some other ways making this world a better place for everyone but before that happens lots of suffering.

If you look at other countries comparatively, they're getting hit as hard, just not on the same scale as we are. I hate to keep using this example, but do you really think Italy is going to come through this better than us?

Just a few years ago there was a delay in paying the troops. People said the military was going to fall apart, and there would be chaos, and it would be every man for themselves. Then it hit, and no one even noticed. The troops went to work, kept doing their jobs, and were eventually paid as normal again, with their back pay. The military takes care of their own.

We'll bounce back from this too. It might take awhile, but we'll recover.

The US isn't making much/selling much. More about consumption, making sure international trade being done in dollars, like oil and so on but on the same time, saying come here; do business with us or else!!. Sure selling weapons is still a big business in the US.
Most trade in the EU is done in the EU itself. Even Germany alone comes close with exports in money with the US while Germany is way way smaller in people.
In Europe people get paid while being sick, in the US, you can get rich faster when doing good but on the same time many are way faster in a position where they can't pay their bills.
China the biggest producer and hard working which the US was once was became the opposite basically. And people don't need allot of money to survive. In the US everything is so expensive and just bad luck with an hospital visit and nothing is certain. Sure a small amount never did better, but most need government assistance for keeping the economy healthy which grew out of proportions now.
Workers in the US get paid well but they don't work as hard like in China. And high healthcare insurance for workers and lawsuits for businesses are on the corner.
Look how many are overweight, 100 million million Americans have diabetes or prediabetes. Cardiovascular diseases affect nearly half of American adults, statistics show and I can go on. All that because of overweight, just look the numbers on that yourself.

Sure we get hit big time worldwide but the US way way more.

You can delay payment but for how long? not that long...
