I mean really, what on God's green Earth is the point of this pointless thread? Who would win??? NEITHER, war is a lose/lose proposition when it is
between allies. The Revolutionary war was as close as the US and UK will ever get to fighting and that war was based on the principles of
governorship. The Colonials left the Kingdom to avoid the King's rule. The King attempted to govern and tax the Colonies from afar and the
Colonials wouldn't stand for it. That was a war of principle.
Today there are no key differences of principle, nor is there any one government attempting to exert control over the other. In short, there isn't
anything that would foment a war between these two great allies. I, for one, being an American who holds the UK in the highest regard as an ally,
would not fight. I suspect that there would be millions of others like myself, who based on principle alone, simply would not engage.
Now, if for some stupid and unforseen reason we were to enage in a war. We would both lose. Both country's possess incredible military might with
incredible destructive force. We would leave BOTH nations decimated. Infrastructure lost. Great minds wasted. Economies in tatters. GDP
non-existent and of little value in the global market place. To what end? Why? Millions of people suffering and dying as a result - no I never see
Cheers to a great friend and ally, UK!!!
