while I do mirror your sentiment, in everything you said, with all that has been seen in such a short time, would a ww3 scenario be too far fetched?? I mean. As nuts as it sounds, the best time to strike would be when the target is reeling, not when he's on stable footing. But my scenario is just that, and written on a phone, I couldn't go too detailed. Lol! Id rather use my weapons for recreational shooting than their true purpose.

I wouldn't put anything past the US government anymore, but honestly I can't see us getting involved. We're stretched thin in Afghanistan and Iraq, we have to worry about Israel attacking Iran, we're involved in Pakistan, and we're BROKE! Where will the money and resources come from? I just wish we'd bring all our troops back home and stop worrying about Israel and everybody else's concerns and start worrying about us for a change. Half the country is worried about the economy completely collapsing, and the other half is worried about WW3. Jeeze...

Well, since we all have speculations on this and many events playing out, I figure with our own government doing so many things deemed reckless, stupid and down right "WTF man?! Really??", I figure id add my own speel:
For decades, those in power in the US have been increasing the #'s of staffed bases worldwide, while reducing base #'s @ home. Combined with corporate relocations of facilities to other lands, to increase profits, while ensuring their ability to function should a calamity hit the mainland US. Plummeting educational standards And finally years of pumping the population with fat producing foods and other pleasures to keep them pacified, lumbering and sedentary and mentally lacking in global competition.
With a military overstretched, workforce displaced and mostly OBESE & poorly educated, numbed populace. huge debt, weakened dollar plus the historical irony that, mainland US, during ww1 and ww2, had not had wars ugly head reared here(aside from pearl harbor), while most parts of the world were touched in some way by the machines of war. placing the US armed services as the "worlds police force", the citizens of the US mainland now are ripe for the picking.
Throw in a false flag event to spurn war with an elusive enemy over 2 countries, lasting nearly 10yrs and billions upon billions of dollars, a third war will lock the protective forces too far from home and leaves the backdoor wide open for anyone who chooses such a bold move, to strike this country.
Mobilizing the last line of defense(national guard troops) for tours away from the land they are tasked to defend, all that will be left are citizens, law enforcement and veterans, who may valiantly fight, if they would believe at all, that my scenario just became their new reality, but will otherwise suffer heavy losses against a trained military agression.
Its late and I'm leaving work, figured id make something up.......

I fear we're witnessing the beginning stages of WW-III to be honest. The last time we got involved in the Korea war, we ended up toe-to-toe with the Chinese. That was during a time when China was considered by many to be an inferior country militarily. This time around, they may have the home field advantage against us. Sheer numbers alone over-powered us last time. If it happens again, this time, they hold the good hand.
We owe China so much money, their military seriously dwarfs ours, and now they're damn near just as technologically advanced. Yeah, this will spiral out of control VERY quickly. This worries me.
That being said, South Korea has the right to defend itself. And they're allies to us. I really don't like where this is headed.
