Hasn't there been a war prior to many economic collapses? The panic of 1857 was shortly followed by the US Civil War, The panic of 1873 was followed by the Franco-Prussian War I believe, The great depression obviously followed up by WW2. An economic collapse today wouldn't surprise me in the least if it was followed by a large war.
