12-21-2012, if I am not mistaken, is not the end but the beginning of a new era according to the Mayan calendar. The last period of the old cycle was seen as a time of turmoil and trouble, due to the evils of mathematical incompatibility between the various cycles.
So yeah, it might all be over by 12-21-2012... would be nice if it were. 12 months and 29 days...
There will be no economic collapse of America, in the event of world war three! War is profitable, the economic collapse of America will not be seen in our life times, some wish it was, some secretly think it will happen but fear it. I however understand a few things.
1st. The foundations of America are far reaching, the individual freedoms, granted to the people out weigh our governments opportunity towards dictatorship. As long as there are differencing of opinions within the U.S.A (which America has openly welcomed since the beginning, immigration be a good example).
2nd. The U.S.A no longer operates on an industrialized level, we are specialist. Whether or not you think we are educated our college expectations and reputations far exceed that of any country. Since we are specialized we fix specialized problems, (such as logistics, computer engineering, investments, business management, the list could go on and on.) So because of this our technology's and technology specialist are being absorbed into the world, this is extremely political, and a political win for the U.S.A if you ask me.
3rd. Not everything is right on the home front no doubt, however if some country thinks it can attack us or have a military advantage, our government and the people have the power to give an unequivocal red, white, and blue middle finger to those who oppose us. Granted I have not covered all avenues of approach but, America falling cannot happen unless God himself dictates so. Period

I have to say, if your conclusion is that we may soon experience the nuclear annialation of Iran and that is why the US is pulling its troops out of Iraq, then I am doubtful.
Even using high yield strategic nuclear weapons in this theater would not put US troops in Iraq at material risk as these troops would be positioned hundreds of miles upwind from Iranian targets.
And that being said isn't it much more probable that any nuclear weapons use would be lower yield tactical weapons, having no impact on US troops in Iraq, and in such a battlefield scenario, wouldn't having 50,000 US troops in theater prove invaluable.
And as far as Iranian nukes go, it seems like their program is no where near capable of delivering nukes against Israel, and they would be nuts to do so and most likely incapable of deploying nuclear weapons against US troops in Iraq.
Although I subscribe to much of what has been promoted here, something just isn't adding up.
The Kh-101 is described as having an "aerial torpedo" configuration, but with swept wings and use of radar absorbing materials, conformal antennas, and other stealth technologies. The design features an INS guidance and satellite navigation receiver for midcourse guidance, with terminal attack using an image matching system. This high precision allows a conventional warhead, though the Kh-102 version has a nuclear warhead.

European armies are basically ineffective because of their weak left-wing leadership (gone are the Alexanders, Winston Churchills, Napolean Bonaparts, Adolf Hitlers and Julius Ceasers) and will be no match for pitched battle against the war hungry soldiers of Persia. I'm sure the eastern Islamic nations can be influenced to combat Europeans.
Russia's military still holds the values it did in the Great Patriotic War and it also still has it's powerful leaders who conjure up visions of Ivan the Terrible, Joseph Stalin and Vladimir Lenin. And Vladimer Putin takes no sh*t. Unlike Sarkozy, Cameron, Merkel etc.
Austrailia's military is ineffective because of it's size. It's small and cannot field the numbers it once could in the World Wars.
Chinese leaders are strong willed and they know the strength of their massive armies, and I bet are itching to test them. They're sick of being kept down by world powers for the last five hundred years. The Great Red Dragon is about to rise.
It's not like the movies. It's not a game. It's not just some thing to discuss the semantics of on an internet chat site.
It's real. It's not fun. It's not glorious. It's not Rambo or Jimmi Hendrix music.
It's loud, it's scary, it hurts and it takes people you love and it kills them.

antisemitism? really? from a Jew? (yes i am racially "Jewish" The Rothschilds named themselves..didnt know they where Jewish as i did no research into their religion...please tell me where in my post did i mention anything even remotely antisemitic...
also if i am wrong please present evidence that proves it unless of course your point here is to derail the thread into a argument over Antisemitism
edit on 25-10-2011 by CaDreamer because: (no reason given)
No. As i stated in my last post, i may have overreacted when i heard the name Rothchild being blamed for our woes. I have seen thread after thread derailed by the simple mention of their name, and it quickly becomes a "zionist" bashing thread.
