You may want to do a bit of research on Economic Mobilization and War Economy.
We would be one of the Richest nations once again if a Major war breaks out.
Most civilians dont know this , but we have nearly 60 facilities for war production ready to be activated for manufacturing war materials.
America isn't dumb. We have already prepared for war before war happens. Not because we want it to happen , but because it would be negligent not to prepare for a total war scenario.
I was also told they could house nearly 70 million US citizens in fortified Nuclear/Bomb/Missile shelters , and have a seperated network to house 4 million US military personnel.
If you take Military Operational Studies / Diplomacy , you will learn LOTS of interesting information that you actually cant get off the internet. A lot of it is Military manuals / Informational book for military personnel at the War College.

Don't get me wrong, I am right there with you, Just stating how warfare would be if it goes down in my best opinion. I am not a mongering war lover. I wish the whole lot would just knock it off so the rest of us can live in peace.
And don't forget war will solve americas job crisis. No more social grants for unemployed, people would be forced into productivity and not sit at home feeling sorry for themselves. War would lead to a new generation of hard work and appreciation not only economically but socially.

Amidst calls for all US citizens to leave Syria, the USS George H.W. Bush has arrived off the coast of Syria in clear defiance of Russian warships sent to help deter NATO from any action in Syria.
A perfect storm is brewing in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, with Russian President Medvedev threatening US installations in Poland, the delivery to the US Air Force of new 30,000 lb super bunker busters, Israel preparing for strikes on Iran, and Turkey providing sanctuary for rebel Syrian forces.
The stage is being set for a major conflict in the region, one that would provide a massive stimulus to the US/EU economies, but will NATO call Russia's bluff or will Russia back Syria and Iran militarily, leading to a wider war that could spiral out of control?
