Remember the Cuban missile crisis?
A russian official told us a few years afterward that if we had invaded cuba they would have used short range low yield nuclear weapons...
Imagine what they would do if it was army vs army

That is my fear also. Constitution killing laws would run rampant should even a small nuclear explosion go off. It would also give excuses to our decision makers to justify any action they wanted to take in any part of the world. They could say everything thats being done is in the best interest of national defense. Some people believe TPTB create problems in order for the public to turn to them for a solution...to coerce support for an agenda. I fear that someone, somewhere is going to start it all off with a bit of trickery, or misdirection. That is most worrisome, because then everyone is confused, and people will begin to see enemies everywhere...even where there is none to be found.
I was gonna ask for clarification of your OP but it's right here. It's not Radical Islam you need to worry about. It's the people funding them, people in business and government, and some of them are in seats of power all over the USA. It's our own government that is the terrorists, and don't you doubt it.

You're right about those games. I do not allow my sons (12 and 13) to bring any of those games, specifically any rated "M", into our house.
They think I'm crazy-nuts-strict, because "all" of their friends have them.
We all know how when we told our parents that "all" of our friends had something, it was rarely true. Unfortunately, in this case, I think they are right. I teach elementary school, and I have kids as young as 2nd and 3rd grade who talk about playing those rated M games. It seems that almost everyone DOES have those games.
What kind of madness would allow you to let your young kids (and I think of 12 and 13 as STILL TOO YOUNG) to play those games?
I think the kids are being desensitized to the violence. It's definitely troubling.
I once read an article that included quotes and reports of world leaders after WW1
The wars since the end of the Cold War have been about prepositioning troops and resources in preparation for the next Big One.
You dont have to be Einstein to see that the Missile Shield is going to change the balance of power in the world....MAD will not be tje outcome if the West has its way.
As soon as you have the ability for a first strike and can back that up with a defensive shield that works, you then have the ability for a successful second strike to ensure your enemy stays down.
We will not know when this all starts.........you'll find out on the breaking News Reports on tv or the streaks flying through the sky's depending on where you live.
