Ahh. My bad. I took your comment to be another 'America sucks..you'll all die anyway' type of comment. So much of that lately... Anyway,. my
sincere oops for mistaking your position.
I still disagree a bit in one way though. You take the tack that War would bring civil unrest and it would be a bad thing. Well, in MY mind, it's a
VERY bad thing but no one asks me anything. To a national leader, there are traditionally a couple sure fire ways to QUELL, not encourage civil unrest
and it's not good for us.
#1 on the list is foreign war. Not War Games like Iraq and Afghanistan where a decade of war can rage and people would not even know something was
happening from America's perspective, if not told about it. I mean a war like World War II where we all feel a REAL threat and a tangible one.
If THAT can come from all this tension? All the nations having domestic problems have a major UPSIDE to any major wars breaking out. I hate being in a
position where our leaders can say war is good and has real benefits, but I'm afraid they may look at it just like that.
