  1. Well Uncle Sam, looks like you will get your war with those nasty and evil commies eh? Can’t beat a distraction from all of the feds shenanigans so lets go and blow up some other folks.

    Trouble is Uncle Sam, these buggers will fight back. They are not a bunch of peasants with AK’s.

    • A quick study of conflict since 1991 shows that Nato, with the exception of Serbia, has not faced a real threat. Now even though little Serbia lost, but not after downing a shiny stealth fighter with outdated Russian Sams.

      Will western populations fall for a MAJOR war? I do not think so. Europe will stay out of this. Uncle Sam will try and drag Japan, India and Australia into it. The Pacrim is going to be a graveyard for thousands if the lunatics are allowed to have their way.

      • I wish i had your faith in the UN staying out of it, think the opposite. when push comes to shove and sides are taken it will be the usual U.S U.N coalition.

      • Maybe but Europe is disarming at a rate of knots unseen since The Wall collapsed. China and Russia can pull many strings with India and Pakistan. The Indian Ocean could be a no go area for western navies very quickly.

        The flashpoint will be The Spratlies. As for The UN, frankly when it gets to that level of conflict it is a useless organ akin to the old League of Nations. After all what is the UN? Just a fledgling world government dependant on The US military. Then theirs the question of how will they react, a real can of worms this.

    • Talking about WW III and you are concerned about minor spelling??
      Sorry. I rarely involve in nit-picking but I’m in a bad mood today, had to mow the lawns on a Sunday. 🙂
