HMS_Blinkin: Because subby has been watching too much History channel and wants to re-live WWII for some deluded reason? Today's circumstances are only superficially similar to those that led to WWII, and anyone who bothers to look past the "ZOMG borders are being violated" narrative will quickly realize that.I'm not saying that the international situation isn't a bit troubling, but it's also not a replay of 1939.
cman: This text is now purple: cman: Stratohead: there is no question of "IF" we will go to war with China... the only question is "When".That would be insanely idioticIf would result in a catastrophic death for our economyI believe that people like making money and will go to any lengths to protect thatThat was the logic in 1914.Have a citation to back that up?
TheShavingofOccam123: It sounds like too much wealth has been created and distributed into too many hands.IT'S TIME FOR A LITTLE CONCENTRATION OF WEALTH THROUGH THE USE OF WAR!!1!/the real nice thing is if you are in the right class, you can make enormous profits by selling military equipment while transferring wealth from casualties. AT THE SAME TIME!!1! It's a win-win.
