Hallo Lochen all very red this side of the country. But I don't think a US war is coming, they cannot afford it. Their overseas credit is now getting so huge that the oil barons and Chinese banks will soon dictate to them with their cheque books.
By War I take it you mean men in uniforms shooting at each other? I modern times War takes on more forms than just conventional methods. Take the Cold War for instance - no shots fired, but Trillions upon Trillions of Dollars poured into an arms race like the world has never seen before. Since 9/11 the US has had it's War on Terrorism and now that has worn thin so yes I am pretty sure the US will have some new Imperialistic Conquest by 2012 or thereabouts. However at this moment in time I prefer to refer to Thomas Jefferson's quote that "Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies" and think that today's War Monger is dressed in a suit.
