    Is this even possible? What with China and Russia having veto power and all.

    That's the plan, yes.

    When the fit hits the shan I suggest you pony your narrow ass down to the recruiter and re-enlist so you can be sure and get some. It'll be fun. I want you to be one of the first to enjoy it.
    wow, is this how you debate?

    Sorry, I'm now over the age limit and already served. Unlike you I actually picked up a gun and trained in defense of my country.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The UN itself does not have soldiers - the member nations are a different story.

    My point is the US needs to quit acting like it rules the world. It doesn't and it cannot afford to go into a war with the likely potential to become WW# unilaterally. Excellent description by risky Thicket in #18.

    Not only possibly, but probably.
    They'll most likely attack by:
    1) Air strikes, probably by B-2s, possibly by modified versions of the B-52
    2) Sabotage. I wouldn't be surprised if the CIA or some other intelligence agency had a prepared plan to strike those nuclear installations. It could range from cyber attacks to strikes by prepared units.
    3) Long-range surface-to-surface missiles, possibly fired from land/naval forces in the area.

    Then I suggest you make sure and send your children into the fray, if you feel the need to go to war is so compelling. You advocate war, put skin in the game. If you can't go then you should be more than willing to send those you love.
