    So, WW2 didn't stimulate the economy and massive government spending doesn't stimulate the economy, either?

    No one "wants" a war. That being said, lots of us have learned from WWII what appeasement did. We would up with a bigger war than would have been necessary, if we hadn't gone so long with appeasement. WWWI would have not been the conflagration it turned into if no one listened to the likes of Neville (peace in our time) Chamberlain.

    Those who don't learn from their history are bound to make the same mistakes again. Sound familiar?

    Should we go to war just because the economy is bad?

    On a more rational front, found this article from the NY Examiner I thought might interest some folks...puts this Iranian nuclear scare abit more into perspective.

    Certainly looks like the saber rattling has been taken up a notch.
