    Re: Would you go to war to defend the USA?

    I wouldn't.

    I have better things to do. There are plenty of patriots who are willing to die for something they believe in. I'd rather live for it.

    I'm afraid of people shooting at me. What can I say, they didn't teach me how to dodge bullets in school.

    Fact: To a large degree, the CIA and the mainstream media are one and the same. The U.S. governmentís state media is not like the Chinese, Russian, Cuban, or Iranian state media, but it is still a state media. The only difference is there is the illusion in America that there is a separation between the private sphere of news coverage and the official sphere of power. But in reality, there is no separation. Officials in the highest positions of power in Washington manage the news in America, direct the national conversation, cover up uncomfortable truths, and set the official standards for public debate. They are totalitarian thugs who masquerade as defenders of freedom and providers of security."

    Frankly, the greatest danger for the USA is a civil war and breaking apart, imho.

    The divide between the rich and the poor would have get worse, I think the next couple of elections will prevent that from happening.

    The trouble is, of what is the OP asking about ?
    Foreign adventures ?
    Or a "Red October" ?
    It had be best believed that I'd arm myself and kill if some skinhead or nazi showed up at my door.
    The 'foreign adventures" should never have been, our "leaders" are not doing their homework.

    I think we need to study history a lot more than we do.
    Particularly Chinese - how did they become "unified" and what keeps them together ?

    Re: Would you go to war to defend the USA?

    I would. However, I would ask in return that we not have a commander in chief, like GWB, that sends us into a war based on lies,deceit and manipulation. If Americans are going to be asked to give their lives, it should never be to satisfy a "war President's" ego and/or neocon agenda.

    One example: the United States response to 9-11-2001 by invading Afghanistan to destroy al-Qaeda and their safe haven was clearly justified. The United States was attacked and fighting back/going to war is in defense of the USA. Based on that suicidal attack on 9-11-2001, we know there are organizations out there that will do anything to damage us and, if they acquire the means, destroy us. They don’t care about their own lives or the lives of innocent people when they viciously attack, so we must fight back against this when we can.
