    Are there any new wars we should be willing to fight?

    Are there any new wars we should be willing to fight?

    By "new", I mean potential conflicts that we are not currently engaged, but could be if the circumstances fall just right.

    1) Iran?
    2) Syria?
    3) North Korea?
    4) Something else that is escaping my mind at the moment?

    The only one that I could say 'yes' to is North Korea... and then ONLY if they do something incredibly stupid such as a direct attack/invasion of South Korea. I wouldn't want to, but I think we'd have no choice.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    The North Pole. The damn elves are melting the ice caps trying to drown us. Water is a weapon of mass destruction and we need to go after them and anybody who has it to use against us.

    I see your point about N Korea but IMO we need to fight no more wars.

    We've worn out our military,they need to be brought home for

    National defense at home !

    I am 100% in agreement with this, but can envision a possible scenario with NK that we might not be able to avoid.

    Not sure, but we need to be more active in solving the Pakistan, and India boarder dispute before they obliterate each other, and possibly send us into nuclear winter.

    Yeah that is something we need to stay the hell away from. The nuclear winter things is unrealistic. Pakistan keeps its nukes disassembled and stored in pieces in multiple locations to keep the crooks from getting their hands on them.

    We need to be ready and willing to fight North Korea and Iran if worse come to worse, but we certanly shouldn't be looking to deliberately to start a conflict if we can avoid it.

    Our major concern should be simply staying ahead of China and Russia in terms of technology, tactics, and security. If an existential military threat is going to come from an sector, it is going to be there.

    Last I heard, they were storing their warheads in unmarked delivery vans.

    India has said that if they have another attack like Mumbai that they will attack Pakistan, which could cause Pakistan to use their nukes on India, which would then result in India retaliating with nukes. Not a good thing, considering that it is estimated that if 100 nukes are set off at the same time it is likely to do very serious damage to our o-zone.
