    Living in the woods in America, I am not sure I have the freedom to say what I would do, especially after my dogs were shot a month ago, and I am not sure if I would refuse a local militia to fight against invaders either, because I would like to know who is taking over, and there would probably be no internet to research.
    What a stupid ****ing question...

    No way in hell would I ever be willing to fight and die to keep the Democrats and the Republicans in power. Corporations are people, let THEM be conscripted and killed since they'd be the ones that bribed the government into started WW3 in the first place.

    I am afraid the question reminds me of the thinking of those first thrilled by the new ideas they encounter in political science. The only thing that it shows is the bias and reminds me of Russia Today or German public media.

    What is disturbing is that the mind bend behind such a question i.e. its formulation is that it tends to lead in an unproduktive direction to ask the wrong questions. In this case, you see, the problem is much less tractable than the question seems to assume, but the danger is very real and as a major war is very probable, indeed . So it is very important to find appropriate solutions. But you only get them, when you bark up the right trees.

    He did not say the invading army was from EUROPE!!?

    What is the meaning of assuming that we would go after other Europeans across the ocean when you have many other potentialities in the world?!! What happened to China, Russia, India, Arabs future united front, African future united front, and many other similar potentialities?!

    So eager to pick Europe from all those other options huh?!

    The Japanese considered invading us back in WWII until they did the gun math.

    I would imagine foreign countries would be just as, if not more, cautious today.

    The scenario would likely go nuclear long before any thoughts of an invasion.

    But how can one "justly" start a world war, any war. Starting a war is an act of aggression.
