    Not really sure how to respond here...
    firstly, I think if our bases were attacked and wiped out, we would counterattack and possibly start up the draft before they got to the invading bit.

    Unless you're talking all-out war, and in that case I would expect a nuclear attack, in which case your second bit is mostly moot - we wouldn't have much in the way of people to draft, unless the antimissile systems I've read about are far better in their current states (read: still classified) than I think.

    Then there's the issue of a government which got us into that level of **** through incompetence probably facing internal revolution, albeit possibly non-violent (as in, we impeach the worthless ****s and get some better talent involved).


    So many possible scenarios, interdependent on various factors that you didn't cover.

    In short, I got no idea.
    Education.

    This. Nukes pretty much negated the practicality of world wars overnight.

    The only way I can see that changing is if some form of perfect or near-perfect anti-missile system is developed and implemented - thereby eliminating missile-delivered nuclear weapons as a reasonable attack method.

    Absurd scenario. It could never go so far. Only psychotic terrorist buffoons yearn for the end of all things, and they're hardly in a position to bring it about.

    Why would America start it?

    Now, if America were invaded, and was not the aggressor, I'm sure our military would be there helping you guys out -- Western brethren and all. So I'd probably join up.

    But I don't really understand the premise of the question.

    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.
    Here is a thoroughly American song with which you may not be familiar that may explain the sentiments expressed by others on this thread:

    God Bless US president Andrew Jackson, but this was during the time America was still free and if you understand what Andrew Jackson was warning Americans against, then you know America no longer exist:
