    Will we ever fight a "traditional" war again?

    Will we ever fight a "traditional" war again?

    "Traditional", for the purposes of this question, meaning a war with defined fronts, between distinct countries/governments, and so on. WW1, WW2, and the Korean War, would be examples of "traditional" wars.

    No. Everyone depends on everyone else to live.

    I'm saying no, but I also wonder if this method of war is actually preferable anyway.

    Re: Will we ever fight a "traditional" war again?

    That's true, ever is a long time. With that in mind, will the United States be around forever?

    In this instance, I think it's kind of like one of those things that'd require so much to change at this point that we'd only be fighting in a 'traditional' war if the world/ nation wasn't what it is anymore.

    So at that point, is it even "we" or is it something else entirely fighting the war?

    So i think yes.As it currently stands our "policing the world" is keeping a lot of countries out of civil and international war. Now if we have to shift our attention to say the chinese and their imperialistic views over their sea over there (i cant remember for the life of me which one ), many of those countries will go to war. How long do you think Israel will last if gaza and iraq don't have the threat of us coming in to back up israel. Now yes you might say that russia could come in and help out and maybe fix the situation but like i have said in other threads, we are shoving a bandaid on a cut that is already festering. The longer we hold it back the longer those hates build and fester and when we finally cant hold it back any more you have ww3 and ww4 within 20 years of each other, and now millions die.

    Some times you have to let rome burn when letting go causes less damage then holding it back.
    War is not a tool to satisfy your emotional outbursts.

    I hope not.

    I hope America and other great powers (China, UK, Russia, Germany, etc) are never thrown into a conflict that induces a state of total war again. Such a conflict would likely be another world war and I'd rather not think of such a nightmare. Though, the keyword is hope.

    No. There is too much at stake since our economies are all interconnected.

    Will we the United States? Maybe. I think the only plausible scenarios are a defense of the Korean peninsula or a flashpoint conflict with China. Both of which are very much plausible but not exactly predictable.

    That is what they thought before the Great War. It was one of the most common themes in literature at the time. Just saying.
