    War comes in many forms.

    There are already wars going on.

    Good versus evil. In various ways.

    Re: Is a civil war in the U.S. imminent?

    I think a civil war is inevitable. We haven't been this divided since the run up to the original Civil War, and even then we didn't have differences in race and ethnicity, ppl can't all agree on what language to speak, and ppl can't agree to worship God, which one, or to worship at all. A segment of our population engages in immoral behavior, our children are inoculated and forcefed a revisionist version of American history, so when this leadership falters, they won't have to worry, as another generation of communists are just waiting in the bullpen.

    A civil war is natural and a growth process for any country with heavy internal tensions.

    I don't see the military siding with the government against the ppl, it's just too far-fetched. The more likely scenario will be the President will bring in Russian troops and dress them in US military garb, so we will be hesitant to shoot at them, but they won't!

    Nuclear, or other high-power weapons will not have a place in a civil war. The government would be stupid if they destroyed their own country, because they would have nothing to rule over in that case!

    Can we got through these one at a time? What evidence do you have this country is divided?

    What more evidence do you need Mak?

    I don't think we're "civil war," divided. More like "Tower of Babel," divided.

    God caused us to speak different languages to divide us?

    So the partys being equally divided indicates a deep divide between our people? I dont think it does. I think the deep divide is between the partisans on either side.

    I guess you'd have to ask Him. Good luck with that.

    Re: Is a civil war in the U.S. imminent?

    The problem this thread is having is a failure to set forth a uniform agreement on the definition of a Civil War.

    Huge, nationwide civil insurrections are on the way in the United States, but they will bear no resemblance to two clearly defined warring Armies, continually clashing until one surrenders.

    The next Civil War in the United States will be started by a fight in a bar, someone cutting in line at a convenience store, a single shot killing a child, a disagreement on a construction job site...

    Rudderless tribal America is a powder keg of hate with the flame drawing closer daily.

    Re: Is a civil war in the U.S. imminent?

    Although I'm a firm believer in "anything's possible", I think of imminent as meaning something will occur given current conditions not something that might change our country drastically that we really couldn't accurately predict.

    People have talked about another Civil War in our country since the first/last one. I lived in the South my whole childhood and I was constantly exposed to "The South Will Rise Again" being said, displayed, sang, communicated in any way because there are always people who don't know any better. Those people generally either grow up or they are too lazy to actually do anything about their stance.

    But like others have said, people in the US are happy. Although some extremists may believe that we are having our rights violated or that we are living in some sort of police state or that one side or another is ruining this country, that is not a majority view with any group. And you would need a good portion of the civilization to support any sort of Civil War or Secession attempt. That support simply isn't there. Generally happy people do not want war, especially not with their neighbors or family.
