    Tough crowd on this board.

    At the risk of having insults lobbed at me, I will say that I think the question in the poll isn't all that unreasonable given how unsettled some parts of this world are. We had 2 world wars in the last 100 years. It's not like he asked about the possibility of another virgin birth or sacrificing Christians to lions.

    I'm also watching my spelling.

    Good for you, I try hard to watch mine, but any human being can make a mistake, a misspelled word isn't worth starting WWIII over.

    Another POV is that these wars, though consistent, are also steadily getting smaller. Compare every war since WWII in terms of casualties/time.

    This is a good trend!

    Also, the notion of massed ground armies is obsolete at the upper tiers of the game. Precision standoff weapons makes that a death sentence.

    Only in backwaters that can't keep up is that effective, and then only on each other.

    You predicted that Obama was my daddy? Really? Sorry, but that's impossible from a chronological and a racial standpoint.

    LOL....you can generally take solace in the fact that if NP predicts something....and you want the exact opposite to occur....you are in pretty darn good shape.

    You really don't have to worry about Russia but a nuke or dirty placed in NY or LA by a rogue nation..........do I have to say more?
