    You think any of those organizations could hit us with a nuke and survive the exchange? Do you honestly believe they have been around this long, and will suddenly suicide?

    MAD works because everyone understands the rules, nasty as they are.

    For all this build-up, WW3 had better be a bit bigger than the U.S. flattening a couple minor nations.

    85 trillion of what used to be 10 million, of what used to be 8, which is actually 2.

    What have you and I been counting, again?

    I don't know... I'm still trying to figure out what on earth could we be talking about that would equal 85 trillion. I don't even think there is 85 trillion dollars on the planet...

    We were talking about what constitutes a "World War". I wondered if it had to do with the death toll and mentioned if a million people have to die. However, if that was the case, then conflicts like the Iran-Iraq War or the Congo Civil war would fit that criteria. Only two conflicts have breached the ten million mark in terms of death toll, and that was WW1 and WW2.

    Good now?

    Well, sigh, I was saying that if the War on Terror counted as a World War, it wouldn't be #3, it'd be several numbers higher.
