    I think this is known as a "non sequitur".

    The political affiliation of the presidents during the last 2 "world wars" is in no way related to the chance of there being a 3rd "world war" currently.

    A chance which I consider to be very low.


    Edit: This of course assumes that you define "world war" as "multiple major nations all over the world fighting each other".

    However, if you defined "world war" as "conflict all over the world", then I think we have qualified for that for a few decades now.

    Perotisa, ever get the chance to read James Bradley's "Imperial Cruise." ?

    As usual with all of Bradley's books, "Flag of My Father," "Fly boys," he always starts out mentioning the Philippine Insurrection. I don't know why, I think he actually wants to write a book about the war before the revisionist historians accomplish rewriting history. As you noticed the revisionist just a few years ago have already changed the name of the "Philippine Insurrection" to the "Philippine-American War."

    But Bradley's "Imperial Cruise" explains how Teddy Roosevelt lit the fuse for war in the Pacific with Japan.

    The book start out really weird, American progressives wanting to continue America's "Manifest Destiny." America expanding across the Pacific and our final goal returning to our ancestors motherland in the dark forest of Germany.

    Controversial book when first published.

    Short answer: no.

    We'll be fine.

    If you read my follow up post and if you're old enough to remember, during the 60's, 70's and 80's during Presidential elections it was always mentioned that Democrats had gotten America into two world wars and Korea and the Vietnam War would be added to the list during the 1968 Presidential elections.

    BTW: Do you remember what the 1960 Presidential campaign was mostly about ? Who would be more aggressive stopping Communist expansion in the world, Nixon (Republican) or Kennedy( Democrat)
    Americans were pretty split who would be better at the job and not turning the Cold War into a hot war. The voters went to the polls and along with the corpses from the Cook County cemeteries, JFK was elected. The rest is history.

    Putin is a Master only in a few right wing fearmongering minds. His epic move with the missiles into Ukraine is a REAL master stroke...

    BushII was the checker player in the crowd, and a piss poor one at that.

    Putin is just playing with himself....

    All of the trouble that we have had ever since with Islamist terrorist all goes back to that one tragic act of incompetence on Carter's part.
    You have a credible argument there.

    I was born in the early 80s.

    However I was aware, vaguely, of these things.

    Still don't see how "are we on the brink of WWIII" prompts a response of "democrats were president when WWI and WWII started"..

    If you had explained that, in your opinion, democrat control of the government made war more likely, it would have made more sense.
