the future of war


Recommended Posts

Like I could/would watch a 35 minute video that slows down my computer.

The video did not slow down my computer.

Then the Website?


I'll go check it out

edit: I'd just skip the Website entirely, but if curious go there before, not after, the video for I had a problem with two sound feeds

I only watched the first 30 or so seconds of the video, but the title of this thread grabs me--because the future of war is next a real big one soon.

The US has had three big wars. The Civil War, which was not a civil war, WWI and WWII. Number 4 is what I'm concerned with. The public weal is being readied much as the yellow journalism of William Randolph Hearst did with "REMEMBER THE MAINE!" While the gin up today is much more sophisticated and subtle the end result will be the same, only it won't be "A Splendid Little War" grease job to the Vice-Presidency then the White House.

That today war vets as myself are getting black slaps is all to the good for them and I sure like it--it's all part of the getting to rumble for America for America is going to beat Russia's ass. I've been worried about atomic warfare since I was 4 or 5 and learned about Hiroshima. About the same time I heard about the Holocaust and thought I might be a re-incarnated little Jew since I was born while they were being slaughtered. I dropped that idea as it wasn't rational, but fear of total war wasn't fanciful.

Growing up in the nuclear age and what I consider the age of the Holocaust aftermath, was quite a strain on a youngster. General Thermonuclear War was always in the back of my mind. It could have happened over Cuba, which is now public knowledge, and almost happened during the Reagen Administration, which is not. Now it seems nobody over here is thinking of it and that may mean it's at its greatest danger.

WWI started over some falderal in the Balkins. WWIII will start over Ukraine. Russia's only strength is it's armed to the teeth with atomic and nuclear weapons and has the means to deliver them. Unlike the US it is no hegemonic superpower, but those weapons mean it is a superpower per se. All the US has to do to win is leave it alone or only ship in a lot of free vodka. Its economy is based on oil and natural gas and is no bigger than California's. California's is 13.2% of the US GNP.
