It's already started. We've declared (economic) war on our creditors.



Clausewitz: War is merely the continuation of politics by other means.

It all depends on which masses trigger what first. If it is India and Pakistan it might remain regional. Israel and Iran could be worse for no good reason. China and the US don't want it because it screws up the money supply and Russia is still trying to figure out if it wants to give the keys to the city back to the KGB. That would be a game changer.

There is more likely going to be a mass disease or mass death that is going to finally smack folks in the head to make them pay attention that we are all in this together.

As the Kentucky motto says, and was first written by Aesop and first used in a speech by Patrick Henry: United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

And that is an ALL inclusive WE. No exceptions just because we don't like some of "THOSE" people.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I agree. Israel WILL indeed be the cause. India and Pakistan will never use it against each other although they "talk" and "threat" a lot. However, Israel will definitely be involved either by directly or indirectly attacking Iran. Even if Iran does not have nukes yet, I am sure Pakistan will be more than willing to supply them. It will be a mess. "Not-a-Yahoo" is much more radical and scarier than Ahmadinajad.

Hippie talk! I still say we exclude everyone who voted for GWB, and the ones who voted for him twice get hard labor for life. Odd that they're the ones crowing so loudly for accountability, innit?

What makes Democracy work is freedom of choice. So you say punish the people that didn't vote the way you want? Classic Liberal.

Nothing in that Wikipedia link mentioned Alanis so it is incomplete.

There's lots of bad luck but no irony...
