Seems like everytime we have tried to keep things normal here in the states the wars never seem to end well. With out the public having to make some sacrifices for the war effort and all working for all the equipment that is needed. Korea, vietnam, possibly this one. Am i correct in assuming this? or am i just making soemithng out of nothing?

For most Americans, if no one told them a war was going on, they wouldn't know.

The question maybe be kind of confusing.

YOu know how in WW1 and WW2 every person in america was working for the war efforort building tanks and guns, rationing food and such.

Would we have to be like that again to every truly be successful in winning a war?

Vietnam and Iraq have nothing to do with people not sacrificing and working to provide materials for the war effort. The problem is with the hippies/liberals.

The answer is no.

What's going to happen...


1. We stay in Iraq. They have oil and we need to have a strangle hold on some of it somewhere to shore up our dollar.

2. We WILL go to war with Iran, or at the very least bomb part of it. This will probably happen after a nuclear detonation (the government will say it was Iran) in Iraq, killing some of our troops or in the US. If it's in the US, it will probably be a dirty nuke. (you can draw your own conclusions, but the government will need a "real" reason to bomb Iran. And if you don't believe me, how can a bunch of people call their loved ones on cell phones from planes that are 30,000 feet in the sky when cell phones go out of range at 3,000? For clarification, they "let" 9/11 happen and will allow something else to happen to get their way. They knew 9/11 was coming, but did nothing to step up security at the airports. I know, I was on a flight on 9/10. And I was late for my flight. I ran up and just jumped on board right before they took off. No security.)

3. Prices will go up. Inflation. That's how "our" government (actually the fed will do this) get us out of our current financial problems. And your purchasing power will take a hit. Why do you think they passed that new bankrupcy legislation. Peoples credit purchases are going to be cut, because the payments will go up too.

4. Gas will hit $3.50 or $3.75 by next summer (2007) and will stay above 3 dollars per gallon. Again all to do with inflation and the control of our consumption of oil and gas. We can barely keep up with consumption now, so price will bring consumption down to sustainable levels.

I could go on, but yes, we will be at war again, prices will go up and ignorant people will believe everything the government says.

I agree.
The war effort has not brought us together, it has torn us apart.
There has been no sacrifice, just more people standing around with their hands out and grabbing for all they can while the nation plunges further into debt. Ever further.

We are a nation divided. Filling up with a socialist 5th column, self-centered assholes and the enemy within.

Gas hit $3.00 this week and will be at $3.50 in another month give or take.




Meaning it will stay there.

I think that 48,000,000 South Koreans would disagree with your assertion that the Korean War "didn't end well".
