    So? Months,Years+++ or?

    History tells us the only winners will be corporations,black marketeers .....perhaps nowadays even commodity farmers?
    Who will be allied with whom.. US,Canada,Australia,Israel and UK will no doubt supply lots of cannon fodder, Islamic oil rich countries etc also allied?
    Russia/China..dunno...?
    Loosers will be billions of innocents and conned fighters for democracy or freedom (gag!).
    Suspect Thailand having so many generals etc will be leading the charge to return happiness to the people...hugh???
    Bet some nutter will push THE button though...?
    Thank fk I am old ..just hope my kids and grand kids will be old also before the fit hits the sham.

    WW3 will happen the moment that CHina and Russia are pushed too far or the Axis of Evil with their smiling American face believe that they have completely surrounded those two countries and are confident of defeating them in a war. They are well on the way with US military bases in virtually every country of the world.

    Oh yes they are the ones that are being pushed. Russia has committed numerous territorial violations over the last year and is increasingly becoming a drunken belligerent bear. The invasion of Crimea and Ukraine etc etc. The list could go on for days.

    http://www.newsweek.com/2014/10/31/d...cs-278694.html

    With regards to China they are flexing all over the place. Claiming the entire south China sea is an act of incredible belligerence unprecedented in modern times. Destabilising the boarder with India..

    The key fact you seem to miss is that both of these nations are Oligarchies just like the US yet you seem to turn a blind eye to their crimes.

    Oh get real you are almost sounding as hoodwinked as that nitwit Ohoh. Sure the US is guilty of much but give it a break it is a far better place to live than Russia or China.

    Snub you almost get it, and yet you don't.



    You grumble about Crimea (where the population wanted to be part of Russia) and forget to think about the blatant wars started by the US, and regime changes in recent times. I guess as a merkin you are basically pleased about the US taking over the world.

    History tells us that an empire lasts for around 250 years max until they are toppled by a superior power.

    I reckon we still a few years until it all kicks off (around 40-50 years).

    Everyone who matters is holding aces (nuclear weapons), so WW3 won't happen until I'm pushing up daisies.

    I must add with the advancement of technology, this may shave a decade or so off.

    They have an expiry date so we have to assume that someone wants to use them. In a strange way, Thailand is so insignificant it makes sense to live here.

    Kind of a military neo-colonialism extending itself these days from the Americans.

    The obvious aggressors that seek more reasons to broaden it's empire.
    If any such world war comes about, it will be instigated by the benign and benevolent USA. They won't have many [if any] allies either.

    The war-like culture.

    Really?

    Or do Marine embassy Guards count as "troops".

    Not my history, The Roman Empire lasted 1000 years the British Empire was around for over 400 - the US will not make a century.

    Bit of a myth.
    The U.S. doesn't rely on imported petroleum products.
    The idea of foreign dependence has been repeated over and again.

    Did you know that the good old USA produces and uses more of their domestic product.

    Why do you think the western alliance wants to go to war with Russia or China?

    War costs money, lives, it destroys international trade which is the basis of global wealth. War is a negative sum game nowadays since territorial conquest along with its resource acquisition is no longer an expected outcome. No civilised nation would want to appear to be playing the long outdated game of empire building (except perhaps more politically backwards developed nations such as Russia).

    Have you not noticed that there has not been direct combat between troops from powerful developed countries since Chinese and US troops faced each other directly in Korea 60 years ago?

    War isn't really in the developed world's diplomatic game anymore.

    The new game is a twisted neo-imperialism.

    My apoligies, I should have stated 250 years.

    Depending on what sources you use and how an empire is defined will obviously alter how long they lasted.

    This will back up my claim, although it can be argued.



    This is what I was taught in my Western Civilization module at university from some bloke who knew his onions (who added the argument that the figures can be manipulated). Who taught you your history?

    Yes I suppose we could debate the dates:
    Rome was founded in 753BC and fell in the West 476AD it existed for over 1200 years I would state that for 1000 of these years it was the dominant empire in the known world at the time.

    Most historians would chart the British Empire from the beginning of the 16th century therefore from 1500 to 1950, that would be nearer my timeline of 400 years where they were the worlds dominant empire.

    Anyway not to split hairs I would cheerfully bet that the USA will not enjoy over 100 years.

    Message for the OP.
    Crepitas you seem to have made quite a few depressed or sad posts lately mate. Hope you are not too down in the dumps and suggest that your concerns should be measured by what you can actually do about it.
    In most cases we can't do anything about the big stuff even if we wanted to. The best solution to these kind of issues is your favourite chill out tracks through the ear buds while you enjoy a two hour 4 handed oil massage.
    The world always seems a better place to me after that.

    1 - you vastly underestimate the costs of modern day weaponry that destroys buildings and infrastruce... which..
    2 - all gets rebuilt by the victors with enforced loans from the victors banks to pay for it.


    Just a little small part of why the US keeps going to war.There are many other reasons.

    multiple theaters of war at all times. Its not about people (if it was they would take their war chest and wipe out world poverty with it instead and still have change in their pocket to fund a real proper free at point medical system in the US).

    Don't have much of a choice.....and why wouldn't they?
    Anyway, just an extension of the old Empire.

    What's the difference towards who is running the show.
