I'm a Vietnam "survivor" father and grandfather of three boys born to my two daughters of which one is now old enough for the draft and a younger one who will be eligible in a couple more years and I pray and hope they never have to go thru what I did or any other veteran since. To all you mother's, father's and grand parents out there that have lost loved one's or have children coming of fighting age you must be as terrified as I am of the "IDIOT and his mob of criminals that are rapidly escalating us into another world war, let's just hope we by some miracle can get by this.
Won't be surprised. Unfortunately.

On another note, was channel surfing on the radio today and listened for a few minutes of some host talking about how covid hasn't killed enough people yet (especially westerners) for the "great reduction" so the powers that be will start another war very soon. 🤮

I seriously hope we do not get into a war with China or anyone else. Our navy is not ready for anything but taking on little countries. At this time we have 11 carriers, 22 cruisers and 70 destroyers. That is our blue water surface fleet. No frigates at all and our sub fleet has been chopped too. We have some of the LCS but they are not really escorts which is where our shortage is.
Not as much faith in our Army as I used to have either. Between competing for the military uniform fashion show of the year and ensuring that transgender troops get their now mandated medical and psychological support, I don't suspect anyone has had much time left for actual combat training.

For the past 25-30 years I felt like as long as it was profitable for U.S. corporations we would be headed for war.
In today's modern World, there are only two reason why Superpowers commit to war:

1) To boost profits of the military/industrial complex members.
and/or
2) To 'field test' new or improved defensive/offensive weapon systems.

Option A is why China will be starting WW3, well that and they want to enslave Taiwan too.

I feel like something is coming. And it can't be stopped.
I agree. China has been throwing it's weight around and has created an arms race in the Pacific. Japan and S Korea have or are building carriers. S Korea has crusiers that are more powerfull than anything outside of the old Soviet Kirov battlecruisers. Australia was very anti-nuke anything, is now buying nuclear subs from the US. India has gone nuts and ever other country in the region is building up their military as much as they can.
