Are you worried about going to war with Russia?

ATM it is between Russia and Ukraine. Russian military is basically invading Ukraine Primea (sp?). The rest of the world is against Russia doing this. Do you think we will step in and then get into a big war again?

No, I think a World War is inevitable.

I agree, but with Russia? It is hard to say. It is kind of between Russia, North Korea, or Middle East again.

My husband is out now but he was in during the previous wars. Hopefully it blows over like the Korea stuff basically has. Threats will little action. Pushing buttons.

I would say out of everywhere the only way we would be in a World War would be against the entirety of BRIC. They will fight together. As it is the state of economy and as we have so many uprisings, there is little to prevent the warmongers from trying to make their profits off a global war. If we look at it technically we are currently already in a state of global war cyberly. The cyber side will most likely escalate. The main question is will we really realize when it gets physical or will it be played off until they cannot maintain the illusion we are not in such a war.

I do get aggravated with the petty threats and fake fear they put on the news for people who don't understand what the hell they are talking about...but I am a little more worried about Putin than I was North Korea simply because we have cut off stuff to them and it seems to be a bigger issue with trade than North Korea...plus the amount of nukes that Russia & the US have are ridiculous when North Korea is said to not have many at all and are working on the usage of them.

I think  Putin  is   probably  pissed  about   them  not  doing  so well  in the Olympics    and the fact  that  it was exposed that  they offered  shoddy  arrangements to the Olympians.    So  yeah  I could see him  itching  for a fight.    Am I worried about it?  No.  I  can  easily  see Russia  attacking  us  and China  jumping  on the bandwagon  along  with the Middle East  ...  just because.
