Whether we like it or not, welfare, unemployment and medicaid are more geared towards national security than humanitarian efforts. I doubt that 20% of the people could win a war but I don't think that citizens will be quick to choose a side and a lot of deaths will result from non-participation.

It's fun to think of defending a location until back-up arrives. In Hopewell a city of 25,000 there are only 60 police officers, 20 or 30 sheriffs but the older residents are 25% of the pop. Most American cities are similar in make-up.

Due to the Patriot Act, the government knows who owns weapons and has a way of contacting those citizens; email addresses, ip adresses, cellular and the ability to send messages directly to certain television sets. Hence the reason for switching to digital versus analog.

Victory will never happen, people that earn below $20,000/yr have no allegiance to big business, the government or comfort and they are breeders of the criminal echelon but are rarely participants. The falling middle class will attack them first. Most of their men are incarcerated, the boys will shoot but their marksmanship is far from adequate.

The government will utilize drones, long distance weapons and air assaults long before sending in ground units. The war will begin along the southern border as Mexican refugees flee the drug war, when it gets turned up to full throttle within the next two years.

Don't you find it funny that the U.S gave Mexico money to fund the war on drugs but they didn't provide the technology to end the war quickly?

Who in the hell provides a military unit to cordone off a resort so that tourism can continue? Alcapulco, Puerta Vallarta, Cancun and numerous other tourists locations in Mexico. lmao

Picture this, if you don't help me not only will I annoy you forever but my children will suffer and you will have to live with the fact that you had the Brains to help them and you sat there typing away and did nothing.
The best help for your children is for YOU to insist they attend school, do their homework, get plenty of rest, and select their friends carefully. Without a proper education they will be nothing forever. Stress the importance of NOT having children until after they are educated, and after they have a good job and can raise their children outside of the housing projects (or other low income situations).
