To an outsider, the US seems to be a hotbed of religious and political hatred. The vitriol and animus between the Americans is unbelievable. Many say that if the US can’t arrange to get itself into another war pretty quickly, the whole house will come tumbling down.
Historically, the US is a nation not happy in repose. This is a nation that thrives on competition at all levels; economic; culturally; religiously; and especially in the art of war.
War, and the execution thereof is hard-baked and bred into the DNA of every American kid. To reject the honor and duty of expanding American freedoms, i.e., our way or the highway, is to court disaster. The peace seeker in America is, by all measure, unmanly. To be ‘unmanly’ in the US is an appellation to be avoided at all cost.
America goes through its periods of quiet introspection – periods when you can poke it with a stick and live. These current times, however, do not favor stick pokers. You have been duly warned.
Expect war soon…
