10. Let's hope so. This US has few reserves to draw on to carry out another 1/2 or even 1/4 war.

I'd hate to think of the vulnerabilities in American power and influence that would be revealed if we were to get sucked into a regional war between Sunni and Shi'ia Islam in half a dozen countries at the same time.

It won't be much fun for Americans at home, either. If you liked post-9/11 America, just wait for the nasty police state we'll become after a string of soft American targets get blown up around the world and another high casualty event inside "the Homeland."

Those 15,000 Libyan MANPADs now floating around arms bizarres will worry us for years to come. What a potential cluster f-ck that can cause! What a stupid policy to promote an armed uprising in a place like Libya!
