On a scale of 0 - 100, 100 being absolute pure certainty and 0 being absolutely no clue...how certain are you?
Who do you think we would go to war with? I personally think that a war is unlikely at this point. Mattis wouldn't allow the armed forces to mobilize without good reason. We currently have no foreign policy. Short of China invading Japan or Russia invading Europe (which would call up our aid by international treaty), there's no set policy let alone any type of agreement for a response to an international incident that would allow for an all out war with another country. The people who would formulate some sort of response, the National Security Council, is in such disarray that no response would materialize. Case in point: North Korea just tested a new missile. There was no new talk of sanctions, or any of Trump's usual strongman rhetoric. He barely made a peep. Behind all his bluster, his philosophy tends to be "leave me alone and I'll leave you alone," ... because deep down he's a huge coward and hopes no one else will find out.
I have a house in Puerto Rico. Three bedrooms, a few blocks from the ocean, everyone's invited. But wait! Puerto Rico is part of the U.S. so chances are a passing nuclear cruiser, armed with cruise missiles will lob one at San Juan and one at Ponce and there goes that idea!
This guy scares the living shit out of me too Belle. He's capable of anything. But half the country thinks he's the bee's knees...
Look, we're Americans. We're here because no one else wanted us. They're not going to take us back. So we have to defend our little back yards and little pink houses with what ever means possible because it's all we got... Running? Not an option. In case you haven't heard most Europeans think we're jerks. My daughter has been in Belgrade, Serbia for the last five months on a scholarship and she can attest to the animus surrounding us Americans.
I can attest to one thing because I've seen it with my own eye's, we are the baddest MOFO's on the block. Being stationed on an aircraft carrier and maintaining state of the art jet aircraft will do that to you...
It's my dad's house and it's been pretty much abandoned since he passed. Stayed there when he got sick and the first night, trying to get some sleep, was a nightmare. You heard the Coquis (little tree frogs indigenous to the islands for anyone who never heard the name) but you also heard the feral cats fighting just outside the window and the dogs barking and the rooster's crowing and the crickets, and cicada's, and it was just bedlam out there! My dad slept through it. I had to go get ear plugs.
