Okay folks, everyone here watches the news, right? It's okay, neither do I because I would rather be watching random shows on TechTV... ...but, let's assume that we do and we're actually concerned about global politics. We have three major powers in the world: Russia: They're still out there. If they could get their running water going, they'll be a superpower again... China: Would you like flies (I mean Fries) with that? Please give us lots of money and we'll try to get you into the White House. and of course.... America: We have nukes and we want to use them. We have big weapons and a massive military force and want to use them. We have a big ego and we have to show it. In the coming years expect the US to be at war with at least three more countries. We will pick and choose whom we want to destroy and will maintain our will over any countries that dare not to follow our doctrines (as soon as we figure out what they are). The Media will continue to give us live feeds of our victorious heroes laying waste to our evil enemies. This will, in turn, launch another massive terror attack even larger than 9/11/01. Homeland Security will become "more diligent" and an angry and scared US People will welcome a "temporary suspension" of our basic rights until the "terror threat" is lifted. The problem is that the threat will never be lifted. The US will continue to go to war with anyone they please the American People will be powerless to stop it. We'll support it at the start, but eventually some of us will grow weary. We will be branded as traitors or terrorist-sympathisers and will be ex-communicated by the media.... . . . This may all sound like something out of a bad George Orwell rip-off, but just look at the signs. The probability of it happening increase with each passing day. -Ferret "...Join today and help destroy the Eurasian menace!"
