Interesting discussion. Coming back to the UN troops, there are many who believe UN troops will be brought in to do the dirty work. Some think they are already here. I doubt it on both points. Part of the issue is that if things fall apart here, there will be serious problems in many other places and long simmering disputes will erupt into shooting wars in various parts of the world. Countries are not going to deplete themselves of soldiers under those circumstance just because the US president wants them to come over and kill a lot of Americans. They’ll have their own problems and priorities. Too many people seem to think that we can collapse and it’ll still be business as usual everywhere else.
