    There have been many threads expressing opinions about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan . Since thefall of the Soviet Union, and Red China opening up to the world's market place, the lines between us and the Communist countries are not so sharp.

    With the conditions in the world today, what nation do you think is the greatest threat to the United States? By nation, I mean a sovereign, organized state, not a terrorist group or some other radical movement such as Al Quada, or the Taliban.

    China, , in the future , both economically and militarily.

    But Iran is the most immediate and dangerous threat to peace on 4 continents.

    The country that is the greatest threat to the US? Ourselves.

    I bought a Sunday dress shirt the other month that said "Made in Vietnam"-----so I guess we ain't mad at them no more and they ain't mad at us

    The country that poses the most threat----hard to say---China would be up there on top of the list----but shoot---If I were China's leader--it would be hard for me to fire a shot at us first---because we owe them too much money--see??? It would be foolish for them to wipe us off the map--with us oweing them--what???---In the trillions now???---I mean---how are they gonna get their money with us gone????

    The only idiots I know that would be foolish enough to fire "the big one" at us--would be Iran----I mean--think about it---we ain't on their "You owe us, Chump!" list---so they don't have anything to loose!!!

    Yes---definitely Iran!!!

    Putin is more a threat to his own people than to us at this point.
    Iran is stupid, yes, but the most it could get in at us would be a coupla punches before even its own big daddy Russia kicks its butt.
    I say China.
    It doesn't have to attack us.
    All it has to do is call us on our debts, and we're owned.

    Many of us here remember the days when the capitalist world called china a paper tiger, the bamboo curtain, and so on, and many capitalists depicted it as a slobbering, poor, begging country unable to support its own people.

    Never thought I'd see the day when the once mighty Uncle Sam would be hocked to the neck to China.

    What happened ?

    Never mind.

    That question deserves another thread.

    My thoughts exactly, Padre. We are being destroyed from within.

    What about south of the border, Mexico seems to be causing a lot of havoc in our southern states with all the kidnappings and drug wars. The immigration battle is just on the back burner while congress and Obama shove Obamacare down our throats. I think Mexico is a problem. Not militarily, but if there are over 12 million illegal aliens in the USA right now and there has been talk of them trying to take back some of the southern part of the USA. Then there is the super highway project that could allow many to come into the US very quickly. Call me a conspiracy theorist, but the press has been real silent on Mexico lately and that scares me.

    The only way any country could be a serious threat to us is because we as a nation have sold our national soul to the devil for a temporary high!

    Pogo nailed it with, "We have met the enemy, and he is us!"

    Even though it's not a country I'd say the single biggest threat to the United States right now is the international banking cartel and our own corporate fascist state that's grown up around it here.

    The corporitos must love it knowing they got you all so tied up worrying about "external threats" all the time you pay them hardly any mind at all while they suck this country dry right under your noses.

    You could be right.

    Pakistan itself may not be the issue, but it's surrounded by a hodgepodge of unstable regions who change leaders about as often as we change shirts.

    It's impossible for the Westerner...you've got folks who look alike, worship similarly, and hate each other's guts.

    ...but they always seem to hate Jews and Americans more...

    That would be the United States. Abraham Lincoln once said "If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we must live through all time, or die by suicide."

    I think it is Iceland. That warrior island nation will be the doom of us all some day.

    I can speak with a little authority on this since I lived in Mexico for over 9 years as a missionary and now live less than 9 miles from the Mexican border in S. Texas.

    Nothing like the news to blow things out of proportion. The only people who need to fear shooting or kidnapping in MOST cases are those involved in the drug trade. There is the RARE exception of the passer-by that gets caught in the cross-fire, but as long as one avoids the shadier side of life they can expect to be as safe down here as anywhere else in the USA.

    Plus most Mexicans DON'T WANT the USA back. Why would they? To them it is the 'Promised Land'. If Mexico were to take over parts of the USA those parts would quickly fall into the same abyss as the rest of the country- and they know that!

    I'm more leery of Russia than any other country as far as our security is concerned.

    The greatest threat is the globalist cabal regardless of what country they reside in.
