Looks like someone has a war or two, new, in mind....and nothing but crumbs for the rest of us.

Indeed Peter. And that there is no manufacturing base other than military to speak of. It's all gone to China and other places. The only thing the US makes now is military hardware. The really useful stuff is no longer made there. All that knowledge will go, all the skills. No longer self sufficient. Just a totally militarised society left and that is not sustainable either. Like Rome when they no longer did anything of their own but just go and plunder other countries. I don't know if there is any coming back from that sort of total collapse. There will be local solutions for sure but ....
