Damn! I am already happily clicking away in another discussion
about this very subject and here you go trying to start something
on fork. Okay, I have a 5 pound bag of starbucks coffee riding
on my particular apocalypse theory. Iraq (currently developing
weapons of mass destructions) engages in an armed conflict
with the US, North Korea (currently developing weapons
of mass destructions) invades South, the US military currently unable
to support two theaters of full scale conflict spend all their time
ramping up, meanwhile the US military bureacracy in it's weakened,
pre-occupied superpower state gets take advantage of by several
rogue states around the world, possibly by other memebers of the
'Atoms Family' or maybe even a slow boat to Taiwan. Any side bets?
