Good for power to spread although probably not beneficial for ourselves

Many think Western civilization is in decline as a whole, and more and more nations in the globe no longer accept to receive orders from Washington.
The rules of the game are changing, as we've seen in Syria, where the Americans can't impose their will. Besides,Trump, who is portrayed as a moron, has rightly identified China as the number one threat against American hegemony.
The real question is whether the Americans will accept a soft landing, or will they put the world to fire and sword in order to maintain their dominance.

Under the hypothetical situation where your country went to war with another country, would you be willing to risk your life to fight for your own country? This question was asked in an international survey by Gallup at the beginning of 2015.

He is not portrayed as, he is a moron... ;)
Doesn't take much to realize that, it's been apparent for decades...

As for the economies: maybe... I still think there is a whole lot of expertise here that will nit simply vanish and/or be transferred someplace else...

94% ? I don't buy it! :lol:
The thing is there's a huge gap between responding to this question on the phone comfortably sitting in your living room during peacetime, and volunteering when war is declared.

I guess... but not the only ones bypassed.

* the survey is from 2015

This year it was carried out by the WIN/Gallup International Association in 64 countries around the world.

IMHO, Netanyahu doesn't even "want" his policy to go this way - but he is catering to (a few) right wingers as so many others... He should grow a pair and stop being their bitch or else there will never be any peace...

It is written... there shall never be peace in those lands...

It all started when Hitler offered the Jews a safe pessage from Germany to Palestine in the mid 30s and was further aggravated by the Brits in 1949(?)

How ironic... they are doing exactly the same (or worse when taking into consideration the years) to others what happened to themelves years ago...

well to me a lot depends on why we're fighting and who we're fighting. I didn't agree with Iraq and wouldn't sign up to fight. Now if we were invaded or another world war type scenario then probably. But for me I would be looking for two countries. Germany and America. If Russia decided to invade western Europe I would be going to the recruiting center and show them my long range shooting skills (here in America I had a few firearms at one time and practiced long range shooting and god gave me a very good skill) and fight.

The position of my "proud, independent, sovereign nation" is very interesting...

I'm in the "probably not unless absolutely necessary, e.g. Invasion" category. And even then I'd fight more for the future of me and my family than " the country"

for it depends for which ideals we are fighting... I think I will only fight in case of invasion... for sure I won't fight under the flag of the EU ...
