Five Years from Now...

Do you think the United States will be at war five years from now? It seems as if we're perpetually involved in some sort of military conflict whether it be the War on Terror or the War on Drugs. And when was the last time the US wasn't involved in any military operation? Sure, there were a couple of years between World War II and the Cold War, but that's hardly a Pax Romana.

Even now, people in Egypt loathe the American government for interfering, as they say, with their socio-political affairs. What would happen if the US stopped providing monetary aid? Should the US back out and leave the country to settle their own disputes as we had with the Civil War?

I suppose it isn't polite to conduct conversation regarding politics, so I think I'll leave it at that.
