If the war actually gets underway, what do you think the probablity of the following scenarios happening are?

Please rate them on a 1-10 scale, with a "1" being [in your mind] a certainty that you can take to the bank, and a "10" being that it doesn't even have a drug induced paranoid schizoid possiblity of happening.



1. The reinstatement of the Draft.

2. Terror attacks on a "small" scale (suicide bombers, letter bombs, etc.) in the US. Casualties will be in the dozens or hundreds.

3. Medium scale terror attacks in the US (large bombs, biological, etc). Death toll in the thousands to ten thousands

4. Large scale terror attacks in the US (nuclear bombs, entire cities). Death toll in the millions.

5. Non "fatal", but disruptive terroism (destroyed bridges, pipelines, etc).

6. Enact Martial Law

7. An assasination attempt on Pres Bush and/or other high level officials

8. The US economy will slip into a depression, similar to the 1930's.

Meh. Perhaps a remote possibility.

2. Terror attacks on a "small" scale (suicide bombers, letter bombs, etc.) in the US. Casualties will be in the dozens or hundreds.

May continue regardless. Nothing seems to deter them.

3. Medium scale terror attacks in the US (large bombs, biological, etc). Death toll in the thousands to ten thousands

May be likely if Iraq is left alone.

4. Large scale terror attacks in the US (nuclear bombs, entire cities). Death toll in the millions.

Nope. They aren't that good.

5. Non "fatal", but disruptive terroism (destroyed bridges, pipelines, etc).

Naw. They just want to kill. They know nothing of strategic bombing.

6. Enact Martial Law

Not likely.

7. An assasination attempt on Pres Bush and/or other high level officials

I doubt it, but I suppose it could happen.

8. The US economy will slip into a depression, similar to the 1930's.

Nice try.

The military and the adminstration don't want this. Just a certian democrat representive from New York who feels he has to attack anything the current adminstration does just because of who they are.

2. Terror attacks on a "small" scale (suicide bombers, letter bombs, etc.) in the US. Casualties will be in the dozens or hundreds.

We are bound to piss somebody off an they are likely to lash out but I don't think that there are not many groups out there that can support large scale operations. Al-quid (spl?) is one of them.

Not likely. The threat isn't from within.

Lone wolf with a gun? Possible.

Doubt it. There is a liquidity bubble in the US right now because investors don't have a firm idea on where to put their money. Once this plays out that money will be headed back in and strenghten. The market hates uncertainty. It is worse then bad news.

I'd give an 8 to numbers 2 and 5. The others are 10's.

So if the consensus is that none of these grim scenarios are likely to happen, then why are you so opposed to this war?

I'm not opposed to it. Iraq should be disarmed, period.
