  • Wanna own a "pre-war"?

    Easy.

    Buy yourself a great acoustic now, one that you really believe in, that has that extra special something which sets it apart from its' brethren.

    Hate to say it but there's bound to be some seriously major conflict on a global scale, if not outright war, somewhere sometime in the not-too-distant future.

    We are approaching the "30's" of this here century......

            Yeah, I'm thinking if you bought it today you wouldn't have to wait long for it be "pre-war". I expect Istrael and Iran to be going at it hot and heavy within the next month or so. And, I fully expect the US AND Russia will get pulled into it.

Oh, BTW, I forgot to mention my ocarina and maracas.

              Nope.
              Nobody will jump in for either Israel or Iran.
              Only idiots would get tangled into a war that can not be won by either side.
              I hope that Obama will have his Nobel Peace Medal in his office to remind him of that.
              And Putin - hopefully - still remembers what happened to the Russians in Afghanistan (which, indeed is the same that the US experience now).

                I hope you're correct, katopp. I don't think we're gonna have to wait long to find out. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

                  Keep'em crossed.
                  But the USofA are -franky- not in the position to fight another war.
                  The forces required to hold grounds in Iraq, Afghanistan ... are stretching the budget too far. Another costly involvement is beyond the means of the USofA.
                  Fortunately, Russia is rotten in it's military core, too. It is on the rise again, but not yet ready for large-scale combat outside it's back yard.
                  China, India and Pakistan are actually higher on my list than Russia, but India and Pakistan are keptat each other'S throats and China... well, as strong as she is, lacks the capability of projecting her force. Not for long and that is added to China's list of capabilities, though...

                      Good morning Opa. My, aren't we a cheery group this fine morning.

                      Here's some lyrics from part of an old folk song by Tom Lehrer from about 1959, that I used to perform in coffee houses in the early 60's. Just to keep the mood going for everyone....

                      ((
                      And we will all go together when we go
                      What a comforting thought that is to know.
                      Universal bereavement, an inspiring achievement
                      Yes, we will all go together when we go

                      / E - A - / - F#m B7 - / E E7 A F#m / B7 - E C7 /

                      We will all go together when we go
                      All suffused with an incandescent glow
                      No one will have the endurance to collect on his insurance
                      Lloyd's of London will be loaded when they go

                      / F - Bb - / - Gm C7 - / F F7 Bb Gm / C7 - F C#7 /

                      Oh we will all fry together when we fry
                      We'll be french fried potatoes by and by
                      There will be no more misery when the world is our rotisserie
                      Yes, we will all fry together when we fry

                      / F# - E - / - - Eb - / - - / E - / Bb7 - Eb - /

                      Down by the old maelstrom
                      There'll be a storm before the calm

                      / Eb F7 Bb7 - / Bb7 G7 Cm B7 /

                      And we will all bake together when we bake
                      There'll be nobody present at the wake
                      With complete participation in that grand incineration
                      Nearly three billion hunks of well-done steak
                      ))

                      I'm pretty sure you can find the whole song on-line to impress your friends and neighbors with this bit of Cold War nostalgia.

                        Tom Lehrer did some very funny songs.
                        I hadn't heard that one.

                            Most people using this term are referring to the second world war.
