I was thinking about this the other day. Obviously if you had a severe economic collapse worldwide that was sustained, such that countries couldn't maintain a modern military...you'd see a return to prior forms of warfare. However, it just seems that large standing armies have gone the way of the dodo bird. I'm not talking civil war style, because obviously military techniques/strategy changes. However, it seems like high value targets are easier to take out now. A few precise hits here or there and an entire military collapses due to lack of support. I'm just wondering after all that rambling, if something large on the scale of WWII will ever happen again. Seems that with this many people in the world, it's tough to get a conflict of that magnitude. There is no more expansion into new territory and it's usually between 2 bordering countries. Thoughts? Insight? I'm an idiot? Agree? or you have no idea what I just typed?
