    It depends on how you define "civil war". Are we talking something similar to the North vs. South fighting against each other military wise between 1861 and 1865? Then no, or at least definitely not within the next decade. If you're defining a civil war as the left and the right become increasingly polarized and start physically fighting each other with mass protests against riot police then that's definitely possible.

    In consideration of how wrong Xerxe has been on just about every issue under the sun, I'll say No.

    Probably not ouright civil war—I don't know how an opposing side would support itself with logistical networks being so centralized now.

    The United States is a big place, so ethnic balkanization seems more likely. Especially as existing infrastructure continues to breakdown and will isolate some parts more from the others.

    Nukes or WW seem more likely.

    Let's just think for second what would happen if a band of antifa were to conduct a mass shooting at a MAGA rally, or assassinate Trump.

    Except China has a pretty solid historical track record of kicking itself in the balls.

    In consideration of how much of a fucking retard @Kill4Me is, I'll take that as a compliment. (:

    Best outcome I see is that the SJW control-freak leftist and the overbearing pro-capitalist proud boy nationalist wipe each other out. I absolutely can't stand either and I would love to see them riddle each other with bullets while another more sensible faction lays back and waits to seize power. Time for some natural selection take place and restore the masculinity the left lacks and the empathy the right lacks.

    The West kicked them a while ago. They remember. They act like they remember. They traipse around like everything around them is a threat they need to expunge.


    They hate humiliation. They're mad as fuck and they'll show no mercy.

    China had been shat on by the Mongols, the West, the Japanese... but they'd rather still mind their own business for the most part.

    Historically, China had rather wanted respect and reverence rather than dominating, invading and having imperialistic concerns. They had built the biggest ship in the world at the time not for exploring, but for showing off and making others respect them. They would rather have people come to them and show them respect. That's where the word "kowtow" came from.

    What China is most concerned about is not "losing face".

    Maybe a twitter war in the upcoming election. Does that count?

    Xi Jinping wants China's military to be on an equal footing with America's by 2050.

    This. China is playing the long game imo. Their goal is the devalue the petrodollar and gain confidence in Chinese currency. A war would be bad business.
