I think the chance of some kind of conflict is high. I think some people want it.

But, I don't really picture anything really huge. That being said, one should be aware of 1914:

Little Serbia angered Austria.
Germany came in the help Austria.
Russia came in the help Serbia.
France came in to help Russia.
Germany invaded Belgium to get into France.
Britain came in the help Belgium.

North Korea? Russia? China? Iran? Syria? How big of a house of cards are we talking about? The world is something like $200T in debt. Sweeping all the playing pieces off the table would serve some people pretty well, I think.

The Chinese are moving up to the NK border. Has anyone read what the Russians are doing. They still have a lot of mobile launchers for ICBMs.

Obama is getting bullied, mocked, and humiliated or ignored by a number of countries, I wonder if he can even see the scale and larger picture of all of this, or if he just sees each incident as it’s own unique presidential challenge and that he is handling everything just great, and is in command of everything.

I think that even his worshipers might admit that if any ego is susceptible to believing that the adoration of his celebrity bubble represents the world, that it would be Obama.
