Are we entering a "new" type of global war, which focuses on disarming crazy people?

The North Korean leader, who appears to be out of his mind; Hamas and Hezbollah who are nutso radical Islamists; isn't this all turning into a war against the insane?

    Yes , we are, but we will probable not be disarming them, it is too dangerous, we will be erasing them and preferably their ideas from present time.

    We are entering in a surgical type of war, were we have to take , couple terrorist in a town of 5 milion, were they have some support in the local population but where we are not allowed to have colateral dammage.

    So conventional army is not in the game , but special forces. We can expect conventional armys to get smaller or to get policing job in the world, that means they will have to have more social and language skills in keeping peace, then fighting which will be special forces job.

    Some popular analist has said that the army will separate in peace keeping force ( with man and woman, can be older) language , social skills, must protect and are bound by international, local ,and war law, and a strike force ,lean mean fighting mashine of man without restrictions of law but with only one purpose ,destruction of targer.

    Today we have only few regimes who are not in the system, Syria, Iran,North Korea and they are the problem, african banana warlords, are not significant problem.After resolving ( read topling leadership) in these states, the only global problem will be terorism, and more and more countrys are joining in antiteror fight ( independent of USA propaganda ...)

    If you read lately news, Iran is warning Israel if he atacks Syria , so we could see perhaps resolving two of three problems.

    Since the 1960s, we have had a grudging foreign policy that stipulated we engage anybody not obedient to us. To that end, yes, we are disarming people who are "crazy" enough to stand against our military.

    The Soviets were a bit of an oddity, however. We both realized that we would be whittled away to nothing if we actually tried an engagement against each other and there would be no gain. It was a sort of "live and let live" situation. They could fund their projects for supporters and we could put in our dictators for labor and resources.

    Who is to say that none of the other nuclear nations (India, Pakistan, France, USA, England, Russia, China, Israel, perhaps Argentina, Iran, did I miss some ?) will eventually have an unstable government ? Don't call me crazy, but Pakistan and India don't seem to be too buddy/buddy and while Putin seems to be stable right now, the Russians are only one election away from some old fart controlling a big arsenal (if they can find it all and haven't already sold some).

    You mean arming crazy people, right? Not disarming. All the power hungry dictators of the world are crazy and that includes G.W.Bush. And they have (control of) the arms (heaven help us).

    no, that is just how they are labelled, they are fought against because they're insaen. They cant say that they are being fought against because they are simply Hezbollah or Iranian or anything

    Yes, we need the USA world police or maybe the Minority Report.

    I prefer the movies.
