Who will be our next enemy

As General Patton once said, “Americans love to fight.” So what happens when we run out of people to fight?

Since World War II we have been in some kind of conflict with “someone”.

1940s – Germany, Japan and the start of the cold war.

1950s – Korea, and the cold war.

1960s and early 1970s – Vietnam and the cold war.

1980s – cold war came to an end.

1990s – Bosnian War, Gulf War and various smaller conflicts.

2000s to present – war on terror.

2012 and beyond – we are running out of terrorist to kill. The American people are putting the 9/11 attacks behind us, people are getting bored of drone strikes, Bin Laden is dead,,, now what?

Example from the Walking Dead

For you Walking Dead fans out there, do remember when Shane died at the end of Season 2? Do you know “why” Shane had to die?
