I'll say the Ireland and UK.

Who gives a toss. They've killed enough innocent people to fatten their wallets. Let them kill themselves.

The mainstream media sure has done a grand job of causing a huge divide with extreme partisan bias.

Obviously the intervention would come from the North!

Canada would send the all powerful empower Trudeau to the rescue. He could dress up in culturally appropriate native Indian gear.

They always invite the extremes of each side on to shout at each other.

And be ready for all the refugees?

Thinking back to when someone on Inishturk made a remark that if Trump was elected they could all come to the island. Literally overwhelmed they were!

Kiiiiind of yes. But really no.

We here in Limerick supplied grey uniforms to the rebels and got ships past the yankee blockade.

They were carted out of this archway on Edward St. and down to Limerick docks.



Peter Tait the owner of the Limerick Clothing Factory made quite the packet of money. Bought himself a lovely big gaff up in Southill too! A small handful of these uniforms are still extant in U.S. museums.

Canada and EU and other westerns would support blue states.

The goal is to win both coasts.

Russia and China try some crimea tactics on the west coast. To divide the population, sow division.

Mexico is initially neutral. The cartels start importing Russian/Chinese support equipment to the red states.

Big empty place for just 1m Indians.

They weren't some harmonious Avatar-style hippy colony either back in the day. They were constantly leathering the ****e out of each other. Apaches were particularly nasty.

Humans are 'troublemakers'. If you don't believe that, you are tending towards racism.

Well, for a start, every one of us who has family, friends there and loved ones of any description gives a toss...

People who value life , ‘give a toss’.. you seriously need to have a word with yourself or in fact somebody who can help you.

Before the troublemakers arrived there was no Canada, USA or Mexico. So if the USA is set to implode it is to do with the people who set up that territory. If they all went back to their home countries, the locals would probably resume their nasty wars.

If they do have a war, I truly hope they keep it civil.

Bob Geldof, Bono and Elton John would sort out a huge charity fundraising blockbuster gig to be held simultaneously in Wembley, London, Woodstock in upstate New York and on the top on Mount Fuji with a guitar solo beamed live from Chris Hadfield on the International Space Station.

It would be called Love Aid...
