If America implodes (e.g. via Civil war), who will come to her aid

If America was to implode, let's say via a civil war, who will come to her rescue?

I'll say the Ireland and UK.

...Or can it ever implode? every nation has a connection there. a war in America, is a world war surely.

Probably Will Smith , Bruce Willis and Tommy Lee Jones .
Mel Gibson might give them a dig out too and maybe Morgan Freeman.

Right I'll indulge you for a few minutes....


Why would it implode? I have not heard a single comment or suggesting to suggest a flight of fancy...


And if it was to, how would Ireland or the UK even have the capability to come to their rescue? The is just totally unrealistic.


There may well be some civil rest in coming years, but it will be quelled by the national guard it it goes that far. There definitely will not be any international intervention that you can be sure of.

Maybe someone will invade and steal their resources in the name of introducing democracy.

Wars are often started from something miniscule. I dont like thier....

UK and Ireland could start the talk, round up the allies. like WW2

Most countries that has had civil wars had national guards

Round up the allies?

Please elaborate.

What allies would be "rounded up"? Why would allies be needed? Would they take a side? Who's side would they be on?

Easy to say when you dont have cousins or relations there.

How many America investments are in this country.

How many American presidents have connection to UK/Ireland
