Americans Not Too Worried About World War III

5 February 2015

While peace-loving people around the world hold their breath with fear that World War III might break out at any time in multiple hot-spots, most Americans (72%) arenít too worried about it, according to a recent Trotter poll.

Trotter interviewed some ordinary Americans about the survey.

ďI donít think World War III is going to have a big effect on my life,Ē said Angus Merchant, 44, of San Diego.

ďAs long as the price of gas doesnít go up too much then Iím not really worried about it. These things happen, and America always comes out on top. USA! USA!Ē

ďThe military hasnít drafted people into the army since the Vietnam war. This will be a walk in the park,Ē said Rufus Jameson, 21 of Cleveland. ďI donít think itís that hard for America to fight Assad in Syria as well as Assadís mortal enemy, ISIS, at the same time, and half a dozen other countries, while blindfolded. Even Obama can beat Syria or whoever. Itís a walk in the park.Ē

ďAnd whoever it is weíre fighting, they probably deserve it. Nobody f-cks with America. Even if we start it,Ē continued Jameson.

ďAmericans are champions of freedom and democracy. We stand against genocide, unless itís genocide against ISIS or American Indians hundreds of years ago, then itís OK.Ē

ďAnd ISIS better sign the TTIP treaty too, damn it,Ē concluded Jameson. ďWeíre not letting them get out of that either.Ē
