I initially would let the police see if in the end the sniper is just a mad man. Agatha Christie has already portraited one killer that killed many just to dissimulate the will of killing just one.

On that it could have political meaning or origin or relationship, it could prove be true, it is in Washington DC where the killings are taking place.

Respect policies of countries, it is clear that the governments in the countries try to follow (more or less) the interest of the country as they understand it ... that is typically misunderstood as the interest of the people of the ruling classes. This is valid over the world, I think.

The more interesting aspect of what I have here otherwise read is the estimate of 50 million US casualties for a widened war, that is, a technical evaluation.

One can well understand the military and intelligence in the US dragging their feet in following a mandated policiy of "strike first". Even with the awesome arsenal the US has, its army I have read recently be made of 1,600,000 men. To with this force reduce to wanted behaviour the day to day lives of 6 thousand millions of humans, giant numbers of them with non compatible views of personal rights, social organization and national stances, sounds like a goal not likely to be met. And military men love the goals be met.

So if even the US stays strong enough to implement such worldly policy of total supremacy, what without trying remains to be seen, it is clear that in the present cehckboard of the wills of the nations this is not going to be met without challenge as formidable as to the same US nationals soon starting to ask from heart or attrition if it is for this that they choose a ongoing government.
