This is a question that has been bugging me for a while? What should US does if a hostile country attacks US, then after the war broke out. The enemy call for a peace and accept to pay a large amount of money based on enemy calculation of damage cost by its forces? How should US react? Is it necessary to go to war and change the regime in the hostile country or it will be enough to accept the large sum of money as compensation and stop the war? This situation can be said for any regional power country such as France, India, Brazil, Turkey, Israel and so on. What is their reaction toward such a aggressive act?

Cartago delenda est! Now that has a nice ring to it and actually is the only way to assert the horrors of war. Everything else turn this form of comunal violence into a game and essentially generates its perpetuation.

What country would attack the U.S.? I doubt any one would try. More likely is that terrorist organizations attempt to attack the U.S. again.

I think Harburs is thinking more on the lines of a Mouse That Roared scenario. I don't think it would work out so happily now. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mouse_That_Roared

Don't worry, the US will declare war on any country that dares challange it on its own soil.... unless it was Israel. In that case Congress will demand the president apologise to Israel and compensate it for the losses caused by the US and will investigate into what made the US irritate Israel so much that it attacked it.

Not likely. One must transvass a large body of water, which is controlled by the U.S navy.

I am not exactly concern about if no one dares I am asking for possibility. No one on right state of mind attack US, but what if someone does? The attack doesn't mean a ground invasion. It can be done by airplanes, missile or any other possible way. Beside the country under attack can be any regional power not necessarily US. Take it if France, Turkey, India, Spain or Brazil be under the attack.

Don't be too sure.  With the kind of  sophisticated  arms supply that the U.S is blessing its "non-NATO  ally" with, the day is not far off when the news paper headlines scream " PAKISTAN DECLARES WAR ON U.S"  in which case  the U.S. would  only double its supplies claiming that they are required for countering the Al quaida and Taliban threat  and loss of  lives in the U.S. is the price that  the gullible American has to pay  to   save the world from terrorism.

I dont think this situvation is likely, after all Pakistan are slaves of the United States, the reason to cite this is the way United States went into Pakistan to Kill BIN LADEN, But yest it is not far some terrorist outfit sponsered by Pakistan Government are likely to attack United States and that way they are vulnerable.
 
Why are we talking about attack only on United States, why cant there be a debate about Agression on Countries by the United States as well and damages that they have to pay for ruining the nation.
While conceding they are dolling out more than compensation out of their treasury(poor U.S citizen pocket) but there must some kind of penality on any country that takes up arms except for defending their own borders.

There was a joke here: let's declare war on the USA! Then they will have to invade us and we will be better!
* we were at war with the USA; they did not invaded us, the soviets did.
** others have tried it; it did not worked.

I would like to put it on record the results of the last Assembly Election held in Assam  and the congress emerged as the winner. So imperialism is a out  this context, While I concede to the fact that North East was a neglected territory within the sub continient, ULFA is the by product of perception of people over governance and the anger is understandable.
 
I would like to state that for some time Assom Gana Parashid (Regional Party from Assom) led by Prafulla Kumar Mahanto(Student Leader) was in power but he couldnt do anything to bring these misguided youths into main stream.
 
From the postive side of it, there is a back room negotiation going on and we would see some outcome in a short while.
There is no denying of the fact that ULFA is an issue that New Delhi has to deal with. When I am saying Imperialsim as out of context as Assam is the integral part of India and the Government in the past and the present has been trying to resolve this problem through dialogue so the question of imperialsim here.

Another  attempt at Doctoring truth.  Humour becomes contemptible when truth is  distorted. It  becomes a subject of ridicule when it is  ill timed.
 
To equate  terrorism with  freedom struggle  shows a distorted mindset which has least respect for historic truths and can  best be  viewed as an attempt to  mislead   the gullible readers.
 
Much water has flowed down the Ganges since  an unilateral ceasefire has been  declared by the ULFA signed by Arabinda Rajkhowa himself accepting the untenablility of  the demand for sovergnity and  accepting the Govt of India's demands for unconditional talks.

Hmm, apparently it is OK to distort any and all things if it can be employed to bash the US but it's "no go" when the tables are turned. As for your purported eruditeness, you will excuse me if I conclude that Pran Chopra has a far more realistic view on "Indian Elections".

Nobody will question the views of Pran chopra ,he is cent percent right but the fact that you are talking about Imperilism is not true. Yes with fractured mandate with low voting has caused considerable problem in getting bills passed,  this is happening election after elections and government is unable to take major decision.

The last decisive victory that people gave was for Narashima Rao Government that happened becoz of the assasination of  Rajeev Gandhi as such what Mr.Pran chopras statement is very valid.

The country that will attack US is El Dorado. Their major export product is cocaine and they have stolen Battlestar Galactica's weapons like seriously. Radars, patrols, forward operating carriers? Your doubt that?
