Yes, of course that's true. I suggest it may be worth being circumspect in our discussions. I'm mostly worried about multiple troll armies invading this site and giving our mods a ton of grief.

Yeah, war is just an extension of regular politics but an exam of the impact of a war doesn't have to be political at all. grin

Quite right. The cause of war is political. But the effects of war is not necessarely.

This is an area fraught with peril in our community, and I want to thank everyone in this thread for staying on-topic and discussing the political consequences of such an act hypothetically. And doing so, I'm happy to add, with courtesy and respect.

Well done!

The long term result would be the U.S. repatriating a lot of the manufacturing it has outsourced to other countries. Raw materials are a more difficult problem.
