Anyone read his book?
It is ridiculous.
You're not out of touch.
It is unlikely to go that far.
I've read a bunch of these books, including "The Coming War With Japan," a book about how we're going to end up at war with Russia, etc.
All these authors share an obsession with historical analogies. The world doesn't work in the same manner that it used to. There's too much interdependency and communications are too easy for a democratic government to lead its country into an engagement against another major power so easily.
