I'm going to read you some possible military situations the U.S. might face in the next ten years. (HAND CARD BB)
Some people feel these situations are certain to happen (think of these as point 7 on the scale), others think these situations won't happen at all (think of these as point 1 on the scale). And of course some people have opinions somewhere in between. For each of these possible military situations, please give me your best guess as to how likely it is to happen. For example, an all-out atomic war. Where would you put the likelihood of an all-out atomic war during the next ten years? (Would you say 7--it is certain to happen, 1--it won't happen at all, or something in between?)
