On #8. Many WMD attacks on major cities. Those with the guns make the rules and in this case when major population centers get hit, even soccer moms will be screaming to drop some nukes...as long as an enemy can be identified, or that may not matter much. Take away the masses current way of life in a short period of time and you will see even pacifists getting mean. Taking out all perceived threats will be the call of the mobs. Poke a harmless little garden snake and even I twill coil up and bite.
