Crisis civil wars require a fault line along religious, ethnic or
similar lines. The fact that people are angry at each other doesn't
mean that a civil war is about to break out. There is a major fault
line between Yanks and Latinos, and the expected new Mexican
Revolution is expected to spill over into the US.
It is too simple ... and of course - not quite correct.
A civil war - could have actually even more different reasons.
The simplest is - so called - "ideological".
(For example - Spain civil war)
Your (USA) civil war is perhaps also some kind of "ideological" too. (nothing to do with "religious or ethnic lines")
"Ideological" means that there are different views on same thing from two (or more) groups of people.
EACH country (exactly as EACH group of people) - could have it...
Simpler as this - it can not be...
it seems probable for America to be on the verge of a very bloody civil war, esp. if the economy completely tanks. the feel of the average Americans mood is angry and resentful at the government.
just forget to say something regarding your statement about "terrorism".
Personally, I think that Americans need not to be afraid about terrorism.
Namely, the biggest terrorist on the Planet IS - the United States of America.
I.E. even if this state terrorized own citizen as well - it mostly terrorized the rest of the world.

Actually it is correct, and not simple.
I believe you are from Austria. I can think of one of your famous citizens who did a pretty good job of terrorizing the world back in the 1930's and 40's.
The U.S. rebuilt the world after world war II and has done a great deal of good in this world and for this world. You have no basis for accusing the US of "terrorism". While religious zealots are strapping bombs on their bodies and killing small babies without that slightest guilt, US soldiers are dying protecting civilians. This has happened around the world for decades - because remember that even in times of peace, you always had military accidents that took the lives of the men and women who serve in the US military.
The US has it's faults, but your criticism defies reason.
