    # A "forkbomb" is a computer algorithm that chases its tail, repeating its behaviors and replicating itself until it eventually crashes the system. U.S. foreign policy is an algorithm that chases its tail, repeating its behaviors and replicating itself until it eventually crashes the system.

# Forkwar is a special "graphically-enhanced" forkbomb implementation that illustrates forkbombing using the easy-to-understand U.S foreign policy example. Crash your system the patriotic way!
