I'd suggest the 'war' is already underway and has been for some time. What is missing is the energy to abandon one's security of home, food and clothing and actually go to war; so we have weekend warriors who attend each others' events with the idea of causing trouble.
I saw a meme the other day that was apt: "False outrage- so hot right now", over a picture of city denizens from The Hunger Games.

I think the issue is that the sides can't organize into war parties. If I wanted to get a white army (think russia) pre-emptively organized just so when things start we aren't behind, how would I organize it without being infiltrated by the government?
The left has the exact same problem. So developing associations of militants is impossible. And those loose associations have to exist for some time peacefully before circumstances thrust them into war.
