Look, you just keep telling yourself China isn't a threat or a problem, nor Russia. They're our friends, and the military build-up underway is to help protect us from ourselves.
Also, I'm not scared of them, but I'm also not blind to them.

They are not our friends, never have been and likely never will be.
They are also in no way our equals militarily.
If you want to help protect us from ourselves, then get active, as our military budget is yearly being transformed from armament and personnel into social security and Medicare.
We are at risk in 20 years, when we will have about the same military capacity as Denmark, given our other needs.
