Thank God we quit wasting our money on some ineffective anti-missile program! All we needed to do was force some dumb-ass nuclear treaty through a lame duck Senate and “viola” peace in our time!
It is impossible to segregate your sarcasm from your ignorance.

We are on our own and if we don’t get a military brass with some bigger balls, we are toast, as in nuclear toast or nuclear blackmail.
