Just in case anyone missed it, this is exactly the type of military adventurism that creeps up when you cut your own forces too much.
We can attribute this directly to Barack Obama’s failure as president, and the Republicans who let him get away with gutting our military.
We’re going to war, and I’m not talking about nations that don’t have nukes here.
The average U. S. Citizen doesn’t have a clue.
Yep it will happen, sooner rather than later with liberals in charge.
One of many ignored reasons why we can’t afford to stop working while we give them everything. We need to work to save all our lives.
Agreed. No one has a clue. I don't think even our own military and clandestine services understand the growing threat. Everyone keeps asking what the October "surprise" is. This is it. The US will be facing down Iran and/or Russia. The voters will go for the current CiC, as they always do. Obama's little stunt with usurping Congress about immigration matters will be lost in the threat of a nuclear exchange.
Another clue that most Citizens don't get is that we are NOT the only super-power. Russia still has enough nuclear warheads to blow this planet apart. I have never understood why just because we have more warships and better equipped military, that we are supposedly safe and cut back. Hell, we can barely maintain those barbarians in Aftganiscrap.
Add Pakistan, India, France, Britain, somewhat China to the mix, and we are the only super-power? Really? Just how many nukes does it take to destroy the economy of a nation and bring commerce to a screeching halt? 1 in DC? 2 on separate coasts? 3 or 5 spread out around the US? And what about Iran or the Norks selling dirty bombs to our enemies?
On the up side - our Tridents that nobody knows where and when they are with their nuclear warheads give me a warm fuzzy feeling...haha. To remind you, if a nuke were to go off on American soil, it has a radioactive signature as to where it was built - even from Iran.
Those patriotic people work their butts off to analyze every ounce of data, but sometimes they do miss stuff, and sometimes the upper echelon looks away according to their own careers and CiC policies. Look how long it took them to find bin Laden, but I don't think that was political for the most part...just a matter of one man hiding in an area we had little access to.
Think about how long it took to find the "Unabomber" right here in the States. Anyone can hide if they go far enough underground.
