So I was listening to Geraldo this week on a radio station in Deep-Blue territory. He was saying that, in the past, the Soviets knew that a full-up nuke exchange meant the end of the world...more or less, and so the Soviets (and the US) did was was needed to avoid that nightmare.
He then extended that to ‘lil Kim, and said that ‘lil thinks the same as the Soviets and therefore we have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO FEAR FROM HIM - he knows if he hits us, we will clobber him. So no need for missile defense.
He then talked about how much money we’re going to be saving by leaving Iraq and Afghanistan...and how TERRIBLE it would be squander those savings on new, expensive, military programs (like missile defense). He then said that the defense contractors are SALIVATING at the thought of all of these new programs starting up and implied (or said, don’t remember) how much he HATES our defense companies.
In other words, he has more fear and hatred of our defense contractors making money than he does of North Korea taking out US cities.
He likely speaks for most Democrat leaders. It is incredibly difficult for conservatives to understand just how much they HATE the military and large defense programs...but they showed the same thing through most of the Cold War...at least starting at Vietnam. There is no other conclusion...they wanted us to LOSE the Cold War, as they simply would not support ANYTHING that could have helped us win - luckily Reagan was able to hold them back, but it was not easy, and it meant that he had to let the rest of their agenda continue to progress (i.e., more welfare, more spending on “education”, housing, etc.).
Considering all of that, there is only ONE THING that could convince Geraldo, and thus most other Democrat leaders, that we live in a dangerous world: And that would be deaths of HUGE NUMBERS OF AMERICANS. I have friends on the West Coast...but it looks like the Dems are giving the NK’s no choice but to strike, so I just hope that they strike a Blue City (or state). They voted for this, and they can deal with the consequences.
You were intentionally listening to Geraldo. Did you lose a bet?
My post about the strength of their army brings up another point, “Can America really fight a great war?” The liberals have weaken the mindset of our youth and decimated the military. I serious doubt we can fight a Korean scale war especially with our current president at the helm.
Everything shifted to house-to-house fighting and drones. The number of Americans with backbone is sadly depleted. Heck, a small child making a gun shape with his/her hands gets suspended and force counseling. No one fights for their principles, what happens if this thing goes south.
Their missiles are aimed at Texas! Hah!
