The way this assclown is gutting it? I thought he was stupid but retard is more like it.
While we’re “pivoting” how about, bringing back US industry too?
Just a thought. We cannot protect against a country, if we send our industry to the country.
You may recall that a few hours before Obama’s last state of the union address the Russians expressed their opinion of the Asia pivot by flying a couple long range bombers, capable of firing nuclear missiles, around our bases at Guam. Bill Gertz reported that they were, in fact, nuclear armed at the time.
Of course, a couple months later our military responded with a little one-upmanship in the form of six Los Angeles class fast attack submarines and one Ohio class ballistic missile sub spending a little time together at Apra Harbor on Guam. Who knows what was deployed at Anderson Air Force base at the time. They have hosted B-1’s, B-2’s, B-52’s, and F-22’s at various times.
