I’m afraid it will be worse than ludicrous. Now that obambi and Hagel the Henchman have decimated our armed forces (and, no, I am not suggesting we go to war over Ukraine), the saber we once could rattle is down to a tarnished handle and a 3” stub of blade. And Vlad knows it!

It’s still true that to keep the peace, you must be prepared for war, “prepared” being the key term.

“the saber we once could rattle is down to a tarnished handle and a 3” stub of blade.”

Saber rattling doesn’t work for both sides. That’s why the countries owning nuclear weapons adopted the dissuasive strategy. It worked during the cold war era (1949-1990) and it’s working now. Only irresponsible leaders would brandish it. Who is ready to play Dr.Strangelove’s part?
