    With all respect Hare... do you work for the Department of Defence? that you seem to have all this knowledge of what is necessary and what it's not?

    Just assumptions based on common sense.

    Wait did someone just question our military might as if though there are actually countries that compare?

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Complacency is a dangerous strategy. There's no assurance that today's advantages won't be wiped out by some breakthrough. While a risk-free goal is not realistic, investments in defensive and offensive capabilities can mitigate risk and they can deter would-be enemies. A comprehensive approach that effectively deters conflict and its associated human and financial costs is a good national security investment.

    Agree, mind you I'm speaking in strictly hypothetical terms.

    No, I suggest that we rely on the current situation. We have thousands of weapons and they are still struggling to build one. So, in a fight, we probably would win.

    Ah, you say, but what if they really have thousands of weapons? Won't we need this missile shield that still hasn't been able to work after 20 some years and hundreds of billions?

    We are hardly defenseless and this is just another boondoggle to make a few people rich.

    let Iran and NK do all the weapons research necessary... while we wait crossed arms?
