    This is the best forum I've seen, but Nazi accusations are rampant on the internet. I've been accused on a few occasions! haha

    That is your own fault for having such a pro-Nazi avatar!

    Off this site is not what I was referring to I was speaking about inside Debate Politics. Calling Democrats or Republicans Nazis to is absurd. The use of it in this thread is a fine example of the absurdity that I am referring to.

    Well, that's your opinion. I am not so sure we are "six times as strong" as anyone....

    We also don't need weapons that are powerful enough to wipe out the Soviet Union. We already won that war.
    Oh, so once the cold war was over, never another thought about Russia eh? Sounds naive to me...

    and modern warfare is more likely to involve small arms and surgical strikes than it is to involve sophisticated weaponry and large naval vessels, especially if we've finally learned our lesson about not attempting nation building projects.
    Yeah? What if it's not? What happens if we downsize, who fills that vacuum? You just dismiss that anyone would want to take us down, until after the carnage has happened, then you ring your hands and say "how could this have happened"?

    How many wars in how many places should we be able to fight at the same time?

    If we are not going to have a navy with large vessels how will we get our forces and supplies to the places we fight? FedEx?

    I don't think the choices is endless number or zero. Instead, it is what do we need, and when is it enough?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    In arriving at that number, and force level is always going to be the rub....After all leaving it to people that don't recognize a threat until after an incident is dangerous.
