    Still unable to actually address what is being written? It's okay to admit it, you know. I specifically addressed the same thing as YOUR OP. That is our material capabilities. We literally could blow anybody out of the water twice over and not flinch. If you think a small drop in our budget, and measures being taken to deal with a shortage of ships - WHILE WE STILL HAVE MORE RESOURCES THAN ANY OF OUR POTENTIAL ENEMIES COMBINED - means that we're weak, that's on you. It's being laughed at by anybody with common sense.

    Exactly. Bush's War was and is to this day a costly cockup. I can't think of a greater military blunder in my lifetime. Saying that was shortsighted is being kind.

    You are confusing what you'd like the militaries role to be with its actual role.

    Uhh, it's a significant factor in the current depletion of our military effectiveness, wouldn't you say?

    Are you going to stop talking about the ACA after November 2016?

    not to mention that most of them are unwilling to pay a wartime tax rate in order to fund the constant state of war that they demand.

    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."
