    No we won't invade them trust me on that one if anything it will be the Russian who have over the past few weeks have quitley been moving units down from Kamchuk Pens. and the Chinese who have moved quite a number of units to the border.

    As for the ICBM's well they have basically have don't forget they are one of the largest Skud makers in the World who do you think Iraq and Iran got their Missile Tech from.

    Don't be an ass. I have all day to look **** up.
    During the late 1970s and the mid-1980s, the Iraqi armed forces underwent many changes in size, structure, arms supplies, hierarchy, deployment, and political character. Between 1980 and the summer of 1990 Saddam boosted the number of troops in the Iraqi military from 180,000 to 900,000, creating the fourth-largest army in the world. With mobilization, Iraq could have raised this to 2 million men under arms--fully 75% of all Iraqi men between ages 18 and 34. The number of tanks in the Iraqi military rose from 2,700 to 5,700 and artillery pieces went from 2,300 to 3,700.

    Doesn't matter if most of them surrendered in '91. And by 2003 they didn't have nearly that much. Anyway the point I haven't clearly communicated is that;

    Now that we invaded Iraq, for no real reason, we cannot respond to a real threat to our national security and that of our allies.
    “We must picture hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives with the deadly serious passions of envy, self-importance, and resentment.”

    What are you talking about?


    Regardless of the rhetoric We now have 14 permanent bases in that region from wich any number of threats can be addressed expanding US operational CC ability significantly.
    It appears we now have influence over just about everyone in that region. Check out a map sometime. It may not be boardwalk but its at least parkplace.

    I would not use the word "cannot". What happened to "hope and change"?


    STATE OF THE U.S. MILITARY RESERVE COMPONENTS

    Big changes are ahead. Expansion of the Reserve components, More Equipment, Better HR management, Leveraging of civilian skillsets for particular issues. etc.
    The Military Industrial Complex is all Eisenhower envisioned in his darkest nightmares.
    Thank you

    The same Sun Tzu who said that numbers alone confer no advantage. Numbers do not equate to dominating position. If that was the case, the Zulu would have bent the British to their will, not the other way around.

    So? One does not need to outnumber the enemy to win a battle. Nor does one need to take ground to deter an enemy from a fight.

    Voidwar's dumb argument of numbers mean something ignores how war is actually fought these days.

    Because, unltimately, all disagreements are resolved through force, or the credible threat thereof.

    One more time.

    Always come from a position of strength. This submissive nonsense is just that.
