    No idea. Where's is their aircraft carrier at the moment?



    Er, no. Russia is not going to initiate WWIV (V?) over whether or not we dismantle Syria's IADs network and WMD facilities, any more than it did when Israel bombed the nuclear facility.
    Er, you think they'd just bluster and do nothing should US troops launch an incursion into Syria? I don't believe they would sit on their hands.

    Syria is ultimately NOT our responsibility.

    What exactly are we being polled about?
    Taking over Syria?
    Providing military support to some faction in Syria?
    Establishing a base for humanitarian activities?
    Some "peacekeeping" mission?
    To sell popcorn?
    I say none of the above to any of your suggestions.

    It isn't just a US problem. Here is the thing, this is why the doomsday sayers are full of crap every other nation is just as bad off if not worse than we are.

    I don't really think China is hurting so bad.

    Just How Big Is China? Bigger Than You Think - Forbes

    According to the latest research from the United Nations, China has further outpaced its competitors in world manufacturing, generating $2.9 trillion in output annually versus $2.43 trillion from the U.S., the world’s second-largest manufacturing economy.

    Over the last two years, China’s manufacturing sector has made strong gains, while the U.S. has been on Fed life support.

    “In 2011, China’s manufacturing output surged by 23% while manufacturing output in the U.S. only increased by 2.8%,” the American Enterprise Institute‘s Mark Perry said in his Carpe Diem blog on Friday. “That brought China’s manufacturing output last year to more than $2.9 trillion, which was almost half a trillion dollars (and 20%) more manufacturing output than the $2.43 trillion of manufacturing output that was produced in the U.S. last year.”

    Strategically removing (crippling) the u.s. (economically) would be worth it to them.
    It's like writing off a bad debt you can never collect anyway. They know we'll never be able to pay off those debts. It's all meaningless paper.

    I think we are still stronger in the military sense. That's why it's important IMO to not cut military spending. Our federal government is obligated to protect us and given all the turmoil that's going on in the world now, it would incredibly irresponsible to cut military spending IMO.

    If the only thing we used our military for was to protect us, that would be ok.
    Our federal government is partially responsible for "all the turmoil that's going on in the world now". We couldn't subdue iraq...we can't subdue afghanistan...vietnam...korea...etc..etc...
