    We are being attacked, daily! China is attacking our computer systems, our financial system and is pushing the buttons of our allies by sailing its ships thru their waters. North Korea has been threatening to nuke the USA for decades, and is slowly gaining the capability to do so. They are also hacking our systems and slowing them down. They have kidnaped American Citizens from inside China and S.Korea. Russia is holding on to a spy who has leaked information that could be damaging the US National Security. We still are not certain what information he may have turned over to the Russians in order to let him stay in their country. Russia is also known to place spies within our country to gather information. They still have a LOT more nuked then we do and still have them pointed at us. None of these things are things I am just imagining. We are attacked every day!!! The only reason these attacks are not more serious then they are is because we have forward operating locations that allow us to strike them before they can strike us militarily. Without them, there would be no deterent.


    Are you a grunt or are you a pog?
    Not going to discuss my military credentials. Especially with everything that is going on.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Thank the republicans with their lips on the dicks of business owners for conning Clintin into signing a trade treaty with China. What the **** did they think China was going to do with all that tax revenue from outsourced businesses? Did they think China was going to spend that tax revenue on the poor? Did they think China was going to cure aids in Africa?**** no.China will do what every other country that has the finances to do so, they will increase their military might.

    North Korea has been threatening to nuke the USA for decades, and is slowly gaining the capability to do so.

    Which is the result of our interference in WWII and splitting up a country.
    Russia is holding on to a spy who has leaked information that could be damaging the US National Security. We still are not certain what information he may have turned over to the Russians in order to let him stay in their country.
    You mean the guy who revealed that piece of **** lower dirt cock sucking traitors in office are spying on the American people?

    Russia is also known to place spies within our country to gather information.
    We are doing the same to them.

    They still have a LOT more nuked then we do and still have them pointed at us.
    I am pretty sure we have nukes pointed at them.

    Yes keep spewing the neocon globalist/internationalist lie that we need to keep interfering with everyone elses business.

    So you are a pog.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Whether or not someone does or doesn't invades our "allies" does not prevent another country from invading or attacking our country.

    The same goes with providing equipment to our allies, it helps us increasing to strenght of our allies so they do not rely on us in and acual wartime situation.
    We do not have to defend them.This is what neocons and internationalists/globalists don't understand.

    It is espesialy important to have troops in Korea, to detire Nourth Korea, and in Japan to detire CHina from invading Japan.
    I could care less if China invades Japan or if North Korea invades South Korea.

    Actually, signing China into a trade agreeming and getting them involved in the international economy has probably done a lot to at least delay China's militaristic actions to get back at Japan after WW2. The Chinese are still very dependent on the international economy to grow itself militarily. The danger is, if China ever becomes anything like the US which it will in probably 20 years. Once it commands a good portion of the international economy, it can start pulling economic strings like we have been doing for the last 100 years to get what they want. The US is fairly benign in comparison to what China would be in our shoes. China would quickly invade Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and the Philippines. Then use those locations as forward operationg locations to expand further. Right now china is, for the most part, locked in by Taiwan. The minute they get a substantial Navy, they will command the Pacific.


    Which is the result of our interference in WWII and splitting up a country.
    Why did we split up the country? AHHH!! Because of liberalist anti-war who continually protested the war. The politicians wanted to get re-elected, so instead of pushing the Chinese and the N.Koreans all the way back to the Chinese boarder, we stopped at the 38th parallel and left millions of Koreans at the hands of a dictator that to this day cares more about his imported liquor then feeding them. That debacle was entirely our fault. Not because we got involved, but because we did not have the resolve to finish the fight.

    You mean the guy who revealed that piece of **** lower dirt cock sucking traitors in office are spying on the American people?
    Ah.. the tin foil pointy headed conspiracy theory that people have that the US govt cares about their boring mundane life. It certainly makes some really insane boring people feel important. Some people just are not complete unless some kind of government conspiracy is going on that makes them feel special because their lives are so boring and purposeless, government conspiracies gives them purpose. What other reason would there be for drinking beers and shooting at stuff in the woods.. playing soldier and screaming MERICA!!!

    We are doing the same to them.
    And they would be doing it to us even if we were not doing it to them.

    I am pretty sure we have nukes pointed at them.
    Of course, the difference is that people like you would be ok with them having nukes pointed at us while we destroy all of ours.


    Yes keep spewing the neocon globalist/internationalist lie that we need to keep interfering with everyone elses business.
    And you keep spewing idealist garbage strait from a Disney movie. The only difference between you and Barney is your not a purple dinosaur.

    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.

    If that is what the US citizenry wants, I will definitely get out of the military and move to another country. I don't want to be part of the United States of France.

    yep, and if we halved the US military budget, you would have to hire homeless people to work for it.

    $1 Trillion more per year than we spend on welfare and social programs.

    Like all government programs, there is a tremendous amount of waste that could be eliminated.


    At least defense is a valid Constitutional function though....
