    by golly we have a military that puts the rest of the world to shame....if they don't envy us, they can at least fear us!!!

    It's really sad.  Our priorities as a nation are so messed up, we spend billions and billions of dollars to protect ourselves from some nebulous threat (Sadaam's chemical weapons?) but can't protect our citizens from dying from gun violence, or because they lack health insurance.

    There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.

      That explicitly linked to the fact the military might was armor with a rotting carcass inside. Yeah, the Red Army was soon harvesting potatoes to make do and its nuclear blue water navy was radiating on the beaches of the Kola. The only real first line units appeared to be the missile force.

      We were certainly well on the way. Maybe in 2008 there was an alteration of course, but the idiot faction is still fighting over the helm.
