  •  Have you ever read about WWII? (0+ / 0-)

    Sure, we won it, after losing several battles until the military could learn from its mistakes and after the economy had geared up for war production. The reason the US didn't get invaded and lose is that there are oceans in the way.

    If WWII happened with the US at the same state of readiness that we're at right now, the German advance probably would have stopped at the Sitzkrieg, a few weeks after it began.

      Harbor.  France had fallen, North Africa was in German control, so two weeks isn't very realistic.

      Patriotism may be the last refuge of scoundrels, but religion is assuredly the first.
