  •  I agree, except, "invasion of (0+ / 0-)

    whole countries" takes a while. Small strike forces, okay, and we have lots of military bases in more places than we really need. OTOH, most places only have Marines guarding our diplomatic embassy. Embassy Marines aren't lawn decorations, they're well trained and tougher than most, but invading countries takes a lot more.

    Logistic support just for moving our initial troops into theater during WWII didn't happen instantly, and FDR had been preparing in background for years. Brittan had American equipment on hand already through "Lend Lease", and still it took a while.

    Religion: Treat it like your penis. Don't show it off in public, and don't shove it down your children's throats.
