    We went all in on 'defense', the Europeans invested in social programs. Their population can get hungry, but they aren't very easy to radicalize - they learned their lesson after two world wars starting in such conditions.

     Meanwhile here in America we're bled white, with hundreds of thousands of troops who've done multiple tours of urban combat coming home to a wrecked economy and a GOP majority that wants to cut their benefits. That's crap, and it's got a lot of TNT mixed in with it, and it will blow up in our faces just like after Desert Storm.

    Yes, don't forget - Oklahoma City and the D.C. Sniper were products of just 38 days of ground combat. We've got guys who've been out 38 months.
