Behind the 8 Ball
This arrogant great nation has fallen behind big time. While the politicians were doing good for everyone but the nation... BLM tearing down statutes, arguing among themselves, putting money where it didn't need to go cutting the defense budget they cut off their nose to save their face. Now the end game is about to happen. Putin has a plan and now will most likely play it out. The Dems wanted socialism well they most likely will get it. However they will not be the ones in charge. Putin has hypersonic missiles, we don't . The USA is just in the beginning stages to develop. While the space cowboys were playing around the USA should have hired them or someone to advance the project. And we have NO defense system against Russian or Chinese hypersonic missiles. And yes they can be nuclear . We are dead in the water. In fact any US naval vessel is a sitting duck. Now Putin could do what we done to Japan to end the war. Sad state of affairs.
It does look pretty bleak but M.A.D. should still be a deterrent. They can get their nukes here faster, but not fast enough to prevent the launching of retaliatory ICBMs. Our surface ships are extremely vulnerable but we still have the best and hardest to find subs. Sadly, the cold war may have ended long ago, but our politicians chose to ignore that the arms race continued. Bob
Looks like overnight the Russians had a air force military base hit with a missile.
Every DEMOCRAT POTUS and congress in the last 50 years has cut defense spending and diverted the money into the welfare state. Biden is no different. Every GOP POTUS who followed cleaned up the mess.
Expecting nothing but hot air and a policy of appeasement toward Both Putin and China until the next presidential election. The media will provide cover and diversion.
Dont be surprised by an emboldened Kim Jong UN in the near future, especially if China invades Taiwan. Kim has already said USA is now weak.
Ironically, and totally ignored by our accommodating partisan media is an invasion far more threatening to USA than Putin at present and its happening along our Southern border. This particular invasion has been going on ever since Biden took the helm and has his administrations full cooperation.
Hey, but what matters is that we are using the proper pronouns, have multi-gender types in everything, especially at high levels, have diversification in everything way above the population levels, and Climate Change is all that really matters.
