When one looks at the dynamics of the sophisticated military weapons that America brings to the battlefield, it is quite puzzling that after 12 years in Afghanistan, fighting a force that is anything but organized, and one that fights using weapons such as 'suicide bombers', improvised explosive bombs............. and one where most all military supply's are carried into battle by either human or donkey transportation, the 'grunts' themselves would not revolt. A rational general would refuse to continue, but alas the U.S. seems blessed with an unlimited supply of generals who achieved their rankings through social arrangements rather than military prowess. Only in a Banana Republic would this upside down reality exist. And to be fair, this "Alice In Wonderland" upside down reality has existed from Bush l until the now drug addled Usurper, 'homosexual closet queen', B.H. Obama ll. It is a fact that all persons crave attention and praise, and when in a position of power they tend to always choose subordinates who are many 'powers' below their own mental equal, and in the case of B.H. Obama ll, his over stated mental achievements, and false high IQ, make for appointments of military dimwits that would be found in any third world country.
Not one to just accentuate the negative, I give you this thought and proof that the U.S. military is a social club rather than a Patriotic association of Warriors. There are currently 20 U.S. aircraft carriers in service today with more on drawing boards to be funded. Former Defense Secretary, William Cohen, has said on several occasions that without "flattops" the U.S. has less voice and influence in world issues. But isn't it clearly logical that an aircraft carrier, the immense size of the current Gerald R. Ford-class of aircraft carriers in particular, besides being massively expensive to build, is nothing more than a 'sitting target' for any advanced nations guided missiles which can be easily programmed from an 'eye in the sky'? And for these two very reasons is it not logical that Russia and China have focused on subs instead? Isn't this proof that America is being led by old men who are social climbers rather than Patriotic Warriors? Isn't this proof positive that America is now a certified Banana Republic?
