then surely avoiding MAD needs to be part of your strategy for a win as a draw is not acceptable.
The massive KH-9 Hexagon spy satellite on display at the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum's Udvar-Hazy Center, after being declassified on Sept. 17, 2011. Longer than a school bus at 60 feet in length and weighing 30,000 pounds at launch, 20 KH-9 Hexagons were launched by the National Reconnaissance Office between 1971 and 1986.

The USA's new "fractionated" swarm satellites - in which groups of small wirelessly-linked modules in orbit will replace today's large spacecraft - will be able to scatter to avoid enemy attacks and then reform into operational clusters.

No i would not, and you can chuck all the white feathers you want at me. I would probably go to the Pub until it all blows over.

I was thinking
If WW3 erupted today between Russia and the US or our allies, I think I would enlist tomorrow. I am not a fan of the NWO or the slave wage system we got going here but we do have plenty of other things going for us. I dont really think any of that would matter anyways. It would be about survival. I would want the west to survive even if its evils did as well. Everyone I love is here.
I dont want to see the Russian, Chinese, or any other people suffer. I do want to see their governments fall though if it comes down to a them VS us situation.
I dont know. Just a thought. I would enlist and try to serve my country and by that I mean my people. I dont exactly like our government either.
I guess I would kill people if it meant my people would survive. I would try to be proficient at it and do my job well. Not for a pat on the head or for some song of glory. I would think to all my people the other guy couldnt kill from his grave.
Its a dark train of thought I know. I still think it though. God forgive me. I would fight in their world war and try to win by any means.

Of course. I like easy questions that only require an easy answer... Yes, absolutely and unequivocally the answer is yes, because that's what we do as Americans; we defend our way of life. Might not be viewed as the best way of life for some people out there, but only if you live here can you appreciate what we have and we still are the freest country in the world and I thank my lucky stars for that every day. I don't take that lightly.

I can't speak for you, but I do appreciate my freedoms and all it takes for me is to watch ten minutes of the world news every day to know I'm still living in the best place. I appreciate what I have and would willingly, gladly in fact, protect those values to give them back to my children and their children, etc. How long will it last? I have no idea, all we can do is instill the values that make this country that place where people risk their lives and flock to in droves to come to. I wonder why that still holds true to this very day?
