I'm sorry but I find it quite amusing that you are basically stating that you find your opinion more factual than Dr. Brennan's who actually did a study into this and spent time researching it, not to mention that he had access to military installations and such.
And your opinion that contradicts his would be backed up by what exactly?
Did you even graduate from college sir?
i dont care what your biased doctors opinions are and im not going to be dragged into a flame war. But i will say that the US has struggled against a bunch of stick throwing arabs whihc speaks for itself.
Anyway here are the facts, you do the Math.

Everything you stated in your last post is not new to me. I realise that these countries with huge armies are underfunded and undersupplied and there weaponary is rusting away. The matter of the fact is the US could not take on Europe, China, India, and Russia.
I was not talking about an invasion because i know the logistics are not their to put these troops on US Soil. I was disagreeing with what was written on that paper which i would call typical American arrogance.

You talk about conquer through destruction. The re-conquer or Reconquista has begun by CONSTRUCTION. Look at who is building your homes and roads. Chicanos! We keep breeding and reading and the land that was once ours will be ours again. You don't have to destroy a nation to occupy or take over. We will prove that assimilation and construction can reclaim lands once taken illegally. The 21st Century in America belongs to the Chicano. Learn Spanglish or suffer cultural suicide.

Gulf War 1. Iraq had the FOURTH LARGEST ARMY IN THE WORLD> They fell to OUR AIRFORCE in less then a week, in a matter of days we OVER killed -- which was the real reason we did not go INTO the country and kill Saddam. We where ordered there by a UN mandate, we where the backers of a UN operation to protect Kuwait.. and in the process our air force alone decimated the world 4th largest army, technologically and in numbers the most superior army in the entire Mid east and Eurasia region .. Saddam did not stand a chance.
CHINA: Largest standing army in the world. This is a fact. It is also a conscript army, it has 60's era weaponry, it lacks the budget of even the most mediocre western army...
India.. 3rd largest army, again, conscript poorly trained peasants with guns.
First off, people said the same thing about Germany before WWII .. and had Hitler been a better general or held off for another 5 years on attacking Russia, all of Europe would have fell.
First off the American armed forces has over 2 MILLION active and RESERVE forces....
We are the ONLY nation that reserves (sometimes France to) the right to use Nuclear weapons as an OFFENSIVE FIRST STRIKE WEAPON.. not even Russia has this policy.
I simply think people are putting to much stock in thinking 1 war loosing 3.7k men fighting in the desert will single handedly destroy us is a little... pathetic.
