America is stretching, the Russians and Chinese are just waiting for the right moment to attack.
Only a fool would think that the US can continue on its rampage without a devastating response at some point. And the best time to stike is when your enemy is up to its armpits and bogged down in regional conflicts that it cannot extricate itself from.
A likely scenario would be a Russian backed attack on US forces in the Gulf and a Chinese attack on Taiwan. Again with its forces engaged elsewhere what can America do. But maybe thats the plan, maybe the crap for brains in the US want such a conflict to dig them out of that big financial black hole they have got themselves into. And maybe they dont give a toss for their own people or anyone else's
A massive missile attack on all US assets in the ME should do the trick. Public opinion in the US would scream pull out of the ME. The US Goverment would have two choices continue the fight or back down. And they will back down unless the madmen in charge are ready to have their people incinerated.

Well if we're not overextended, why all the hesistancy to send in more troops?
We can't even control a basically disarmed Iraq,
how in the World would we take on Iran who has a real army, a real air force, and real soldiers?
That's assuming Russsia or China doesn't intercede on their behalf.[/quot]
Yes, let us talk about the logistical nightmare that would be for Russia, and China whose militarys are both made primarily up of obsolete soviet union era weaponry...
Maybe that's what Russia and China actually want us to do. Overextend ourself like Hitler did, then stomp us into the sand.
Please, you have already managed to show us so much ignorance, there is no need to show us your ignorance on history.

Americans are delusional when it comes to US military might.
Many, many moons ago we were a superpower, but today we're a mere shadow of our former selves.
We have a lot of new technology, but that's it. Without our air superiority, we'd be doomed.
I love America too, but let's try to be realistic. We haven't had a real victory since WWII.
The best we've been able to do is carpet bomb people, and I don't consider that as winning.
