I thought that our MIRV's were in Geo-stationary orbit around our targets. If the SHTF, they'll fall like a tonne of bricks from the sky. ETA to kill zone, less than 4 minutes.
Yessireebob! Sputnik, Yuri Gagarin... them danged Russkies dont know squat about them thar space technologies! Them danged Chinese have only changed their society from feudal/agrarian to the world's most productive manufacturer, despite political ill-will from every developed nation except Russia, in the space of 1/2 a century. WTF do they know about technology?
The Russian technology is inferior, as is the Chinese.
Perhaps you can explain how -3 + 2 = a positive number? You see, it comes down to that pesky figure that the USA has been releasing every year for decades called "The Trade Deficit". You know, that danged inconvenience of mathematics that the USA spends more on its imports than it earns from its exports: a lot more... every year.
We have the most money, the best everything, and the most of it
If you dont know that the least effective/profitable way to compete with another country is to actually fight them, read Sun Tzu (oops, a Chinese person... not that China could've possibly understood 1 of their own philosophers better than a Merkin, b/c with all that money y'all generate by spending more than you earn, it stands to reason that y'all get a much better education ). Then understand that deterance is only effective if its visible. I've no doubt that there are wild tech developments in places such as Area 51, but they aren't combat effective, b/c if they were, they'd be employed far more effectively as a disincentive to fight @all, ie by being known.
and we won't even let anyone know about it, it's that good.

I would hesitate to call Obama peaceful. He did decide to continue the pointless bloodsheds that are Aghanistan and Iraq. He hasn't made any move to fulfill his election campaign promis of removing the troops from Irag. Given that, he isn't as bad as Bush.
