The US Military could not pull off another Desert Shield if it had to, today. We do not have nearly the military we used to. Hell the majority of
our combat aircraft are 20 years old.
You have no idea what you're talking about. I was in a Navy squadron and our planes were built in the 60's, but they were still relevant, and had
the latest equipment. Most Navy planes were designed in the 60's and 70's but have undergone many modifications. The F-14 first flew in 1970, are
you saying the Tomcat is not still one of the top military planes? Even the F-18 was designed in the 70's and is going to replace everything.
I was in 'Desert Shield' and 'Desert Storm', I have no idea why you think it couldn't be done now. The US military is still the largest in the
world, regardless of cuts. You could cut it in half, and it would still be bigger than most of the worlds military.
