With sound bites like "premptive defense" and "kinetic military action" it is getting harder and harder to take our "strategy" seriously. While
I am a firm believer in not holding back and striking without warning, our defender's sound like a preschooler fighting a bunch of preschoolers.
There's one thing I learned the hard way that I shall not soon forget that these 'professionals' should do well to consider. When you spend most of
your time trying to concieve of every way to defeat your enemy and then spend the rest convincing him you'll do it, they stop taking you seriously.
It's called many things, like "writing checks with your mouth your *** can't cash."
There was a legend in martial arts who went 23-0 in competition and due to a previous injury he would never throw his bad leg into a kick, except his
retirement match. It stunned the crowd, and it was a great way to finish the career, but what's the lesson?
Never let the enemy know anything, make him question what he does know, and if he doesn't question it make him pay for complacency as a bonus, not a
What's our strategy? We aren't revealing our technology but we are pretending we are stretched thin and unable to achieve victory. You ask for money
to fund your operations and cry when your budget is cut. Why is the defense budget not classfied, but minor things are? Is our military coaxing, or
coercing? Are thy incompetent?
So, there are two logical conclusions. We are truly broke, or we are saying "try me, I dare you", my question is, why? Neither answer is acceptable
as a US citizen and reluctant taxpayer.
