Russian sympathy among military households has the Pentagon concerned...

From Voice Of America via Defense Aviation...
While most Americans still see Moscow as a key U.S. adversary, new polling suggests that view is changing, most notably among the households of military members.

The second annual Reagan National Defense Survey, completed in late October, found nearly half of armed services households questioned, 46%, said they viewed Russia as an ally.
Story here. 

Many non-conformist vets, retirees and active duty folks are probably doing as I am.  Looking at the real threat.  China.

Notice that we don't have results of a survey with regard to how China is viewed.

Ever wonder why?

Because the results would be overwhelming.  It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out who the big fight will be against.


It ain't Russia.

As a sidenote, I'm extremely proud.  They tried to simplify the rational of those being surveyed as simply reflecting messaging coming from the President.  I think they're wrong.    This is about so much more.

I think it's about trust.

The thing that should worry the Pentagon is that serving/former/retired are not buying what they're selling.  If that spreads to the general public then those flat budgets in the coming years will turn into cuts.
