We're NUMBER 2!

 via India Today

China has the strongest military force in the world while India stands at number four, according to a study released on Sunday by defence website Military Direct.

"The USA, despite their enormous military budgets, comes in 2nd place with 74 points, followed by Russia with 69, India at 61 and then France with 58. The UK just about makes the Top 10, coming in 9th place with a score of 43," said the study.


When they finally lay the blame for our future ass kicking we get from the Chinese historians will point to...

*  Rumsfeld's stupid obsession with fighting the war on terror and not balancing the needs of the present with the needs of the future.

*  Bush's batshit stupid idea of trying to rebuild Iraq into a democracy instead of keeping the operation tight and low key with a 100% focus on terrorism.

*  General's that did as their political masters demanded and focused on the false threat to the US vs the real threat from China.

*  The news media that was so fired up about removing Trump that they ignored the damage being done by China.

The list really goes on.

One thing that is eye opening and obvious to all readers here.  We spend lavishly and get little return on our investment.

The Pentagon will push for budget increases for modernization.

I personally hope that Congress Critters will tell them to pound sand.  They're a player in the situation we find ourselves in today.  They MUST DO BETTER!
