    Long story short with no real rivals the military begin to get complaint and began to spend billion of dollars on high tech pet projects that have basically all failed. So thier complacency and lack of anything to do makes them a trillion dollar liability

    Conventional war? Hell, the US has spent millions of dollars on ICBMs and Nukes. I say if another "conventional war" comes up, lets see a little of what the taxpayer has been getting for his or her money over the last 70 or so years.

    The rapid decline in physical standards alone is enough to ensure a defeat against a nation like Russia.

    The US has not won a major war since WW2 – and will not win the next one..

    I believe the US is still the most prepared military organization for major conventional wars, with China is playing catch up with them. Just look at years of conflicts where the US is involved.

    Only thing is, their air superiority doctrine need a lot of tweaks, now the stealth is (purportedly) not so stealth anymore.

    If the navy wants to waste massive amounts of money why not bring back a few of the Iowa class battleships or build a few of the Montana class battleships that were going to be built.

    As history states it’s actually quite the opposite. Conventional ware fare is where the U.S excels

    How stupid are you. The US is the most experienced and most prepared fighting force on this planet. Hands down and not even close. Past, Present, and Future. With that said, there is no winners in war in this day and age.

    Because the American nation is on peace footing, not on war footing. Americans are going on vacations, going to parties, buying homes, making love. But Russian shit trolls should make no mistake. When America goes on total war footing like in 1941, this Russian troll community will see America they have never seen before. It's the American industry that will decide the outcome of the war. This industry will be converted to war footing within months.

    Right, they need more gays and women in their ranks… However, nuclear power was never weaponized – it was a WW2 PsyOp – and too beneficial for the powers that shouldn't be, to not keep going…

    Honestly in my opinion instead of the Zumwallt-class the US navy should have should have just asked the Swedish navy if they could buy some Visby-class stealth corvettes wich are pretty damn good.(of course that’s just my bioused opinion)

    Is this a propaganda from Iran?

  • Reply Joshua Sanchez July 24, 2019 at 7:22 am

    I feel like a lot this is over blown. In the event of a conventional war the US would crush Russia and still blockade China.

    This is why in some cases is better to produce your own weapons to someone who wants your money
