Marines and China

Writes Wes Baker:

Lew,

I got a kick out of your PT post, US Marines Seize Small Island in preparation of taking on China.  What brain trust in the Pentagram thinks US forces could take on one Chinese Province, let alone the whole country.  We’ve gotten our imperial tails handed to us in Vietnam, Iraq 2 and Afghanistan.  Not exactly world powers.  Maybe our ‘generals’ are thinking China is closer to the Faulklands or Saddam (Gulf War I, Bush I’s catfight).

Don’t get me wrong, ‘we can drop us some bombs’.

What a bunch of infinitely spoiled (infinite budgets), feted (domestically) crooks the US military has become.  Add ‘myopic’ and downright ‘stupid’ to that string adjectives.
