The first part is right, but if Trump puts the hammer down like Regan did, it will turn around much faster than you think.

I went in under Carter, and it took less than a year to turn it around when Ronnie took over. But I think he took it much more serious than anyone could imagine.

To say that the military was ill prepared in 1977 is an understatement.

It was like night and day after Regan came in.

It goes against ALL common sense!

Well, it's not like America is under danger of being attacked even with a buffoon like Trump in charge. We're always the aggressors. We could blow the planet up several times over and the enemies we have created are third world nations without naval or long range air power.

You ever heard of ISIS? Al Qaeda? They teach attacking the US as a religious imperative. How about North Korea, soon to be joined by Iran, nuclear armed dictatorships dedicated to death to America?

How about Syria? Russian military personnel are stationed in Syria supporting their client state. The US military has to be ready to confront the Russian air power. Don't we owe our military the very best in technology to accomplish that?

Liberals are anti-war. And they are anti-military preparedness. They also cannot tell the difference between an aggressor nation and a defending nation. And most of them are ready with their "bug out" bags to head for Canada, if the SHTF.

My opinion, people, so don't any of you anti-military badasses get your panties in a knot.
