If so, then Brazil should be considered a "superpower."
Russia, the United States and China are superpowers as you no doubt are aware.
They have the weapons, the militaries and the nukes. They surpass any others in fighting fitness and readiness.

It's not so much they, these dependent Americans, want peace but they haven't the spirit to put up a good fight for our individual independence and personal freedoms.

means we weren't ready but we got ready with the right incentive, and so can the red Chinese.

In fact they are probably ready, just wanted to explain what that meant.

I would postulate that the one with a substance abuse problem is most likely the one that posted the senseless babble quoted above.

As I posted previously--and I will reiterate it now--it is highly doubtful that China could win a conventional war with even little Taiwan--even if the US declined to intervene.

If that is true--and I certainly think that it is--just how much hope would China have of winning a conventional war with the US?

And just where did you get the idea that China is equipped with "fighting fitness and readiness," anyway?

America, and its citizens, are a different country than we were in 1941.

I'm saying we cannot repeat the success of WW II.

Hell, half the nation has been hunkered in their houses afraid of dying from a dry cough.

I believe our country has purposefully developed the people we now have.

Easier to beat down and control.
