    When Iraq found out why we don’t have healthcare and what America can do when we don’t have to worry about civilian casualties.

    The American military is a champion of logistics and how to wipe the floor with superior firepower and training paid for instead of making America a greater place to live with healthcare and well funded social support programs.

    Also see Operation Praying Mantis, or exhibit 6A of why you don’t touch our boats.

      Sometimes I wonder how america would do if it was ever invaded, they have a huge army and incredible power projection but since WW2 the US has had zero experience in any war where they had to face the consiquences for anything that happens. How well does the doctrine work when shock and awe is blowing up your own infastructure and you don’t have a pristine manufacturing base to fall back on.

        Unless Canada and/or Mexico want to fight us, we wouldn’t let anyone get close enough to touch ground in the lower 48. If a foothold was able to be gained, we would keep hitting supply lines and pushing from the land until they were off our lawn. The government would have to divide their attention trying to keep at least a few million rednecks from trying to “help out”, so that would hinder our defense efforts some. If they got to the point where the rednecks could get at them, we got room for a cemetery their kids can visit.

        If Canada and/or Mexico wants to fight, we have clearly done something especially terrible and I would wish them the best and take some solace in that we will rebuild them back better.

        Trying to invade America is like attacking a hornet’s nest dick first.
