America was once just as "badass". We've got no chance of being on top of long considering the pile of sissies we have running things now.

Don't consider the veneer in Washington or what is shown in the news as representative of the core of this country or what our military is capable of.

You only need consider the following -

USN Ships

"more carriers than the world combined" in addition, there are 2 Nimitz class carriers under construction right now. The total number of global planes operational off carriers is 1250. Of that, 1000 are US. The US is now and has been for some time, the most powerful nation in the world and that is not going to change anytime soon. This isn't jingoistic, it is fact. However politically, we are deeply divided. That does not mean that as a people we are. The majority of this nation has always grouped around the middle not the fringes and it is the fringes that are dominating the political discussion. That can change rapidly in times of real crisis which we do not have that right now despite what is being thrown against the wall by both right & left.

And yet with all this power we are helpless without the will to back it up.
