Name The Country
I read somewhere once that all wars are caused by undefended wealth. The following
is from the newsletter of Doctors
for Disaster Preparedness. I'm sure that different readers will
see opposite messages, but it's stimulating for thought either way.
Which country has 709,000 active duty service personnel, 293,000 reserve troops,
8 standing Army divisions, 20 Air Force and Navy Wings with 2,000 combat aircraft,
232 strategic bombers, 13 strategic ballistic missile submarines, 500 ICBMs
with 1,950 warheads, 4 aircraft carriers, and 121 surface combat ships and submarines?
(Hint: It isn't Russia, China, or Britain.)
This superpower no longer exists. These are the American forces that have
disappeared since the current Administration came to power in 1993. Meanwhile,
two squadrons of the latest Russian SS-27 missiles have recently been deployed,
and China's expansion of strategic power continues unabated.
