American Defense Prepped to be Anesthetized

Reader comment on item: The Prophet's Heir
in response to reader comment: Toxic "woke" seeps into government

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 4, 2021 at 10:50

Already compromised for better than 12 years (the President Trump pause notwithstanding), the American military posture in the world no longer presents the threat level once thought sufficient to keep the enemies of peace from spreading the disease of hatred and ambitions of empire from exploding.
Let us replay the potential of Reader Dave's perception here and suppose another Saddam Hussein wanted to exploit the post-Iranian war scenario and re-enter Kuwait; or how about Houti-entrenchments south of Saudi Arabia. Does anyone see the American 46th Administration approaching a now enraged (exile of the UN) Iranian Islamic Regime and advise them to quit messing with Sunni political achievements?
An effective military is supposed to have teeth and expose them for sending a message; now it's like the Administration wants to send its troops to the dentist's chair for de-fanging ans the anesthesia is already being administered: what will the teeth look like when the patient is 'woke.' China has a front row seat from the observation deck.
