Comment on Hillary, Trump, and War with Russia: The Goddamdest Stupid Idea I Have Ever Heard, and I Have Lived in Washington

Fred, again is right. It is goddamdest stupid idea. Ever. And, if one stops to give the matter some thought, our situation is far worse than suspected. First, going to war with Russia, generally does not end well for those at war with her. If we were to go to war with Russia, my prediction is that it is a 100% certainty that we would lose. And perhaps as badly as Iraq lost to us in the 1st Gulf war in 1991.
We here in the FUSA may have had at one time the best, most advanced weapons in the world. Not any more. Russian military hardware is the equal to what we have and in many areas their stuff is superior. We have believed our own propaganda about the quality of Russian equipment. Granted they have simply copied our stuff, but so what?
Why not let your rival spend his time and money to develop new stuff. Then wait to see how well it works. So when you want to upgrade your stuff, buy what you can from them or steal/spy the rest. The legacy equipment we have needs to be replaced or upgraded. The long years of our involvement in the "Stans" and the Middle East have left both our troops and stuff as worn out.

Our military as a whole is in rough shape and NOT fit to fight. We can not get a new weapons system out in the field in a timely manner. Nor are we getting our moneys worth. Just take a look at the JSF F-35. The most expensive plane ever and it still not ready for combat nor can it do what it is supposed to do. The Marine Corp does not know what it wants to be or how to do it. The Army, they are too busy with gender equality and rights and benefits for all the sexual perverts who are joining, as well as insuring that nothing offends Muslims. TPTB and the current administration have an ongoing purge of those officers who are warriors. Message is Lima Charlie, conform to the politically correct party line or your career is done for. Also we now have a much smaller military.

There is also the small matter that wars cost money. Should we go to war with Russia, where is the money going to come from to pay for it? This nation is bankrupt, with debt so large that is impossible for it to ever be paid off. So who is going to lend us the money? Other nations? Not a chance. From the American public? Problem with that is that most Americans are already too broke. Also there are not even working Americans to loot from to finance it. Nor do we have the manufacturing base we once did to make the planes, tanks, trucks, ships and guns we need for a conventional war. Remember too, all that stuff needs replacement parts to keep them working

Lastly a giant F--k You!, to TPTB and all the alphabet soup agencies, who are spying on me. I do NOT want a war with Russia. I so no reason for any American to die just so the politicians can hide their screw-ups or the corporate and bankers to use war to make more profits. Know this too, should we go to war with Russia, I will never believe the official story for war. I know that you all are liars. Every single last one of you are liars.

I almost forgot another reason why we WILL lose against Russia. We have no stomach for casualties. We have no resolve for the long haul. Once the body bags start coming back, or a battle is shown on the evening news, we will want to quit. Think Black Hawk Down. We don't like the idea that war is not like playing Call of Duty on our gaming system. Real war is too messy and nasty. (Amen, Fred and I were in Phnom Penh about the same time, but never met.)


  1. You and Fred and Ann Barnhardt are my gurus. Just give me an order. I have a small Mosin carbine and a new three-wheel street-grade electric scooter-chair. Still mobile infantry here, Brent.

  2. I also think war with Russia is one of the worst possible ideas I have ever heard of.
