[On the recent Russia vs. Georgia conflict]
I really don't know enough about the conflict to have an opinion, so I have nothing to say on this issue. As for the USA's military might, I think that history shows us as the greatest Army in the world since we've kicked everyone's ass in almost every war. And before you bring up Vietnam, that war wasn't lost because of our military, it was because of politics. We had won militarily, but our leaders were determined to "contain" communism rather than defeat it (mostly because alot of U.S. Politicians were communist sympathisers
which is why they wouldn't allow us to go up there in the north and take out the enemy, instead, we were forced to sit back and play shooting gallery which cost us alot of men up until the North Vietnamese signed a peace treaty with us which they later violated. But other than that, take a look at the Revolutionary War, the Mexican War, the Spanish American War, World War I and II, Operation Desert Storm, and Operation Iraqi Freedom and you can see that we've crushed our opponents nearly everytime we've fought. Not to mention that in both Iraq Wars, the U.S. has sent in the most soldiers to fight and have less vacation time than other soldiers. Another thing that makes us superior is our commitment because our European Allies fought until they got tired and then pulled out, but we're still in there fighting. The only other nations that would come close to us militarily are the British and the Israelis, both of which have advanced equipment and deadly foot soldiers. We're also the most advanced in case no one has noticed since we're capable of flying a missile through Ahmedinajad's bathroom vent and scoring a bullseye. And does any other nation have a space weapons program?
