Which World Military Power?

Take a look at these statistics and think about what they could mean in today's world:

709,000 Regular (active duty) Personnel.

293,000 Reserve Troops.

EIGHT Standing Army Divisions.

20 AIR FORCE and NAVY Air Wings with
    2,000 COMBAT AIRCRAFT 
    232 STRATEGIC BOMBERS.

19 Strategic Ballistic Missile SUBMARINES with
    3,114 NUCLEAR WARHEADS ON 232 MISSILES.
    500 ICBMs with 1,950 WARHEADS.

FOUR Aircraft Carriers
    121 Surface combat SHIPS and SUBMARINES
    Plus, all the support basesshipyardsand logistical assets needed to sustain such a naval force.

WHICH COUNTRY'S MILITARY MIGHT IS THIS?

RUSSIA? NO

CHINA? NO

GREAT BRITAIN? NO

FRANCE? WRONG AGAIN (That's a lot of cheese and wine.)

IRAQ? NO

MUST BE THE USA? STILL WRONG (sort of)

GIVE UP?

 

THESE ARE THE AMERICAN MILITARY FORCES THAT WERE ELIMINATED DURING THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION.

Their elimination was 100% SUPPORTED BY JOHN KERRY (These are the ones he bothered to show up to vote on)

Well, we won the cold war, and the only enemy we faced was the Conservative movement in the USA.  Why not get rid of the troops and equipment?
We had programs to fund, failures to reward and successes to punish right here in the good ol' USA.

Besides, the UN or NATO would back us up. Right?  
 Right?

Convene the UN subcommittee on frowning hard and saying harrumph!  The US has been attacked!

Get me another one of them "American Cowboys" for President, there's some respect to be taught - again.
