 The old hippy saying was, "if nobody showed up would there be a war." We're getting close to that now, again. The United States Army failed to recruit 60,000 new men for the first time. The fleet is a tiny shadow what it was and the Air Force has, surprisingly, priced itself out of business and there are no young men to die as cannon fodder anymore. They see that on UTube and frankly, they're not impressed.

The invasions go on and will go on but there is nobody left in the West prepared to resist. Wow, we get to see history repeat again.

In many ways it was an island nation off the coast of France and it's distaff colony that saw the birth and burst of the scientific method and science and more engineery than you could shake a stout stick at. What is coming is the what happens when the hardest working people in the world overrun science and technology.

The 21st century really isn't turning out at all like I hoped. Those hard working ones? Yeah, places just exactly like Venezuela that ripped their own guts out to spill on the ground. What do you think they will do to ours?

To use an old trite phrase, that is nonetheless true, " you are not interested in war, but that doesn't mean the war might not be interested in you ".

I was a Cold Warrior from long ago...
I served at the height of that war and saw the Victory...
I Served in the Air Force and have seen it at it's very peak of performance...Unfortunately I have been cursed to see what it has become...
Reminds me of a very old book that has some history we may well see repeated...
"Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?
Destruction and violence are before me;
there is strife, and conflict abounds.
Therefore the law is paralyzed,
and justice never prevails.
The wicked hem in the righteous,
so that justice is perverted."

The Answer:
“Look at the nations and watch—
and be utterly amazed.
For I am going to do something in your days
that you would not believe,
even if you were told.
I am raising up the Babylonians,
that ruthless and impetuous people,
who sweep across the whole earth
to seize dwellings not their own.
They are a feared and dreaded people;
they are a law to themselves
and promote their own honor."

I don't know how.
All of the ones that created high tech have shut it down
We're kind of left with FOXCONN and it won't last
We dropped the tools that we found in garages in Menlo Park
They're gone
It was a good run but its done
It will take about 50 years to pick up again
and a war on the lines of the great ones.
China is fragile, but so are we
The left has spent 60 years eliminating the Elon Musks.
I suspect the next war
will feature fractional orbital bombardment

I think that is almost a guarantee.
