You don't have to be a genius to see and read articles from every year since 9/11 the US military has been on high alert and hasn't calmed since, especially with a lot of occurring world affairs that just keep popping up like the game whack a mole.DEFCONWarningSystem wrote: ↑Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:56 pmCould you source that please?
Here is somewhat relevant articles linked to there website I have found hastefully,
Your Department of Defense is adapting, because we do not want to be dominant and at the same time irrelevant. And I offer this problem statement for what must guide our efforts: How do we maintain a safe and effective nuclear deterrent so these weapons are never used and our nonproliferation efforts can be recharged?
Second, how to maintain a decisive conventional force at the same time as that nuclear deterrent, one that will include space and cyberspace capability, to deter war or end it decisively if conflict occurs.
And third, we must at the same time maintain an irregular capability so we can fight across the spectrum of conflict.
This is our problem statement: how to maintain a safe and secure nuclear deterrent and maintain a decisive conventional force that can also fight irregular warfare.
"The Pentagon budget rode on the coat-tails of 9/11. Pretty much whatever they asked for was given, because we were at war,” says William Hartung of the New America Foundation, a Washington-based think tank. “In absolute terms, military spending is higher than it has been since world war two – it is higher than during the Korean war.”
Since taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama has changed little, extending America’s military commitment in Afghanistan before launching a phased withdrawal after the killing of Osama bin Laden on May 1 this year. He has so far only trimmed defence spending around the edges, and has kept many of the security measures put in place by Mr Bush.
Note, at work and the first things that come up on any search engines first page is crap about 9/11 and the day of 9/11. So give me a day and I can credit all my statements with sources. Thanks. Second last note, if people think nuclear attacks come in the forums of a nation with a leader and borders you have a serious problem with yourself. If anything Nuclear Terror is much greater threat to America atm then even DPRK. Do some reading, its really not hard at all to make Atomic "Suitcases" if your funded enough.
