    U.S. Currently Fighting 74 Different Wars … That It Will Publicly Admit
    Posted on May 11, 2013 by WashingtonsBlog
    And Many More Covert Wars Without Congressional Oversight … Let Alone Public Knowledge
    Fire Dog Lake’s Kevin Gosztola notes:

    Linda J. Bilmes and Michael D. Intriligator, ask in a recent paper, “How many wars is the US fighting today?”

    Today US military operations are involved in scores of countries across all the five continents. The US military is the world’s largest landlord, with significant military facilities in nations around the world, and with a significant presence in Bahrain, Djibouti,Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Kyrgyzstan, in addition to long-established bases in Germany, Japan, South Korea, Italy, and the UK. Some of these are vast, such as the Al Udeid Air Force Base in Qatar, the forward headquarters of the United States Central Command, which has recently been expanded to accommodate up to 10,000 troops and 120 aircraft.

    A big difference.
    The Chinese have fewer capabilities but can deploy a massive army. Their pilots are better because they're career officers that are more expirienced.
    Their weapons systems are cheaper because they never have to pay much for their development.

    The Yellow Yell, and Hollow Fools Follow

    So is being a pawn of the snobbish, selfish, and unpatriotic cowards who despise our troops.
