    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Because you have a habit of reacting defensively when you don't need to. Think. Then post.

    Our force is broken and needs to be rebuilt. And the focus needs to be on near peer adviseries.

    Yes, it is about need.
    It does seem rather odd then that those obsolete aircraft and naval ships are not junked but sold to other countries that get another 10 to 20 serviceable years out of them. Do they just have better mechanics or could those who really want new toys be dragging their feet on repairs deliberately to make the stats look bad? In government, if you don't make a case for getting rid of something, you'll never get anything new. So if you keep the older planes and ships in really good working order then it's much harder to justify buying new ones.

    Different issue. That has nothing to to do with maintaining our readiness.

    Besides most other countries don’t have the ability to operate and maintain this equipment.
