ok, Wes. I’m not so sure when they shut down so many things like shipyards, you know they can’t just turn the switch back on when all the big equipments been auctioned off and very big important pieces like giant mills and lathes sold to China for pennies on the dollar in the 90’s We don’t have the ability to sustain a war effort from a production and maintenance standpoint. The technical expertise required to be effective with respect to manufacturing has retired and is dying off everyday. It’s a travesty. Our military isn’t what some think it is imo. What happens when one hypersonic missile can take out a carrier? Our enemies already can do it! I am a patriot and have tremendous respect for those who serve and served but politicians are involved and do stupid things like close shipyards. The talent that existed in some of those locations will not be assembled together again. It is nonexistent. I find it ironic how we won our Independence fighting the well funded redcoats and look at us now all teched out bankrupting ourselves for these expensive planes etc. Limited availability and tremendous maintenance requirements.... I dunno if I feel that great about the CURRENT state of our military, that’s for sure. Wes says the only thing worse than law breakers are law makers!
