Have you ever read Twilight's Last Gleaming, by John Michael Greer? It is a fictional account of what a colossal military defeat might look like. Sobering. Like everything else in this society, there seems an obsession with technology for the sake of technology, in the military case most exemplified by the F35 and our carrier fleet, as if having the biggest most expensive thing is some measure of quality or usefulness. Greer defines hubris as the over-weaning confidence of the doomed. Our military feels like it is "resting on it's laurels" insofar as we spend so much more money on military must mean we are necessarily superior.

And what with the DOD connection to the covid jabs, and their jab mandates, one wonders if the leadership of the American military is actually invested in knee-capping America.
