We are coming into a very scary situation. We are stretching ourselves in the Middle East, using up money/resources, and possibly about to attack Iran. China could quite possibly eliminate us if we go to war with Iran. Do not underestimate China’s military. Their technology is getting closer to ours every day (and in some cases better, remember the submarine incident?). They also have 2 billion bodies to hold 2 billion guns. This is why we just need to come home from the Middle East, regroup, and stockpile for the future threat of China.
