Fareed Zakaria on our wasteful military spending. The F35 gets a mention.


Recommended Posts

Zakaria is right that we are far ahead of China in conventional military, but he only touches the overriding point when he discusses Chinese infrastructure.

China has given up on conventional hard warfare and moved to contemporary economic warfare. They control energy channels, rare earth element production, manufacturing, shipping. They are fighting a war with industry while we continue to fight it with gunpowder.

They will bury us unless we commandeer our war hawks on the both the left and the right and start spending money on industrial and commercial infrastructure.

If you listened to his show instead of just spouting your usual gasbaggery he he touched on exactly that point

If you wouldn't have had such a hard-on to jump on my shit like the little Vespa-riding bitch that you are, you would have noticed that in fact, I mentioned that.

I'm assuming you didn't actually listen to it.
