You are so far removed from an honest real world view of things or understanding geopolitical and military strategy that there is no point in even trying after this post.
I am in Australia and it was not that long ago that our neighbours Indonesia slaughtered, tortured, executed and committed genocide in East Timor. In fact I was alive and watched parts of it on TV. My country could have stopped it or at least intervened with military intervention and allied support but we sat idly by because of political reasons.
I was born and thankfully not raised in a socialist republic which was slowly becoming a brutal police state. Malnutrition and disappearances were rife. Our people rose up, we won over the military and eventually executed our leader and freed our country. I’ll let you figure out which nation that was.
I could go on and on and on… here is a list of current conflicts.
And of all those threats there is at least one that we know of that is claiming loud and clear it wants to take over America and the rest of the free world and enslave us all under their religious idealogical idea.
And that’s not even mentioning the other handful of world super powers that are not the friendliest toward democracies like ours.
For example do you have any idea what the Chinese would do to us if our countries and in particular the US did not spend as much as they do on their military and routinely complete offensive training missions across the globe? These are people who think it is normal to commit some of the most despicable crimes… FFS they don’t even respect their own animals, what on Earth do you think they would do to you? They eat the brains of live monkeys, keep bears locked in cages for their bear bile trade or their most recent despicable acts of growing, killing and testing genetically modified animals by the thousands in underground research labs.
Mate it was just the other day China was caught building military radar systems and deploying surface to air missiles on disputed Islands. N.Korea just threw up a military satellite and that was only a few weeks after testing rockets and claiming to have a hydrogen bomb.
And these guys are currenlty running full steam ahead towards AI. I can tell you if they get there first you can kiss your fortuitous hippy ass goodbye.
…so telling me our generations freedoms do not need protecting is both arrogant and ignorant.
I am not sure if you are winding me up or your just a fanatical lefty that believes peace, love and harmony is a given without people fighting for it and I dont care. I dislike governments as much as you do but I have a choice as do you and I choose to live under this one. End of the day the facts are the facts and while you sleep at night there are men and women protecting your borders and the skies above you but you can always opt out of that if you wish.
Goodbye and goodluck.
