PLAN TO FIGHT LIKE NO ONE IS COMING TO SAVE YOU

No one wants to talk about war until it comes.

Every individual in a democracy is personally responsible for the nation’s defense. At the national level, failing to plan for national defense – and failing to train and equip the totality of the nation’s available military manpower for the execution of that plan — is inexcusable. Preparation is relatively inexpensive; it also buys crucial time in an unforeseen emergency. The focus here is not on strategic deterrence nor civil preparedness, but on the tactical goal of area defense.

The challenge is political. No one wants to talk about war until it comes. This is why in America the draft has been such a dead letter. Military funding is a grab bag of service wish lists and not part of an integrated strategy.

America has her own unique issues with preparedness. On the one hand, she is blessed with oceans and (now, at least) peaceable neighbors, allowing a focus on things other than territorial defense. On the other, while a fair proportion of red-blooded American men and women already have a pick-up truck, some body armor, and a passably appropriate infantry rifle lying around the house, none of this lays a foundation for national military preparedness in any real sense (although some think it does). The better organized your population is, the more effective it will be when mobilized in the nation’s defense. Training and preparation are the materials from which the “moral construct” that is an army is built.

Somebody needs some younger Vets to give him a come to Jesus moment. This guy is supposed to be a patient advocate and can't deal with older people that may have mental issues? I'm sure the old Vet slapping his hand away really called for such a violent response including stomping on the guys neck and kicking him. This POS is not in jail and still employed after committing aggravated assault and elder abuse? It's good to be a member of the protected class.
