... by the way I admit I supported 2003 intervention in Iraq ... but I didn't believe WMD which the CIA, ehm, found :) I was still back in the US when they started to talk about Saddam's uranium from Africa or something, and CNN had been broadcasting this "info" in a loop ... now I see people don't want to even talk about 2003 Iraq (including those who'd been on the US side back then hahaha) but I still think the campaign was blitzkrieg in its best; the occupation of Iraq was a disaster, of course ...
something I'm going to tell my grandkid if I ever have one

The US military has triggered a massive surge of its wartime sealift ships

so let's wait and see how "massive" it is in reality I mean how many of the reactivated ships sail
The US military ran the largest stress test of its sealift fleet in years. It’s in big trouble.

The propositioned force needs to be up-graded or better yet replaced. Many of the pre-positioned ships that are at Diego Garcia today were there when I was stationed there from July '85 to July '86....:confused:

Trump just tweeted that the US "just spent" $2 trillion on military equipment.

Does anyone know what he is referring to? The military budget of the last 3 years? Or some kind of calculation of the value of military platform stock.
