Barack Obama and his government (incl. SECDEF Robert Gates and Admiral Michael Mullen) wrongly believe that America will never again wage a conventional war. They wrongly believe that America will never fight China, NK, Iran, Syria nor Venezuela. My fellow critic of Obama, J David Patterson, reports that the opinion of the Obama government is that
“President Obama campaigned against what he called unneeded Cold War era weapon systems, and cancelled the F-22 – because there was no use for it against the Taliban and such. And no, of course, we’re not going to fight any conventional wars any more.”
The Obama Administration is wrong. America will wage many future conventional wars – against China, North Korea, Iran, Syria and Venezuela. All of these states are sworn enemies of the US.
