The Robots are coming (Page 9)
chronology: A little creepy ghost is that for the first time the U.S.A. has become vulnerable to blockade. This has never been possible in the past due to simple geography and logistics. The first occasion America began to become vulnerable was with the invention of the airplane. But even then no nation could fly the distances to and from the U.S. to attack America, unless they were flying suicide missions. It became vital for U.S. Strategic defence to keep enemy air bases as far from the U.S. as possible. The closest anyone came to a blockade of America in modern times was Germany in WW2. Uboats stalked America river entrences and Ports attacking shipping. The American Media kept this out of the news, but it was a creepy situation. Ask folks in North Carolina about family stories of families being knocked out of their beds by the force of explosions from torpedoes striking American ships. ICBMs made it possible for nations to threaten the U.S. with mass destruction. But drones, lying permanently around the U.S. have made it possible to hedge America in for the first time in modern history. This is why the U.S. has to win the Drone War, otherwise they could be 'fenced in' with no air travel, trade, or anything in and out of the U.S. It would be a 'wall' so to speak, more effective than anything Mr Trump could build.
chronology: oh my goodness, Sandra, do you have no interest at all in the sacrifices and efforts of Americans in upholding democracy and freedom? look up 'Torpedo Alley' North Carolina on the web and you will see how the fine folks in that great State spent a lot of time burieing brave American sailors and clearing up after Uboat attacks.
For goodness sake, never take for granted the sacrifices of Americans in the past in keeping the world free.
Sandra1957: sir, I told you once before, and I will not say this again. My own father
was in the Army AirForce IN WW2 now please shut the hell up
chronology: Well tell your dad thankyou for his service to world freedom and justice. But frankly you are delusional. I cannot discuss anything further with you.

kittybobo34: I remember reading about the Uboat attacks, took us a while to get on our feet in that war.
briansmythe: Dont worry they wont be Late for the next one , Theres Pleanty of Drill sargents like Chronno around to Brain Wash people into The Milatry line
kittybobo34: they never see a war they dont want to get into an fight in, of course they aren't the ones enlisting.
chronology: brian, like I am tired of explaining to you, there were tens of thousands of U.S. Servicemen and women stuck on the boarder of Iraq from the liberation of Kuwait. Had not Mr Bush Liberated Iraq they would still be there now. United States Air Force Flights over Iraq amounted to 100.000 flight time when the U.S. liberated Iraq. 10.000. Iraqi's were dieing every year due to U.N. Sanctions, mostly old people and children. Grinding poverty was becoming entrenched in Iraq due to Sanctions. And you still think the U.S. was wrong to liberate that country. Also, name one war I have ever suggested the U.S. get involved in. Not one. The U.S. is doing a great job in Afghanistan at the moment, and we can only hope they stay there. The U.S. Navy is doing a great peacekeeping job in the Gulf and Pacific, we can only hope they stay there.
Sure, the U.S. could have just cut and run. But that would have left millions of people who depended on American Airforce flights to protect them at the mercy of a very hateful Government at that time.
As ever brian you just twist facts to suit your America hating agenda. And I challenge you again to name one war I have suggested America get involved in. And yes, I still praise Mr Bush and American servicemen and women for their great service to the world liberating Iraq.
briansmythe: Nth Korea V USA = China V USA
Vietnam V USA = China V USA
Syria V USA = Iran and the rest V USA
Santions enforsed the USA = if you cant starve them into submission , Bombs away
Like how you leave out all the Millions of Innocent people who have been killed , Nah no need to remember them , There Just Calateral damage

chronology: U.N. Sanctions were imposed by the U.N. brian as usual you just duck and dive and go off on an anti American rant.
ghostgeek: No one's perfect but of the three great powers in the world today the U.S. is by far the best. Russian and China don't look half as appealing.
kittybobo34: Never the less, it would be allot easier to tell who the bad guys are if we quit trying to be the world cop. Let those countries fight their own battles and learn their own lessons.
