GS , I feel like one of the rare Germans that wanted their own nation to get their butt totally kicked when Hitler came to power , because he knew that a good ass kicking would be the only way to end the madness and restore Germany to the people ( eventually ) . If the US thinks it can win a war against Russia and China ( China is not our friend , and will side with Russia if it goes down ) , we are arrogant beyond belief . We cant win against people with no Navy , no Air Force , etc . We have not won a war sense 1945 VJ day . This country has never lost a Constitutionally declared war , on the other hand , we have never won an undeclared war long term. I would not count on our European ” allies ” . From Vietnam to today , I have serious doubts that we have the will to achieve victory of any kind , especially when it starts to effect everybody as a whole , such as a draft and the horrendous losses .
