We received this via e-mail from Mike G. in 2001:

NAME THIS COUNTRY: The following is a list of military assets. Can you name the country to which they are attributed?

1. 709,000 regular (active duty) service personnel

2. 293,000 reserve troops

3. Eight standing Army divisions

4. 20 Air Force and Navy air wings with 2,000 combat aircraft

5. 232 strategic bombers

6. 13 strategic ballistic missile submarines with 3,114 nuclear
    warheads on 232 missiles

7. 500 ICBMs with 1,950 warheads

8. Four aircraft carriers

9. 121 surface combat ships and submarines, plus all the support bases,     shipyards and logistical assets needed to sustain such a naval force.

Is this country:
  • Russia
  • China
  • France
  • Great Britain
  • North Korea
  • No idea

Well, don't feel too bad if you are unable to identify this global superpower because this is not really a country. These are the American Military Forces that have disappeared since the 1992 election of Bill Clinton and Al Gore.
Well, numbers and statistics can be read and interpreted in many fashions. However, we do remember the Clinton Administrations frightening and enthusiastic mission to cripple our military and security forces nationwide and abroad. Because of this, we have reaped what we have sown. The Clinton legacy lives on, but not in ways that "Willy" wants!
