    US is past the point of being in trouble. Global encompassing Roman legion. How do these idiots plan to keep financing this with a weak economy and few prospects for a 1980's surge in output. Fish rots from the head down and the maggots are starting to appear as militarization begins to trump economic output. A strong military is impossible without a strong economy. All the flag-wavers should take heed. As the liberal serpent-head stated "It's the economy stupid."
