Having mourned the loss of U.S. primacy, the Pentagon report sees expanding the U.S. military as the only option.

Breaking news: the Pentagon wants to expand the U.S. military. How could anyone have seen this coming? Here I was expecting the Pentagon report to suggest such things as improving the failed American education system or paying average Americans better wages to help bail out this sinking ship.

I’m shocked, just shocked that the Pentagon didn’t find any reason to suspect U.S. decline could stem from America’s horrible domestic policies, such as — and this is just off the top of my head — decades of Pentagon budgetary waste in the form of funneling excessive amounts of money to military contractors and arms manufacturers.

I can’t tell if the Pentagon is just trolling us or if they’re morons, but I guess it is a cold, hard truth in America that the best and brightest don’t end up in military intelligence.

Just the facts: Writer. Gamer. Feminist. Educated in Astrophysics. Professional Gambler. Student of Language. Satanist. Anarchist.
