ISIS

The United States is making air strikes in the Middle East against ISIS.  We are making two or three airstrikes per day.  In World War Two the United States would send a thousand bombers and a thousand fighter planes against a single city in Germany.

Now the US Air Force is such a pitiful shell of what it used to be that we can't sustain a war against a small group of terrorists.  We used to be able to darken the skies with aircraft, we had massive numbers of planes.  In most of the post World War Two era, the United States tried to have enough military might to be able to fight a small war in the Middle East and a large war in both Europe and Asia.

Now our military has declined to the point were we can't even fight a small war in the Middle East.  As Ronald Reagan said, no war has come about because American was too strong.  We have few warships now then we did before the attack on Pearl Harbor.  The United States needs to rebuild it's industrial base, our electronics and computer industry, and increase defense spending, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
