All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

"We have less horses and bayonets, too”
Marines and THEIR weapon of choice.
Meanwhile, what a stupid comparison.
Where Romney avoided the throat however, I will not.
Mr. Obama, there is a certain irreducible number of ships beneath which the US Navy cannot execute it’s missions.
We no longer have battleships, or cruisers of any kind, instead very large destroyers, and small destroyer size frigates.
We have a SHRINKING NUMBER of aircraft carrier task forces, and a shrinking number of Navy Aircraft, and to this day we have NO NAVY STEALTH AIRCRAFT, NOT ONE.
We have 186 F-22 air superiority fighters replacing 751 F-15 air superiority fighters and we are manufacturing NO MORE. We must maintain our fleet of F-15 strike aircraft designed in the 1970’s, and have no idea if the undeployed F-35’s (until at least 2017) will really be able to act suitably to replace them.
We have an undeployed shrinking buy of F-35’s in the range of 2,000 to replace 5-7000 F-16’s.
In every field the numbers are shrinking.
We have eschewed the design and or deployment of any new ICBM, or submarine launched ICBM. We have avoided the design of any new and more stealthy version of the MAIN AMERICAN NUCLEAR DETERRENT AGAINST ANY ENEMY, the ballistic missile submarine.
Now perhaps, Mr. President, you would care to argue that our units are so advanced that one day we will have a single vehicle so advanced that just one could fly air-ground support against Al Qaeda, the Taliban and other Islamists, destroy the Russian and Chinese air forces, and protect convoys at sea, but I would not.
In each and every field we are reaching that minimum line below which we cannot be effective and will be sacrificing our men for nothing, or will have to cede the ground to an enemy.
You, Mr. President are not responsible for ALL OF THIS, but you are RESPONSIBLE for not righting this, and ACCELERATING THIS.
You are responsible.
So when you tell the American people you would move heaven and earth to protect them, what you are in fact, REALLY telling them is that you will moving our troops into the earth and into heaven.
