Why doesn't the US have a network of (manned 24 hours) SAM batteries stationed throughout the country to deter potential intruders? Seems like a huge missed opportunity.
>>
Because there's a network of (manned 24 hours) radars that will see anything when it's four thousand miles away.
>>
>>28890995

But they can't do anything if they don't have missiles to fire at intruders.

Are you stupid or something? Who the fuck would invade by air?

US has been conquered through southern border. Maybe you should think about positioning automatic sentries on top of the Trump's wall. Because, you know, americans are already becoming a minority in a country they founded and are being displaced.

Just sayin'...

Are mexican immigrants really an issue? Most of the old ones I've met are right wing as fuck and most second/third generation ones are usually mutts who are as white as me and don't know any spanish. They're not like asian or muslim immigrants who won't integrate.

Airforce. Ever hear of it?

You'll have to be more exact than that, anon. I can't think of any time in the history of heavier than air flight, where SAM batteries would have been necessary to deter potential intruders that come from the sky.

Your grandchildren, if you manage to procreate, will speak spanish. The average IQ of the country will drop to around 90. US towns will resemble towns in Mexico (open sewage, crime, non-functioning government). So you tell me if that's an issue to you.

Yet there are fucking retards who still jerk off to Red Dawn and dream of fighting some boogeyman that's thousands of miles away and doesn't give a fuck about invading US. All the while, their country's been conquered and their culture is being gradually exterminated and replaced with a foreign one.

usa military prefers to sink money into hitting targets on land( in other countries) not air. the military is almost purely offensive; it's air and navy are huge compared to any other nation, because the foreign policy hinges on the ability to project force into uncooperative markets/leaders

>>28891541
russia realizes this and while they might be able to compete technologically, they know they can't compete logistically/economically to keep that many birds operating should the need arise. instead they have very advanced rocketry as a counter to air superiority. ever noticed how everyone in the region of a russian ally cracks the shits when russia supplies them with some s300/s400 rocket systems?

If your opponent was using muskets and upgraded to bolt action rifles it would be a big deal because even if you are using Assault rifles, their bolt actions are still a bigger danger than the muskets.

The US proper is the anglo saxon east coast. All the areas where latinos are a problem are way out west, and used to be part of Mexico until the US seized them. You would do well to retreat back east where you belong.

Navy, Air Force, and the only slight pain in the ass we share a border with is Mexico who isn't the actual problem (the cartels are).

Unnecessary.

2 oceans and the Gulf of Mexico to act as giant moats (that factor alone is what did the most work to keep America safe before it had a top-tier military, and still keeps America safe compared to any Euroasian/African nation), entire northern border is with a best friends forever ally, and entire southern border is with a historically-unfriendly but militarily weak neighbor that has become sort-of-friendly over past few decades.

Combined with radar stations that would pick up anything that comes within a few thousand miles of US airspace, there would be more than enough time to put some fighter jets in the air to intercept any threats.

SAM batteries are for when you can't afford to have a proper air force and/or you won't have enough advance warning of an air raid to get your interceptor jets off the runway.

Because controlling the 1st and 2nd largest air forces in the world+a navy larger than the next 11 largest combined while being protected by 2 oceans serves as a pretty good deterrent.

I mean one US CSG contains more tonnage than 99% of any one nations navy.
