Could The United States Fight And Win World War II Again?

Can Americans fight and win a “two-front war” today against China’s Xi Jinping, Russia’s KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin, and our other enemies globally who are bent on the destruction of the United States as a nation?  In World War II, we fought a multiple-front war against Adolf Hitler and the Nazis in Europe and the Middle East, and against Imperial Japan in the Pacific.  The United States and our allies won, and obtained the unconditional surrender of their axis of evil.

Since then, other wars have been fought and arguably “lost” by the United States.  The Korean War ended in a stalemate, with that country being divided as it is now.  The Vietnam War was “won” by the United States militarily, but lost by its politicians in Washington, D.C., who gave it to the North Vietnamese.  After seizing Kuwait, Iraq was invaded by the United States in “Operation Desert Storm,” during George H.W. Bush’s presidency.  Then, after we were attacked on 9/11, his son embarked on senseless wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

In Iraq alone, more than 5,000 Americans died and many more were maimed, and trillions of dollars were wasted, for nothing.  President Joe Biden just withdrew from Afghanistan, leaving Americans behind, as well as those who had helped us.  This humiliating defeat has encouraged both Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping to threaten Ukraine, Taiwan and elsewhere.[2]

Are we on the cusp of World War III, a multiple-front war that might be devastating for our future?  A chilling thought, especially at a time when our nation seems divided like at no other time since our Civil War.  And if we are attacked militarily, would we have time to build up our forces and war production like we did after Pearl Harbor was attacked?

So many mothers are balking about being forced to have their kids vaccinated to potentially ward off China’s deadly Coronavirus and its mutations.  How would they react if their daughters and sons were drafted into the military?  And would any Americans feel comfortable being led by Joe Biden—whose mental powers are suspect, at the very least—Kamala Harris[3] and a “woke” military hierarchy?  Also, check your laptops and other devices that you depend on, and note that most are made in China or contain essential components from China.

Realize too that our nation’s military command and control center in Colorado’s Cheyenne Mountain was quietly “updated” in recent years, inter alia, to respond to a nation-ending EMP attack that would shut down America almost overnight, and might be much more devastating than a nuclear attack.[4]  And what about our satellites, which circle the globe and provide us with essential communications technology that we take for granted?

Yes, Putism will not outlive Putin.[5]  But his voyeurism to maintain control of Russia while he is alive may have dangerous repercussions for us.  And China’s Mao Tse-tung was directly responsible for an estimated 30-40 million deaths between 1958 and 1960, as a result of what Mao’s regime hailed as the “Great Leap Forward.”[6]  Today, is China’s leadership prepared to lose millions of its own citizens to achieve global domination?  After all, it has used tactical EMP weapons to “fry” Indian soldiers in its border war with that country; and it has imprisoned approximately 1 million ethnic minorities including the Uyghurs.

If World War III begins, will it follow a trajectory similar to World War I, where a single spark or miscalculation might ignite it?  Will the chain of events move so rapidly that we are quickly overwhelmed?  After all, Americans and our allies have been weakened already—physically, mentally, morally and economically—by China’s Coronavirus and related factors.[7][8]  Or will God protect us, at a time when many Americans have turned their backs on God?[9]

[8]  Pat Buchanan—an adviser to Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, and a former GOP presidential aspirant himself—has written in an article entitled “Stress Test for a Fading Superpower”:

[A]s we went crusading for a new world order, Vladimir Putin’s Russia gradually recovered from its crushing Cold War defeat, and China began to move out of America’s shadow to become the most powerful rival modern America had ever faced.

. . .

After President Joe Biden’s humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan, Ukraine is the site of the latest challenge, triggered by Russia’s deployment of some 100,000 troops on Ukraine’s borders.

. . .

If we would not fight Russia on behalf of Ukraine, why would we go to war with China to defend the independence of Taiwan, when, 50 years ago this month, President Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger declared Taiwan to be “a part of China”?

. . .

North Korea has become a full-fledged nuclear power with intercontinental ballistic missiles that can hit the USA. Russia’s armed forces are more imposing than they were two decades ago. China has swept past every rival power to the United States, while America’s allies are less powerful and less united behind it.

Meanwhile, America has run up a national debt larger than the entire U.S. economy. Its trade deficits are at record levels. Its borders are being overrun by migrants from all over the world. And its disposition to intervene, engage and fight for democracy has rarely been lower.

The global stress test of the last superpower is on, and it is not likely we will pass it with a grade as high as the one we had earned by the Cold War’s end.
