Sybert expresses some disturbing comments about the state of our national security. First, he casually tells us that we are "naked," with respect to a Russian attack. Is that the end result of the trillion dollars we have spent on defense in the last five years?
He also implies that without our space-defense system we will not have "enough retaliatory capacity to deter a first strike." Have all our expenditures on our military triad, and especially the Navy and Air Force, been a total waste? What else, other than our composite triad, has deterred the Soviets in recent years from attacking us with their thousands of missile-carried nuclear warheads?
