I would totally agree with this statement if:
1. It was correct OR
2. It is useful
If you cannot see that there is almost nothing of significance going on that isn't new, that is going to have to be assigned to the category of incorrect.
Have you noticed any scenarios from 1941 when the existence of the United states was threatened? I noticed we kicked everybody's ass with plenty of people and materiale to spare. The closest anyone got was Hawaii. There are good people in Hawaii, but, according to my crystal ball, Hawaii is not exactly the heart and primary strength of the country. Our whole navy got blown to smithereens. It took us almost 6 months to rebuild it. Damn, that was rough.
