The sobering truth about the national security threats to a financially squeezed USA

The year 2012 is shaping up to be a big year for the United States as far as increased national security threats are concerned. No, I’m not talking about Iraq or Afghanistan. I’m talking about the almost constant and ever increasing threats to U.S. national security from Iran, North Korea and China.
When you consider former Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ words of wisdom that the U.S. has never “gotten it right” when it comes to predicting the next conflict, one thing’s for sure – the U.S. has to have the right national security strategy in place and it can’t afford to gamble.
In Iran, the Ahmadinejad regime is getting dangerously close to what Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak calls the “Zone of Immunity,” meaning its underground uranium enrichment facility near Qum is becoming so impregnable that even the bust bunker buster munitions won’t faze it.
