Amerikwa has to pretend it's no big deal because it has few options open to it otherwise. It's already got a military stretched so thin it's almost nonexistent. No civil defense program, the War Room being run out of a former dance hall at Patterson Air Force Base, the dollar tumbling towards birdcage liner parity by the hour. Like a man who has gambled away his life savings and paychecks for three months in a row but continues to claim "everything will be okay," you have to wonder if the Yanks are not starting to retreat into a fetal shell with their thumbs in their mouths in some dark corner.
