As for technology...that is our greatest strength as long as we are fighting second world nations. Against first world nations, it is our weakness. Anything networked can and will be hacked, and our military is highly networked.

That's why China and Russia have entire branches of the military dedicated to cyber warfare. Keyboards are their second greatest anti-US weapon, second only to EMP.

Believe me, Chinese and Russian doctrine does not involve taking the US military on in conventional warfare. Their doctrine is to attack the technology, and then attack the crippled forces that depend on the technology.
We have the same thing and in many ways it's far superior to these despotic countries.
