    The USA is Under Attack-The Asymmetrical Attack That's Happening Right Now

    The USA is Under Attack-The Asymmetrical Attack That's Happening Right Now

    The United States is under asymmetric attack by a peer adversary.  It's not a cyber attack.  It is much more insidious, much more unusual, and much more effective over time.   It is the mass migration of humanity across the Southwest Border of the United States.  It's being facilitated and paid for by the People's Republic of China in order to destabilize the USA from within and remove it as a strategic geopolitical player on the world stage.  Listen to this episode and let the Colonel know what you think.
