Lots of stuff there. Could you tell what view you mean, and where it is
at the site?

I guess the function of the Air Force is to protect us by all means from
the things that *they* think are scary. Hmm...

Among the reasons why USAF may not exist in 2025 that I found listed
there, a dissolution of USA is not mentioned. I did not look well
enough, but I think that the hypothesis that nanites may represent
the greatest airborne threat in 2025 was not listed there.
I am sure USAF will shoot them all down though.
