16. Threats to who?
The nation they are sworn to protect or their budgets and post service military consulting jobs?

The main threat to the USA and assuming they take their oath to protect the nation and the Constitutions seriously, to the USA military is that the US middle class and industrial base will be hollowed out by the US corporations whose first priority is profits.

The next threat is being whipped up by these same US corporations' media by their campaign to demonize the government and the common good by playing on the worst characteristics of people to whip up anti-other-American hatred. Remember, Bush the stupid was wrong (redundant phrase) when he said our oceans had protected us in the past (assuming the British walked over the North Pole to burn Washington DC in the War of 1812. American versus hatred was not prevented by the ocean when we lost 600,000 American soldiers in the Civil War.
