The US Air Force is the largest in the world. You know who has the second largest Air Force ? The US navy. Obama cut defense spending and boosted funding for all of the other agencies, especially the ones that serve his voters. Everyone including Trump supporters are talking about this historical military boost on all the social networking sites. Glad to have a real leader in place for a change. Defense spending? I guess America will be in another war soon.
We cannot get passed a single generation without entering into some kind of conflict."White House budget director Mick Mulvaney later confirmed, during the daily press briefing, that they’re seeking a defense budget of $603 billion, “one of the largest increases in history.”-FoxNews. And of course building our defenses will surely put every other country at ease. Sarcasm right, let us not worry about the idiot in North Korea that now has nuclear capabilities and shows no restraint, or Iran which is developing a nuclear program with an eye on decimating Israel and American bases overseas.
Trump is a business man not a politician. He will make decisions based on common sense not on political games . Those are just annoyances, not to mention a small annoyance called ISIS which has already openly declared a jihad against the United States and all Christians in general. Our military spending equals the next six highest spending countries combined. The fact that Donald Trump is moving forward with this historical military defense increase, affected the SEO for keywords like "military" and "defense", now it's a trend online. Even children are talking about it on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. Roughly $600 billion annually as it is .... I wonder which military contractors Bannon owes favors? According to FoxNews. “This budget will be a public safety and national security budget,” Trump said. He said the plan would include a “historic increase in defense spending to rebuild the depleted military.”
The president reiterated that he wants to better prepare the military to not only deter war but win wars when called to fight. “We’ve got to win or don’t fight it at all,” Trump said." Which supports the theory that world leaders run behind unnecessary arms race, they forget about the real problems of the common man and they do not realize that if knowingly or unknowingly any of these weapons are operated or used, that would be the end of this world. Make this world a family of nations under a world government. And say goodbye to wars.
Point is we don't really need to spend more on our military. 54 billion could be used for so many better things domestically. I'm pretty fiscally conservative.....and I'm not sure why there needs to be an increase in military spending. Everyone complains about how much the USA spends on defense, and yet no one cares we are effectively footing the bill for all of NATO.
