  •    USA is in colossal debt on a scale never before seen. Why not cut the military?

    USA's debt is enormous, however there are being cuts contemplated everywhere but the military (to a certain extent). Why haven't Democrats or Republicans proposed large cuts in military spending? it seems like the wise decision. After all, it is to a large extent what drove debts up so high.

The united state of America is most powerful country in the world now because they give value to the thinking of the people who have the talent to do something for this country. cleaning

Re: USA's huge armed forces




Excessive military expenses is what will ruin the USA ultimately.
The USA are power drunk on military superiority, to the extent that their defense budget is equal to the 16 following countries!!

China emerging as the next superpower is far more circumspect about military superiority, and doesn't advocate it at all cost.

The reason why not to cut the military is because it is our finest asset. If we cut the military than poorly equipped countries like Taiwan or Belarus will come in and invade and our freedom will be taken.

The global stalemate will not last. Conflicts are breaking out. Already. Causing innocent deaths. sad

To all Yanks on site. Spread the word of peace. One person may make no difference. A hundred may still be obsolete. Ten thousand can't ripple the surface. But if you keep on, you can play your part in ending global suffering. champ

Your comrade, Archduke. smile

P.S About my earlier posts I admit I was fairly emotional when writing but I don't take it back. drinking47

An imperialist government and an ignoring populace is the reason for the world's most powerful military is trampling on innocent people with a semi-criminal government. evil hang marionette mad

The people are almost always innocent. paper

@TheAmerican

Tut, tut. Do you Yanks have the guts to piss the Dragon off? No.

Why? Look at the symbol of your pathetic marionette government.
Pissing the Dragon off does not follow the wishes of the dynasties behind the republic. So even if you dare, not enough will support you to make the Dragon even bother about crushing you like an ant.

But if that is the case, then peace becomes simply the absence of war, rather than something to actually strive to build through diplomacy.

Why did you sign your post with "The Expert", was that an accident or a person with 2 accounts confusing them.

@The American

But spending in military and cutting the social spending to rise military spending, while the world is at a never seen before state of peace and that your spending is already more than all millitary spending in the world. At this point, it's not only to ensure peace.

There is something weird in that. Or Obama is despotic, or he prepare to invade the world or there is hostiles aliens on their way to earth.
In any of these cases, Obama is good for the psycatric hospital.

@SgtPeppers,

Qui desiderat pacem, bellum praeparat; nemo provocare ne offendere audet quem intelliget superiorem esse pugnaturem. Whosoever desires peace prepares for war; no one provokes, nor dares to offend, those who they know to be superior in battle. Flavius Vegetius Renatus in "De Re Militari" (390 B.C.E)

@Linc 

600 billion dollars and being increased by Obama, your budget is 47% of the total worlds military spending, with every other country in NATO combined equaling 23%, you budget is disproportionate to its purpose.

@Linc Don't be so proub of your military budget. Look at your health care, your law enforcing and your juridic system that make the shame of the USA because all the money is sent to the military instead of these essential services.

Oh it is much bigger, this survey only included people who were capable of understanding and articulating the english language, that rules out most of the southern states (having been to all of them, I can say that the stupidity is so thick you can smell it). For example, try reading "The Expert's" arguments against evolution, they are an example of poor use of the language and conclusive proof that taxonomists are right in saying we are in fact still apes.

Re: USA's huge armed forces




@NikoLStak 

On a tangent here, but a survey from a couple years ago found that only 30% of Americans believed Muslims do not want the best for America (Ironically that percent was the same as registered Republicans in the general populous) When the same question was applied to Atheists, the number shot to just short of 50%, so in other words, Americans fear the intelligent more than people who frequently try to kill them.

Because the US are paranoiacs... They look under their bed every night to make sure there is no muslim or commies under it. lol2

More seriously, it's gonna happen. They can't hold their first military power status without economic repercussions.
