They can’t all defend themselves. We are borrowing money for welfare programs far more than for defense.
If you think the budget will shrink because Hagel shrinks defense, that is a pipe dream. These guys are blowing the budget through the roof.
Certainly you don’t think Chuck Hagel and Barack Obama are crafting a wise defense policy for the United States? They will only invite war.
Sorry. Staying out out of wars is a sound defense. It is the other countries that you mentioned that may not have a sound defense.
