It’s a recipe for disaster.

Is it? Or will it force other countries to step up and spend their own money to defend themselves?

The one thing we can do is spend other countries into oblivion. Being the fiat currency gives us this ability. We are already 16 TRILLION in debt. As horrible as that is, let me ask this question:

What is the functional difference of being 16 trillion in debt or 17? Or 18 trillion? Is there one, other than the obvious?

Ideally, we’d cut the wasted spending to pay for defense but that doesn’t look likely to happen.
