Why an increase to the Pentagon. Utterly ridiculous. We are not at war. Cut them by 30% and bring some troops home.
Because we have Russia, China, North Korea and Iran flexing. Whenever the Pentagon “cuts” a budget, it falls on the backs of the troops. They aren’t canceling boondoggle projects or bases that have outlived their usefulness. Don’t do what the Clinton’s did to us, where ammo had to be rationed. Yes, I agree with bringing our folks home, but what happens when the balloon goes up? We have a responsibility, until NATO is disbanded to react and deploy.
Because having an unprepared military invites aggression. Peace through strength.
Apparently you are unaware that our military is in such a bad state that we are sending destroyers to sea with no (as in literally zero) ammunition for their guns because we didnt buy any and were putting up combat aircraft to defend the United States with guns that dont actually work. We are doing both and worse.
Yes, we are at war. 4th generation warfare is real and it’s goal is ending western civilization.
