European defense spending: Should European nations spend more on defense?

  • Yes to Defense

    Europeans should spend more on defense. Defense is one of the budgetary requirements that should not get a cut back in regards to balancing the national debt. The defense of a nation is one of the major responsibilities of government to its people. European nations should spend more on defense.

  • There is no reason for it

    There is no clear reason why Europe should spend more on defense than it currently is. There has not been a serious attack on a European country for many years, and there is no clear danger today that cannot be currently faced. The US spends a massive amount on defense because its taken upon itself the mantle of world military authority - something Europe has neither done nor desires to do.
