Bigger Stick Wins. Proven fact. One with the bigger stick usually wins.
US has the biggest stick. The moment we start shaving it down, we lose control.
Same old argument: "But we spend so much already!"
Yeah? Well, let's keep it that way to ensure that we stay on top. Personally, I am not nearly satisfied with the amount of training and equipment we are provided with when facing mortal danger. But it will do.
The very moment the "people," start taking away those things, I will feel very inadequate to serve in the front lines. If you think it's too much, I suggest you grab a rifle and stand outside the wire, it may change your view of "military-funding."
