cristi.barnes said, about 5 hours agoLet’s remember that CONGRESS cut military spending, not the prez. It’s his job to cut responsibly—-(end quote)-Congress is being bypassed by Obama and he is bragging about violating the constitution that makes it Congress’ job to initiate spending plans & bills. -Tigger is correct…Iran’s leaders are doing their utmost to start a war (to obey the Koran) and they threaten to block the Hormuz Strait through which the Persian oil is shipped to the world buyers. Oil is a strategic necessity for every nation’s defense.-the reason the USA must have a huge defense spending program is that we are the Western World’s main defense!The US defends the UK and Europe and Israel and all the countries where we have deployments…the newest to be a large contingent in Australia. We have activist enemies…not just Iran but N.Korea and China and the new buildup of Russia plus the Arab federation that intends to obliterate Israel, the USA’s sister democratic state in the Mideast.
