Americans spend more on their military than the rest of the world combined. We currently have bases in 150 countries around the world. Amazingly while we were in Afghanistan, we had well over 100 bases alone, insanity. As we left Afghanistan, we basically gave all of the infrastructure and equipment to the Afghanistan people because it was cheaper to do that, rather than to move it all back to America, even more insanity. The money we threw away in Afghanistan would have basically funded medicare for the next twenty years and then some.
What was accomplished in Afghanistan? Zero.
Americans have no idea the kind of corruption that took place during the last 50 years. Money wasted on supposedly keeping America safe. The money that has found its way into past presidents pockets and perks for the crooks in office is of monumental proportions. Trillions are unaccounted for. Donald Rumsfeld even acknowledged that in one of his speeches. America has become the south side of Chicago to the rest of the world and it must stop.
Currently, we have the youngest bunch of greenhorns in office. Never before have we had such a large contingency of freshman in the white house. Are we going to let them get away with the kind of corruption their senior mafia has perpetrated on the American people during the last 30 years? Or are we going to slap them down a notch?
God only knows how many drones America currently operates worldwide, but the estimates I’ve heard are around 35,000 with huge bases planned and currently in operation. Soon, we will no longer need pilots sitting in the cockpit of war planes. They will be sitting in bunkers playing with joysticks. This will enable our war planes to be built in a whole new way, able to withstand huge G-forces well over the limits of what we have now, needless to say, a much more deadly aircraft, able to maneuver in ways currently unheard of.
This, plus the current fleet of carriers and our deadly missiles, pretty much cuts our military needs in half. End of story. Anything else is only a corruption grab, a war mongering way of pilfering money from the people. Soldiers on the ground are becoming as useless as listening to the speeches we are forced to endure from our current bunch of birds on the hill.
“We the People” must make this point clear in all of our blogs and communications with our friends and family. We must shout this military cutback until the cows come home. It’s damned important. America is no longer in need of having to be with such a large military force. These supposed enemies we are constantly being told we have can be handled differently now, that simple.
Currently, there are lasers being developed that will be able to take out a gnat’s ass from miles away. These will undoubtedly be mounted on unmanned aircraft.
The way we fight war is changing in ways that all allies to America must share in together now and not have to shoulder alone, that simple. The crooks on the hill must be dealt with. We must stand strong together and demand changes.
