Thoughts? Also, foreigners, what do you think about the US spending 700 Billion in defense annually? https://www.npr.org/sections/parall...pentagon-plans-to-spend-that-extra-61-billion Congress was in a generous mood when it passed a spending bill last week, giving the military at minimum an additional $61 billion and boosting its overall budget to $700 billion this year. For some perspective, that $61 billion increase matches or even surpasses Russia's entire military budget each year. It's more than the Trump administration originally requested. It rivals two big spending surges during President George W. Bush's administration, in 2003 and 2008, which went to fund the Iraq War.
