Spending ourselves into a third world country?America spends x8
times more than any other country on earth, on our military.How'd that work out for Russia?When the military makes up
over HALF the budget, I know where my cuts would go.We should invade
other countries based on what they MIGHT do? Facts only please.
UT BritLondon, England,So, we,ll wait till NK, Iran, or who
ever to build their nukes. When the nukes are used, the world will beg the US
to bring an end.May not work. We are downsizing our military, and
spending ourselves into a third world country. It would take six hundred
thousand dollars for every second in a year to pay off our debt, and we're
still spending. We don't have the money, and Americans just blame rather
then fix the problem. Like fighting kids.As for countries building
rockets armed with nukes,--we've got to stop it before its too late. Our country is currently sending billions of dollars, and high tech
jets, and tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood. Giving, not selling.--Washington
Post. I don't know why.
@worfExactly how many times has NK, Iraq and Vietnam attacked the
US?How many times has the US attacked NK, Iraq and Vietnam?Oh and you dropped more bombs on Laos then you did during all of WW2. Hardly
holding back now was it?
I can't help being suspicious of people who are anxious for SOMEONE ELSE to
bomb/invade/attack another country. Talking about being brave is a lot easier
when you're sitting in a lounge chair watching Bill and Sean.
In the last 4 years...Ghdaffi is dead. (LIbya)Kim Jon Ill is
dead. (N. Korea)and Osama Bin Laden is dead.$800 million in
aid to Pakistan, cut. 07/10/11You want to claim weak leadership,
then you are looking in the mirror.Not the office of the President.
We don't worry how the N Koreans are.They should worry about
us. That worry doesn't exist right now, because of weak leadership. They
sit back, and wait for us to self-destruct in a pool of debt.
xscribe,First, you have some backbone. N Korea's nuclear
facilities can be taken out with bunker busters, guided missiles, and other
conventional weapons. If N Korea wanted war, and believe they could win,--they
would have done it by now. If we really used our military might, N Korea, Iraq,
Vietnam would have been gone quickly, and countries would leave us alone.
It's political.Instead, countries get financial aid, an
apology, and a small military punch. If we had commanders with grit, and
backbone,--nobody would mess with us.Killed Ambassador--blame
videoThreats of nukes--we do nothingCitizens killed along southern
border with ATF guns----executive order halting investigation.We
don't carry a big stick, and are being made fools.
I don't know, Worf. How about you tell us how easy it is, and how the act
won't start a war.
Having served in South Korea, I can tell you this.They will always
be threatening someone.They will always be shooting missiles.It's alot like a child who is crying for attention.The
Demilitarized Zone or 'DMZ' is the most heavily fortified boarder on
earth.America still has over 30,000 troops in S. Korea at any time.
Today included.How can American rationalize 'taking out'
N. Korea's nuclear facilities...when America is the only country to use an
Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
Having lived in Korea with my family and seeing this play out from the other
side of the world this still is scary. Bottom line is North Korea does not
think like we do. Ask a professional thief or serial killer why and you will
get the same type of answer from North Koreans. They think in their minds they
are above the rules and laws and they will not get caught or do not care. It is
really frightening and I hope that one day they collapse before they do
something really stupid. Problem is that the people are clueless. They think
the world revolves around them. My son went to North Korea and it is another
world. Lost in time and completely isolated. Not sure there is a right answer
to North Korea. Maybe another East Germany.
What's so hard about taking out their nuclear facilities? Just takes a few
minutes, and doesn't require going to war, followed by a costly
reconstruction expense. Didn't they just threaten us?
Which war do we start first: North Korea, Syria, Algeria, Iran? Where to
