Military Review

Trump asks for money from Congress for war. Against who?

33
US President Donald Trump sent a letter to Congress. In the letter, Trump argues about why the States need to increase budget spending on military operations in the near future. According to Trump, it is necessary to additionally direct about 6 billion dollars to the American military component.


This amount by the standards of the US military budget, estimated at about 600 billion dollars, is very small. However, we are talking about increase military budget expenditures that fits precisely into the militaristic strategy.

Trump asks for money from Congress for war. Against who?


To push the idea, Trump says that the new tools "will help to take additional measures to counter the North Korean nuclear threat." Experts say that, in fact, it may well be a question of the possible financing of the military operation being prepared in the USA against the DPRK. As the representative of the Pentagon spoke at the congressional hearings the other day, "it is possible to know for sure about the nuclear potential of North Korea only through a ground operation."

Trump in the letter notes that about 1,2 billion dollars from the requested amount should go to "support the American strategy in South Asian countries." First of all, it is about financing the newly increasing American contingent in Afghanistan.

      No, everything is more serious there, because the money will go to the war in North Korea, and to the war against the Donbass! The Yankees are ready to give money there if Paroshenko gives guarantees to destroy the republics, and without solid guarantees there will be no money! It’s just that, with all his desire, Paroshenko cannot subjugate all the gangs and private armies of ukroin that are required of him in the United States.

            Where do you get this from? And why two wars? Consider:
            1 is Afghanistan
            2 is Iraq
            3 is Syria
            4 is the DPRK
            5 is Libya, etc. etc.
            Something you have with monitoring is really bad ...

          They will probably decide on the basis of how the GDP will crack with Trump at the summit in Vietnam. So far, they have only recently cut down dill military aid from 360 million to 150 million and hindered the issue of the supply of lethal weapons.

      No, this is another empty chatter and trump puffing! lol The ground operation, even the Americans can’t even start! yes For a ground operation, the Americans must pull almost their entire fleet to the Korean peninsula and land in the south of the peninsula 500 thousand army, with 2 thousand tanks and at least 3 thousand aircraft! In addition, it will be necessary to announce the mobilization of South Korean reservists and increase the strength of the South Korean army to 3 million soldiers! None of the above can be done! As soon as the Americans begin to put together an attack force against North Korea, the northerners will immediately respond with a preemptive strike in the south, which in a couple of days will lead to the deaths of millions of people in southern Korea! American soldiers who are stationed in the south of the peninsula will also be hit! Hence the conclusion that it is impossible to solve the North Korean problem by military means and Kim knows this very well! yes

        Well, just like during the Second World War. It is enough for the United States to launch air strikes against the nuclear arsenal and the DPRK launchers in order to win. True, all the artillery that the DPRK possesses will completely cover South Korea, the ground operation is meaningless since over the years the DPRK has become a criminal fortress. I see no other way than the use of US tactical nuclear weapons against North Koreans, and perhaps the strike will be unexpected.

          Yes, they have hidden everything so underground for a long time that you can’t get it in any way except with a nuclear charge. and Sasha will never agree to a nuclear conflict

        I absolutely agree that it is impossible to solve the North Korean problem by military means. But in principle, your calculations are not entirely correct.
        You are just like in the early days, bet on one decisive battle. You can unleash a sluggish war and rely on the exhaustion of the enemy (which is death for the DPRK). Another thing is that it is impossible to drive the DPRK into such a situation because Eun, who is squeezed into a corner, will still apply everything that he has. request There are no options, he does not intend to give up, for Gaddafi and Sadam are a definite example of his perspective ...

    6 billion for the operation against the DPRK ??? The author does not want to google how much the campaign against Iraq cost even at the initial stage ?! But the DPRK is not Iraq, there are crowds of people exalted by Juche and they like Iraqis will not scatter. In general, it may also go for some sort of reconnaissance measures, but this amount does not pull for a ground operation.

    Everyone needs money, and the more the better. They are needed in the DPRK, they are needed for an ideological war against Russia, they are needed to somehow support the Ukrainian junta, etc. The world is already awash with nothing unsecured pieces of paper, and they stamp them at an accelerated pace. It seems to me that another economic crisis provoked by America rather than a war with the DPRK will begin.

    Well, fortunetellers on coffee grounds wink If you want to know if there is a war, al no, then ask the military, who are watching in near-Earth space. They will tell you exactly according to the changes in the orbits of the American satellites against whom they are going to fight. They will begin to increase the grouping over Korea - that means they really will. No - that means they grind with their tongue. Americans will not fight without specific training request

    And then the map will fall ... The vectors of a possible use of force by the USA are now SUFFICIENT. Although a more variant of the DPRK is now being viewed. And if they come out there, then we should expect other conflicts.
