US Army "funded" for $ 700 billion


Just signed the bill. Now we will be stronger than ever before. We love our army and need it, we gave it everything and more. This happened for the first time in a long time.
- Trump wrote on his Twitter page.

Last December, Donald Trump signed the defense budget for 2018 fiscal year (starting in October 2017) in the amount of $ 692 billion. At that, the approved figure contradicted the law on financial limitations of 2011 of the year, according to which no more than $ 549 could be allocated for defense billion

In accordance with the new bill, financing of state institutions in the United States will continue in the current volume until March 23 inclusive, until both houses of the American parliament agree on long-term budget plans. After that, the US Department of Defense will be able to receive funding in the amount of $ 700 billion for the current fiscal year and $ 716 billion for the 2019 fiscal year, which will begin on October 1 2018, reports "Warspot"

    700 lards of democracy and peace ... and this is the most humane and peaceful country? And the whole world sees it and still considers Russia an aggressor, although over the past 70 years, the United States is the most warring country in the world. Some kind of epic dissonance in the minds of people.

      Ahem, I would not say that. No.
      In order to assert and maintain its “right” to exploit other peoples, America regularly resorts to the use of extreme forms of violence and, above all, military. Here is a list of known armed interventions and other crimes. Of course, he cannot claim absolute completeness, but there is no more complete one. Only during the years 1661-1774 about a million living slaves were imported from Africa to the United States, and over nine million died along the way. The income of the slave traders from this operation in mid-2th century prices was at least $ 1622 billion, an astronomical figure for those times. 1622. American wars begin with the first attack on the Indians in 1635 in Jamestown, followed by the war with the Algokin Indians in New England in 1636-1675. and the war of 1676-1900, ending in the destruction of almost half of the cities in Massachusetts. Other wars and skirmishes with the Indians continued until 100. In total, the Americans destroyed somewhere around 4 million Indians, which makes it possible to talk about real genocide, far superior to the massacre of Jews by Hitler (6-1689 million victims). From 1763 to 1641, four major imperial wars took place involving England and its North American colonies, as well as the French, Spanish and Dutch empires. From 1759 to 40, there were 18 riots and 1776 internal conflicts among the settlers, five of them rose to the level of uprisings. In 1783, the war of independence began, which ended in 1812. The second war against England in 1815-40. strengthened independence, while 1622 wars with the Indians from 1900 to XNUMX ended with the addition of millions of acres of land.

      And all because, in addition to lards for the army, they spend the same lards on the media and propaganda. At the same time, as we have in the media, "Democracy, pluralism of opinions and freedom of speech."
      Only in Russia is it possible that on live broadcasts on the central channels, some “Kovtuns, Boms and other Koreyans” irrigated our country with feces for days on end, and our “Democrats” stood in their jackets and made excuses.

            I believe that many of us who blindly considered America as a hail on a hill and an ideal to follow, have seen through the statements of representatives of the democratic West and aspirants

            Many people watch these programs abroad, and also draw conclusions.

              Many of us who blindly considered America to be a hail on the hill and ideal for imitation, have not seen their sight, they watch broadcasts and only become convinced that "Our TV breaks the bottom, specially invite clowns to instill hatred and rejection in us." Who is, say, Kovtun, so that our viewer judges Ukraine by him? He is not a politician, not a representative of some upper class. Before the airs at Solovyov nobody knew him even in Ukraine. This is so, for example.

      This dissonance is paid by the State Department and is supported by compromising materials from the NSA! (CIA, FBI and another 15 intelligence agencies).

        This would work, or rather, it would work when there were no parabolic antennas, the Internet, mobile communications and generally alternative sources of information for people other than newspapers and TV. Now, everything has changed dramatically and that’s why the Iron Curtain doesn’t fall on either side, that’s why we have well-wishers (I don’t call them allies) and that’s why the same State Department is constantly lying and methodical, as are the German Media, US TV channels, etc.

    After that, the US Department of Defense will be able to receive funding in the amount of $ 700 billion for the current fiscal year and $ 716 billion for the 2019 fiscal year, which will begin on October 1, 2018.

    Somehow there are American and Russian politicians in America. An American politician brings a Russian to his villa. And there the villa is so villa. Everything in the highest level - three-story, beautiful interior, outdoor pool, in general, everything is as it should. Russian asks:
    - Look, you have a rather low official salary, but where do you get grandmothers from in such a villa?
    “Very simple,” the American answers and takes the Russian to the window. “Do you see the bridge?”
    - Well
    “They allocated $ 2 million for its construction, and I took 500 thousand for myself, and built a bridge for one and a half million.” Worse, of course, but still functioning.
    “I see,” said the Russian and invited the American to his homeland.
    An American politician arrived in Russia, and led his Russian politician to his villa. And there ... Not a villa, but just a palace. 6-storey mansion, everywhere crystal, gold, old wood. Well, the American got fucked up and asks:
    - Damn, Russian, well, I stole it, built a three-story villa, but what kind of shisha could you get such a palace for yourself?
    “Very simple,” the Russian replies and leads the American to the window. “Do you see the bridge?”
    - Which bridge?

    With all this, the federal budget of the Americans looks like this:

    Of course, now, for all positions, the amounts will increase, but as a percentage of the changes there will be no big changes and the costs of healthcare and social insurance will be significantly higher than defense.

      O wisest of the wisest! Turn your eyes to the world map and see how many countries the same candy wrappers have already bought and how many of them are ready to buy even more. For one of the indicators of a strong economy is a stable and expensive currency, for which there is a demand not only within the country, but also from other states buying it. Even your compatriots, the precious Volka, keep at least 20 billions of such wrappers under their pillows and mattresses. However, I'm not talking about oligarchs and other cellists hiding their candy wrappers in foreign banks. The US dollar, oh, the wisest, not the best that is in the world, but the most popular currency in the world. The economy of the issuing country of this currency is diversified and stable (it can withstand even financial crises) and therefore, it is the dollar that is the world's reserve currency. The collapse of this currency, oh Volka, will lead to innumerable troubles in the world economy, to the immediate fall of the governments of dozens of countries, to the most bloody civil wars on all continents, including in the territory of such a large state as the Russian Federation.

              What does "not return" mean? You yourself write "about 100bn. Of the Russian Federation poured into securities." You have in your hands mortgages yielding a steady profit, because the state mortgages are paid stable interest. These papers are liquid - they are freely bought and redeemed. What kind of uncleanliness are we talking about? This is you, your state over the past years 20-25 has showered several times. What, no? I am from the 30 Dollar Witness Sect. It's not easy to fool me. lol
              In fact, I am so old that I still remember a dollar and 90 kopecks, and 6 rubles.
              I remember even the old-old joke:
              The ratio between the dollar, the pound and the ruble
              1 dollar is equal to pound rubles.

        This is all a matter of perception. There was a time, and the "candy wrappers" of MMM were appreciated.

    Of these, 600 billion will go to the maintenance of their bases around the world, so their army lags behind Russia in some directions. Not enough funds to develop a normal missile defense, electronic warfare, etc.

      That is - salaries, military payments, insurance for injuries and death, maintenance of bases, the purchase of fuel and ammunition, the purchase of food for the military. And 150-200 billion remains for new weapons, so the military are whining that there is no money. And if we count in% the cost of manufacturing 1 unit of weapons, equipment and we count, then from 150 - 200 billion remains even less.

      In general, on the bmpd resource there is data where the money is sent and how much equipment will be purchased.

    US Army "funded" for $ 700 billion

    The whole world is "chipped". And the Central Bank of the Russian Federation with the oligarchs did not stand aside. Whatever they say, "start."

    The economy of the issuing country of this currency is diversified and stable.

    Issuing countries? The issuer is the private structure of the Fed, and the US state takes a loan from him at a loan interest, am I mistaken?

    Moreover, these 700 lard 3.5% of their US gross domestic product, since the Russian Federation spends more than 5.7% on the defense industry, In the ratio of the RF gdp it spends more on the defense industry. Oh, and don’t forget to forget the USA’s GDP 20 times more than the Russian money they don’t spit this time. You won’t be surprised that when it doesn’t reach a trillion.

      You are absolutely mistaken. The difference in GDP between Russia and the United States is five times. However, 60% of US GDP is puffed up financial bubbles; US production surpasses Russia by two to two and a half times - which corresponds to the difference in population.

          If you look at the PPP GDP, then five times. And for example, steel production is almost parity, which does not speak in favor of the American economy.
