Military Review

In the US, told about a significant increase in military spending

The United States budget for 2018 fiscal year suggests the largest increase in defense spending in 15 years, RIA News Post Speaker Paul Ryan.

Earlier, the draft budget was agreed in the congress by representatives of the republican and democratic parties.

Today is the beginning of a new era for the United States military. The largest increase in defense spending over the years 15 allows you to begin to repair the damage of the last decade,
said ryan.

According to him, the military budget, which has been sequestered for several years, will be increased immediately by 80 billions of dollars.

The federal budget must be passed before Friday, otherwise the government may be left without funding. After the adoption of the law by both chambers, the document will be sent for signature to the President of the United States.

Recall, due to differences between Republicans and Democrats, the United States lived for a long time on temporary short-term budgets.

      The experience of Americans shows that an increase in funding does not always translate into the quality of weapons. Rather, in increasing the profit of the performer. F-35 is a good example.

          Need to get rid of the dollar. US increasing military spending increases public debt! Sooner or later, but this financial bubble will burst, drag the whole global economy ...
          It is necessary to reduce risks and possible consequences in advance!

    Given the constant overpricing of military products (aircraft, ships, etc.), the US military budget will continue to grow, and the military-industrial complex will grow rich. But these are their problems.

      They now have a budget of more than 700 billion, and will be about $ 800 billion. This is some incredible money. But basically I agree - the budget (ameropil) of the budget.

    The arms race is gaining momentum, and our GPV is planned to be reduced, which will definitely affect military parity.

    The concept of "Defense ramps" in relation to the United States sounds like a farce. Rather, the "offensive-occupational" costs ...
    The hegemony of the dollar is currently supported largely due to US military dominance. With the strengthening of competitors and a decrease in the level of US military dominance, there is a risk of losing the hegemony of the dollar, that is, the collapse of the global dollar fraud. And this is an iron argument for increasing the military budget, which is what the most "not corrupt" bureaucrats lobbyists in the USA use. From the category: "Add it before it starts! ..."

      Nothing can last forever.
      All empires crumble, that’s their way. The main thing is not to fall under the debris, i.e. to the side, to the side to go!

    Increased funding in an extremely corrupt system, such as the US military-industrial complex (our former Cherkizon is a kindergarten compared to it), will only lead to the development of more and more expensive and financially capacious fantastic wunderwaffles, ideally striving for the design of a perpetual motion machine and universal annihilator.
    Which, sucking up more and more money, will certainly infringe on the systems actually necessary for the army, even in the field of rifle, tanks and artillery.
    So if we, God forbid, provoked them to a hysterical dollar arms race, then this is the best we could do with our enemies - to make them self-destruct on our own.
