US spending on operations abroad most of all the defense budget of Russia

89
The US Congress approved part of the expenditure plan (budget) for the current year. We are still talking about approving the amount of 1,3 trillion dollars (this is not the whole budget-2018). If the congressmen had not voted to approve this part of the budget, the US federal government would have been in an extremely difficult situation in terms of implementing the announced projects.


It is noteworthy that the lion’s share of the amount approved by the US Congress is military spending. Moreover, these expenses, as stated in the United States themselves, are a record for the last time.

US spending on operations abroad most of all the defense budget of Russia


Thus, the US Congress allocates billions of dollars to 700 directly for "defense". In addition, $ 10,1 billion is allocated to military construction projects. Almost another 185,5 billion dollars will be used to service the needs of the Department of Veterans Affairs (pensions, social benefits).

It is intended to increase the money allowance of US military personnel by 2,4%, by 21% to increase funding in the field of defense research and development, as well as in military procurement.

During the discussion of the financing of the Pentagon, the head of the committee on the armed forces of the US House of Representatives, Mac Thornberry, said:
We too long asked our troops to do more at lower costs, which was detrimental not only to our army and its equipment, but also to the whole country. President Trump is right in insisting on restoring full-scale funding for military personnel. Our today's step does a lot for this.


It is known that over 65 billions of US dollars are planned to be spent on military operations abroad. For comparison: this is more than the entire defense budget of Russia.

          Russia's tragic mistake will be drawn into an arms race with the United States. The economic strength of the two countries is not comparable and the previous attempt to maintain parity with America was worth the collapse of the USSR. The presence of a variety of nuclear weapons in Russia guarantees non-aggression of America on it. If I were a Russian, I would prefer instead of the T-14 and SU-57 to catch up with the West in terms of child mortality, life expectancy, road conditions, welfare, and integrity of the courts and prosecutors

            no one is drawn in, the opposite effect is observed_ the West is trying to catch up with us in quality; The Soviet Union collapsed for completely different reasons; just in medicine, the West has caught up with the Soviet Union’s indicators only now, the Russian Federation will catch up, only the naive can doubt it, only the stupid Russian Federation can deny this 28 years old, given the decline of the 90s and even less; replace the concepts of security with a social room, a favorite dish of the fifth column, do not take their bread. for if there is no Su57 with T14_ then there will be nothing. in our history we already had a kind of wise guy called Khrushchev, I completely killed all the achievements of the scientific research institute, because we have rockets, it came back to us that we had to become a catch-up leader.

              What? Russia lags behind the West both technologically and financially, how many SU-57s fly and how many F-35s. Feel the difference. We will talk about the Vanguard and other things when they become operational and whether they exist at all.

              just the same, in medicine, the West caught up with the USSR indicators only now

              Medicine in the USSR and in the West had its advantages and disadvantages; high-quality medicine in the USSR was accessible to everyone. And in the West, quality medicine costs a lot of money.

                about the backwardness, well, I’ll not discuss this nonsense. Yes, no, you’re kidding me, I can even admit that quite sincerely_ the whole social group in the West began to rise and align exactly with ours, in order to avoid riots of fermentation in society. Youk and Ikaryok, this is nonsense, as far as I can remember, I did not observe any problems with this. in general, no words.
                e, colleague, but you don’t need to play such games with me_ while I wrote the answer to the nonsense, you cleaned up the commentary. No, not an eagle, not a serious one.

                Regarding your first lie, it’s enough to look at the development of social programs in the West starting from the 70s, in order to understand that they copied our system. your second lie_ means that at that moment, it was in this technologically that the West was ahead of us, no one denies that Meditsyna, as a separate part of the social system, is primarily a science. and because of this, at that moment the West has worshiped us, but! you distort everything for your own excuse, read the amended comment Viktor.12.71 quite revealingly.

                      It seems like in order to avoid these shocks it was enough to have the same thing as in the most advanced country in the world where the power of workers, peasants and labor intelligentsia triumphed laughing

                        let's go in order (well, you are a boring person). 1. stop, I did not say that this is done in the district hospitals; I must admit that I didn’t read the last word “in the West”, I thought an example from Israel. hence the question, are you really sure that there are hospitals in the regional centers of the West, how many of them, if any, eh? no one touches Israel while you are quietly behaving.
                        so now I don’t understand the point in your comment: is this an example from a zarada, or from Israel? your colleague writes one thing, you say the other, nonsense. there is a good joke about your “do not touch Israel“. the visitor enters the restaurant, they say: closed. he: that is, you do not let me in? answer: yes, it’s closed. the visitor continues: do not let Potgma in, that I am a Jew? they look at him in amazement, repeating: closed. and the visitor: well, because I am a Jew? ... so I ask, is it an example from Israel or not? 2. right up to the 70s. gg, that is, until the end of 60 in your west there were virtually no social. guarantees for workers. about an order of magnitude higher, yes, by the mid-80s, the social package was not in the whole west, in individual countries it was higher. but not everyone got it, that's where the catch is. 3. on the input of your "shrenavam", again I recommend reading a little.

              Why is Russia 28 years old !? No. Russia has a thousand-year history !!! The guarantor himself voices this and to whom do you not know this! These are just the names changing! Do you remember the anthem of the USSR? Even in it, not Russia, but Russia sounds, which has united forever! And you don’t have to believe it, otherwise the young people still believe that our country is 30 years old. hi

I explain the meaning of what was said precisely about the growth of a practically collapsed economy, after which everything else will go up. that’s what I said it to.

                    most likely you are well informed in this matter. what can I say, the gold and foreign exchange reserve mediocrely missed the last leadership along with the economy. and everything else unfolded from the end of the 80s to the beginning of the 90s_ robbery of both the state, the natural resources, and the citizens themselves. it is so, verratse. and your question is drawn to a separate, extensive theory.

                      Profukalo! For example, myself, I will say this! In 2000, at those prices and salaries, I bought exactly the same amount of goods as in 2017 at the prices and salaries of this year! Ie nothing has grown! Only in 2000 could this afford more people than in 2017 ... this is certainly off topic, but in 2017 there are more people living below the poverty line! Accordingly, the money of these people, somewhere flowed away! There are more billionaires and more poor! I have a question for you, why do you think that money will appear in medicine, as well as in education? In the United States, with their volume of economy, they can afford to spend such amounts, even taking into account corruption, because the money supply, in principle, does not leak anywhere! I do not deify them, but I do not support your optimism! I apologize for the confusion, I am writing from the phone, a little uncomfortable ... hi

                        it's all about the leak of foreign currency abroad. small by small the issue is being decided on this money. in addition, circular sanctions that escalated into an economic war, another important milestone, a massive brain drain in the 90s. and again I repeat_ the robbery, by means of which we have the conveyor system of millionaires. but it is precisely your observation of the 2000s and 2017x_ that is a direct consequence of eq. war against us. in general, looking ahead I can say that we have a lot of work ahead of us according to the laws and the composition of the Cabinet, and much more. big is the topic. There will be an opportunity, it will certainly undergo heated discussion.

Yes, as a control to the head: in the Union, the social package guaranteed workers free trips to hospitals and abroad. I have not heard or read that you have practiced this. But the fact that apartments were issued to employees? so really, as colleague Andrei K said, let's go back to the news topic.

The presence of a variety of nuclear weapons in Russia guarantees non-aggression of America on it. If I were a Russian, I would prefer instead of the T-14 and SU-57 to catch up with the West in terms of child mortality, life expectancy, road conditions, welfare, and integrity of the courts and prosecutors

        Base base is different. Geldings really have a ton of bases. Everything is fine - just that, but they are here - in place. But there is a but.
        1. Rummage on the Internet and look at the costs of logistics. There the hair stand on end.
        The lion's share of the Pentagon’s costs is just logistics, delivery of the notorious Coca-Cola or toilet paper, from the manufacturer to the bases scattered around the world. There is no money left to develop new weapons. Look - when did the geldings adopt something new?
        2. All this Merinskaya power is so spread across the globe that they are not able to pull out a single large-scale war, since they are a thin layer everywhere. As a result, the geldings do not even take weeks - months to assemble a shock fist in a short time !!!

          Everything is as if true. But I have a question, but how is it all the easier for Russia. The United States has the initiative and this is important, and the amount of money spent on aircraft for them does not play a big role. And the ability to always tighten the satellites, too, cannot be reset.

      The presence of expenses does not mean the quality of execution. The system of kickbacks in the US defense industry is such that our embezzlers cannot dream of super slobbery dreams. We add here the total gouging of the performers and get a zilch at the output.
      What far to go - Syria in all its glory. They sucked in their shirts so much that Mama Do not Cry. They ate them themselves, gave manual animals to devour - the result, the Russians came and the whole configuration fell like a house of cards.
      Arms are written off by wagons, stolen, they get there, they just disappear without reaching their destination (as was the case in Afghanistan). And if they put in their trinkets, it's not a fact that the animals will not give up or resell.

          I’m talking about this very thing. You can boast about the budget level as much as you like, but you need to look at the result - and the result is obvious. Merino feeds affiliated with the management, all sorts of transport companies, theft in this chain is simply prohibitive. At the same time, the most powerful army in the world cannot afford not only that there is nothing to replace the new tank with morally obsolete small arms with.
          Take yesterday, in my opinion, the news - on considering the use of Soviet (Russian) weapons in the ILC !!!
          If we, someone, even suggested that we consider the use of let's say AR-10 in parts of the Airborne Forces, we would send him at least under the white arms and go straight to a psychiatrist.

              So that you are not very sad:
              Merino have aircraft carriers, put them into operation regularly. The question is why do we need it. If we are a state located in Eurasia. Marine gigantomania is not an indicator at all. The same Americans compared the capabilities of Russia's missile weapons with regard to their AUGs and came to one sad idea - Russia with a penny crowbar, would smash the expensive Mercedes to shreds. The Americans are now sad.
              In aviation - quantitatively yes, there are more mattress aircraft. Qualitatively - no, mattress aircraft are becoming obsolete, there is nothing to replace. Rather, there is something - the 22nd and 35th. 22nd discontinued - expensive even for mattresses. The 35th is stamped, it is likely that something will come out of it. But while it is damp, sores climb out of it.
              With microelectronics, yes, we had problems. Slowly, with a creak, we came to understand that we needed our own. We’re trying to move something.
              There is reason for sadness, there is reason for pride. Life does not stand still hi

                Well, our Su 57s will not be much cheaper (it seems to me that our military-industrial complex will come to the conclusion that if you do some thread with progressive things, it will cost no less than our Western “friends”) not a few, and our 35th did not go through a relatively massive construction and not the fact that there will not be the same problems with them as with our Gorshkov.
                What kind of penny scrap are you talking about? As for me, this crowbar was supposed to be apr 885, but they are far from cheap. And from their number, tears welling up and not even their number, but the purchase plan is very upsetting. Yes, and it will somehow be a long time to sink the PCR aircraft carrier with conventional warheads, it’s necessary there immediately, and this is a serious argument for the answer.
                And here was a series of articles: A sad look at the future ...

                Well, I would also like to add that without a strong and modern economy there will be no strong army. We should like to let more military developments into civilian life (and no, I do not mean cases when the space industry enterprises made strollers). I just want the standard of living not equal to Europe with the United States, but to the Russian Federation. Yes, I mixed here recourse
                I’ll probably say now that I’m very seditious, but maybe a more liberal policy should be pursued (unfortunately, the words “liberal” and “democratic” in the Russian Federation, after the dashing 90s, became synonymous with devastation and lawlessness, but initially they contained a slightly different meaning) so that more private companies appeared because they are often more “agile” than state giants and so that the government is a little afraid of the people (and this is not to relax there), and this is so that it remembers its main obligations (a country for the people) and works. Maybe then a certain culture of government will appear. Yes, this is not often seen in democratic countries, but I have such pink dreams.

              Well, there the attitude is a little different to the soldier. Personally, I think that the state was created to serve the people. And the state hires people to protect the state. And if a person is going to substitute the most expensive thing on this planet (for everything can be made or done except for a lost life), then he has every right to demand for himself everything that is prescribed in the contract.
              It’s just that today a conversation just started about footcloths (he fought in Chechnya, a military man to the brain and bones) and socks. To which he said that footcloths are much better than socks. To my objection: Americans live normally with socks and do not complain, he replied that it is not worth comparing their supply and ours. There, in the Navy, they are obliged to serve a can of beer every week (I'm not sure about this, if you know, enlighten). Well, there everything is written in the contract, and if the state does not fulfill its obligations, then from what fright should a person substitute his life? There should be mutual respect.
              So it seems to me that if the Russians treated the state a little more consumerly, then the state would have to be more attentive to their citizens. Well, this is my personal opinion.

                So, never ask this bad question. Now you’ll think about - and why I, the state gave me nothing in return. And tomorrow the same as you pass by when you need help - because the state does not pay for its patriotic impulse.

The idea of ​​not surrendering sounds cool, on the other hand, he can’t do anything anymore, and he will be able to return after the war and bring benefit to society (here the ratio of losses in the Second World War is especially upsetting ...)

                    There is nothing complicated at all: the surrender of all the peoples of our country is an indelible disgrace and loss of honor. Everything is simple. There are different cases, but we don’t have a cult of surrender - that's for sure.

    The US Congress approved part of the expenditure plan (budget) for the current year. We are still talking about approving the amount of 1,3 trillion dollars (this is not the whole budget-2018). If the congressmen had not voted to approve this part of the budget, the US federal government would have been in an extremely difficult situation in terms of implementing the announced projects.

    An example of American logistics - bottled drinking water was transported from Kyrgyzstan to Afghanistan, through many passes over a distance of 2000 or more kilometers. As far as I heard, now they are also being taken from somewhere far away. Apparently they are afraid that the Afghans will mix dung in their water.

    The Soviet Union collapsed for completely different reasons; just the same, in medicine, the West caught up with the USSR indicators only now.

    Do you believe in your nonsense? Living behind the Iron Curtain in the USSR, we all mistakenly believed that the level of medicine and technology was very high ...
    On a trip abroad, my tooth ached, I went to the doctor.
    The doctor was amazed to see a metal crown - in the West then, for many years, when they refused this poison.
    I asked Analgin for pain, he was even more surprised, because Analgin, already like 40 years old was banned by WHO, - it was dangerous to health.
    The Soviet Union was 50 years behind the level of Western medicine.

    it's all about the leak of foreign currency abroad. small by small the issue is being decided on this money. in addition, circular sanctions that escalated into an economic war, another important milestone, a massive brain drain in the 90s. and again I repeat_ the robbery, by means of which we have the conveyor system of millionaires. but it is precisely your observation of the 2000s and 2017x_ that is a direct consequence of eq. war against us. in general, looking ahead I can say that we have a lot of work ahead of us according to the laws and the composition of the Cabinet, and much more. big is the topic. There will be an opportunity, it will certainly undergo heated discussion.


    Then I completely agree with you! Another question is why the money withdrawn to the west does not accelerate inflation there, which they always say to us ?! We drive gas, oil, a certain percentage remains in the economy, which was brought out by workers from neighboring countries, corrupt officials, through affiliated banks! According to them, work is being done, it is clear! Something settles in the garages! And the rest pour into debt papers! And they lay there dead weight! But they do not disperse inflation, in the same America!

    An interesting U-turn. Homeland - You do not owe anything, from the word in general. You really do not want people to pass by in your misfortune and at the same time question the feasibility of the Constitution, which, by the way, in addition to the sacred duty of protecting the Motherland, also secures your right to life and so on.

    Well, do not modify my words about the appropriateness of the Constitution - I did not say this, but said that I did not agree with some points.
    As for the fact that it does not owe us anything - if citizens are obliged to protect the state, then this also obliges the other side (i.e. the state) to fulfill their obligations. It seems to me that this should be mutual. So the state still owes its citizens (for without them there would be no state, and the converse is not true).
    Quote: Andrey K
    Defending the Homeland is a debt without payment.

    But it seems to me that such a price (or sacrifice), as the life of its citizens, should be the highest value for the state, which must be "cherished and cherished" and can not be scattered because without citizens there will be no state.
    And of course, this should be highly rewarded.

    Yes, the opinions we have with you are fundamentally different.

    I agree with you, but it’s also interesting (at least for me) when there are many points of view.
    In the end, I would like to add, well, this is purely my opinion that the state is nothing more than a union of people created to protect interests. Probably as a tribe, but only very large. And I proceed from the fact that inside this system everything should be aimed at achieving good for as many people as possible. And I think that a little more objective relations within the state will benefit everyone because the system, which is the key to the well-being of the majority, will be protected by this majority.
    But again, this is personally my humble opinion)))
