Military Review

Obama said he would not sign the draft of the new military budget of the United States, approved by Congress

32
US President Barack Obama announced that he would not sign the new military budget of the country. Obama explained his decision by saying that the draft of the new military budget includes an increase in defense spending by about 90 billions of dollars. It should be noted that the draft military budget for the 2016 year was approved by both houses of the US Congress, in which the majority today belongs to the Republicans.


Obama quotes news agency Rider:
I'm going to send it (draft budget) back to Congress. My wish (to Congress) looks very simple: let's do everything right. We are at the main stage of the discussion of the military budget. Let the budget be one that meets national security as effectively as the economic one.


Part of the increase in spending in the new US military budget corresponded to military aid to Ukraine. The amount that Washington planned to send to Kiev was 300 million dollars. In this regard, Kiev has to switch to nervous waiting mode - will the Americans send a third of a billion to the military budget of Ukraine or not?



The total expenditure of the US military budget was set at more than 612 billion dollars. These are the biggest spending on the military sphere among all countries of the world.

    It doesn’t matter, Obama’s veto will bypass Congress with 2/3 of the vote, as was the case recently with arms supplies to Ukraine.

        No, here he is right. Investing in the country's defense is right, and it is wasteful in military assistance to other countries. With any decision, the US is losing. They will cut the budget, and lackeys like Ukraine will remain without free aid. They will accept the budget, you see, maybe the US economy will burst from exertion.

          In the USA, by the way, in the mid-2000s, the defense budget began to grow strongly, before that it had not grown so much (screenshot is clickable).

              You just look at what amounts are laid down for the purchase of weapons from Saudi Arabia, and which go to combat training of troops. There is an imbalance of about percent 300%

    Very interesting news. I don’t know what influenced the American president, but his words about the economic feasibility of the military budget are first heard at such a high level. I wonder how everything will end, and whether there will be financial injections to Ukraine.

    Something like this, wait, see, Dear colleagues. hi

      You, Dear Vlad, are somewhat categorical. Obama does not have a majority in Congress, so the case is certainly not ordinary, but it is unlikely to be expected to make any special progress regarding changes in US policy in Ukraine.

      Something like this, Dear. hi

      What are the realities? All this is a game for the public, they will all accept. And the ceiling of the public debt will rise in a month, for decency a little straitened. The printing press will be launched - and business then. But if the Chinese stop buying bonds - then yes, it’s a matter of seams

    There are three versions of what is happening:
    1 mind moved
    2. breaks down like a girl
    3. Nobel for the struggle for peace (wants a second)

    pisi:
    The first two can be thrown back, and so he does not shine with his mind and for a long time is not whole ...

    The dreams and fantasies of Ukraine were again ruthlessly trampled. Understand, finally, Svidomo fools, for the sake of Ukraine no one will voluntarily climb into the noose. All these subsidies and subsidies do not fundamentally change anything. Ukraine is like a dead poultice. Just pull the end.

    And the United States cannot do otherwise. Their dollar is only supported by the fact that everyone considers the United States a strong military power that can fill its face in case of anything. In addition to the performance of power, they have nothing more. Only by this they, in fact, rob other countries borrowing money from them without return. This is only why the countries being robbed do not send them to hell.

    The last political game of the Dark Lord begins. His budget there ends, on the 3rd of my November. And he needs to be allowed to increase public debt again. And then the military budget. That is the reason for bargaining. He will sign it after he has pushed the frontier of the state debt. Well, a little sprinkle of saliva on top of each other - not without it.

    Obama wants to emphasize his importance. It seems that he had some other plans for these 90 billion. I wonder which ones?
    And 300 million for Ukraine will be found not in the military budget, but in another "wallet of the Ministry of Foreign Interventions."

    Ponte is cheap. Everyone understands that you can’t save on security. It’s as if Obama would give up the armored car before the fight, referring to the fact that he would save on it. They do not save on health. I think they will accept it, they will accept it even in an enlarged version. They have something to lose and they are afraid to lose it, especially when they do not have to sleep peacefully, because there is such a mysterious comrade as Russia who is muddying again.

    There was once a transmission that the cost of security in the United States often conceals other costs. Those who do not want to advertise. So the possibilities for saving are very different.

    The defense is definitely cut. The question is, in which place?
    Either we cut new weapons, or we cut old weapons.
    I won’t talk about the conclusion of the bases, I think.

    In terms of political caricature in the article, we can say that the veto was not “imposed”, but “imposed”. And yet, the size of the US military budget is amazing. War monster! But no matter how he ended up on clay feet.
