The Military Budget

 
 
Reply Thu 22 Jul, 2021 06:28 pm
The Biden-Harris Administration today submitted to Congress the President’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 Budget request of $752.9 billion for national defense, $715 billion of which is for the Department of Defense (DOD). The FY 2022 Defense Budget submission reflects President Biden’s priorities to end the “forever wars,” invest in cutting-edge capabilities for our military and national security advantage in the future, and revitalize America’s unmatched network of alliances and partnerships.

That's 25 billion more. Next year I expect them to just hand over all of our money and beg for an allowance every month for Social Security and other necessities.

@edgarblythe,
Good idea, I'm sure I don't know where they're getting all the money they are giving away.

@roger,
It seems that every country is in debt to one country or another or several. It boggles the mind, mine not being a financial one.

@Mame,
I don't even pretend to understand our federal reserve banking system.

Bernie Sanders: “We’re troubled that no one in the [Pentagon] sought the required legal authorization from Congress for Tuesday’s drone strike in Somalia especially with no American forces at risk—and apparently, did not even check with our commander-in-chief.”

@edgarblythe,
Thanks. That’s worrisome. Especially the part where the Pentagon is trying to use some convoluted loophole of “collective self defense” to rationalize not getting clearance from the White House.

I’m real interested to see what Psaki or Biden come up with as an answer to this. Or if they respond to it at all.

@snood,
It's the kind of thinking that destabilized the middle east when Bush was president. I've seen Tweets about all the oil in that place. Which reminds me that Trump seized oil wells in Syria and I haven't seen where Biden gave them back.

That might be a leftover policy from the Trump Administration.

Mr. Trump told the military to just dronestrike whoever they wanted to without bothering him with the details.

Does this mean that the coward is going to abandon South Korea as well?

I would feel better about the forever wars if they would put a uniform on people like oralloy and send them to do the fighting.

That would almost be an unfair advantage, unleashing a courageous, firearms-expert, warrior like him on our enemies.

Hey, it might bring conflicts to a quick end though - because, you know, he’d be so fierce and kill so many.
