Key word, defense. And it can be done for less than half what we spend today.

I say we keep the A-10s, but get rid of the B-52s.



....but on a serious note, it'd be nice if the USMC, USAF, USA, and USN could agree on some of the same equipment to save on money. I know I'm going to piss some vets off, but why can't all branches where the same work/battle uniform? Costs of development aside, I think the F-35 is a good idea. One aircraft, some modifications, but used by the USAF, USN, and USMC.

Let's start small and end our illegal wars of aggression, and close all bases that are outside of the US.

Great... I agree, when we focus just on our own defense let me know.

I wasn't arguing pro or con on how the military is used, only that it is one of the few constitutional duties of the Federal government provided for by the Constitution.

As far as the A10 goes, I only meant that a relatively cheap and proven weapons platform is being ditched for an unproven (and that is being very very kind to the F35) and ridiculously expensive system. That is bad for us the tax payer.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

I agree, they should scrap the f35 too.

Didn't they waste a ton of money on the F-22s too, and now they aren't even making them any more? I think they didn't even build as many as they wanted to.

Do you realize that out of control military spending is why the US is under crushing debt, and the real destruction of the US?

It ain't illegals, welfare, social security, education, Obama care, gays, or any other boogeyman that the right likes to invent to deflect your attention from the military industrial complex.

The military needs to be cut in half, at least, and returned to it's constitutional duty.

Correct me if Im wrong Justin but did I blame any programs for the cuts? NO. We have the best military in the world because of the money we spend. Stop going into places like the middle east and other regions we dont belong in. THAT is where the big money goes. The A10 is a infantry mans best friend in close air support., they work very well. If we didnt spend money on R&D we wouldnt have the best of just about every thing on the field.

Killing it is not akin to "systematic destruction" as you put it. I guess I missed the point of you saying that.

No you got my point. I just used the A10 has a platform to get my point out. Diminishing our military is a foolish move. The world is just as, if not more dangerous now than it was during the cold war. You were in the Navy on a sub. Would you rather have been down there in the state of the art sub you were in or some sub standard POS? These cuts go a bit too far for me. Maintain a force large enough to scare the hell out of any potential adversary and stay on the cutting edge of R&D.
