    the US spends more on military than all other nations in the world put together

    first i'd like to say go yuo! :ugh2:

    and kinda sad you could barely take on Iraq and Afghanistan at the same time - let alone if NK decided to throw a few bombs your way

    I think that much of this money is funnelled into the pockets of rich and powerful americans who own the companies that get the military contracts, making them more rich, and more powerful when they sell those weapons to other countries... seriously how the fuck can you spend 300 billion and get so little (so where the fuck is OBL again?- just thought id throw that in there :hsugh: )

    and before someone says something about this being a bush hating thread.... ALL your corrupt ass politicians are to blame, dem vs rep. is like coke vs pepsi, who really gives a shit who is on top, its basically the same crap and the market benefits from the fight


    way to make the world a shittier place USA!

    :ugh: 300 billion does go a long way. Hell if we wanted to destroy every city in Iraq by bombing them we could do it. Military might isnt about being able to destroy a shitload of things. It takes time to strategically get the mission accomplished and not kill thousands of fucking innocent civilians :madfawk:

    Well, to be honest, we beat the fuck out of both Afghanistan and Iraq in record time. Our big money military did the job extraordinarily well.

    The occupation part isn't going as well, but having lots of money and good armament doesn't help quite as much in that department.

    What, you getting owned? We spend more than the rest of the world combined. And what are the results? The ability to topple a dictator in an extremly short period of time. And we are struggling now because we are taking serious caution to avoid civilian casualties. And I beg you to name one military that would have fared better in Afghanistan/Iraq :hsugh:

    We train our armies as a weapon, not a peacekeeping force.
