Six Important Facts Highlight Why We Need to Rebuild Our Military
No need for another cup of coffee this morning…just read this piece produced by the Daily Signal on our military and it’s standing and you’ll be ready to scream!
The United States gives billions of dollars away each year to other countries while “taking” billions of dollars away from our military! Our elected officials’ spending habits are completely out of control ( U.S. national debt nearing 20 trillion dollars ). How in the world can any member of Congress not realize that our nations security is arguably #1 on the list of things they need to make sure is happening?
The Daily Signal points out 6 undeniable facts about our military’s situation. For example: the Army is at it’s smallest level since WW II, the Marine Corps is pulling parts off of Museum planes to be re-used, the Air Force is cannibalizing parts from some F-16’s to keep other F-16’s flying, and our B-52 Bombers are an average age of 53 years old!
These facts are indeed the results of our national defense budget being cut 25% over the last 5 years.
At the same time, threats are growing. Russia has invaded Ukraine and threatens more. China is building illegal islands. Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapon and North Korea already has one. And we also face the real threat of terrorism and the growing threat of cyberattacks.
Once again, this isn’t a Democrat or Republican issue. This is about providing the resources needed to our military so they can be successful defending Americans. All Americans; red, brown, yellow, black and white, those with money, and those without money.
Members of Congress… please get your act together on this most important issue.
