Military Spending & Reduction
After ending our wars in the Middle East, we have to take a look at how our military is being used. My believe is that the ground troops should be used only in limited use. The terrorist type of fighting will only continue to get our men and women killed and disfigured and this is NOT acceptable to me. Going after and killing Oasma Bin Ladan was not worth the price we paid for American deaths and their bodies being torn in pieces that they have to live with today. His death was not ever worth one American death. It is a disgrace that we went there and even more of a disgrace that we are still there. I don't know how the President and Congress can sleep at night, knowing that at anytime a member of our Armed Forces could be killed or maimed.
Limited air strikes, as we have done in the past, the latest being in Libya, will not get anything accomplished. When will we learn that? When you do something, you have to have an end result in mind, not just to "hope" this works.
The Armed Forces needs to be reduced and we need to focus on "America First and Foremost". This reduction has to be with the consent of Congress and the Commanders of each Branch of Service as the Commanders have a better understand of what can be done and in what areas. Our involvement in the world affairs has to be rethought.
