First, those of you who think we should cut military spending are clueless. Freedom isn't free. If everyone in the world thought like us, then we could cut it. But, they don't.... It's like the plains of the Serengeti, there is the prey, and the predator. We cut, over time we become weak, we become prey. The regimes that are led by sociopaths, they respect only strength. ISIS would rather us become the sheep that many of you would like us to become. Why? Because we would be easier to kill! That's how they think. Once you understand that is the way the world works, then you might get it, or you can keep your head buried in the sand. Oh, and I'm a retired Marine LtCol... I've had to kill people who murder children, trying to get Iraqi fathers to fight us. Peace through strength, welcome to reality!
