Now timeout for a second!! Now if we where getting Bombed,Nuclear Attacked,Etc and was being attacked by Russia,China,North korea,and a few other small countries then that would mean that we will be out numbered greatly within our military and would very much need the assistance of other countries.So that's why it's great to keep strong military ties with some of our foreign allies(The Countries that we would greatly benefit assistance from) and most all of our presidents did this but our last few have given away and donating trillions and trillions of our tax dollars away.Now that's when the big difference step in to play.Just paint a big picture into a small brain with a little research and there you would have it.That's the importance of our Military Assistance.Hello?

‘Today I authorized the Armed Forces of the United States to begin a limited military action in Libya in support of an international effort to protect Libyan civilians.”
Straight from the mouth of Obama himself.
I Certainly Hope So.The first 8 years of this fast track down didn't upset people enough and the next 5 years here have upset people but they aren't allowed to be upset without it being attirubuted to something else.
I REPEAT "The countries that we would Greatly benefit from'' are the ones we need to keep strong military ties with.''You stratch my back'' and ''I stratch your back''.You don't stratch my back then I will jus deal with China with my oil,"THE HECK WITH THE US" is basically whats also steaming up with our foreign countries such as the upcoming deal between Russia and China that's suppose to be introduced in May! Strong Military Allies is a basic necessity!!
