It is pure BS that Obama is responsible for the deficit and weakening of our military.



You are right, Obama didn't weaken our military, he decimated it.


The same thing happened in Europe too. 2010 onwards the UK military was completely crippled. Mainland Europe is no better. Getting worse and worse if Germany is anything to go by.

But are these weapons the cause? Nope.


They aren't a deterrent either.

The truth is, we don't know. What we have are campaign speeches right now.

And if we're going to believe one, then we might as well believe all of them. Every politician everywhere in the country at every time has had the solution to solve all our problems.

Yet here we are. Still with problems.

Since it's Trump, everyone is panicking about the end of the world. Odd, people said the same thing about Reagan.

As for foreign policy? Trumps biggest opponent Hillary Clinton has a record of foreign policy.

She's had people killed.
Created ISIS.
Ignored ISIS.
Enabled Boko Harum.
And
Her Clinton Foundation has received billions from foreign leaders during her tenure as Sec. State.

that war talk will scare all the mothers, from voting for Donald....I'll send my kids off when Trumps kids join up will be their response.



Americans are weary of war. This hawkish attitude won't help Trump.

Showing strength is a deterrent.
People are not going to mess with a formidable country.

formidable is not equal to warmongering

Breath of fresh air. It's time we stop apologizing to the world and asking forgiveness for existing. I believe we would be in much more danger if Cruz were to become Prez, for example, just because of his apocalyptic beliefs. Or how about Hillary? She would just blunder ineptly into it. Or how about right now? The entire world knows Obama is a wuss and won't defend anything. They rattle their sabers and the US does nothing but lament what a big military it has. (Obama's exact words.) And thank God Trump is defending Israel! It's about time. Great speech. Hope we hear a lot more of them.

I think I should get my red, white, and blue Pom Pom's and go Rah! Rah!

He presents some ideas, but no real plan or solution.

He's against the Iraq war, but never mentions Bush. Everything is Obama and Clinton's fault.

He does say some things I agree with, but doesn't really say how he's going to accomplish it.

He has not swayed me to trust that he can be president.

I would like to see someone give him a position in politics to see what he does with it. Not the "big shot leader" position, but one that requires working with others on an equal level to see how he works with others.

OK

I'm finished.

A lot of exclamations, promises and declarations. Preceded by many truths.

I still don't trust him. But hey, I never trusted Obama or Hillary, Bush, Clinton, or my cousin Vinny.

I think the Hillary Campaign will now change their stance on foreign policy.

Watch for her (in her raspy whiskey voice) to start a pro military agenda.

Right up her alley to confront Trump.

9/11 happened because of failed 1990s Clinton policies.

I'd call that a Chosen Perception of what you want to believe.

The main strength of the US by the end of WWII besides then nukes, was the ability to out supply any nation on earth in producing war material. Our industries have been made almost nonexistent. It is spoken of in economy terms but what do you think happens to all of the car manufacturing plants when all out war happens? They pump out military vehicles after a quick conversion. Shipyards pump out supply ships and warships at unbelievable rates. Can't happen today, the politicians sent it all to the scrap yards of China and trade deals were made that sent industry out of the country. It's as if a long term plan to dismantle the US has taken place, something inconceivable to Truman and Eisenhower in their day.

Trump knows what he is talking about when he says making America great again. The shortsighted won't get it and the hate America crowd cannot stand to see their gains get taken back in the orange glow of a patriotic candidate the people are rallying to.

Do you really think we're a "boots on the ground" war anymore?

I don't.

I'd say we need technology and intelligence.

The democrats probably love Trumps hawkish speeches too. I don't think wanting to send more troops back to the ME is going to be a way for Trump to win support from a largely moderate electorate. imo it could sink his chances at the presidency.

No, lots get it. They also get that it won't happen without a fight (economical), which the US will lose.

You know what is extremely hard? Building a high tech manufacturing industry when the countries that supply the resources required no longer wish to sell them to you. Which is where the US currently sits.

Trump can bluff and bluster all he wants, it won't change the fact that we exist in a global supply chain, and we are all dependent on, including the US.

Good point!

Apparently you didn't watch the video? Trump addressed that!

I'll even help you out! Go to 21.40 on the video!

That is an irrelevant point in response to what I'm saying. Get your partisan hack posting out of here.

That is a bunch of bull, we protect the shipping lanes of the worlds energy supply, that alone is a bargaining chip to get whatever we need in fair trade.

Lol. This sentence, "we protect the shipping lanes of the worlds energy supply, that alone is a bargaining chip to get whatever we need in fair trade" screams anything BUT fair trade. Sounds more like coercive trade to me.
