So when does NATO start spending to help us pay for all our equipment?
Yeah, ok, keep telling yourself that. Yes
As for the consent for bases, no kidding, really? You mean we had to get permission to put bases on foreign soil? Who would have guessed that! That doesn't give the people we have alliances with the right to dictate our military policy to us.

Haha, I've got friends in the Civil Air Patrol that are waiting with baited breath for the A-10 to be decommissioned because they're hoping the A-10 will be reassigned as a civilian patrol craft.
Some of them are like "Yea, if they just take that gun out it'd make a great slow-flying search and rescue aircraft."
I'm pretty sure you can't just take the gun out of the A-10, as far as I'm aware the A-10 was pretty much designed like this.
"Hey, we designed this giant gatling gun the size of a volkswagen, what should we do with it?"
"Build an airplane around it."
