So how much is still being spent on the defence forces after the cut ? that to me is the real question..
if they are cutting 9 billion and still spending like 60 billion, then its not as bad as it sounds..
I see where your coming from, but someones got to take the plunge to stop war, make the first steps..
If you help people instead of fight with them you end up with allies, not a group of people who want to over throw you at a later date, because you
messed up their country by getting involved in a war..
so heres an article that helps a bit
as you can see after the cuts over the next few years they still would be spending 190 billion on defence....
not your average amount of pocket change is it..
