Keeping them going, and they need to be stopped, so to hell with Afghanistan we invade Iran terrorist start shitting them selves and the wars over. They hate America and there just keeping them selves on the good side by arming innocent civilians of Afghan and Iraq!, Iran needs to be shown a lesson and ******* example of what happens when a country steps out of line, America did it too Japan and they'll ******* do it again!

I speculate that it quite is using the fact they're all too petrified of the protection foyer which will quickly funnel a good number of money to their combatants and examine out to make all of us think of they're traitors in the event that they attempt to shrink protection in any way. the present budget issues are not any diverse from the previous, different than the quantities are turning out to be and we've an turning out to be older inhabitants. If we don't initiate having a good number of youngsters, or immigrating youthful workers, the variety of retirees will finally exceed the variety of workers paying employment taxes that help them. Sweden is in this occasion and their taxes are very severe even although their protection tension is for little greater effective than parades (I knew a Swedish officer who might disagree, yet they have not certainly fought all people in view that Napoleon). We spend as a lot by way of fact something of the worldwide blended on our protection tension, so our allies do not could. we could continually not be predicted to foot the fees to be the worldwide's police that guard Europe, Asia and Africa. we want a 30 3 hundred and sixty 5 days plan to shrink our protection to in effortless terms what's mandatory to guard this continent. Obama has shrink greater protection projects than any President in view that Eisenhower, however the ten new $14 billion Gerald Ford type airplane carriers we've ordered, and a sparkling anti-ballistic missile equipment (to help Europe!) are actually not likely to make us somewhat greater look after against terrorists who hijack airplanes with a field cutters, and Bush's attempt to get the Russians right into a sparkling chilly war with the aid of abrogating the ABM Treaty would fool some people into questioning we want those, yet we don't.

/ The people of those countries benefit from the wars financially. After those wars, America helps to rebuild those nations with new infrastructures, schools and housing as well as water, sewer and electricity plants.
It has been that way from America since WW2. America rebuilt Europe, Japan, Viet Nam, South Korea, Iraq once before, and will help rebuild those countries as well as helping Pakistan (thanks to bombing from Obama).
