    What are everyones thoughts on Military Budget.

    Srry for any none americans but this is semi old topic but was thinking about it was wondering what your views are on it. Because all sorts of cuts in any kinda military or police. I mean the jobs don't provide as much as they use to and its severly impacted how many people we can have in the military.

    what i don't like is the obscene amount of money paid to purchase weapons and vehicles due to contracts, then the military decides to pay the soldiers beans.

    An E1 (lowest rank and pay) gets about 18k a year. Also gets free room and board, and benefits.
    Not exactly beans.

    Well thats what they are paying but they still have to keep up with a budget and soon the military won't be able to pay that amount for people if gov't continues to lower the funding for the military

    Lowering the military fund is good. It forces the US to decide on what affairs go enter, instead of trying to be the global police.

    There was actually a raise recently across the board.

    Well, the military service is supposed to not give you a luxury life. You go to military for security, stability and patriotism, not because you get payed to build a mansion every 3 months

    yes but with cuts to the budget it does weaken are overall combat effectiveness later. exspecially with all the turmoil going on.

    Yeah, but that also means our presence in the world declines, which forces every other nation that's having problems balancing their budgets already to spend more on military.

    The reason we were able to come out on top in world war 2 was because of our industrial base... which is collapsing and being replaced by technological innovation. Which is fine and dandy until a war happens and we have no industry or military to protect against outside threats. And considering the number of enemies the USA has made, I'd say war wouldn't be far on the horizon.
