, we spend about 40 cents.
We spend more on the military now, in inflation adjusted dollars
, than we did during the Cold War.
We also spend more than twice as much on the military as China, and about TEN times more than Russia.
I'll stop there and stop arguing political stuff in this thread as I don't want to be the guy who gets it bounced to DC, but I couldn't let that one pass. The consistent unbelievable ignorance about US military spending is just incredibly annoying.
Ok..this is my last comment in this forum! With all dues respect sir, I never mentioned spending but since you did I will reply. One of the biggest problems with this Nation is thinking more spending means better. We have and continue to over spend leaving us weak and very vulnerable. I could give many many examples and facts but I will do everyone here the favor and not.
