Editing CIA reports apparently.
At the hairdressers.
Don't you study history? The US and half the western nations have been essentially vassal states of Israel not unlike the European powers were to the Kingdom of Jerusalem during the Crusades. And that applies equally to Democrats and Republicans.
At this point if the Prime Minister of Israel went mad and started nuking half the middle east I am convinced the US government would still be bending over backwards to justify it and support even that madness.
And if you know anything about military power in the Middle East you would know that no other nation in the Middle East is actually a threat to Israel. Even if you discount the conventional weapons no other nation in the Middle East is a nuclear power.
Iran is no threat to Israel. The US media has been scaring the crap out of the US population in regards to Iran and Russia is not going to give their nukes to anyone. That is beyond silly. I am with you that a US economic collapse could be in the cards though. You are right about Russian subs but the US and Britain and others have subs off Russia so that will not happen. Look up the MAD doctrine.
Umm okay. The missle defense negotiations have nothing to do with this and is a misnomer anyway. Anyone who knows anything about the technology knows they are useless as a defensive system and only make sense if you want to bombard Russia, hence Russian opposition to it. There is NO justifiable reason for the US to increase or maintain the current budget so a reduction is a good thing unless you think the US suffering the same fate as the USSR is a good thing. Many of the jobs of the US army has been outsourced since the 90s at the least and it has nothing to do with turning the army on the US citizens. That is just goofy right wing conspiracy invented almost entirely by the NRA to scare the crap out of their donors and make them hand over more money.
