    I’m all for cutting government spending, but the War Department needs to be cut drastically.

    Oh I agree. They could cut defense spending simply by getting rid of the dead weight which they have plenty of.

    Oh they need to get rid of more than dead weight. They need to cut to the bone.

    No nation in history keeps it’s freedom at home, with a massive military starting foreign wars of aggression repeatedly.

    While I agree with the sentiment the U.S. Seems to think we have to be the police force of the world.
    It also seems that too many on the left are excited with the idea of some form of war which they can then hang around Trumps neck.

    Wait until you see the real 2020 Budget that the dems put up.
    It won't look anything like Trump's recommendations.
    This will be Armageddon.

    Yes. The left used to be almost universally anti-war. Now, they have flipped.

    Their government run media outlets are now all pro-war. In fact, their media outlets fire anyone who is vocally against war. See Phil Donahue, Ed Shultz, Ashleigh Banfield, Jesse Ventura, and so many others.

    OH MY GODDDD. Trump will have to negotiate, that has to fill you with dread considering how he has sucked at that since becoming POTUS.

    I enjoyed all the cuts and reductions in increases but the war drum continues to beat.

    Trump spoke of ending foriegn wars and terminating NATO, during the campaign. That all appears to have disappeared. He does deserve credit for trying to find peace with NK. That would never have been done by HER or nearly any other American politician...aka criminals.
