The US Military Has Its Knee on the Throat of the World
by ELLEN TAYLOR"

"As Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, observed, 'The character of war is changing frequency'.

"The messy, scrappy, unsatisfying, asymmetrical wars in the devastated Middle East have lost the interest of our warriors, as two worthier adversaries, China and Russia, have been conjured up, and now grip their attention.

"Although our budget comprises over 40% of the world’s military spending, and China and Russia spend respectively one-sixth and one-tenth of ours, the Pentagon refers to them generously as “near-peers”.;)

"China and Russia are not eager for these roles.

"We have had to torment them, like reluctant bulls in a bullfight.

"We sail our warships within twelve miles of their shores, conducting vast military exercises in the South China Sea, the Black Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Japan Sea.

"Thousands of US troops marched across Europe this spring to perform military exercises along Russia’s borders.

"Arleigh-Burke class guided missile destroyers, with aerial escort, performed maneuvers this May, close to the Russian coast in the Barents Sea, to enforce 'freedom of navigation'".

Time to defund the Pentagon?

They can sail their warships within 12 miles of our coast too, oh wait, they aren't a blue water navy.

Or perhaps they don't want to rule the world?

"The manner in which we treat other nations contains many of the same elements as the racism and violence which the demonstrations on our streets are denouncing.

"The US military has its knee on the throat of the world.

"We must vanquish this shape-shifting, Orwellian spectre with which our overlords ensnare us, with their lies of “they hate our freedoms”. Defund the Pentagon!

"It would save millions of lives."

Only one country has maimed, murdered, and displaced millions of innocent civilians on the opposite side of the planet from its homeland over the past 75 years, and it's not China or Russia, is it?

No, Russia and China seem to be OK with just maiming, murdering and displacing their own citizens.

Why travel when you don't have to?

and care to back up that "millions" number?

FOAD you communist has been.

Trump ran on reducing tensions with Russia and reducing interventions, and you people dogpiled him and got him to back off on those policies.


I voted for him partially because of those positions. He won republican primaries in military friendly states, after making anti-intervention speeches, shocking pundits.


Where were you when your side (and many from my side) were beating the war drums against Putin?


I emailed the President and my congressmen on those issues. But I was not heard over the din of your people.


Where were you?

Since when did Russia and China become “the world”?

You want to defund the military now, even though President Trump hasn’t started any new wars, as he promised.

Funny how any talk of drawing down US forces in Europe is immediately criticized by the left as “reckless” or “doing Putin’s bidding”.

Any withdraw from South Korea or Japan by President Trump would be immediately called “surrendering to China”.

You leftwing maggots are so predictable.

I KNOW China doesn't currently have over 800 military bases in more than 70 countries. I KNOW China has not killed millions of innocent civilians on the opposite side of the planet since 1945.

China killed hundreds of millions of its own citizens with communism. Mao even had his own wife killed. Have to do better than that gp. You're slipping big time.

And you don't think we citizens should be armed?

I have no problem shifting military spending to something a little more productive. It's way out of control, but to be honest, you fucking commies have caused it. Communist assholes trying to make the world into a Bolshevik shit hole is what created the Military/Industrial Complex. Kill your communism/socialism nonsense and the military can stand down.

Until then, it will not go away, and it is the armed citizenry of America who protects the world from the most powerful military ever to have existed. They do as we command because if not....

Well, thanks to Trump and McConnell we may have to choose between the Navy and soc sec/medicare. But that may be a different issue than your thread.

I don't think Russia and China can be viewed together. Russia seems to be about Putin's Russia reacquiring its territories of the Czarist era. That includes Ukriaine. Geogia and the Baltics. Putin's already reacquired Belarus. At the heart, I just don't think Russian's view personal autonomy as being as central to the reason of being as Westerners do. Bruno, Galileo and the holocaust just don't have the same meaning to them and westerners. It's grip on its WWII pacific acquisitions was never challenged. Putin also views the US as a personal existential threat based upon Carter and Reagan toppling the Soviet Empire in Afghanistan.


China is imo a much bigger issue. The question imo is that without the US Navy, would China treat Japan, SK, the Philippines, Vietnam and their neighbors to the West differnently than Hong Kong? Taiwan's future is probably already sealed, and Gulags are planned. Trump was right at least as far as the US being the world's chump in making sure China had access to western markets.

Why travel when you don't have to?

and care to back up that "millions" number?
The US military killed three million Koreans living north of the 38th parallel, for starters. Millions more in Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Afghanistan,and Iraq with African victims waiting their turn.

"The major wars the United States has fought since the surrender of Japan in 1945 — in Korea, Indochina, Iraq and Afghanistan — have produced colossal carnage.

"For most of them, we do not have an accurate sense of how many people died, but a conservative estimate is at least 6 million civilians and soldiers."

I notice you only call out the US when they kill people, and ignore that in war it takes two to tango.

And just ignore the Communist countries who's dicks you would love to suck when they kill their own people.

Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, now Maduro. It's like you can't face up to the fact that your preferred system of government's only working function is purging and killing it's own citizenry.
