In the midst of debate about defense spending, it should be pointed out that Pentagon spending is over $600 billion annually, while China is at $90 billion, even with increased spending!
Also, the US spends more on defense than the next TEN nations combined!
And finally, the cuts in defense spending are on FUTURE INCREASES in spending, not an actual cut in present defense spending!
Will this have any effect on opponents who will accuse the Obama Administration of putting America in danger?
Of course not, but it shows what the Obama Administration is doing is justifiable and reasonable!
