Mostly, what worries me is that we are currently doing massive joint exercises on the Korean peninsula, and something may have triggered NK.

I flipped over to CNN for a second, looks like there was follow-up by someone on the Trump side on the Trump tower meeting back in 2016 less than a week later.

He just likes having meetings in the Situation Room because he can play Mobile Strike on the big screen.  Nobody has found a way to tell him he's actually moving troops in Afghanistan.

As soon as 1/2 Scoop told Lumpy that "this is it, no else happened" everyone knew that there would be this type of dip, dip, dip reporting on this Trump Tower Meeting

Remember that they were meeting on the budget, and the Democrat's position is that any increases in military spending should be matched by increases in non-military spending, which is a non-starter with many House Republicans who believe the Federal government should ONLY spend money on the military.  Well, that and giant block grants to the states with no strings attached, of course.

So this is almost certainly a dog and pony to try to convince the Democrats that the military is broke, the world is falling to pieces (due of course to Obama), and if we don't massively increase our oh so inadequate military budget we are all doomed.  There will probably be red flashing lights, breathless warnings about terrorism, progress bars shaped like bombs, and cake.

Have you paid attention to the 7th Fleet? The Navy is broke. It's a huge problem for them in maintaining their equipment. They're down to cannibalizing good planes for parts. Besides, Mattis is one of the good ones, he doesn't do that sort of bullsh*t.

KangTheMad: The Navy is broke


We spend $600 BILLION dollars a year on our military.

The only thing broke is their spending priorities.

I think the bigger issue is the operational tempo (for the last 14 years) is too high causing a lack of training leading to catastrophic mistakes. We've constantly had aircraft carriers and clight crews dropping bombs on Iraq for over a decade, so they aren't cycling out for training and repairs as often.

If you add together the military budgets of all our potential enemies - China, Russia, NK, Iran, etc. - it comes up to about half of the $640b we are spending now.

If we are barely scraping by on $640b, than we aren't spending our money wisely, and the solution to that isn't to throw more money at the problem.

With all the aircraft carriers they've got, I'm surprised they have any money left at all.  They should think about cutting down.
