@Ferretsyndicate It's a good idea. But what about the people that will lose their job. I feel like this will create an unemployment problem. So more carfull planning, then just let's cut from military spending and add to health care
@jarlavgrenland Who would lose their jobs because of it? 🤔
Weapon makers and dealers? Good. State-sponsored killers? Good. Those who make profitby stealing oil from other countries? Good…
Less money for the army = cuts in spending = Less money for equipment and paying army personnel = don't have enough money to equip existing personnel and pay existing personnel = people will be layed off to fit the new budget = people in the US army will lose there job. and those people you mention 😉
@jarlavgrenland Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying, less people in the military is a good thing. Less people to do the dirty job for the corrupted politicians/other warmongers/those who make profit from war and colonization, is a good thing.
@devnull @Ferretsyndicate I am not saying you are wrong, but i think if there where to be a cut in US military spending it would be a slow cut over a period of time, as military spending is so huge and the army is huge and it also got to with hold diplomatic agreements. Also there should be an Army reform which focus on Defending US then waging war. similar to how Norway, Sweden and Denmarks army is built. which is purly on defending the country.
@jarlavgrenland Look how much the US spends on weapons (both for buying that shit, and for research on how to kill more people with less effort), not the salary part… just the weapon crap part.
Meanwhile, their health care system and education system are plain shitty… and it's not because they can't doing better (like poor countries), it's because they don't want to do better, because "In profit we trust"
As for the reform. Not gonna happen. The US loves making war too much…
@devnull @Ferretsyndicate Welp. i got to say one thing to Norway makes on of the most deadly missiles and torpedos (by Kongsberg Gruppen) guess who is buying them 😜 Well one thing is for sure, the more they spend on trying to get there wepons more accurate to only hit military personnel the less civilien dies idk. US military spending is weird. While in the mean time i am complaning that Norway is not using more on military spending. and buying outdated crap and exspensiv shit.
