The current political winds in Washington, DC, have dictated that less will be spent on the various Branches of the Armed Forces of the Unites States.
In an article published by San Diego, California’s North County Times, ironically on Thanksgiving Day, Military Affairs reporter Gretel C. Kovach cites;
“The Corps is shrinking by 20,000 Marines, to 182,100.”
The North County Times also cited that America’s premier fighting force is;
“scraping to repair or replace battle-worn equipment.”
In spite of the Nobel Peace Prize award winning Obama ordering a recent surge in combat troops the Afghanistan theater of war, Kovach also pointed out that America’s beloved Marine Corps is still to be slashed by roughly 20 percent;
“despite no sign of an enemy collapse.”
So What Will The Taxpayers Money Be Spent On?
As reported, $6,000,000,000 worth of American taxes has been promised to the two neighboring nations to promote “green energy.”
Many green energy companies in the United States, such as Solyndra and About Solar have been dismal failures despite the over $1,200,000,000 infusion of tax dollars from the Obama Administration. source – Examiner
