    Fewer Americans think U.S. has world's strongest military

    A new poll shows 49% of Americans think the U.S. has the world's strongest military. It was 59% last year.
    The number of Americans who believe the U.S. has the world’s mightiest military has gone down from 59% last year to 49% this year, according to a Gallup poll published Monday.
    The poll asked 1,021 random people if they thought the United States has the strongest military in the world. The respondents were evenly split, with 49% saying “yes” and 49% saying “no,” a marked decrease from last year’s survey.
    The poll also showed that 37% said the U.S. didn’t spend enough on defense.

    We have a lot of fat fucks in our country. We should have the "biggest" military.

    We still have the worlds largest "civilian" military. Of course, Obama wants to unarm "we the people" as well.

    A new poll shows 87% of Dawg posters think your thread polls are meaningless.



    The poll also showed that 93% said your threads are dumb.

    The USA spends more money on their military then the next 7 largest countries combined. This just shows how fucking stupid the shitzens of the USA are.

    What does that even mean, "a weaker military", how exactly?

    Wow.

    5 years ago, discretionary spending on military and "non-military" "national defense" was $1.4 trillion.

    [​IMG]

    Not sure why they still call it "national defense" when we are funding a global empire.

    I guess the real question is, how much tax payer money needs to be redistributed to the Military Industrial Complex before we're "safe"?

    $100 million a year, $300 million, $500 million?

    The few people here that constantly shit on our boys and girls in uniform and worship Russia do not reflect how i feel. Let me be clear.

    A 610 billion dollar budget which by the way dwarfs the rest of the planet is not enough for the mouth breathers. You can hit them over the head with the check and they will still deny it.

    Just saw an episode of VICE where they went to a air base in Afghanistan where the US had spent 700million on like 10 Russian planes. They just sit there. They're junk and no one knows how to work on them or fly them.
    The waste in the military is insane

    The thread title should read, "Is it good that we're getting weaker mentally?" because the 50% who think we don't have the strongest military in the world are as dumb as a stump. And that $600B military budget isn't even close to what's actually spent by this country on defense. It's more like $1T when you count things like Department of Veterans Affairs, military pensions, homeland security, and intelligence. Don't forget, since we're borrowing money to pay for this military, it's share of interest payments on the debt is $82B.

    Edit: The table didn't format right and was very hard to read. Follow the link while I try to find a solution.

    Vice is crazy. They're going to the front lines, embedded with people fighting ISIS, and those people are nothing like the US military. I wouldn't feel safe at all.
