Russia, China making gains on US military power

The United States still outspends its rivals on the military, with a roughly $600 billion budget that

But much of the U.S.'s spending is paying for military operations overseas, such as the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
“U.S. forces … go halfway around the world to fight. And they fight in the other guy’s backyard, at times in places of the other guy’s choosing. And that’s the problem,” said David Ochmanek, senior defense researcher at the RAND Corporation.

China and Russia, meanwhile, are spending heavily on “modernization” to improve their militaries' quality, efficiency and overall performance. The strategy is paying huge dividends, especially for China.


They want to expand their territories.

Somehow, I get the feeling they will be able to get American's to pay for it all, like were paying for Trump's Wall.

4. You know when you blame Trump for something that's been going on for years,

it makes you look like you don't know what you're talking about at all. I look forward to your posts about how religious violence in the middle east, African drought, and the Greek debt crisis are Trump's fault too.

7. The Chinese defense budget has been steadily rising for a lot longer than Trump has been in office.
