When China goes "mining for iron ore" in a place that has no iron ore, and we see them pouring 7,000 psi concrete burster slabs on top of the "mine"? That's not a mine, that's a bunker. But it's a mine so it goes under "mining" rather than military expenditures. and that's just two of the more obvious examples.
    Where are your links and photos to prove all of this. You sound like someone trying to prove the existence of god with no proof whatever. There have to be links articles or something. Or does all this information come to you in visions while you sleep.

    So you don't trust China, do you think they trust the US?

    Two problems with that.

    We don't have any M1's.

    **** - my husband feels that way and he's IN the military and a Republican.

    I don't know why you think it's a 'left only' sentiment.

    Re: China: U.S. Spends Too Much on Military

    I have to applaud the liberal left …. cutting costs ….. a very strange stance for them to take … I would expect them to just say increase our spending .. and tax the rich evil bastards for it, just like they do with everything else.

    Now if we could get those liberal leftists to hold onto that thought … when discussing other things we might actually make some progress....... but alas …. we know .. when it comes to liberal thinking .. there are no other cuts to be made .. our military is the only thing in our country we have wasteful spending on .. and spend to much money on …. All our other welfare and social programs need to be “INVESTED” ( the new term for spending that has been adopted by the left) more in .. and paid for by those evil rich bastards ..

    The left doesn't support spending cuts. Obama does.

    I think that you're missing the larger more important point here--the American Left is not to be trusted any more than the sneaky Chinese. Further, since they are mentioned in the same paragraph, they may be in league with one another.
    All this other stuff about all of the other people who also think that our military spending could stand to lose a few pounds, just shows that people aren't really getting the point of the OP.
    I may be wrong.
