I don't know what scares me more, this post or the fact that you get to vote.I am against this project, and let me explain why.
So much spending is put into our military. First, we all know that we have the supreme military, at least the majority of US citizens would like to think that. Second, as we have learned from more modern wars, that technology does not win wars, but the men that operate the technology. (Patton has a quote of this, and the movie Captain America plays with this concept.) Recently, a helicopter was shot down, and twenty five special forces soldiers were killed.
Technology doesn't win wars, people do. It would be nice to have a weapon where you just press a button and a war is won. Unfortunately, that is in fantasy land. The only counter argument I can see to this would be the atom bombs that were dropped in Japan during WWII. While it is true that the bomb allowed for an allied victory, the world rushed to obtain that technology. And now, many nations have the power of the a-bomb.
First, I think we as a nation have to balance our check books. Unfortunately, in the real world, when you are in debt so much, you can't keep spending on the things that you want. I feel like the people in power are being immature about this whole situation. Washington spent themselves into this problem, and now they have to face the consequences. This recent bill is pathetic. The amount of cuts over 10 years, we occur over three days. It really is stupid. And now the government, while we owe so much money to so many different lenders, are spending hundreds of millions of dollars on a new project? This really is pathetic.
So no, I am totally against this project.
