    European armies on the decline. Dwindling state and security. Core responsibility of the state: Ensure the rich get richer.

    As far as I know the US has pushed the UK into various armed conflicts. Not that it wasn´t the UK´s own fault - after all they gave up on their sovereignty.

    Totally ass-backwards assessment.
    The Brits can't afford a large standing army because socialism eats up all of the money. Right now they're paying for millions of migrants that are living off of the rest of the country's taxes.

    The US debt clock shows they can´t afford a military as well.

    Really, you think the military is causing the debt clock to spin. Why do idiots always blame military spending for the debt when entitlement spending is nearly 4 times military spending?

    Both of you are right.


    WE can't afford ANYTHING, because our financial situation is a death spiral. But is not the fault of a reasonable sized military, but unsustainable entitlement growth.
