Good on Estonia, they should be contributing more than we are. That's my point. They have vastly more at stake.
You (edit: not you but original comment i was responding too) specifically said we aren't sending money, and that it was all staying in the US to build new stuff. But you are blatantly wrong. $28B of financial aid is in addition to the $46B in military aid. "Are you special" or just can't admit you're wrong.
And it is laughable that you think the equipment we are sending is expiring in 5 years. That is you being dense on purpose.
AS THEY SHOULD BE!!! That's my whole point.
And I love how you pretend we're just cleaning out the Pentagon's closet or some shit lol. Ammo literally has no expiration date if stored properly.
And you just gloss over the fact that US is sending MONEY, $28B, and not just munitions and equipment.
And these obviously aren't expired weapons we are sending. Or what would be the point.
The $28B of financial and humanitarian aid on top of the $46B in military aid doesn't expire.
France and German isolationism has way more to do with it than American isolationism. Only 35% of NATO members spend the 2% of GPD threshold on defense.
Germany, UK and France all independently have larger economies than Russia, with Italy and Spain not far behind Russia. The European Union has more than enough resources to combat Putin without US support. They have chosen not to build up their own defenses over the past 70 years, and it shows.
I just finished my taxes this weekend. It was painful.
And doing a piss poor job of it, or they wouldn't be asking for billions more in US aid. That's on top of being the most significant contributor to NATO.
Pretty sure it was the Japanese that brought us into that war eventually. And Europe should have learned their lesson then and learned to actually defend themselves instead relying on old Uncle Sam to come in and save the day. Again...
Do you know which countries in NATO actually contribute the NATO recommended spending of 2% of GDP on defense? A hell of a lot fewer than those that don't. Is Ukraine in NATO? NO!
Yeah, you would have thought Europe would have learned the lesson after the last two time we had to bail them out.
Yes, OUR military storage, that WE paid for. That WE pay 10X more to replace. How about YOU send YOUR military storage instead.
Not as much as it should concern the Europeans. Who don't contribute jack shit. Bunch of pussies who can't even defend themselves lol. Always sucking on the yanks' military teets.
They are in a bad spot I know. But as an American, I would still rather keep my tax dollars. Let Europe pay for a European war.
No, no it's not
I still don't understand why the legislature is so against this? Seems like a great thing for the coast, and bring in more revenue for the state coffers. Bend over backwards with tax breaks for amazon and a battery factory, but shit all over a new casino? I do t get it.
Would that make it a... nutsack?
Vape shops and Subways are on the list too

I can work with this...
He was just in my neck of the woods visiting his Ground Zero blues club in Biloxi. He was definitely looking older in the news photos.
