    Trump Signs Executive Order To Rebuild US Military

    "No one will question" that the US is the best military on earth and the greatest force for justice "the world has ever seen," President Donald Trump said. But that the US also wants peace, he said.

    After participating in the swearing-in of new Defense Secretary Gen. James "Mad Dog" Mattis, Trump announced the signing of two executive actions, the first of which Trump thinks the 115th Congress "will like very much."

    Trump has issued a series of promises to bolster the US military. But as it stands, the US already outpaces the rest of the world in military spending by a long-shot. Trump has vowed to build up the nuclear arsenal and increase the number of ships in the US Navy. He has also been busy with the F-35 program, which he said will see cost reductions conducted "beautifully."

    At the Pentagon, Trump also signed a separate executive order that will enact "new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic Terrorists out of the United States of America"

    The full details of the executive order rebuilding the military have not been disclosed.

    In the Pentagon's Hall of Heroes with a massive medal of honor behind him, Trump declared the "executive action" will contribute to "a great rebuilding of the armed services," adding that it will include "new planes, new ships, new resources, and new tools for our men and women in uniform."

    USA's military capability

    Post  Henrik5927 on Sat Apr 29, 2017 8:34 am

    Hello

    I want to start a thread about USA's military capability. I mean does it new military work practically? I think they got around 120000-180000 active soldiers, a litter bit less in their active troops? What is your experience around this area? Is the military budget still going on? Does it goes at 500USB? Then the military should have like eight aircraft carrier in active duty? And like 2500 aircrafts, 5000 armoured tanks and a navy, airforce and so on? Intresting to discuss? I think so, I think we can discuss it in this thread. Have the US army a solid structure in their daily permissions? I mean, how is the missions to expand their military in a decade? Will they grow their military after China have soil them? How is their military budget? Will they become the greatest military power in the world again?

    Got to get the MIC on side if you want to make any headway...

    A rearm is almost as good as a war in terms of cost...

    It's not funny, even their figures are aimed at politicians with a "gib moneyzzzz" theme.
    They get Russia's population wrong, bloat their number of warheads and then include Japan in NATO lol1
