Defense aid largely also includes foreign aid, it's a bit of budget shuffling. The traditional con game played by both sides of the aisle. I started out my life as a Liberal, before being disenfranchised by the current state of the Democratic Party. So I still have my sympathies towards streamlining the military's outsized budget, most concerning is that the money isn't even going towards where they should go. The VAT is underfunded, the logistic supplies are outdated at times, money is instead going towards either the maintaining of our aging nuclear weapons program, or other superweapons that apparently are ineffective, similar to how Germany was starting to collapse from its misguided programs in the final days of the Nazi regime. It's time to streamline military spending for a robust, cost-effective US Military. And all of these efforts to, are for home. Basically I put our civic domestic needs above all other considerations. It's the government's #1 responsibility.
