Comments on: Romney’s foreign policy doesn’t seem so austere http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2012/10/09/romneys-foreign-policy-doesnt-seem-so-austere/ Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: QuidProQuo http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/2012/10/09/romneys-foreign-policy-doesnt-seem-so-austere/comment-page-1/#comment-10846 Wed, 10 Oct 2012 15:21:16 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/breakingviews/?p=15163#comment-10846 Agreed. Romney is a little too gung ho military expansion for my comfort level. The idea that power and military might needs to be expanded at the levels he’s talking about seems a little knee jerk to me. If all these middle east nations are begging for our “leadership”, as he says, then it’s time to hire out our military for top dollar and start collecting revenue on our investment. I don’t see how Romney can be so obsessed with military expansion without harming our spending priorities at home. Nor do I think America will be any less secure if we don’t put boots on the ground and arms into the hands of unknown receivers. By the way, where the hell is all the money and profits from US Arms sales anyway? Shouldn’t the military be funded with profits from arms sales and not from GO bonds. Time for military revenue bonds to be issued in place of US GO bonds.
