WEB Notes: Counter? Counter? What exactly is there to counter? North Korea’s missiles with bent nose cones? The United States military could decimate the entire nation of North Korea without blinking an eye, but now they need $4 billion dollars to “counter North Korea”. See Franken, the brainwashing is excellent and the people will soak this one up real good. Just threaten the people and they will obey, fear works great!
President Donald Trump has asked Congress to approve an additional $6 billion in defense spending for fiscal year 2018 — including $4 billion “to support urgent missile defeat and defense enhancements to counter the threat from North Korea.”
In a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan, Trump also requested an additional $700 million to repair damage to US Navy ships and $1.2 billion in support of the administration’s South Asia strategy.
“This request supports additional efforts to detect, defeat, and defend against any North Korean use of ballistic missiles against the United States, its deployed forces, allies, or partners,” the letter said.
