    US approves massive defense spending bill

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:40 pm

    They can spend this much money to fight ISIL, which is a good thing, don’t get me wrong, but they are doing it while cutting our troops benefits. The very men and women who will be fighting this war; fighting and dieing and being wounded, should come first. This country is no longer a country of the people, for the people, and by the people. It’s run by a bunch of power hungry, corrupt, bureaucrats, who know nothing about fighting a war and don’t listen to those who do.

    The United States Congress approved a massive defense spending bill Friday that provides for an enhanced air campaign against the “Islamic State” terror group, as well as the training of Iraqis and moderate Syrian rebels.

    The legislation, which passed 89 votes to 11 in the Senate, includes US President Barack Obama’s $5-billion (4-billion-euro) request for funds to combat the Islamic State. Of that, $3.4 billion will be allocated to the deployment of US forces as part of Operation Inherent Resolve, and $1.6 billion will be used to equip and train Kurdish forces for two years.

    “American air power had changed the momentum on the ground somewhat and given moderates in the region an opportunity to regroup, but ISIS cannot be defeated without an opposing force to take the fight to it on the ground,” said Democratic Senator Carl Levin, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, using another acronym for the terrorist group….

    At least they are going to finally arm the Kurds, like they should have done months ago.
