With our military budget calling for large reductions in military personnel and weaponry, our nation needs to watch two powerful nations: Russia and China.
These countries have embarked on massive military buildups of their military forces as well as their weapons. The United States must remain the strongest nation in the world. We cannot allow our military defenses to be weakened.
It is critical to maintain our military strength as a nation. The Russians and Chinese could precipitate a new arms race. The world cannot afford a return to the days of the Cold War, when the United States, the Soviet Union and Communist China were potential adversaries with enough nuclear weapons to destroy the world 10 times over.
Do not reduce our military ability.
