Donald Trump on security..


According to a Breitbart post, Trump leveled a scathing blast at Clintoon on the subject of defence and the security of this nation:
Donald Trump is zeroing in on national security, foreign policy and America’s military.
During a speech in Philadelphia, the Republican blasted his rival Hillary Clinton — describing her record as “disqualifying.”

“In a Trump administration, our actions in the Middle East will be tempered by realism,” Trump stated, explaining that regime change produces radical terrorism. During his remarks at the Union League of Philadelphia he added, “we can make new friends, rebuild old alliances and bring new allies into the fold. I’m proud to have the support of war fighting generals.”
..and..
Trump blasted his rival’s record as secretary of state on foreign policy and national security, saying he will be guided by “diplomacy, not destruction.”

“She’s trigger happy and very unstable,” the New Yorker stated of Clinton, also calling her “reckless” over her use of a personal server with classified emails during her time as secretary of state.

Trump criticized Clinton’s handling of Libya, Syria, ISIS and Iran. “What have we gotten from the horrible decisions made from President Obama and Secretary Clinton?” Trump questioned.

An NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking poll published early Wednesday showed that voters who currently serve in the military or previously served prefer Trump over Clinton by 19 points.
He released a list of proposals:
PROPOSAL: Immediately after taking office, Mr. Trump will ask the generals to present a plan within 30 days to defeat and destroy ISIS.

PROPOSAL: Mr. Trump will ask Congress to fully eliminate the defense sequester and will submit a new budget to rebuild our military as soon as he assumes office.

PROPOSAL: Mr. Trump will build an active Army of around 540,000, as the Army’s chief of staff has said he needs.

PROPOSAL: Mr. Trump will build a Marine Corps based on 36 battalions, which the Heritage Foundation notes is the minimum needed to deal with major contingencies.

PROPOSAL: Mr. Trump will build a Navy approaching 350 surface ships and submarines, as recommended by the bipartisan National Defense Panel.

PROPOSAL: Mr. Trump will build an Air Force of at least 1,200 fighter aircraft, which the Heritage Foundation has shown to be needed to execute current missions.

PROPOSAL: Mr. Trump will seek to develop a state of the art missile defense system.

PROPOSAL: Mr. Trump will modernize our nation’s naval cruisers to provide Ballistic Missile Defense capabilities.

PROPOSAL: Mr. Trump will enforce all classification rules, and enforce all laws relating to the handling of classified information.

PROPOSAL: One of Mr. Trump’s first commands after taking office will be asking the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and all relevant federal departments, to conduct a thorough review of United States cyber defenses and identify all vulnerabilities – in our power grid, our communications systems, and all vital infrastructure.
All this is in advance of an NBC News "Commander-in-Chief forum" on Wednesday at 8 p.m. where Trump and Clinton to answer questions on military affairs, veterans issues and national security.

Clintoon's response:


UPDATE: Trump Sizzles!


In a follow-up article, BB mentioned intoned that Trump hit it out of the park:
PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania — Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, dazzled in yet another speech in which he outperformed expectations here on Wednesday laying out a strategic vision for the United States under a Trump presidency when it comes to foreign and defense policy.

The speech, which stunned media figures, pundits, and those throughout the political class, only seemed to get better as every line went by.
Well, I sure hope he gets elected because I am sicker than puke of the last eight years of these "Kumbaya" circle-jerks as a defense policy.

I worked for an organization whose philosophy was basically this:

"You can launch a nuclear attack if you like, but be prepared to have ten times what you unleash on us shoved up your asshole before your missiles and bombs land!"

Of course, that's back when men had balls. Now they're just a bunch of pasty-faced, tutu-wearing metro-sexual ballerina dancers.
