House Passes $585B Defense Bill to Expand Campaign Against IS (EpochTimes, Dec 4, 2014):

WASHINGTON—The Republican-controlled House approved a $585 billion defense policy bill that grants President Barack Obama the authority to expand the U.S. military campaign against Islamic militants in Iraq and Syria despite misgivings about a new American combat role after more than a decade of war.

The vote on Thursday was 300-119, a reflection of the popularity of the sweeping, bipartisan measure that authorizes funds for American troops as well as ships, planes and other war-fighting equipment built in congressional districts nationwide.

The measure heads to the Senate where passage is expected next week, although some GOP senators are angry over the bill’s unrelated provisions to expand wilderness areas.

The legislation endorses Obama’s latest request to Congress in the 4-month-old war against extremists who brutally rule large sections of Iraq and Syria. The bill provides $5 billion for the stepped-up operation of air strikes and the dispatch of up to 1,500 more American troops.

  1. The US has less than 30% of the world using the dollar, down from 100% in January, 2010. They are sitting on piles of paper money nobody wants, yet they plan to build more war equipment………

    These people are delusional. The US has no allies left and no coalitions…..you cannot fight anyone but a self created enemy in a unilateral attack on a tiny country that cannot fight back…………Iraq. If they try to go at Russia, Russia has China, India, Africa, and much of the world in its corner……..the US hasn’t a prayer.

    The republicons take over in January………..and they will speed up our slide downhill……they are too blind to realize we are speeding downhill, we are already over the cliff. There is something in the bible about blind fools….blindness caused by their own greed……….and these clowns are even worse than the others.

    The US is down to weeks before the dollar collapses.
    I wonder how the republicons will handle that.
