The defeat of ISIS is the primary goal of the US Military, using NATO allies and other allies in the Middle East.
Homeland Security will be reformed to secure US borders and immigration law enforcement. Our FBI, intelligence services and law enforcement agencies are responsible for ensuring that terrorists and terror supporters are rooted out and permanently deported or imprisoned at Gitmo.
The US Military is a deterrent force that is maintained to keep the peace and keep our trade routes open. Currently the Chinese and Russians are moving to infringe on territory that belongs to our allies in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan and Eastern Europe. Iran is a threat to the Middle East and North Korea is a threat. The restoration of our military will ensure that we will be able to protect our allies and keep shipping lanes open.
Part of our defense strategy is to ensure that we control the design and manufacture of everything needed to become self-sustaining. We won World War I and World War II, because of our design and manufacturing capability, not our service economy or tourism revenues.
A major threat to our sovereignty and defense capability is our federal debt. Federal spending must be lowered and balanced after our economy is restored.
