If US decrease military budget, would China, Russia & Turkey follow?

The F-35 joint strike fighter has been a problem to the U.S. military. With a high sticker price per plane, debates about whether or not it would be more effective to just replace the jets with a new fighter takes center stage.

Meanwhile, the White House is making the closing of Guantanamo Bay a priority in the first year and while there is no public timeline, the first detainee to be transferred from the Guantanamo Bay military base is being sent to Morocco signaling the Biden Administration commitment to closing the military prison.

Plus, a global tax increase has been introduced by the White House in order to level the playing field for countries looking to keep multi national businesses at home.

Meanwhile, the wildfires are ravaging the west of the United States and the source of the spark seems to be a familiar company.
