Guns or butter. The eternal question? Lithuanian style.
Defmin = Defense Minister.
"People have misconception about defense funding, Lithuanian defmin says"
"VILNIUS – Public disapproval of plans to increase defense spending is affected by unresolved social problems and misconception of funds allocated to national defense, Lithuanian National Defense Minister Raimundas Karoblis says, stressing the need to increase the defense budget in response to a fundamentally changed security situation."
Lithuanian a constituent member of the NATO alliance struggling to meet the agreed upon minimum 2 % of the national budget as devoted to national defense.
That agreed upon agreement of 2 % a goal to meet and hopefully at the insistence of President Trump of the USA sooner than later.
As to what the "misconceptions" are the devoted follower to the blog will have to read for themselves.
UNDERSTAND FULLY WELL THAT LITHUANIA HIGHLY RELIANT ON THE NATO ALLIANCE TO GUARANTEE CONTINUED INDEPENDENCE AND FREEDOM FROM INTIMIDATION BY THE RUSSIAN BEAR.
