- Hagel supports cuts to the defence budget. As he should. Any real conservative worth his marbles knows that we spend too much on maintaining our empire abroad. We have a military presence in 150 countries and military spending approximately equal the rest of the world's combined. You cannot call yourself a fiscal conservative and at the same time support this kind of spending. Not all of our military spending is directly linked to our national defence. - Hagel's support for a nuclear free world. I do not agree with Hagel on this point. - Hagel's hostility towards Israel. I've head many so called conservatives get their panties in a bunch over this one. Even still, nobody has actually explained how Hagel has been hostile towards Israel
