    I guess Holbert didn’t notice the cuts are the Pentagon response to REPUBLICAN mandated cuts…

    Another Holbert Toon, another metaphor lifted from left wing, liberal, socialist, all for one, one for all Hollywood.
    What’s old Jerry trying to tell us, people, I mean between the lines?

    wmconelly, I think he’s trying to tell you you don’t get it and you think this is a progressive point of view when obviously it’s a right wing cartoon. He’s saying that fewer GIs will mean a weaker America (smaller shield, son, this isn’t hard). In fact, that point of view assumes that warfare involves a lot of foot soldiers, which is about 20 or 30 years out of date.

    God forbid we shrink down to the worlds most expensive military force only two times over.

    There is still ethnic cleansing in Darfur. There are riots in Thailand. Problems in Myanmar. Tamil Tigers in the Phillipines. Mercenaries in the Congo. Pirates in Somalia. Time to invade all those countries, too?

    I would certainly like to make the world a better place. The question is whether shooting people will make them change their minds/hearts/methods. I submit that it does not.

    As an example, the Romans nailed Jesus to a tree 2000 years ago. Did that stop his message?

    Most people want to live their lives in peace, and to be mostly left alone. This is universal. Give people some credit for being able to effect change for themselves. After all, aren’t you for people taking personal responsibility, instead of letting Mommy government (in this case, Uncle Sam) do it for them?

    Or, to put it another way, imagine that other countries sent their military forces to the US to promote the Democratic party and shoot Republicans on sight. Would you welcome them with open arms?

    Cutting troops, and their benefits, to pay more to contractors is exactly what Rumsfeld and Cheney called for, just more sameo sameo.

    Bring them home and then they don’t have to serve any tours. See, zero tours. Why isn’t that better?
