    I just remembered why I usually do not look at your ’toon. You appear to be deranged.

    Ramirez demeans the value of the Pulitzer. If he got it twice, it means it’s worthless like the Peace Nobel.

    I agree with Sen. Hagel that the DoD isn’t a jobs program.

    The three men depicted have all been directly involved in reigning violence upon those declared enemies of the U.S. There is nothing abstract in their thinking about death as an option. There is nothing abstract in their understanding of the bloat in parts of our military.

    I see most commenter’s here do like the truth

    And MSNBC is so un-bias.

    What a dumb cartoon. Even the GOP opposes new taxes, so they implicitly agree that the Defense department needs major cuts. It’s nice to have someone in charge of DoD who actually can do arithmetic. As for the Kerry comments, is Ramirez saying that no war crimes were committed in Viet Nam? Because killing “gook” civilians is fine if it’s good American boys who do it? Disgusting.

    Last time I checked a large number of Republicans still wanted to increase our military budget. I guess having a military as big as the rest of the world combined just isn’t enough to keep us safe.

    Hagel isn’t using facts, he’s using Heritage Foundation talking points.

    If you put the word “some” in front of Kerry’s line, it reflects what he said. Ever heard of Mai Lai? Abu Ghraib?

    Hagel has said that unilateral sanctions on Iran won’t work. He’s right. Unless the rest of the world is on board, it’s a futile gesture. Hagel wants effective, worldwide sanctions.

    Hagel has said Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism. He voted against a meaningless bill labeling the Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization. Big whoop.

    Our current budget situation means we need to cut long term spending. That includes cutting our incredible bloated military budget. Conservatives complain about giving Public TV $450 million a year. That’s equal to one F-22.

    Here’s a Hagel quote from 2006:

    “Well, first of all, I think we have to recognize that this Iranian issue does represent a real threat to the United States. … unlike Iraq. This is a real legitimate issue. And I think, before we charge off in going off to another war — we’re in two of them now, in Afghanistan and Iraq — we’d better think through this one carefully and clearly.”

    Too bad Bush didn’t care to listen to this guy.

    Any other government spending is too much. Defense spending is always too little. Where are the zero sum, hard money RePubs when the Pentagon’s budget is in play? Nowhere visible.

    The republicans appear to be more insane every day.
    Hopefully they will all be voted out of office.

    @Uncle Joe

    I would not be so sure, comparing dollar for dollar is a bad way to measure. First we all know China uses slave/prison labor so how much farther can Chinese dollar go and how do we know what they are telling us here is the truth about military spending. China is putting out a new family of bombers and just lunched there first aircraft carrier this year that they purchased while building like three more so how are they paying for all that.

    Next Europe spends 289 billion and they could not deal with Libya without us. They used up all there smart weapons stores in the first week of the Libya conflict so Europe is not carrying its load.
