    Does the USA really need to spend 48% of the entire World’s defence expenditure?

    Didn’t some fine right wing spokesman want to drown the government in a bathtub? Starting to see a few bubbles now…

    Close most overseas & domestic US military bases.
    Bring our troops home now and employ our veterans and the jobless in good union jobs rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure. Restore the tax rates on the rich that were in effect in the 1960’s. Restore Glass steagall with sharp teeth.

    I believe it was good old Grover Norquist who said that. Been pretty silent lately, good old Grover…

    Bob Woodward has never been a lefty. The mere fact that you bring down a Republican president does not make you a lefty. It makes you a good journalist.

    The quote from the cartoon lacks context, but if it’s about Iran or North Korea I would agree. Priorities, Pentagon, priorities!

    On the other hand the sequester gives amble opportunity to find out what is really needed and what not. So if the carrier was to be send out to “protect” France it might be okay to cancel that “mission”…

    You’re absolutely right that it’s wrong for the US to spend 48% of the entire world’s defence expenditure.


    Surrounded by more than 6 billion jihadist, Communist, and socialist enemies, the US needs to spend at least 98%, if not 108%, just to keep all Americans safe.

    Safe enough so that no one will take our guns away.

    @Michael wme If, (as you seem to be implying) all the other human beings on this planet hate the USA and Americans so much, would it not then at least be somewhat logical that there might just be something very wrong with we Americans, and not the rest of humanity?

    @Robert Landers Of course, that is if you were not being sarcastic. If so, then “Never mind!”

    ROFLMAO! Well said Lester! Bob Woodward has a history of sniffing out dirty politicians…..looks like his smeller is geared up again. I wonder what took it so long? This one has been stinking like a rotting corpse since he took office in 2008….

    Ah yes, because the last time the UN placed troops, supplied by member nations, in an international hot spot, all went quite well.

    The UN is one of the most ineffectual institutions ever created. It is rampant with waste, fraud and corruption. The resolutions passed are useless and unenforceable. The member nation decides it doesn’t like them and tells the UN to get stuffed.

    Now, if you were attempting to be humorous, then that’s a little different.

    “I, for one, hope that these machines of warfare can become museum pieces.”


    As do I. I would love to see our military as a “contracted” force in any foreign country or supplying border security at home. Too bad the government doesn’t care what we think…

    What we have here is a failure to…….lead.

    And remember,
    The president is the only one elected to lead.
    All the others are there to represent.
