    Uhh, other than we have a few thousand more tanks than the Army wants, or can use, and those are just the mothballed ones, the image isn’t hardly true.

    Even if they ever actually made any cuts we would still spend more on our military than any one else.

    Oh, goodness! The US of A spends more on ‘defense’ than the next 8 nations COMBINED and it’s not nearly enough! Quick! Throw more children out of school! Hurry! Transfer more money into Mitt Romney’s overseas accounts! We’ll sort out these war matters FAST!

    Oh please. Did someone took a deeper look at the russian military? Even if Obama cuts the military budget 66% US spend more than the double in one year to the army as the russian army. Only a small part of the russia army is well equiped and only a small part of their equipment is in good condition. (especially the navy)

    The US can still carpet bomb the hell out of any small, unarmed third world nation

    It’s not your war USA. The ‘blame it on Obama’ shtick seems so infantile from us who live in the rest of the world. You may have heard of us.

    Drawing a cartoon without reading the news is pretty irresponsible. Defense cuts have nothing to do with preparedness — they have to do with the age-old process of old men fighting the last war (and generally losing for that reason) plus politicians protecting unnecessary defense spending in their home states.

    The sad part is the cuts aren’t in the right places because no congressmen would dare cut a useless pet project that might mean less jobs. Instead they cut benefits for survivors and veterans. I agree military cuts should happen. I also agree that once again big government gets in the way. Spending authority needs to be given to those who actually know what the military needs – the military commanders.

    Cheap shot at a man that may have plenty of cash and keeps it where his uncle can’t get at it to take it away.

    Other than that you are spot on……

    People on the government dole overwhelmingly vote Democrat. The military generally doesn’t.

    Only vague rumors, and then we’re not too sure. Are you called, like, Europe or something? Oh wait….are you the “shrimp on the barby” guys? You’re COOL!

    You say Vietnam was a win until the Democrats got control?? I’m no fan of LBJ, but he wasn’t president in 1973, when Nixon signed the “peace” deal.

    @swr
    Sorry – I mean especially their navy is in bad condition – now since 20 years. Most of their ships would be scraped long ago in western countries.
    I didn’t mention the chinese, because they invested a lot since the last decade to modernize their army. Actually I think they are still not as modern as the western army’s, but close behind. And their equipment is in much better conditions as the russian equipment is.
