    I take it you don’t know who “the head of the military” is.

    Actually we tried peace, we were attacked, a fact that most liberals and democrats keep sticking their head in the sand about and ignoring. Shall we mention your beloved Clintons “Operation Restore Credibility” aka “Restore Democracy” or the democrats getting us into WWI and WWII?

    We do, but sadly all he sees is that we have no right to defend ourselves.

    So you would have stayed out of WWII? Or perhaps joined the other side?

    We can kill all the world population 10 times over how many times can you nuke a place before the whole world is doomed. Eisenhower was right we have to beware of the Military-industrial complex.

    You don’t have to be old to read history books.

    I find it hilarious (in a sad way) that the most popular argument against military cuts I hear anymore is “it’ll cost jobs!”. Usually from the same people who say we need to fire teachers, cops, firefighters, etc. and obliterate their pensions in order to “get our finances in order”. Seems they believe that teachers and bureaucrats are tougher and more adaptable than soldiers and sailors….
    Then, of course, there’s that peculiar doublethink that believes that every last department of the government is a wasteful money-sink- except for the military, which obviously squeezes every last dime it gets and in fact deserves a blank check for anything its little heart desires.

    When they roll their terrible eyes
    and gnash their terrible teeth,
    Look them in the eye without blinking
    and say
    LET THE SEQUESTRATION BEGIN.

    Yeah, but the parties have pretty much flipped since 1960. Most that would have wanted war were the southern Democrats…who are all Republican now.

    The cartoonist forgets that the eagle’s other leg holds an olive branch, which is also getting cut by the same amount.

    Interestingly, the eagle is supposed to be holding the arrows on its own LEFT side.

    Let’s see, maybe if we had the defense budget at Clinton levels, 50% of today’s, and we really worked at taking that money and applying it to medical and technical research, and real “shovel ready” infrastructure we could get this country back in the running as a leader in (marketable) medical and technical innovation. We could rent out the military if Germany or Korea or Japan or Australia absolutely wanted us posted in their countries.
    Let the sequester go through and take those tax rates back to pre-Bush levels. Howard Dean, one of my favorite Progressives, suggested the other day on CNBC that the fear of the sequester is blown out of proportion and that it would not be that radical in it’s effect. I agree and also think that it would force this administration and congress to really get their shit together and focus on solutions to our problems, not this endless partisan bickering that prevails on all levels of our government.

    “When the hell has America ever “tried peace?”


    The expression is “peace through superior firepower.”


    Obviously you don’t appreciate the multitude of benefits to a society bent on growth through military conquest. Don’t you know how well it worked for all those countries/empires from the past? It worked so well for the Greeks, Romans, British, Napoleon, Hitler, etc, etc…

    The spending cuts imposed by sequestration will be smaller than the decreases that occurred after the Korean & Vietnam Wars. We also spent more in Iraq & Afghanistan than we did in either of those wars. After that, the military budget will be increased at the rate of inflation.

    Our military budget is bigger than the next 13 combined! We aren’t cutting off the arrowheads, just plucking a few feathers.
