Army Times: Financial crisis threatens security


www.infowars.com

The global economic crisis is putting a three-sided squeeze on the defense budget that could leave the nation at greater risk, U.S. intelligence analysts and outside experts warn Congress.

In testimony before the House and Senate Armed Services committees, witnesses warned that the world, in many cases, will become a more dangerous place at the same time that many nations will have less to spend on their national security programs.

“There will likely be fewer resources available for defense and foreign assistance,” said Robert Haas, president of the Council on Foreign Relations. “Reduced availability of resources for defense makes it even more critical that U.S. planners determine priorities.”


Well it's nice to see that the CFR is actually looking out for our safety, how nice.


Wow I could hardly say that with a straight face. Ok so we have an economic crisis that is squeezing the life out of every large nation on the planet, and the CFR is worried we won't have enough bombs to throw at people who don't agree with us?

How very democratic of them.


Second, allies will be able to contribute less for common defense. “Economic constraints have at times been an excuse for allies not to do more for the common defense of the West,” said Dov Zakheim, a former Pentagon comptroller, who also testified March 11.


So the US doesn't like it when countries don't do enough to protect the West eh?

This is all very un-nerving, atleast it's good to know they are worried about not being able to put a gun to other nations heads.
