While I will be the FIRST person to advocate cutting back on military spending and the endless foreign invasions and conflicts, this to me is more
'pissing on the little guy', from the folks at the top of the food chain, instead of focusing at the CRUX of the problem.
From some of the stories I have seen in recent times, the soldiers ALREADY aren't getting the greatest of treatment, not only on the physical level,
but also the psychological
level as well. Thier suicides have been at record levels in recent times.
If we are going to talk about cutting the M.I.C.'s bloated expenditures, why don't we START with the most obvious detrimental grotesqueries---The
failing conflicts and invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Stop wasting tens of billions of dollars each month in these endless debacles, bring our
men home (like we keep getting emptily promised) and THERE-PRESTO! The budget is shaved down gigantically.
But nope, gotta keep the war industry mega-corps cha-chinging in the cash flow, so we'll just shaft the soldiers and their families instead.
Same old, same old. I am so sick of the absolute RACKET that is 'war'.
