Why would the DOD sacrifice the military and not foreign aid?
that was from March 17, 2011
this is from yesterday march 23.

The House has passed a bill to cut $121 million from the budget of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), The Hill reported.
USAID's budget is used to provide assistance to a number of countries across the world.
The State Department has also expressed strong opposition to the proposed cuts.
Supporters of foreign assistance say funding for foreign aid is critical to US national security, and they have joined Defense Department and State Department officials on the issue.

looks like the state is once again throwing their once proud war heroes under the bus. This alone should indicate to anyone in the armed services that it's not good to be a soldier. If they haven't figured out yet that we are the bad guys this will help them realize.
No offense to others that think........."get what you can"
I am prior service and refused a disability. I can still function and just because I'm eligible dosen't mean I was going to accept it.

Perhaps they are planting a seed of fear in the military by making them imagine life without uncle sam's love and kindness. If FEMA camps open up it will make it easier for military personell to justify the required bahavior.
