just curious, with almost 10% unemployment and over 100k men and woman looking to get out of the military becuase they may not get paid...what kind of jobs are they planning on getting?

The jobs we already dont have?

They would rather do this, than cut funding to rearming, expanding and maintaining the nuclear weapons arsenal.

Actually if you read the link on Gates, he is actually betting on young people to be desperate enough to keep joining the military force because lack of employment, specially young families.

I see a new Army of dying youth and disable vets for less money.

No only that but paying most of the defense budget on private contractors up to over 70% of the budget and only about 22% goes on the military, I see the discrepancy and do you look into the link? it doesn't say anything about cutting on spending.

The administration is also looking into getting away with mdicare but you still will be paying into the fund.
