Was just reading, over at MarketWatch as i often like to, about this whole Budget Supercommittee nonsense and something occurred to me about Pentagon budget cuts. Specifically this article:

It suddenly occurred to me, this part imparticular:
"Then there’s a loophole in the law that exempts “war funding,” creating an incentive for the Pentagon to move items from the base budget to the war budget."

So now... you really think there's going to be much if any incentive to end any wars... and/or not start new ones?

What do you guys think?

if you look in to the law the" war act " or the "mil budget" you will find that they the Gov can take funds from SS welfare VA and civil project's funding and use the funds meant for those programs to fund the Defense and Mil complex Darpa included, NASA is not, but NSA,CIA is, so is DHS FEMA and TSA. Congress could go with out pay if need be to keep the Mil going, but I think this one got tossed.
