The War-Mongers Will Lose Their Fucking Minds.....
http://security.blogs.cnn.com/2014/02/24...?hpt=hp_t1

Quote:The Department of Defense plans to scale down the nation's Army to its pre-World War II size and do away with an entire class of Air Force attack jets in an attempt to cut military spending, which mushroomed after the attacks of September 11, 2001, according to reports.

Excuse me if I'm too cynical and think that the defense contractor's lobby is too powerful to let something like this happen.
Even if the open windows of science at first make us shiver after the cozy indoor warmth of traditional humanizing myths, in the end the fresh air brings vigor, and the great spaces have a splendor of their own - Bertrand Russell

They are slapping John McCain's face right now to get him out of his early-morning coma and parade him before the TV cameras to demand the ability to bomb the fucking shit out of anyone, anywhere!

I'm all for it. All we need to do is protect our borders. We need the ability to project power, not to actually project it.
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

I'll believe it when it happens. If true, it's certainly welcome news.

The cynic in me thinks that Obama is manipulating the republicunts into arguing for restored defense spending and forcing them to attack popular domestic programs in order to pay for it.

I do hope it happens. It might be the only way to get the US government to stop fucking with every other country on earth.

This. It feels like a setup for a couple of minor token "cuts" when all is said and done.
"Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape- like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered."

-Stephen Jay Gould

Feel free to get your own military and bomb people to your heart's content - just stop expecting the US to do it for you.
