President Eisenhower warned us about THE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX http://bit.ly/9ee1Gg

The U.S. spends 43% of all the money spent on defense .... and we're less than 5% of the world's population

the proposed 7% cut in Defense Spending,
should be considered a major insult by the American people....
the fraud rate, alone, in defense spending, is likely considerably higher than that.

Hopefully cooler heads will prevail. It has been said that we are trying to tone it down

War is hell, and very expensive in terms of life, and treasure. There are those who will attempt to use this to attempt to increase our already exorbitant Defense Spending. As Eisenhower said ... Beware the Military Industrial Complex .... Newt Gingrich said he would have bombed North Korea long ago ... there are a lot of warmongers in our country. Even Romney wanted to increase our Defense Spending by $200 billion/year. It's very profitable for the wealthy, and the corporations.
