Gates Tries To Head Off 25% Cuts

Filed under: 25% solution — Tags: , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 6:09 am

This article suggests that Gates is doing the old “bait and switch”  – cutting budget a tiny bit to distract the critics.  But Lefcourt points out that if this is a “dangerous world,” most of our “defense” spending won’t do any good.  A woman I know said “How can we leave Afghanistan and abandon all those poor women?”  Building some schools will do far more good than missile submarines and another battalion or three of Marines.
