    Cutting the military is not the same as cutting spending.

    where we could save and get the same product we should. you could save alot of DOD money by altering the structures of how we pay for things such as healthcare. but you still need a carrier fleet and you still need stealth bombers and you still need sattelites and you still need MOP development.

    in fact they are quite sure they will face off against us, and are preparing for precisely that.

    well, given our track record recently with our "allies" (sorry, Britain), probably not. In Kissinger's words, the US is a dangerous enemy, but a deadly friend.

    Quite frankly, yes...I believe the world trusts the US. Bush was pretty transparent and adamant about his actions. There was little question as to his intent, whther you liked him or not. And you of course know that world leaders and intel groups have on big boy and girl pants when it comes to global relationships. We the average citizen see these very limited surface actions and behaviros and we usually see them through our ideological filters (example-Bush evil for taking out a brutal dictator quick, fast, and in a hurry/Obama-benevolent leader deserving of his Nobel prive for ineffectively entering a prolonged war to oust a kinda bad dictator).

    Would the Chinese be fools not to be prepared. No they would not. Nor would anyone else for that matter. Nations prepare a defense for a reason.

    A President should not just decide to take out some leader he does not care for no matter what excuse he uses. Obama IMO should give the prize back. He continued and continues wars that he had the power to end. Now he is involved in his own skirmish. The actions of the US have not been all that great as of late. I believe that the allies trust the US as much as the US trusts them. The rest of the world sees nothing but liars and do not trust the US a all. Rather than being seen as the solution to world problems I think the US is now seen as the cause of them. My opinion.
