    Yes through their elected representatives, who need to pass it by the corporate entities before the military can be informed what is to be done.

    I wonder what went wrong that this president withdrew the troops from Iraq, began drawdown of the troops in Afghanistan and proposed cuts to military spending?

    Perhaps his loyalty lies elsewhere?

    The truth of the matter with Iraq and Afghanistan, the withdrawal dates were penciled in during President Bush's presidency, which would mean drawdown talks had occurred at NATO summits prior to actually happening.

    Cuts to the military is a separate issue.

    And I believe what cuts they've made so far aren't terrible moves. Our budget *needs* reform.

    We can't continue to spend so much on the military when so much of that money could be helping our citizens. I mean, I want a justification for the over seven-hundred foreign military bases.

    Yes his loyalty is to the 99%, rather than the 1% that profit from military imperialism. That helps explain why the majority of Wall Street donations are going to Romney.

    With all of the inspections the IAEA have performed, why would you doubt that documentation exists exhibiting Iranian nuclear markers?

    Well, what do you believe?

    More than 1% profit from military imperialism. CT, for one, would go totally belly up if world peace struck tomorrow.
