    Just imagine if those bases weren't there.

    So, saving soldiers lives isn't important, anymore?

    Yes, put defense spending on the table, and give that group of corporate welfare queens a kick in the nuts too.

    Article is here.
    Not before 25% cut in entitlements. That's right, force old timers to eat dog food. Then, AND ONLY THEN, will we cut defense.

    You ever price dog food?
    What will it take to cut military spending? When YOU have to eat the dog food......
    We could cut the army and marines ground troops by half just by getting out of foreign countries, even those that are "unstable". If it means gasoline going up to $6 a gallon, it would be the smart thing to do....
