    Iraq was it's own thing. They weren't a threat to us directly, but they were a threat to our resources.
    Whose resources? I never knew Iraqi oil was considered American?? So it was a war over oil... Hmm interesting

    No it should not. It was bad timing albeit, but it is necessary. It turns out cheaper for everyone in the long run, and as an industrialized nation, we need the security of having at least basic health care. Maybe it ought to be slimmed down until we can afford it, but it is something we need. If it were done in the 90's like it should have, it would already be part of our budget and we probably would've made necessary cuts to be able to keep it.

    Panetta to Congress: Don’t balance budget with added cuts to defense

    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned senators Tuesday that they can’t expect to fix the nation’s financial problems on the back of the Pentagon.

    Panetta, a former budget chief and House member, said Congress should focus on new taxes and entitlement reform to lower the budget deficit, and said additional defense cuts will endanger the nation’s security.

    I highly doubt that defense cuts will endanger the US. We have a MASSIVE military force that ought to be cut. We spend far too much money for no real reason.

    This link is talking about an additional $500 billion to the $487 billion that is already going to be cut. He agrees with the already established $487 billion to be cut but disagrees with a Senates proposal to cut $500 billion. So he agrees with the 2011 $487 billion cuts but disagrees with tacking on another $500 billion which was proposed by some Senators.

    I see where you got confused. From your article:

    "Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey have said repeatedly that the military cannot withstand an additional $500 billion in cuts to defense spending on top of the $487 billion that is currently being reduced over the next decade. The additional cuts are set to take effect in January 2013 through sequestration, which was triggered by the supercommittee’s failure to reach a deal to cut annual deficits."

    Panetta supports the $487 billion dollar cuts that Obama proposed over the next decade (as I have documented), but not the additional $500 billion that would be cut by sequestration if Congress can't agree on reducing the deficit.

    We must have been posting at the same time. Its good to see someone else actually reading the articles that are quoted out of context.
