b.s. in the news

Leon Panetta, U.S. Secretary of "Defense", stated today that cuts in "defense" spending would "terribly weaken" national security.  What a crock!  Are we back in the bush Administration?  The truth is that the U.S. spends more on the military than the 14 next-highest spending countries combined and six times more than the country in second place, China.  I guess the defense-industry lobbyists have gotten to Panetta and have infected the Obama Administration, and now they are going to stuff scare tactics down our throats.

Meanwhile, we are still wasting time and money and human lives in our occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the ending will still be the same -- defeat that we try to make sound like victory -- when and if we ever leave those countries... and who will we attack next to "defend" ourselves?

I could go on and on....
