6. Defund the Pentagon.
Edited on Wed Oct-01-08 11:07 PM by PDJane
Bring the troops home. Dismantle the empire.

Doing so would free up money, give the chagos islands and Hiroshima back to the people who own it, end much of the world's poverty, free up a great deal of money to fix the problems that militarism has caused, and end a a lot of the pollution in this world and out of it.

The US military is the biggest black hole for money in the world...........and the largest single polluter on the planet. Want to save the oceans and the land and cut down on global warming? Fastest way to do it.
