13. Blowing up babies and women is a "necessity"?
Attacking sovereign nations that never threatened one American citizen is a "necessity"?

Is over 50% of the discretionary budget each year going to the PentaSewer a "necessity"?

What's hilarious to me is that there are still people who think Iraq and Afghanistan were exercises in "defense". What are we defending against? Were they going to come over here with their massive Air Force, Navy and ground troops, take over D.C. and burn the National Archive? What were they ever going to DO?

Very few on this board are "anti-military". We're more against an "offense-only" bully army for corporate interests. They can be doing so many other things here and abroad, but instead they're being used for the deep profits of defense contractors and oil conglomerates.
