3. Seems like we're taking the windfall from the sequester (which

 

Was removed for the military and only affects programs beneficial to the people), and spoiling it on war.

Can we at least have a discussion on a new tax on the wealthiest to pay for this?

5. When the wealthiest are forced to pay increased taxes, the terrorists win.

4. If we're lucky, the Chinese will have more American Soldiers on the shelf, and will loan us. . .

money to pay for them, just as they did for Afghanistan and Iraq. It'll further erode our economy, making what we're "defending" less desirable with each payment with miss on it, but we'll have the satisfaction of "doing something" (even if it is something idiotic, and goes against our best interests). But what the heck, it's the next expected step in our gradual national suicide.

7. Simple..use the $$$ the Pentagon said it had on hand to invade Syria earlier.

Remember this spring when Obama was kinda-sorta-perhaps wanting to invade Syria over the WMDs that Syria was supposed to have?
The Pentagon stepped up, assured us all that such an invasion would not cost us any money, because it "had enough in its contingency fund' to cover the cost.
It mentioned numbers in the billions.
So, there ya go..let the Pentagon pay for the next big attack/invasion/ war in the sand box.

8. Cut the taxes of the 1% and

 

turn the poor into the street. That's the way things work these days.
