15. The political attack on the Army continues
the closures fall more heavily on the people intensive Army. This takes valuable dollars away from the so called "precision targeting" defense contractors who can "destroy targets" more cost effectively according to the neo cons. However, war isn't just about destroying things, it has political objectives. Such objectives cannot be achieved without a large regular Army. Neo cons won't admit this because they have no interest in the quality or security of human life abroard, only the capital infrastructure and resources that they can defraud or take from other nations.

Another trend is the exporting of military dollars overseas to protect these private corporate interests.
