1. That's not speculation, it's an informed projection and I couldn't agree more.
For months now at least we have been blasted with this Pentagon propaganda campaign designed to convince us they are slashing defense spending to the bone when there will actually be only token cuts if any at all.

Once we've been convinced that this lip service equals actual and substantial military cutbacks, and once we believe the USSR and the Nazis and Imperial Japan will enslave us all if we cut one penny more from the Pentagon's budget, we'll happily condone dismantling of our domestic social programs. Who cares if grandma starves and our children die for lack of medical care if (insert bogyman du jour here) is going to kill us all anyway?
