  •  making war is the cowards way (0+ / 0-)

    "national security" is the code word ruse for spending more money on the military. republicans have used it as a club to get democrats in the one-upmanship game of seeing who can propose a higher military budget.

    the debate has to be shifted and tackled head on to face the realization that our $450 billion year investment is mostly a waste of money, that it doesn't make us safe, it makes us poor and feared.

    if nothing else, the bushliar-criminal and neocons have proven that we built the wrong military for today's problems and that using it, resorting to it is a recipe for disaster; and that statesmanship is the solution. making ignoramus Joe Sixpack and soccer moms realize that though would appear to be an impossible task.
