Pentagon Budget: (.XLS file)

2011: $712.655 billion

With the failure of the Super Congress, the Pentagon is facing a $600 billion cut over 10 years, or $60 billion per year. That would be a $662.655 billion budget.

Republicans and Pentagon officials are freaking out, claiming the cuts would "cripple" the agency.

In 2007, the nation spent $603 billion on the Pentagon and the nation's wars. Adjust that for inflation, and the total is?

$669.41 billion

Was the nation's military crippled in 2007?

No?

Then they need to shut the f' up.
