Iran seeks the nuclear bomb that its friend North Korea has in order to help bring the US to its economic, if not military, knees. There is also the Russian issue. If these threats and concerns are erased others will appear. Meanwhile we are still at war in Afghanistan, and in places yet to be named. We should not be arguing about whether to increase the defense budget, but instead arguing about how much and how quickly to raise it.

Leftists fail to embrace this reality, nor embrace any benefit of increased military funding. They have sunk to a new low. Perhaps this gives new meaning to leftists burying their heads in the sand.
