Easy way to instantly cut back on Defense spending is to stop the idiotic green fuel purchases forced upon the Pentagon by Congress at tens of dollars per gallon of fuel for our ships and other military equipment.

the idea there is to WEAKEN the US military,and raise it's expenses so that Comrade Hussein can call for cuts and complain about all the "waste".
If fuel is too precious to burn,the troops don't get trained,and can't fight as effectively.
On his recent trip abroad, Mitt Romney observed an American taboo by not criticizing President Obama's military policy. But before his trip, he made his position clear. Obama has "exposed the military to cuts that no one can justify," Romney said.

He meant that unless Congress intervenes, Pentagon spending will be cut by more than $500 billion over 10 years under the (bipartisan) budget sequestration scheduled for January. This terrifies those who fear that limiting the growth of the military-industrial complex will leave us less safe.

But is that true? Even if $500 billion is actually cut, America still will spend...
