John's got this pretty much right again. However he has one problem. McChrystal was a good general but he, John and most of our leaders have one thing wrong. We do not have to do anything to make a new enemy. Every day in many Mosques Moslem religious leaders create them. The radical Islamists do not hate us for what we are doing. They hate us for what we are or rather what we are not, namely Moslem. Not just any Moslems but their kind. I have many friends that are Moslems of all types & sects and they are tell me that they are just as afraid of these radical nut jobs as we are because they are not Moslem enough for them. THEY HATE US, NOT FOR WHAT WE DO BUT WHO WE ARE!

Citation needed. Although when the politicians tell us that They hate us because we are so awesome, it feels really good!
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...
