Have Republicans proposed invading either country? No. Do we need to keep Iran from developing the capability to make nuclear weapons? Absolutely. Is saying we will save money by not spending it on military invations a legitimate spending reduction. Heck NO! Just as saying a reduction in the rate of spending increases is a spending reduction is smoke and mirrors, the ghost money "saving" are bogus. The negotiating trick of Democrats saying we'll negotiate spending cuts after Republicans approve of tax increases is like Lucy yanking the football from Charlie Brown just as he tries to kick it. It has been done multiple times, but the Demcrats still expect Republicans to go along.
