Of course, the nomination of Hagel for Defense Chief is sheer idoiocy. We do not need someone to compliment our "Chamberlainlike"President. Obama thinks he will give us peace in our time, instead he is giving us war in our time. We are not even "speaking softly and carrying a big stick"as Theo. Roosevelt said. Obama is loudly speaking with "forked-tongue"and cutting our military at the same time - a recipe for disaster. Hagel, Kerry and Obama make up team set on a disatrous course for our nation.
