    You do realize that this is being forced on the Navy by the Obama Admin, in the person of Navy Sec'y Ray Mabus, an Obama appointee? Just another bullshit green initiative, by people who couldn't care less about our taxpayer money.

    The military also chooses to rent thousand dollar a week screwdrivers and to order "drip pans" costing over 10k a pop.

    The abuse and full on rape going on by the military industrial complex is out of control, but the GOP wants to keep happily feeding it.

    The Navy does have an avid interest in a strategic source of fuel that does not include getting it from the people we regularly bomb.

    The military should not be sacred from cuts. No way, no how.

    One might think that if that was the case they would be pushing for domestic oil exploration and drilling. This is a perfect example as why the military's budget must be cut.
