    Rumsfeld: Attack Imminent If Congress Cuts Defense

    Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld warned that it will only be a matter of time before America endures another terrorist attack if Congress ends up blaming the defense budget for this country’s red ink woes. “The Department of Defense is not what’s causing the debt and the deficit. It’s the entitlement programs,” he told HUMAN EVENTS in an exclusive interview. “If we make that mistake, we’re doomed to suffer another attack of some kind, and our intelligence will be less strong and less effective.”

    Clearly not an objective voice.

    Nonsense. Conventional military has little or no effect defending us from terrorist attacks. Indeed, it’s only exacerbated the problem.

    Terrorism is best combated with intelligence and security efforts, not guns, tanks, and bombs.

    It is only a matter of time till we have another terrorist attack of some type regardless of our level of military spending.
    1 day, 1 year, 5 years, 1,000 years all is a matter of time.

    Just more fearmongering by rummy.

    This is the same guy that said he doubted if the Iraq war would last 6 months. And would cost 40 billion tops.
    So we should really listen to this guy?

    So according to Rummy, the US needs to continue to spend more on defense than the entire world combined while combating Third World terrorist who's budget is maybe $50,000 tops.
    Rummy just want to keep on feeding the Military-Industrial Complex's bottomless trough.
