You talk such childish bullshit. You claim only 4 wars were "necessary" - and now you can't defend your position. List the other 96 and tell us why they weren't necessary ---- I'll debate that with you. Hell, you can't even defend the 4 you CLAIM were necessary - and you know I'll agree with you about those As for the rest of your childish little attack, I don't claim to be all knowing [sic] on the subject, but I can damn well guarantee that I know more than you. Twenty years military, 4 years in the Pentagon Planning Office, and 3 years in WHCA (White House Communications Agency) guarantees that I have a stronger foundation, and a more profound understanding, than you. Why don't you tell us all about YOUR experience? You ask about $600 billion, but do not have a single clue what that money is spent for. Well, I'll give you targets to shoot at ----- Components Funding Change, 2012 to 2013 Operations and maintenance $258.277 billion -9.9% Military Personnel $153.531 billion -3.0% Procurement $97.757 billion -17.4% Research, Development, Testing & Evaluation $63.347 billion -12.1% Military Construction $8.069 billion -29.0% Family Housing $1.483 billion -12.2% Other Miscellaneous Costs $2.775 billion -59.5% Atomic energy defense activities $17.424 billion -4.8% Defense-related activities $7.433 billion -3.8% Total Spending $610.096 billion -10.5% Which ones of those do you suggest we get rid of? If you like, I'll be happy to explain each of those line items you object to. You've whined, you've spouted, and you've attacked ---- now, it's time to put up or shut up. So, we wait for: 1) Your list of 96 "unnecessary wars" with an explanation about why they are unnecessary 2) Your recommendations on what line items we should cut, with an explanation of why, and what we will do to backfill the resultant gap. I suspect we are going to be waiting a long, long time.
