We spend more money on our military more than the rest of the world combined. You cannot believe that this isn’t more than just “the sky is falling” rhetoric by coddled bureaucrats and their associated industries. Our military budget is bloated and though blunt sequestration cuts may not be ideal, I cannot be convinced that we will be any less safe in the U.S. if it the sequester goes through.
I, along with Michael Cohen at The Guardian, have both been rather skeptical of this Armageddon talk from the politicians and military officials as they profess that the sequestration will destroy any national security that we now enjoy in the United States. So here is a good op-ed piece in The Guardian by Cohen outlying the ridiculousness behind all of these claims.
