    Obama following in Carter/Clinton footsteps to cripple our military by canceling needed projects and reducing our armed forces. From Redstate.com

    "Despite being engaged in a war in Afghanistan, what President Obama has termed the “central front” in our war on terror (or our hissy fit on terror as it is shaping up with this administration), the administration is pressing ahead with cuts in the defense budget.

    It is clear that the decision on the procurement of a replacement for the aging fleet of KC-135 tankers, and by aging I mean they entered the inventory in 1957, will be kicked down the road several years and the proposed replacement for the B-52 (vintage 1955) and B-1B (serving since 1986) fleet will be scrubbed.

    While the choice to not move ahead on the bomber perhaps has some logic the decision to delay replacement of the KC-135 is nothing short of boneheaded. Despite all the problems associated with the procurement effort, this aircraft is sorely needed.

    More disturbing is the talk is starting that the military personnel accounts will also be targeted.


    If there is one thing that the ill-conceived Peace Dividend of 1991-1992 should have taught us it is that gutting the Army by reducing it from 18 divisions to 10 divisions was a fundamentally flawed decision and one that should be rectified and not repeated. What we have seen in Iraq and Afghanistan is a direct result of the short and disastrous tenure of Les Aspin as Secretary of Defense who, to produce the Peace Dividend, devised the “win-hold-win” strategy that is playing out on the ground right now."

    It is Carter II. Those who lived through Carter I must never forget that. He will lose the war in Afghanistan and leave the military gutted. Liberals want that money to buy more votes. Liberals can't run the military without disaster. They don't understand what a military is for.

    The liberal Dems have ALWAYS gutted the Military(remember the Carter years)? The KC-135 has(a 1950s technology aircraft) needed replacing for YEARS.It suffers from stress cracking and metal fatigue. The rapid deployment of our forces are VERY dependent on the taker program. There are rumors that the Obama camp want serious cuts in the F-22 and F-35 fighter programs also. Not to worry who needs a strong military? After all to them the REAL priority is "SOCIAL PROGRAMS" to buy votes with!!!!!
