Weapons Come Second
Can Obama Take on the Pentagon? by Frida Berrigan on commondreams.org (full text in comments)
Meanwhile, the Democrats over at CommonDreams are still delusional. I like Frida Berrigan. But there is no sign at all that Obama is going to cut the defense budget. He actually promised to raise it during the campaign. His much repeated promise to expand the size of the Army and the Marines. And his campaign website had more promises to increase training and 'modernize' equipment. Both are promises to raise the defense budget.
And, just in case there was any doubt, he's now proposing Bill Gates to run the "Defense Dept".
When will the Democrats learn? Not any time soon judging from this article. They keep spinning delusions as to what Obama might do, while ignoring all that he really does. Which means, if you really want change, the Democrats are not the answer.
