Watch the movie "Why we fight"

A HUGE reason for the war in Iraq was because the politicians orcastrating the propaganda have ties to military contractors and military consultant groups.... General and President Eisenhower warned the American people about the might and corruption of the Military Industrial Complex.

There are MASSIVE wasteful spending going on in the military that MUST STOP!!!

Contractors are given no-bid contracts worth billions, all while our on the ground troops must fend for themselves.... It is rather disgusting.

If you support the troops, you should support military procurement reform!

Ask any REAL officer.....
Gates knows what he is talking about.

Congressmen who get campaign money from contractors don't.

Obama is talking about the F-22, a massively wasteful enterprise that has its tentacles in 44 states...hence the support in Congress. That plane was made for fighting equally fast Soviet MIGs...when was the last time you needed more planes to fight the cold war against the Soviets?

Didn't your God, Reagan, bring down the Soviet Union LOL?

The military doesn't want the stupid planes. It has enough. It doesn't want the care and upkeep of planes it doesn't need.

What about listening to the military do you not get?

It's amazing that those who can't stand the stimulus bill for no reason really want the F-22s for no reason. They are dunces without a brain cell to pass between them.

It is alarming how stupid some Americans can be. We would be better off trying to figure out what happened to the $8 BILLION in cash that magically disappeared in Baghdad under Bush/Bremmer.

You people LOST $8 BILLION in cash, actual bills on shrink-wrapped pallets, in Baghdad under Bush. You LOST IT. You didn't spend it. You LOST IT.

You idiots spend $150K-250K and more for a single mercenary in Iraq. Some of them make more than the military guy who runs the entire show. You guys are the most wasteful people ever.

No wonder you guys are anxious to spend $300 for $100-$150 worth of health care. You guys can't add.

"Why care about the turtles? Because the turtles eat decaying matter in the lake, keeping the water clean for fish, which draw people for recreation on Florida's only lake designated as an aquatic preserve.

"Even if you're against wildlife conservation, as some people are, you're probably not against traffic safety," he said.

"Some of these turtles are the size of cinder blocks. If you hit them with a car they become a flying projectile."

Not to mention the alligators and 60 other species of animals that become road kill."

just like clinton lost billions for the education dept. Iraq ; I couldn't say wasn't there. How about the hundreds of billions in u.s. bonds that no one in this administration seems to know about that were trying to be dumped for euros and the people were let go. Hell save the turtles then! Get volunteers to dig the tunnels under the road. Millitary first that's all I'm getting at.

We got paid that money in Iraq because we are worth it...and to keep half trained young troops out of harms way.

Why don't you specify what you are talking about.

Then, why don't you figure out where the $14 TRILLION promised to the insolvent banking industry has gone under the second Republicrack Depression.

Fine, have the Army Corps of Engineers dig wildlife tunnels to keep the lake clean and the highway accident free. Military is the same as all of us and, if we don't get single payer health care then the military loses the VA, Tricare and all other health care....Congress and the President and all other government workers as well.

It is high time that ALL government employees went into the individual, private market for health insurance. That should be funny.

Low life mercenaries and nothing more. No allegiance except to the almighty dollar and who regularly got in the way of the military.

Pure thievery.
