Trimming Pentagon spending, Mr. Gates said, "will entail going places that have been avoided by politicians in the past."

Yes. Such as impeachment.

Our heroes deserve every dollar and benefit a grateful people can provide.

What a sense of entitlement.

>>Our heroes deserve every dollar and benefit a grateful people can provide<<

Here’s a novel idea. Create a list, with the most important things on the top, such as, oh say MILITARY PAY on top, then the least important things on the bottom, such as health care for illegals, Congresscritters’ pay, the NEA, NPR, and the entire HEW.

Start funding from the top. When the expenditures total the taxes collected, stop at that line item.

Thanks a lot, Sec Gates. We do deserve better! I am currently on 22 years of service, and this is the thanks the Armed Forces get? I have never seen an administration so hostile to our military. Unbelievable!

Gates wants to cut military pay and Gates now wants to cut NATO...but Gates don’t want to cut Joint Strike Fighter which is a $1 Trillion Dollar monstrosity which can’t be maintained by the services because it’s just too plain expensive to even do the maintenance on! You think he’s in the pocket of the big industry leaders and senate and house armed service committee members that put him in his position to shill for JSF. Meanwhile our Service Members fight, die and lose limbs for peanuts while this old degenerate is planning for his big JSF payout...just the way “Washington works”...you think he’ll be on the Corporate Board of say Lockheed Martin? Bottom line...why do we need a stealth fighter that’s too expensive? Answer...so people like Gates can get rich. At the expense of the men and women who risk their lives everyday for our freedom.

Yeh lets do that right after we cut the pay and retirement benefits of the 535 useless eaters in the Legislature.
