Speaking of the Status of Forces . . . [Steve Schippert]
Let it be known that the future status of our overall forces is taking a hit. A big one.
The effective cost of the various bailout packages is that the expansion of the U.S. military that had been set in motion is now effectively dead. D-E-A-D.
That's the word in Washington that no one wants to talk about, proving once again that regardless of which party's administration sits atop the Executive, the military is the only federally mandated 'program' ever under consideration for real and meaningful cuts.
There is, of course, more slashing to come — deep and wide — while the rest of the federal government will either grow or create programs out of whole cloth if John McCain loses to Barack Obama.
Priorities . . . Which are yours?
