Let me make sure I have this straight: The USA is 100% bankrupt from homicidal sociopaths who lied us into two wars on credit cards. Now the D.O.D. is crying because they might have only a few trillion$ left now that they have bankrupted the USA. Would someone please hand the D.O.D. a mirror so they can see the problem?

Get used to it. Congress screwed this country and we’re all facing cuts, whether it be your job, your business clientel, or government services. There is no reason we should be spending more on Defense (in inflation adjusted dollars) than we did during the cold war.
My fear is that the military industrial complex will gin up some kind of threat or war to prevent any cuts. Please explain how how a 10% cut to an overbloated defense department will “decimate” our defensive capabilities….
