Yesterday’s “leak” that the Army would cut 40,000 troops was nothing new. It was actually announced by General Odierno earlier this year. What’s going on here? Scare people into opposing any military cuts. Meanwhile military spending increases — even with the “sequester.”

Are you joking? No stability in the Balkans? All the former Yugoslav republics are now democracies. And it's a hundred times more stable than when Europe and the u.s watched on as the Serbs where levelling Sarajevo.
