Unfortunately, the last 'lib' left the military so depleted it had to spend billions getting set for any conflict....the military budget was so gutted during the previous 8 years as to leave a force without armor, soldiers without body armor (even though readily availalbe), backlogs of spare parts and provisions..... The military needed an immediate 55 billion just to get set to go into action..

Good point. In fact, we should have seen this thing coming a long time ago. Here what a liberal Secretary of Defense pansy said a few years ago:

Overall, since I've been Secretary, we will have taken the five-year defense program down by well over $300 billion. That's the peace dividend. … And now we're adding to that another $50 billion … of so-called peace dividend.

Read it again. This gutless liberal is bragging--bragging!--that he slashed the defense budget by $350 billion.

Congress has let me cancel a few programs. But you've squabbled and sometimes bickered and horse-traded and ended up forcing me to spend money on weapons that don't fill a vital need in these times of tight budgets and new requirements. … You've directed me to buy more M1s, F14s, and F16s—all great systems … but we have enough of them.

Read it again. The cry baby is whining that he can't cut budget enough. If he had his way Saddam would be living in the White House and we'd be facing East five times a day.

By the way, the name of the liberal pansy Sec. of Defense who made those remarks was Dick Cheney. I bet Hannity and Rush are all over him for those statements.
