Defense Spending

This article is a reply to a Washington Post editorial by Robert Kagan on why we shouldn't cut defense spending. The article argues that Kagan got his facts wrong, that the proposed budget is, in fact, a small increase, and that there are areas of Pentagon spending that can and should be cut (mostly costly and unneeded weapons programs), while spending on increasing the well-being of soldiers, their families, and veterans should be increased while the economy is in such difficulties.
