            Reducing U.S. Military Budget

            "Much of our foreign policy is driven by insatiable corporate pressures to sell military hardware to both the Defense Department and directly to foreign dictators. This happens even if it goes against the interests of our country178彩票, taxpayers and the principle of prudently allocated public budgets

            "Fifty years after World War II, tens of thousands of our troops are still in Europe and East Asia, defending prosperous nation allies who are fully capable of defending themselves against non-existent enemies. Yet, useless massive weapons systems remain on the drawing boards to further mortgage our fiscal future and drain money and talent from long overdue civilian projects."

            "President Bush declared the end of the Cold War 10 years ago and we still have a Cold War budget. We still have a budget that's going over $300 billion as if we still have enemies called the Soviet Union. When are we going to demobilize? What about the peace dividend?"
