I will be the first to criticize GW Bush for his 400 million dollar war than became 2 trillion. The problem is many liberals want to write a revionist history where the war was the chief cause of the deficit. It wasn't and isn't. As we now see under Obama's massive deficits they have nothing to do with war spending.
I think the US should cut all departments, including defense. We need to really ask if spending more on military than all nations combined makes any sense.
