Re: "500 make case against troop cuts" (TNT, 1-22).
Wait a minute!
The military drawdown we are experiencing nationwide is a good thing for all the usual reasons. We are mostly out of Iraq and Afghanistan. The major risks worldwide are few, and we still will have the most powerful military in the world.
The methods being employed may not be the best, but that is where we are right now. Thousands of men and women sacrificed their lives and bodies in two wars over the last 12 years while the rest of the population carried on with little or no sacrifice. Then I see 500 business people complaining because they are being asked to make a sacrifice.
The military owes them nothing, and we owe them nothing except a little sympathy. The view of the business community put forth in the article is self-serving and corrupt and should be ignored.
