Pentagon budget cuts are inevitable - Apr. 21, 2011[/ur Whoops, computer weirded out. My point was that so many people in here express disappointment in the Muslim culture when it comes to violence, yet the U.S always seems to get a free pass. We are the World's leader in violence. A defense budget as 40 times greater then the World's would be a good indication. We sell bombs, explosives, fighter planes, etc to almost anyone in the world. Every now and then, we talk about dropping nuclear weapons on sites (mountains) because conventional bombs don't do the trick. I know, we are the peacemakers. We need to exercise our beliefs against oppressed governments. We have the right to make a preemptive strike (Iraq) anytime we think our national security is at risk.
