bush set to close 425 Military Bases

from the NY Times

For the first time in a decade, communities across the country are bracing for a major round of military base closings, and they are mounting aggressive lobbying campaigns to stave off cuts and other changes that some independent experts say could dwarf the previous four rounds combined.

Pentagon officials say all 425 domestic bases are under scrutiny, as the military looks to squeeze efficiencies and billions of dollars in savings from a cold-war network that has nearly 25 percent more capacity than what the armed services say they need.

I can't count how many times a republican has told me that Clinton left us defenceless after cutting the military's budget, and now that King George the Brainless is doing it, I'm sure that they'll label it a "patriotic duty".

Filthy hypocrites...
