Wang Chung Gets It

The "military industrial complex must be fed;

The United States is spending too much on its military in light of its recent economic troubles, China's top general said Monday while playing down his country’s own military capabilities.

The chief of the General Staff of the People’s Liberation Army, Chen Bingde, told reporters he thought the U.S. should cut back on defense spending for the sake of its taxpayers. He was speaking during a joint news conference in which he traded barbs with visiting U.S. counterpart Adm. Mike Mullen.

"I know the U.S. is still recovering from the financial crisis," Chen said. "Under such circumstances, it is still spending a lot of money on its military and isn’t that placing too much pressure on the taxpayers?

"If the U.S. could reduce its military spending a bit and spend more on improving the livelihood of the American people ... wouldn’t that be a better scenario?" he said.

China’s military budget of $95 billion this year is the world’s second-highest after Washington’s planned $650 billion in defense spending.

How about instead of $650 billion for killing other people, we just all get health care without having to pay out-of-pocket?

Oh.. right.. the islamic boogeyman is going to get us.. or something.


You know what would go through Doug's mind if he read that? He'd be thinking about the disappointment of finding out that Asian men really do have small peckers..

... or he'd be convinced that the Chinese are just trying to get us to stop buying expensive machines of death so that they can conquer us. I think that was an episode of South Park last month..

Both are likely thoughts that pass through his 172 IQ of a "mind".
