DOOMSDAY Cut Would 'Break' Military
Form a Militia for Freedom sake!

Washington: The outgoing Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff pulled no punches during his last week on the job, saying today that the across-the-board defense cuts under the so-called "doomsday" scenario will break the military.

For the first time, Adm. Mike Mullen said this afternoon that if the Super Committee set up by the White House is forced to cut any more from national security coffers, the military simply would not survive.

"If you took a trillion dollars out of defense right now, that would break us," Mullen said during a speech to defense industry leaders in Washington today. So far, the Obama administration has committed to cuts of $450 billion over the next 10 years, including $315 billion mandated by the Budget Control Act that Congress passed in July to avert a national default. Add the $500 billion that would be automatically cut should the Super Committee fail to come up with a plan to cut $1.2 trillion and you get close to $1 trillion.

Re: DOOMSDAY Cut Would 'Break' Military
OP thanks for the post.

I work with a firm that supplies firefighting products to the military. Several orders that were pending have just vanished in the last two weeks. This makes me wonder if they are bracing for these cuts already and that is why we are seeing purchase orders “disappear”?

Any other suppliers out there seeing the same thing?

Well, it's the end of the fiscal year so you'll either make tons or get cancel orders. Money is so odd during Sept.

Wait until Oct 1, those orders (if mission essential) will be back.

Yea we have seen this before and is typical for the fiscal year end but these have been in the works for quite a period of time. They were not depending on the orders but just curious if they are preparing (even if it does not materialize) for a potential large looming cut by placing some things on the sidelines. Probably even prudent to save some cash now in the event a budget crunch materializes.

Oh fuck them.....

Every soon to be retired asshole from the brass shills hard for the military industrial complex before they leave the service, as they need to grease the wheels of the cushy private sector job they will surely get selling missiles to soon to be despots that must be forcefully removed at the expense of tax payers.
