So the Defense Department under President Obama is just another jobs program (“Defense budget casualties light on civilian side,” Web, Sunday).

At a time when we need to build and man air, naval, missile, cyber- and satellite weapons systems in preparation for conflict with China (which certainly appears to be gearing up for just such a conflict), we’re moving in the opposite direction. By bureaucratizing a weakened military, our armed forces will be ill-prepared for such a conflict, especially in the face of unsustainable debt and deficits. This is indefensible.
