"We believe [Gates's] proposal regarding these 40-plus programs will likely include proposed cancellations and bold, substantial cuts," Morgan Stanley's research division told investors in a note late Thursday. "Programs almost certain to be covered," the analysts predicted, citing "sources and trade press" reports, include all three major fighter aircraft programs - the F-22, F-35, and F/A-18 - as well as the Littoral Combat Ship, a small warship designed to operate close to shore that is under contract to Bath.
WTF is going on? Obama is actually eliminating jobs and weakening our country. Defence spending is the largest engine for domestic job creation and technology advancement. I'm pissed beyond what words could express!!!

Yeah, its disturbing along with everything else the Dems are doing including the 3.6 trillion dollar spending spree they just passed in the House and the Senate.

What I am concerned about is the intentions with these cuts. How far can they go, and what does it mean for our defense? Its all just plain disturbing.

Liberty once lost, is lost forever.

Democrats are notorious for gutting the defense industry when they are in office...

If you didn't see this coming then shame on you. The funniest thing is I know many many people who work for big Defense Contractors like Lockheed Martin, BAE, etc. that voted for Obama. They should have just started looking for work on Nov 5th...

Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!
