Ballon Juice has the details:
2009 Pentagon budget: $513 billion
2010 proposed Pentagon budget: $534 billion
Yes indeedy, sending troops into battle without battle armor, uparmored Humvees, etc., for multiple stop-lossed terms in multiple war then underfunding military hospitals until the veterans are competing with rats for their meagre dinners while stewing in their own feces, is not gutting the military. Rather, giving the military $21B more than their current budget is "gutting the military". Alrighty, then!
