Good to see. But once again, the argument is given for shutting the superweapon business down, and taken as an argument for trimming it. So Bernie Sanders says cut the Pentagon budget by 10% and Horgan says cut it by close to half, but they really mean that the whole project is noxious, and contributing to our lack of resources for meeting real human needs. By the way, Horgan's article has another point of interest: the time line. Fifty years ago, he says.... but fifty years ago is roughly the BEGINNING of the now-entrenched tradition of immunity of the Pentagon budget from civilian challenge. Before then, Pentagon demands were sometimes turned down, military bases were sometimes closed.
