Pentagon urges decrease in spending on troops

Pentagon urges decrease in spending on troops --Defense officials fear money will go to people at the expense of weapons 07 May 2010  The Pentagon is pleading with Congress to stop spending so much money on the troops. Congress has been so determined to take care of troops and their families that for several years running it has overruled the Pentagon and mandated more generous pay raises than requested by the Bush and Obama administrations. In the midst of two long-running [illegal] wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, defense officials are increasingly worried that the government's generosity is unsustainable and that it will leave them with less money to buy weapons and take care of equipment for Blackwater and KBR bl*wjobs.
