"LIE: "He has pledged to reduce the size of the military and stop spending money on expensive new military systems, so we can redirect the savings to social welfare spending."

[horrors]

REALITY: OBAMA WOULD INCREASE THE SIZE OF THE MILITARY
McCain Advisor Kagan: "Actually, Obama Wants To Increase Defense Spending." Robert Kagan has been advising John McCain's presidential campaign on an informal and unpaid basis. He wrote of Obama's foreign policy speech, Okay, you say, but at least Obama is proposing all this Peace Corps-like activity as a substitute for military power. Surely he intends to cut or at least cap a defense budget soaring over $500 billion a year. Surely he understands there is no military answer to terrorism. Actually, Obama wants to increase defense spending. He wants to add 65,000 troops to the Army and recruit 27,000 more Marines. Why? To fight terrorism. He wants the American military to 'stay on the offense, from Djibouti to Kandahar,' and he believes that 'the ability to put boots on the ground will be critical in eliminating the shadowy terrorist networks we now face.' He wants to ensure that we continue to have 'the strongest, best-equipped military in the world.' Obama never once says that military force should be used only as a last resort. Rather, he insists that 'no president should ever hesitate to use force - unilaterally if necessary,' not only 'to protect ourselves...when we are attacked,' but also to protect 'our vital interests' when they are 'imminently threatened.'" [Washington Post, 4/29/07]

Blue Team vs. Red Team? Sounds like a wargame to me.
