On V in Other Places: “An Afghanistan/Iraq vet says Romney should run the Pentagon like Bain Capital”

(To read more of our outside writing, click here. To read the entire "Our Communist Military" series, please click here.)

Head over to Thomas Ricks’ awesome FP.com blog, “The Best Defense”, to check out our newest guest post, “An Afghanistan/Iraq vet says Romney should run the Pentagon like Bain Capital”. To sum up our position: Mitt Romney wants to increase the Pentagon’s budget, but we think the military has enough money as is, it just doesn’t spend it very well. At all.

We’re going to include this guest post, unofficially, in the “Our Communist Military” series as an example of how the military is another example of out-of-control, wasteful, bureaucratic government spending. The military can (and should) learn from what the private sector does well. (Of course, as we’re now going to mention on all “Our Communist Military” posts, we don’t actually think the military is “communist”...that’s just a rhetorical device.)

Funny! We fire our troops and sell our military equipment to an overseas buyer and let them finnish the job!
