DISARMING AMERICA

James Ridgeway's informative article "Secretary of Defense Aims to Privatize the U.S. Military" [villagevoice.com, December 4] is well written and accurate, and takes on an issue not widely recognized by the American citizenry. There are hidden consequences in this decision. Imagine what will happen—given the present administration's current tax policies and severe deficit spending—when America can no longer afford the private military it needs. The neocons will have succeeded in disarming America at the same time that they have made much of the world hostile to America. It's a case of "stupid is as stupid does." But given the demonstrated inability of this administration to look toward the future for anything beyond preserving corporate profits for corporate donors and its own re-election, such stupidity is unsurprising.
