We Need More War Spending

Says conservative Roger Zakheim, a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a conservative think tank (with emphasis on the word “tank”). At AEI, Zakheim “will study and write about defense issues.” He is “a former deputy staff director and general counsel of the House Armed Services Committee.” He was “the deputy assistant secretary of defense for coalitions from 2008 to 2009.” He “helped secure the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act.”

I have said it before and will now say it again: The very heart and soul of conservatism is war. Patriotism, Americanism, and being a real conservative are now equated with support for war, torture, and militarism.
