This page strongly supports a larger, sturdier military. It opposes throwing ever more money at the Pentagon for defense programs that are wasteful and poorly conceived. But as a long-term investment in human capital, in education and job training, there is no good argument against an expanded, generous G.I. Bill.1
Say what? Since when does leftist philosophy ever support the troops, if the troops are not Communist or fascist?
A little harsh, I think not. The NYT’s continual undercutting of the confidence and support of foreign policy and the U.S. military mission directly assists the forces that wish to destroy the U.S.

Once again, the New York Times Editorial Board doesn't let the facts get in the way of expressing its vitriolic opinions - no matter how misleading they may be.2
In today's editorial, "Mr. Bush and the GI Bill", the New York Times irresponsibly distorts President Bush's strong commitment to trengthening and expanding support for America's service members and their families.2
Though readers of the New York Times editorial page wouldn't know it, President Bush looks forward to signing a GI bill that supports our troops and their families, and preserves the experience and skill of our forces.2There was a time when the newspaper industry actually supported freedom as represented by American ideals. For the most part, those days are gone.
If your children told such whopping lies, wouldn’t you wash their mouths out with soap?
