N. Korea is firing off a rocket soon that is 100% intended for ICBM purposes. Even though Obama is "yeller", the US can still be provoked.
And the additional emergency need not necessarily be military in origin. What if we need to dump another trillion or two into the economy?
Regardless, all these domestic spending increases need scrapped, and we should have a complete spending freeze on anything not DIRECTLY related to Iraq, Afghanistan, or economic recovery (and I mean direct stimulus, not bullshit spending and pork bills). Fix the economy, get it turned around, and try to get all this other crap passed in a second term. Now is not the time to tie up a crippled economy with a trillion dollars worth of spending programs.
