I am a strong proponent for smart defense spending and because of that I’m not necessarily a big fan of the recently announced cuts.
The biggest point that I think will cause these cuts to be painful to America is that a defense cut without brains is akin to putting down your gun but stay standing on the battlefield. Doh! doesn’t come close to covering it folks.
The headline from the presser I watched was how America would not be able to field a two war operation. I don’t know if I believe we’ve had that capability for 20 years or so, but I am convinced our cuts will cause us to be incapable of the operations we and the rest of the world will need our military to perform.
This is not a win.
