    Well yeah it is not news to those who are awake. J F Kennedy signed a bill to Freedom from War (1961) make the military smaller "just big enough to quell the peasants" and have the U.N. be the ruling force.

    This is one of the downsides to having a civilian in command. But that separates us from being a banana republic.

    This guy knows exactly what he's enthusiastically doing. I really hope for the sake of our country the damage he's doing, and not just to our military can be undone.

    We were not ready when WWII hit and it took the entire country to mobilize. Now with the new tech, a war could be over in a month.
    Plus our mfg base is all but gone.
    Big trouble if someone trys an invasion.

    Ground troops, yes.
    But there are bad azz weapons out there now that reach out and touch someone without ground troops.
    We need more, not less of them.

    To keep politicians from damaging our military strength and maintain
    The Constitution, and be able to turn dumb 2nd amendment laws around in reasonable timeframes.
    For the President, they should make it one term, not 2.

    The only people advocating no term limits are socialists, marxists and communists.

    I would cut the senate to 4 years 1 term, the congress to one term
    Both to have to skip a term to be allowed to run for a second and last term, then they go back to work like every other citizen.
    Make them all live and retire under the same rules as all the other citizens. No more fat pensions for 4 or 8 yrs service.
    If they want a pension on our backs, make them serve 20 in the military from the bottom ranks up.
    The forefathers intended for the representatives to be farmers, laborers, factory workers, retailers, fishermen etc; to be from the broad base of citizens, do their representing and then get back to their jobs, not become career politicians sucking the life out of the nation.

    American Military attacked from within. By its supposed leader.
    U.S. general leads fresh assault on Obama policies

    U.S. general leads fresh assault on Obama policies


    “In fact,” he said, “the evidence discloses that Obama has set the U.S. military on a
    course of unpredictable erosion and decay through acts that have demoralized the U.S. military.”

    This concern was reinforced by a survey conducted in 2011 in which only 26 percent of
    Army leaders said they believed the Army was “headed in the right direction to prepare
    for the challenges of the next 10 years.”

    This figure, Vallely pointed out, was down from 38 percent in 2006.

    Bottom line, said Vallely: Military officers today lack any confidence in Obama as commander-in-chief.
    Yet, instead of speaking up, he said, they are preoccupied with covering up incidents so they don’t
    affect their career, rather than meeting the greater need of “boldly leading their soldiers.”

    Hagel announces $1B in Pentagon staff cutbacks, amid budget talks

    Hagel announces $1B in Pentagon staff cutbacks, amid budget talks | Fox News

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Wednesday that he's cutting his Pentagon staff by 20 percent in an effort to save at least $1 billion over five years, as part of broader across-the-board cutbacks at the Defense Department.

    Hagel, at a news conference with Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey, urged Congress to avoid another year of mandatory budget cuts known as sequester. The military already is cutting tens of billions from its budget projections over the next decade, but the sequester made the cutbacks even deeper. Sequester supporters argue that the mandatory cuts are critical to getting the nation's debt and deficits under control.

    Regardless, Hagel laid out the details of the plan for his Pentagon staff, which was announced in broad terms last summer.

    "Much of these savings will be achieved through contractor reductions, although there will be reductions in civilian personnel," Hagel said. "Ultimately other headquarters elements will be implementing similar" cuts.

    The plan is part of a larger proposal to reorganize his staff and trim the budgets of various civilian defense headquarters.

    Congress, meanwhile, is trying to hammer out a new spending bill for 2014. With lawmakers facing a Jan. 15 deadline, some are pushing for yet another short-term measure. Whether lawmakers will keep in place the sequester remains unclear.

    Hagel has said that forced reductions in 2013 have put at risk the military's ability to carry out its future missions.

    "Congress must be a full partner in our efforts to responsibly bring down defense spending and to implement needed institutional reforms that maximize the use of our resources," Hagel said.

    Dempsey also addressed the controversy over a proposed security pact between the United States and Afghanistan. Afghan President Hamid Karzai has resisted signing the agreement for various reasons, and Dempsey acknowledged that a failure to strike a deal could result in no U.S. troops in Afghanistan after 2014.

    "I have not been told to plan for a zero option but clearly I understand that it is a possibility given the current impasse," he said.
