  • Wrong Move by the government
    Anunakisan
    cutting military is such a bad move for America's safety and continued prestige... as the world is getting tougher America will be getting softer by removing army personnel... While other countries as China, Russia and other extremists groups are getting larger, smarter and more sophisticated, this is definately not the time to reduce our military.... Bad Move America.... First your taking away guns from the people (which I have no problem with-because true skills come from hands, feet or weapons that need true skills for utilization-other than guns) Second you are reducing the Military at a time when the world is going through relative chaos??? and also after all of these decades when America has meddled their noses in other countries business... Not good government... Not a good move... (you will have a lot of upset countries out there).... KINGDOMS RISE...KINGDOMS FALL... America... with the decisions being made, privacy being taken away and most rights that america was built on... Bad move... bad move

    We are in a life time Chess game... we are in danger... Queen has been tarnished, Rooks are being over extended, Bishops have been eliminated and our front line is about to be reduced... Not good with a soft King in the back...

  • What?

    What in the world are you people talking about. We have a larger Army now than when we invaded Iraq. A country with one of the top 5 largest militaries in the world at the time. We swatted them aside with ease, and without using most of our active duty personnel. We increased troop levels to maintain a presence in two different war zones on the far side of the planet for 10 years. While doing all this we were also patroling the Indian Ocean for pirates and assisting with drug interdiction across the Gulf of Mexico. We also had troops in a dozen countries taking out terrorists with drones. We have spent a fortune in resources and lives and gained nothing. We are about to pull out of the last war, and the pirates are becoming only a nuisance to international shipping. We reduce the size of our military after every war. Our finances won't sustain these troop levels, and to even try will reduce the funds we have available for the next war, which hopefully won't arrive for some time. Most of the world is scared of us, because we can so easily destroy almost any nation on the planet with such ease. What more do you people want, tribute from all these nations for not invading and destroying them? You want military bases all over the world to keep everyone in order?

  • 100,000 soldiers re-enter Workforce
    Elliot_Foley
    With 100,000 soldier returning home, the last thing they need is to compete with 30 million ILLEGAL aliens who broke into the country and an unsustainable barrage of immigrants who are failing to assimilate into American culture (ie, 2 Chechen Terrorists). This ILLEGAL alien Amnesty is a stab in the back to our returning Serviceman.

  • Really?
    marxwj
    30 million of them? Where is your data to back that up? You really think our troops are going to come back and fight for day laborer jobs? Picking crops and doing landscaping? I think they qualify for a little more than flipping burgers, don't you?

  • 100,000 reduction of military personnel

    We have nothing to worry about. Obama has improved our military when he allowed gays in the military and placed women into combat roles.

  • Perhaps
    marxwj
    Perhaps we should plan on only fighting one war at a time. Maybe having a military that size is not such a bad idea. I know financing such an Army would be much more sustainable than the one we have now. I thought the plan was to shift those Army billets over to the Reserves instead of trying to keep them in the full time active military. It would allow them to keep up some of their training at a fraction of the expense of an oversized full time active duty Army.
