Arguing that the U.S. Military is shifting towards a more agile, more responsive type of force, the Obama regime is simultaneously decreasing troop levels. That doesnâ€™t mean that we are spending less money as a nation, we are still addicted to borrowing against our childrenâ€™s future. We are simply moving that money away from defense and into giveaways.
Charles Krauthammer disagrees with regime assertions that this is a wise and proper course of action. He says, â€œThis is clearly a giant shift of a social democrat, Barack Obama, as Europe did after the Second World War, of money from the military, which we are already at the bare bones, into entitlements and social welfare.â€
â€œItâ€™s not a balancing of the forces, itâ€™s robbing the military to inflate the entitlement state, and we are going to pay a high price.â€
He points out, â€œEurope had us behind them in the last fifty years when it had no military, thereâ€™s nobody whoâ€™ll back us up if we strip our military and dilute it as weâ€™re doing now.
