    I support the strategy with a diminished US role

    Let Europe defend its own sphere of influence with the US providing intel and air support
    Let Japan and Korea do the same

    We have a military larger than the next ten forces combined and eight of those are our allies. Time to back off

    $487 billion cuts over ten years under Panetta and $500 billion sequester cuts over ten years under Hagel.

    First Gore proposed cutting conventional forces designed to confront "traditional armies," such as the Soviets coming through the Fulda gap. Gore proposed more "special force" types. W and Rumsfeld initially, pre 9-11, proposed cutting personnel, including the air groups that now defend US airspace.

    I'm not sure what Obama's strategy is, though I approve of fewer deployments and the VA is making progress on disability claim backlogs.

    So, while I think it's necessary to alter the make up of forces, looking towards forces better suited to wars on terrorists, I'm not for isolationism.

    Our military's role is to protect avenues of free trade, and not allow any nation to impede other nations' trade. We get into internal political tuffs when either party (BushI for example) suggests coalitions rather than unilateral force.
