Reducing the Military Budget — Examples in U.S. History

December 5, 2012

The article Repeating a mistake by down-sizing the Army again is a good read, it is based almost entirely on accurate historical references.  I promise to attempt to be open to opposing arguments based on historical references, statistical data and/or logical well thought-out analyses, but in this blog I refuse to post comments that are based on emotions and/or party-line cliches.

“Moreover, we have to remember the lessons of history. We cannot afford to repeat the mistakes of the past — after World War II, after Vietnam — when our military was left ill-prepared for the future.  As commander in chief, I will not let that happen again.  Not on my watch.”

President Obama

Brilliant speech, but leaves out one minor detail …

“Action expresses priorities”
