A good article….I recommend reading it if you’re interested in defense spending and the direction our military is going in the next 4-8 years.
What has to happen, as Christopher Preble explains in the article, is to undergo a serious discussion of the facts…not just the assumptions. And most certainly, not the politically expedient soundbites, real discussion of real facts. Why are we still in Afghanistan? What are we doing to find, fix and destroy Al Qaeda? What commitment are we going to maintain with Iraq….and how will that change as they move closer into the Iranian sphere?
