Instead of cutting back on our armed forces we had better reinstate the draft. It would get some of our useless youth on track and away from their Mommies. It would also make our country stronger in defense. We keep cutting back to save a dollar. If this country would stop supporting the rest of the countries, that hate us anyway, we would have money. It is trying to buy friends ... it doesn't work.
Also, we need to build our industry back up. That is a big factor that saved us in World War II. If we were to get into another all out war like 1941 we do not have the industry plants to convert into defense plants. We are contracting too much to other countries. This will surley bite us in the butt some day. Also, we had better stop sitting on our duffs and letting our politicians and atheist push God out of the USA. This country was based on freedom of religion and God has blessed us for it. LET'S NOT FORGET !!

Cuts are made because the AF has been top heavy, especially in the SNCO (E-7/8) and officer (O-3/4/5) ranks, for some time. Managers managing managers. Buying high tech weapons systems is the priority now, and something has to give, and it's people. "Do more with less" is the motto, but it's tough when there is a constant rotation of troops shipped around the world.
