Leave it to the war mongering repukes to whine about the Pentagon downsizing the military while silent when bush/cheney/rumsfield started BRAC gutting the military and civilian employees. It would stand to reason as we end wars that we wouldn't need as much. Of course that word reason does not apply to repukes.

Pentagon Set to Slash Military to Pre-World War II Levels

Firing the opening salvo in a bloody budget battle, U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel recommended drastic cuts of billions of dollars that would take American military forces to its lowest level since before World War II.

The cuts in military spending, forces and weapons programs address the stark reality of growing budget pressures at home while pointing to the improbability that the United States will engage in a large ground war.

“As we end our combat mission in Afghanistan, this will be the first budget to fully reflect the transition [the Defense Department] is making after 13 years of war,” Hagel said in the Pentagon briefing room.
The reductions will come at a price, he said.

“As a consequence of large budget cuts, our future force will assume additional risk in certain areas,” Hagel said, citing gaps in training and maintenance and a smaller force that would be stretched thin if major conflicts broke out in several places at once.

The plan — which asks for $522 billion, more than China, Russia and the British defense budgets combined — is certain to face stiff opposition on Capitol Hill, where lawmakers will battle for every troop, weapons program and dollar.

Rep. Buck McKeon, a California Republican and chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said President Obama and Hagel are trying to “solve our financial problems on the backs of our military — and that can’t be done.”

The key components of the Pentagon proposal:

&#9830;The Army would be reduced to between 440,000 and 450,000 — a 10 percent deeper cut than originally planned and the lowest level since 1940, when it had 267,000 active members. Hagel said the current troop level of 520,000 is bigger than necessary and “larger than we can afford to modernize and keep ready.”

“Our analysis showed that this force would be capable of decisively defeating aggression in one major combat theater…while also defending the homeland and supporting air and naval forces engaged in another theater against an adversary,” he said of the pared-down Army.

Special operations forces will grow from 66,000 to 69,700 to deal with counterterrorism and crisis response.

"As a consequence of large budget cuts, our future force will assume additional risk in certain areas."

&#9830;The entire fleet of A-10 “warthogs” would be eliminated and replaced by the F-35. The so-called tank-killer, designed in the 1970s to go after ground targets, is not nimble enough and too expensive to maintain because of its age, Hagel said.

Cutting it would save $3.5 billion over five years. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., whose husband was an A-10 pilot, has already vowed to fight plans to ditch the fleet.

SHAH MARAI / AFP - Getty Images file U.S. Air Force A-10 fighters stand in line on the runway at Bagram Air Base north of Kabul, on Dec. 18.

&#9830;The U-2 spy plane, the stalwart of Cold War reconnaissance, would be retired in favor of recon drones. The U-2 would be replaced by the unmanned Global Hawk, which is considered to have greater range and endurance.“This decision was a close call,” Hagel said, but reduction in the Global Hawk’s operating costs made it a better bargain.

&#9830;The Navy would buy two destroyers and two attack submarines a year, but 11 cruisers would be mothballed for modernization.

&#9830;The Army would retire its Kiowas and Jet Ranger training helicopters. Meanwhile, the National Guard would trade the Army its weapons-laden Apaches for Black Hawks, which are seen as more suited for peacetime activities and disaster response.

CONtinued:

CONtinued:

&#9830;The Air Force would slow the growth of its drone program, increasing to a force of 55 around-the-clock combat patrols of Reaper and Predator aircraft, instead of a planned 65.

&#9830;One-percent raises would take effect, but there would be other benefit changes – making military members pay for some of their housing, cutting $1 billion in commissary subsidies and changing health-care benefits.

“Although these recommendations do not cut anyone’s pay, I realize they will be controversial,” Hagel said.

Blue Star Families expressed concern: "When too many of aspects of the pay and benefits structure change at the same time or there is too much uncertainty with the compensation system, we fear reaching a tipping point where our military families can no longer recommend service, recruiting becomes even more difficult, and our nation's security needs cannot be met."

&#9830;The Pentagon will also push for base closings in 2017, though Hagel pointedly noted that Congress has rejected its last two requests on that front.

His proposal came with a series of warnings to Congress that if sequestration-level cuts are reimposed in 2016, he will have to start chopping even deeper.

That scenario would mean retiring the George Washington aircraft carrier, mothballing six additional cruisers, slowing the purchase of destroyers, eliminating the KC-10 tanker fleet, cutting flying hours – and slashing the Army’s troop level to 420,000.

That much of a plunge would affect the military's capability to deploy into combat, said Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

"I'm telling you — 420 is too low," he said emphatically.

To avoid the worst-case scenario "will require Congress to partner with the Department of Defense in making politically difficult choices,” Hagel said.

They spend 3% of what the US spends. Don't hear an outcry from their citizens to spend more. May be why all their citizens have free healthcare and the US does not.
.

As far as "slashes" to benefits that is just one more Repub talking point. It is the COLA 1.3% for those that retire between the ages of 45 to 62. No benefits are cut, they simply do not receive as much raise during those years.
The one meaningful item in the constitution is to protect our nation and it's boarders. Our last two and current presidents have not obeyed their oath of office.

You can tell when a bush is running for office when an ex President comes out of hiding to reach out to the Veterans from TWO WARS he started.

George Bush DARES to Claim He’s ‘In There With Them’ About Soldiers Fighting in Wars He Started (Video)

George W. Bush is taking a break from painting his feet to participate in one of his favorite pastimes: pretending to care about the troops. Despite that he was willing to use a national tragedy to engage America’s servicemen and women in an illegal war, Bush claims that he is saddened by the circumstances our veterans face as a result of his administration’s policies.
In a rare public appearance at a Military Service Initiative Summit Wednesday, Bush showed he cared for the troops by offering a solution to troop unemployment: Drop the ‘D” from “PTSD.” Since it would, according to Bush, then be classified as a treatable condition employers would be less likely to discriminate against those who suffer from it every day!

Problem solved!

He says that the George Bush Institute has launched an initiative to help veterans who are transitioning into civilian life after returning from his wars by encouraging them to stay in school and convincing employers to give veterans a chance with bold new initiatives like dropping a letter from an acronym.

In an interview that aired on ABC Monday, Martha Raddatz asked former President Bush if the new initiative helped him cope with the 6,800 American soldiers killed and 51,000 injured in his war. Unsurprisingly, he feels this helps make things even.“No question it helps,” Bush actually said.“I have a duty.”

As if his sudden opinion that he has a duty to those whose lives he has personally affected was not enough, Bush added,“I obviously get slightly emotional talking about our vets because I’m in there with them.”

He praised the attitude of veterans who maintain a positive attitude despite the damage his administration’s actions have caused.“But my spirit is also uplifted when I visit with vets. As I say, there is no self-pity… They don’t say,‘Woe is me.’ They say,‘What can I do to continue to serve?’”

http://aattp.org/george-bush-dares-to-claim-h...

Sad he waits for 12 years to shed a tear and be "there with them". Too little, too late. What a hypocrite. Watch lil bro make his 2016 announcement. hahaha Like the MAJORITY would vote another bush in office. Delusional repukes.

Bush actually said.“I have a duty.” hahaha, he just forgot about it I guess....hahaha He should stick to painting.

"It's all being sacrificed ... on the altar of entitlements.

That's one thing I agree with Repubs on, less spending on needless programs. I say cut the military in by 75%. The US will still be spending more on military than any nation on earth even with this 75% cut. Canada seems perfectly safe and they spend 3% of what the US spends. Should they be afraid and just don't know it?

I agree. The Pentagon has told those dumbass repuke CONgress they didn't need a big budget as the military unwinds TWO BUSH WARS and with our modern technology (drones, etc) less soldiers are needed.

After Killing Your Job and Your Healthcare Republicans Are Now Targeting the Air You Breathe

It is glaringly apparent that there is no end to the ways Republicans are attempting to kill Americans and there is little doubt that even the dirty energy industry knows clean air and water regulations are critical to protect the lives of Americans. In fact, the CEO of Exxon recently joined a lawsuit detailing the deadly consequences of fracking in close proximity to his home in Texas at the same time he complained about EPA environmental oversight. When the EPA attempted to fulfill their mandate and oversight in drilling operations he said “This type of dysfunctional regulation is holding back the American economic recovery, growth, and global competitiveness. There are important questions about the things that people worry about, and we have an obligation to address them, and we devote a tremendous amount of effort in addressing those. But as long as we as an industry follow good engineering practices and standards, these risks are entirely manageable. It’s all just a matter of perspective.” True, it is a matter of perspective until him and his family’s life is endangered by the unregulated dirty energy industry and then his perspective changes to join a lawsuit to keep the poison away from his home.

The GOP’s barbaric killing spree is only matched by their method of killing off Americans slowly at the hands of the energy industry whose concern is killing the EPA, regulations, and Americans. At least the Republicans’ embrace of the NRA’s gun proliferation scheme for regular street shootouts means a quick death whereas starvation, ill-health and disease, or carcinogen-laden air and water is a slow painful demise that no animal deserves. Republicans have proven time and time again there is nothing Americans need that they will not kill whether it is jobs, unemployment benefits, good wages, regulations, the economy, and poor working Americans who are barely surviving.

Killing the EPA is a new standard because all Americans, rich and poor, are dependent on clean air and water Republicans will kill by toxins. It is unclear if Republicans will ever end their killing spree, and the danger to Americans is they are in a veritable killing frenzy like ravenous sharks in a feeding frenzy, and with ALEC, the Koch brothers, the oil and coal industry providing unending campaign cash as an incentive to continue, no American is safe.

Kansas GOP Candidate Gives The Worst Apology Ever For Posting Dead People Internet Pics

Tea party Republican Senate challenger Milton Wolf offered the worst apology ever for posting pictures of dead people on the Internet.
According to The Topeka Capital-Journal,

U.S. Senate challenger Milton Wolf sought forgiveness Sunday from anyone offended by his posting to Facebook of gory medical images of dead and injured people, and attacked primary rival Republican Sen. Pat Roberts for allegedly engaging in character assassination.
…
“Several years ago, I made some comments about these images that were insensitive to the seriousness of what the images revealed,” Wolf said.“Soon thereafter, I removed those images. However, my mistakes are my own and I take full responsibility for them.”
…
The Republican candidate also held a “political adversary”— Roberts — responsible for igniting controversy about the images. He said Roberts “wants to attack me as a doctor rather than giving Kansans a reason to vote for him.”

Um, no, this isn’t a political smear tactic. Wolf doesn’t get that what he did was beyond wrong. That kind of behavior might be just socially unacceptable for somebody who is trolling the Internet and looking to get a rise out of people, but nobody wants a candidate for the United States Senate posting x-rays of dead people and making jokes about them.

Republicans are infamous for their non-apology apologies, but this one takes the cake. There was no apology in his remarks. He doesn’t bother to pretend that he is sorry. This is just a conspiracy by establishment Republicans to convince the voters of Kansas not to vote for him in the Republican primary.

Sen. Roberts doesn’t have to anything. Milton Wolf has already done plenty to convince voters not to support him. If Wolf would by any chance win the Republican nomination, this would be a sure pick up for the Democrats because nobody wants the creepy guy who posts images of dead people on the Internet representing them in the Senate.
