The Obama administration proposes to diminish the American military through cuts in the number of men and women in uniform.
The cuts are not practical for a superpower and nation that wishes to remain the best hope for oppressed people around the globe. We’ve not been doing a good job at that role lately.
But that is not because of the loyal members of the service who astound by doing their difficult jobs very well. We still have the best and most feared military in the world. That is a good thing.
