The seriousness of the cuts is the fact that the military has NO flexibility to choose what to cut. EVERYTHING is cut equally. The fact that they have enough flexibility to close down a PR unit instead of a military unit is fine. But for the most part this is not the case.

Currently they are reducing the number of Carriers from averaging 2 near the Persian Gulf to 1. In fact there are only 2 active Carriers at sea (a third is in training if I’m reading things right). Many units that were due for rotation are being left in place. This is cheaper to do than moving units intercontinentally. But that means their effectiveness and readiness will be reduced over time.

This is all so Congress can dictate to the Pentagon what pet projects (like upgrading 5000 M1 Tanks, buying planes the airforce doesn’t want etc.).

Here’s to hoping this madness gets exposed and done away with.

The military needs to reduce its spending, but it needs to be able to make these decisions based on the needs of the country, not the needs of some congressmen to get re-elected.

As much as I love the Blue Angels and the Firebirds, if teabaggers were REALLY serious about wasteful spending these two programs would be eliminated.

A comment on the NY Times site.

Notice cuts never touch members of Congress or their precious perks and even if they did, their PACs and corporate sponsors will make it up to them in spades on the back end

How true. To hell with all of them.
