Not to mention that it would be perfectly consistent to have, in the past, wanted lower defence spending, and then when we are in a war, want the troops to have the best body armour and other resources available.

Um… yeah, the problem is, war doesn’t actually work that way. You can’t cut resources for years, then suddenly have “the best resources” in theater and operative within a matter of weeks.
