I will sum up with the Cliff Notes version — They need money to fund govt programs and thus “WE” need to reduce military costs and increase taxes on the “rich”. Thats all this is. Move along ....

SecDef Hagel just opened his remarks with thanks to an underling named Hale for creating this budget and wishing him a happy and well deserved retirement which Hale is beginning forthwith.

Translation: the buck stops with a Pentagon retiree.

John Bolton and Ollie North are slamming this budget on Fox right now.

Hagel is a useful deflection for the kenyan. He was told by the WH what top line budget number to hit and he did it.

The GOP should escalate this and demand the obama defend this personally or his budget is DOA in the House. Just say the county needs to hear this directly from the POTUS. A slash and burn of the DOD is a national security issue and totally unacceptable.

the thing they are not mentioning is that in order to get to all these force reduction levels they will be dumping vast numbers of combat experienced NCO’s , whose grade makes them more costly to maintain , and they will instead fill the ranks with as many low pay new troops as they can find , leaving their leadership to the most politically accommodating O administration sycophants that still wish to remain in the down-sized Mil . The loss of these combat experienced NCO’s will be one of the most devastating factors of all this . They have seen it coming for awhile not and here it is . Will we all put up with this ?

To: LeoWindhorse; All

The Obama/Hagel doctrine — Cut, run, and gut. Taking money from warriors to distribute to welfare. Warriors to welfare.

The Obama/Hagel doctrine in future history books will go something like this; This doctrine was ultimately responsible for the decline and end to US military superiority in the 21st Century.

During this period several nations which had ended the 20th Century seeking nuclear weapons had achieved their goal in the last year of the Obama administration due in large part to failed policies in the affected regions.

Accredited to the Obama/Hagel doctrine which states, “the United States will withdraw at the beginning of all engagements to prevent US involvement with terrorist nations around the world, therefore keeping America safe, at no point will the US engage on the behalf of any ally for any reason, the administration is committed to running away from any and all danger in the real world faster than any limp wristed pants wetter in the history of the world.”

Furthermore the Obama/Hagel doctrine states that “because Obama himself is popular and therefore it is assumed that the Obama/Hagel doctrine is also popular it shall not be misconstrued when the Iranian’s and North Korean’s bomb the US and/or any of America’s allies that our enemies, which we don’t have because Obama is president, but if someone were to attack the US or its allies its only because George W. Bush was president, because as you all know, the world loves Obama, and the US doesn’t have any enemies. Also, the Obama/Hagel doctrine makes it unfair to be compared to Chamberlain’s appeasement towards Germany, because it would just not be fair.”

So, Obama/Hagel in summary — Limp wristed pants wetter’s taking money from warriors and re-distributing it to welfare...because there are no enemies.
