    “Over Cheney’s four years as secretary of defense, encompassing budgets for fiscal years 1990-93, DoD’s total obligational authority in current dollars declined from $291.3 billion to $269.9 billion. Except for FY 1991, when the TOA budget increased by 1.7 percent, the Cheney budgets showed negative real growth: -2.9 percent in 1990, -9.8 percent in 1992, and -8.1 percent in 1993. During this same period total military personnel declined by 19.4 percent, from 2.202 million in FY 1989 to 1.776 million in FY 1993. The Army took the largest cut, from 770,000 to 572,000–25.8 percent of its strength.”

    Those cuts came because of the end of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. When wars wind up, Mr. Cheney, military budgets wind down, as you yourself demonstrated.

    See that dip between 1990 and 2000?

    Between 1999 and 2001, the U.S. and British-led air forces in Iraq dropped 1.3 million pounds of bombs in response to purported violations of the no-fly zones and anti-aircraft fire from Saddam Hussein.

    The details of the bombings, provided by the British ministry of defense to parliament in February 2002, markedly revise a picture painted by critics of Bush�s airstrikes and that of a piece RAW STORY carried last week.

    The nature of the strikes differed; Clinton�s bombings were part of what some dubbed a �war of attrition,� an attempt to degrade Hussein�s hold on power without resorting to full-scale war, whereas Bush�s bombings appear to have been part of a concerted effort to clear the way for a ground invasion.

    A sweeping attack, conducted in January of 1999, rained down 25 missiles on Iraqi soil, killing civilians. Clinton said the attack was in response to four planes violating the no-fly zones.

    Clinton and British Prime Minister Tony Blair authorized air strikes on more than 100 days in 1999, sometimes several times per day. The bombings were ostensibly in response to Hussein�s refusal to allow UN weapons inspectors into the country, though critics alleged the move was aimed at deflecting attention from impeachment

    The Raw Story | Clinton bombing of Iraq far exceeded Bush's in run-up to war; Bush 'spikes of activity' questioned

    BUSH'S RUN UP TO WAR? LOL Then what happened?

    "The nature of the strikes differed; Clinton's bombings were part of what some dubbed a war of attrition, an attempt to degrade Hussein's hold on power without resorting to full-scale war, whereas Bush's bombings appear to have been part of a concerted effort to clear the way for a ground invasion."

    Oh that explains it

    Yes, the one Cheney gave US as the cold war ended, like today's military is supposed to cost US less BECAUSE we aren't in a 'war'? You do know there was supposed to be benefits to winning the cold war right?
