    Simple...reduce the size of the military. Cut it by a 1/4 and the supply/readiness problems will magically disappear as the same amount of money will go towards supporting only 3/4's the size of the present military.

    And to those strategica ignoramuses who say America needs the present size to defend herself?

    Prove it.

    Show me data/facts (NOT OPINIONS - they mean NOTHING) ONLY from unbiased sources that proves 100% that America requires the present sized military to protect it's sovereignty?

    Answer...you cannot.
    Will the needs of the US Military be reduced 25% worldwide?

    Will terrorists and other world conflicts automatically taper off to meet our reduction of forces?

    Do you enjoy seeing a reduced military that has to ramp up operational tempo due to reduced numbers?

    Military families not seeing their loved ones up 12 - 16 months at a time?

    The blame lies with the politicians who insist on being the world's babysitter, so why don't you take it up with them. Until then, the soldiers, sailors, and airmen deserve to very best we have available to them.

    I never claimed that they did.

    Just don't see the need for more US bang bangs. Other abilities off the battle field to make use of the inevitable military victory.
