I don't believe Dr. Tilford has gathered or better yet has access to all the facts. While I am not an Obama supporter I will say that military cut backs began way before he took office. If we go back to to the early 90's I'm sure we can all remember the Base Realignment Commission Act that began to close military bases around the globe. Defense cutbacks are implemented to help our branches of military operate efficiently. Having worked in or around defense for over 20 years I have seen many job cuts that were necessary and in turn have saved tax payers millions of dollars. Many of the military jobs have been out sourced to private companies.

On the topic of nuclear weapons, how many war heads do we really need? Think about the impact the atomic bomb had on Japan. The atomic bomb compared to about 15 to 20 kilotons of TNT. Today's nuclear weapon compares to about 300 kilotons of TNT.

Dr. Tilford also compares the size of our army in 1950 to today. What he fails to mention is the advancement in our military's technology. During world war II a B-17 required a crew of ten to accomplish missions. Today one pilot can sit in a pod at a U.S. Air Force Base and drop a bomb with a remote control airplane (UAV).
