Military for Welfare

Obama’s plan.

Barack Obama is cutting back the military drastically, which he says is part of an effort to make our Armed Forces leaner and meaner for smaller engagements going forward after he wound down two wars. But political analyst Charles Krauthammer doesn’t buy it: “This is clearly a giant shift of Social Democrat Barack Obama, as Europe did after the Second World War – of money from the military, which we’re already at the bare bones, into entitlements and social welfare. That’s exactly what’s going to happen. It’s not a balancing of the forces. It’s robbing the military to inflate the entitlement state and we’re going to pay a high price. Europe had us behind them in the last 50 years when it had no military; there’s nobody who will back us up if we strip our military and denude it as we’re doing it now.”
