It’s very difficult to believe historical cuts, while the Sino-Soviet axis is modernizing and strengthening their militaries — even through severe economic crises — are in America’s national security interests. America’s nuclear deterrent is collecting dust and becoming outdated, plagued by cheating scandals and the purging of critical personnel. Meanwhile, outside the nuclear deterrent realm, other high ranking officers are being forced into early retirement for daring to go against the grain and admit the war against ISIS is being lost. In conclusion, it’s by design, and going according to plan.

The U.S. Army could be cut down from 450,000 to 420,000 active duty soldiers should sequestration – automatic spending cuts across the board in order to reduce federal expenditure – continue with the result that the army would not be able to meet its current deployments.
“The Army’s near breaking point if you go that low, I think. Already we see the fact that people are demanding the Army do many missions — from West Africa and the Ebola crisis to now resurgent problems in Iraq, Syria. Russia of course posing a threat,” Carson said. “So the demand on the Army is not slackening at all, and at the same time, their numbers are falling.”
