Pentagon Proposes Pre-World War II Level for Army


Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s budget proposal would eliminate an entire class of Air Force attack jets and scale back the size of the Army not just to pre-9/11 levels, but to the force’s size in 1940.
So what happens when we scale back to those levels.  It invited war from Japan and Germany in the 1040's and the Clinton cutbacks in the 90's led to the al Qaeda wars with a military that needed more troops and equipment.  Why do we keep repeating these mistakes?
