Military faces historic shift
from The Wall Street Journal
President Barack Obama on Jan. 5, proposed a historic shift in the U.S. military's size and ambitions, scaling back its ability to wage the type of war and occupation that just concluded in Iraq as the administration seeks to cut defense spending over the next decade. Under the proposal, the Army would face a 14 percent reduction in troops — leaving it with too few to conduct two grueling ground wars at once, long a strategic imperative of the Defense Department.
