  •  The spending cuts are not real cuts, they're (3+ / 0-)

    reductions of outyear budget projections by the Pentagon, at least so far.  That means the defense budget will continue to rise only at a slower pace than project.  And all that still will depend on the annual NDAA proposals and outcomes.  Combine military spending with Homeland Security, Intelligence, and all programs associated with defense, security, and intelligence and it easily tops $1 trillion per year.  I don't think a real discussion about cutting this budget can occur without a real discussion about the U.S. role in the world.
