Defense Secretary Outlines Budget and Personnel Cuts

#2
Most of the end-strength reductions won’t begin until 2015, after Afghan forces are expected to take over the lead in combat operations there.
I seem to recall having heard something similar from our defence review, politicians seems to be looking back at how they got away with the 'peace-dividend' in the early-90s and prepping for a similar slash and burn when we leave Afghanistan, presumably (in our case at least) so they can blow the cash on bribing, sorry "providing international aid to", China and India. Grumble, grumble.... :)

History repeating itself.
