Septics to slash pentagon budget by 480 billion

Seems to be part of their ongoing strategy to "not pay any taxes ever no matter what". Which answers the question of which the Septics love more, their endearingly bloated armed forces or their historically low top-bracket tax rates. Who needs an actual army when you can watch movies of your countrymen saving the grateful rest of the world by heroically blowing up flying saucers for a much lower price!
They even make our SDSR look like small fry...

Every thing is bigger in America. Even cuts.
Still a long way to go in order to reduce that 'fat' $14 Trillion dollar debt
Anybody who didn't see this coming is an idiot. Hopefully the yanks will poke off out of the UK too, but it looks like the majority of the cuts will be US army.

EUFOR looks more attractive now, if we want the big toys?
Maybe we can pick up some second hand gear for much cheapness.
And still they have a bigger budget then every other nation combined! and not cancelling any of there 11 carriers unlike us.

Harrier Thought id say it before anyone else mentioned it

I like the way that the map includes Canada as a US territory - that'll piss off the Canucks

Monroe Doctrine, innit? It's only imperialism when some other country does it.
"So yes, our military will be leaner," Mr Obama told reporters, "but the world must know - the United States is going to maintain our military superiority with armed forces that are agile, flexible and ready for the full range of contingencies and threats."
Leaner, agile, flexible...
That's because the RAF have their own PR department these days.
Odd how Russia Today reported this as a shift of focus to obtaining dominance over asia and the pacific.
That's pretty much what the Prez said in Nov down in Auz and again in this article.

"As I made clear in Australia, we'll be strengthening our presence in the Asia-Pacific, and budget reductions will not come at the expense of this critical region,"
They don't really need the Army anyway, they are surrounded by oceans, friendly powers and whatever Mexico is. Anything they want to blow up they should be using sea-launched Tomahawks, B2s or submarine-borne SEALs for. The Marines can do extraction of friendly nationals if some place goes tits up. The US Army is just there to give dumb politicians even dumber ideas.
With a Marine Corps of 250,000+ they will still be able to "generate " global influence, the national guard(army) seems set to be getting a bundle of brought home kit, that's if it makes it back through the supply chain!
