WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon said Thursday that President Obama's military strategy for sizing the force is too weak to meet growing national security threats, the Washington Times reported.

It also said the shrinking U.S. armed forces, which are being downsized to fit that strategy, is a "serious strategic misstep on the part of the United States."

The warning came from a special panel of outside experts appointed to review the Pentagon’s 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR), a strategy for shaping the active and reserve force. — Source

Defense Panel: Obama Administration Defense Strategy ‘Dangerously’ Underfunded – Washington Free Beacon
The Obama administration’s four-year defense strategy lacks funding needed for fulfilling global military missions and the U.S. military faces "high risk" in the world unless changes are made, according to a bipartisan report by a congressionally backed panel of defense experts.

Under President Obama, U.S. military spending has been cut first by $487 billion over 10 years. That was followed by automatic spending cuts imposed by the Budget Control Act that included another $37 billion cut and additional cuts of $75 billion for 2014 and 2015.

The U.S. defense cuts come amid a major conventional and nuclear buildup by China and Russia, nations that have engaged in increasingly aggressive behavior.

    I couldn't stop laughing just seven words into this 'article' (a.k.a. media hand-out) when the words "independent" and "Pentagon appointed" appeared.
    Nonetheless, and come, come, now, any 'worthy' 'christian' must begin to 'under-stand' that one can't possibly have automatic spending cuts in the United States AND fund the Israeli military programs as well, correct?? Besides, we need to leave all the back doors open because time is of the essence and the show must go on.
