When Obama was elected he made a statement which I don't think many people understood. He said that "We are going to transform America". That is exactly what he is doing. He has already changed so much that our nation will not be able to defend us. If that is the kind of change you want, he is getting there. If congress doesn't pass it he will do it on his own. America, this is dangerous. You must read this book. We are not manufacturing the equipment we need so desperately. And when will start to make the equipment, it will cost us a lot. Do we want our military in this situation? I sure don't.

Posted 8/5/2010: The author is totally dismissive of American military power and leadership and completely misses the fact that military budgets and timelines have barely changed from Bush to Obama other than dates have been made public. The withdrawal dates have always been an integral part of military planning but as the projected dates approach the public had to be prepared in some way. The date for withdrawing troops was inevitable eventuality unless we intended to make Iraq and Afghanistan our next two states. The author does a grave disservice to the U.S. Military and this book is to say the least a disgrace. The reader would do well to consider the source: the author if a former underling from Bush II and fills in for Rush Limbaugh at times. He is a mouthpiece for the set that wants to reduce government "until it's small enough to drown in the bathtub". His kind have done far more to weaken this country than anything out military commanders have come up with.
