Politico explains President Obama’s Pacific shift in our military forces:
The Obama administration’s real change is not a shift of resources from the Atlantic to the Pacific, but the attempt to do more in both oceans with smaller forces. This White House is asking our military to protect U.S. interests with far fewer ships, fewer planes and fewer soldiers and Marines.
I have one small quibble here. Obama doesn’t honestly want our forces to do more with less. Rather, he wants them to do less with less. American power is an embarrassment and an anachronism to the progressive left — and the less of it the better.
Of course, some future President will inherit this shrunken force, and will someday be required to ask our men and women to do more with less. As a result, more of them than necessary will die.
It doesn’t take a genius to deduce whose hands their blood will be on.
