Obama ending two-war strategy

By Chris Lawrence

The United States should give up the capability to fight two major ground wars simultaneously, according to a Pentagon review that will be presented this week, a U.S. official said Wednesday.

The review will be publicly outlined by President Barack Obama, the White House announced. The president will join Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen Martin Dempsey on Thursday at the Pentagon to discuss the military posture vision.

The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said the strategic review presents priorities to guide the military into the future, but "they are proposals, not all of them set in stone."

The review sets forth potentially big changes in U.S. strategy, including, the official said, removing up to 4,000 troops from Europe and downsizing the overall ground forces even further. The 2012 budget request already called for cuts of 27,000 soldiers and 20,000 Marines in the next four years, and those numbers could increase.

The military would not maintain its ability to wage two large conflicts at the same time, such as it did in Iraq and Afghanistan, the official said.

But the United States would still be able to deploy troops and equipment to "deter a second adversary" while engaged in a major ground conflict. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has said the military needs to be able to respond rapidly to a crisis, even with a smaller budget constrained force.

The official said the report is not expected to call for massive cuts to weapons programs.

The review took eight months, the official said, and builds upon themes from the Quadrennial Defense Review conducted in 2010. That QDR called for greater cooperation between services, particularly the Air Force and Navy.

The official said the Pentagon will put forward a proposal to continue to allow the U.S. military "to conduct long-range strikes and protect its interests and allies around the world."

The review was conducted in light of potential limits on federal spending and the need to reduce the Pentagon's budget.

Currently, the Pentagon is committed to nearly half a trillion dollars in cuts over the next decade and could be on the hook for another half trillion dollars if Congress does not find a way around automatic cuts that enacted after the failure to reach an agreement on the federal budget.

    What's up?

    I found this article very interesting...please read!

    Do you remember the blockbuster hit film The Matrix that was released in 1999? You may not know this, but it has deep spiritual implications concerning the times we are living in and Bible prophecy.

    It tells a story of how these "agents" are trying to turn us into machines. We are closer then ever before for this to become a reality when they cause us to receive an implantable microchip in our body during a time when physical money will be no more.

    You may have seen on NBC news concerning the implantable RFID microchip that some people are getting put in their hand to make purchases, but did you know this microchip matches perfectly with prophecy in the Bible?

    "He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name...

    You also may have heard of the legendary number "666" that people have been speculating for possibly thousands of years on what it actually means. This article shares something I haven't seen before, and I don't think there could be any better explanation for what it means to calculate 666. This is no hoax. Very fascinating stuff!

    ...Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666" (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    To see all the details showing why the Bible foretold of all these things, check out this article!

    Article: https://biblewoke.com/rfid-mark-of-the-beast-666-revealed

    GOD is sending out His end time warning:

    "Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, 'If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name'" (Revelation 14:9-11).

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith...

    "In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned - by people who don't know me - or they've said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing," – Barack Obama

    ...but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what's in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface...

    "And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), 'I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'" (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk')

    Barak 'O'bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the "heights" of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw')

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama's home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found...repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God...God bless!

    "In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned - by people who don't know me - or they've said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing," – Barack Obama

    ...but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what's in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface...

    "And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), 'I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'" (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk')

    Barak 'O'bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the "heights" of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw')

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama's home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Seek Jesus while He may be found...repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God...God bless!

    Are you a busy mother without much time? Welcome To the bar. Having children especially young children could be extremely taxing on free time, ever return and resent your former self for thinking you were occupied before having children? The point is, time is extremely valuable and essentially that means that the time you do have needs to be spent as wisely as you can.

    The Iraq war was totally made up in the small mind of a dilusional president when they should have just gone after Bin Laden and then brought everyone home.

      You can't abandon a country that you have committed yourself to in terms of establishing security and a stable government. Walking away from our committments is a recipe for shrinking from our role on the world stage. We will cease to be the great natiuon that we have been and will become a historical, social, and economic afterthought. A nation that does not possess the capacity to defend itself in a sustained ground war will inevitably be challenged in that very arena. You cannot successfully slash the military budget to the bone and maintain a policy of "I hope nobody calls our bluff". It has never worked in the past and it won't work now.

    This article is anti-climactic in its assessment. The reality is that we haven't been capable of fighting to moderate engagements (our longtime Cold War strategy) since the days of Desert Storm. While we may be the most technologically advance fighting force in the world, our actually numbers of men, planes, equipment, etc has shrunk to the lowest levels since pre-WWII. Sure, we hold a qualitative edge over our opponents (for now), but the reality is that we'd be hard pressed to win a conventional conflict against either of the other two major powers (ie Russia and China). Please don't make the mistake of confusing our involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as significant conflicts, as they're not. By definition, but are low-intensity, counter-insurgency campaigns (contrast with WWI, WWII, Korea, etc). Unfortunately, our leaders are too short sighted to realized that the more the cut the less prepared we really are. This isn't a "Republican" or "Democratic" perspective, it comes from someone who is a long time member of the Armed Forces, and understands the nuances of "quality vs quantity" better than some beat reporter (or member of Congress).....

    If Fox viewers would turn it off for a bit and think they would realize if we were not in a war in Iraq for no reason the military would have enough money. In addition the tax cuts that have been made for the rich and that many corporations are not paying any taxes means some hard choices have to be made. We need a strong military and a big way to achieve that is to stop wasting money. How many complainers are also posting at the same time we should attach Iran?

        This is the United States of America, it is high time we began behaving like Americans again. Our greatness is predicated on our ability to defend ourselves and our allies. Anyone who believes that this country can continue to stand as a beacon of hope to others and a bastion of political and economic power is kidding themselves. The goal of our society is to balance the needs of one group against another. Sacrificing military might will provide a scant few dollars for those in "need", but will likely cost us dearly in terms of soverignty and global competitiveness later. If liberals want money for the poor cut military spending some, but also be willing to reform entitlements. One cannot be sacrificed at the expense of the other.

      If one could only get our adversaries to agree not to attack when our military is no longer capable of adequately prosecuting a ground war, all would be well. That philosophy, however, has a very poor track record. Every time we have slashed our military budget, we have regreted the decision. I suspect this round of cuts will be no different.

    We've just proven we need the capacity to fight two separate ground wars and now we want to abandon this capability? While I believe there is room for cuts in the military budget, national defense (not just in the sense of preventing invasion) is actually provided for by the Constitution; no entitlement programs (Welfare, Medicare, Medicade, etc.) are included. Cutting the military down to a shell-force will truly render it a "paper tiger" as Usama Bin Laden called us after we pulled out of Somolia in 1993. This appearance of weakness gave him the confidence to launch the high profile terror attacks of the '90s, culminating with 9-11. We must have a strong military in order to maintain our standing in the world. If we hollow the force, we will hasten our fall. Get the house in order, but not by destroying our ability to project military power globally.

    Once we went into the middle east, we opened a power vacuum that will eventually set the stage for some very radical groups to take over and call home. As we leave these areas, they will become breeding grounds for different dangerous ideologies that will bleed over into our territory eventually. We removed king bees that kept the nest in line and now a hornets nest is stirred up. the middle east will become a traveling wirlwind of destruction that everyone will eventually pay for. Bottom line give all cuts sometime to see how world events shape up.

Capacity to fight two ground wars is a necessity any country that wish to influence the world. Most two-front wars are not intentional; usually a country is in one war and then is attacked on a second front where it never wanted to fight. History shows that the incapacity to do so is why great powers lose wars. We shouldn't ever fight two ground wars voluntarily, as we just did. Both tactically and strategically, it is bad news. But offering our flank to prospective enemies is just as bad. Starting a two-front war in Asia was arrogant, but assuming that a two-front war could only be of our own making is equally arrogant. And equally foolish.

    It's a gravely dangerous thing to do, but we have to do it anyway.

    We have no money left. Discretionary spending, which includes defense, needs to be cut deeply – whether we cut entitlement spending or not. Although hopefully we will cut that too, since that is where most of our debt comes from.

    Bottom line, we have to cut spending everywhere. Everyone's untouchable program has to be slashed. These cuts are the inevitable result of fifty years of American profligacy.

    bottom line is the world cant support countries that have followed our wastefull ways. China now has a infrastructure that makes ours look like a playschool set. India is growing in the same direction. the rate the world is consuming oil it wont last. to many people. we are living longer and people are just spewing kids. fishing is down and we poison our livestock with drugs to make them bigger. chemicals on our produce. they make the cure before the illness. call me paranoid all you want but everyone knows something is really wrong. whens the last time you went a day without hearing something horrible in the news or just anywhere. unless you live in a underground bunker with no outside contact you havent. good day.

    The enemies of the working class US citizens are right here in the USA, and they own the GOP. Enough of the fear mongering B.S. thats been used to justify the military industrial complex welfare program. Focus on job creation in this country, and stop playing games designed to make the rich richer.

    "The official said the report is not expected to call for massive cuts to weapons programs."

    Figures. THAT is where the real savings are. Like the F-22 and F35, two planes with no mission.

      With the F-22 you are correct, there is no real air superiority missions anymore that can't be handled by current inventory. The F-35 is going to replace planes like the F-16, A-10, and others that are a mix between air and ground support. What needs to change is not that some of these are built...rather holding defense contractors accountable to fixed budgets where cost overruns are not allowed. Since Republicans are so big on the private sector, defense contracts should run the same way – deliver a product and then get paid for it...not get paid for years to delay and blow out the budget on something that should have been accomplished five years earlier and for much cheaper. That change alone would probably cut the defense budget by 10% or more.

    It's not the size that matters. It's how we use it.

    The thing that's going to do us in – LONG before any of our foreign enemies – is our ongoing concentration of wealth, the gutting of our Middle Class.
    Our continued energy dependence and the massive outsourcing of our manufacturing – to potential enemies, no less – will be our undoing. I believe the comic-strip character Pogo said it best; "We have met the enemy, and he is us."
