Military Spending Cuts Dangerous for U.S.?

Ad Feedback

The Obama administration says it wants to make changes in military spending-- increasing resources in Afghanistan while making significant cuts in other areas.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates proposed, Monday, that reductions take place in missile defense programs, the Army's future combat systems and Navy shipbuilding.

"This department must consistently demonstrated the commitment and leadership to stop programs that significantly exceed their budget, or which spend limited tax dollars to buy more capability than the nation needs," he said.

Still, Pete Hegseth of Vets for Freedom calls the proposal "dangerous." Hegseth served in Iraq and started the group to gain support and awareness for the war on terror.
