so it's all good. After all, aren't the actual troops pawns to be trashed without concern?
"In shrinking the United States Army to its smallest size since 1940, Pentagon officials said Monday that they were willing to assume more risk the next time troops are called to war.
But assuming more risk, they acknowledged, meant that more of those troops would probably die.
“You have fewer troops, fewer ships, fewer planes,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said at a Pentagon news conference on Monday as he formally unveiled the department’s $496 billion budget for the 2015 fiscal year. “Readiness is not the same standard. Of course there’s going to be risk.”
Yeah, the only risk YOU'LL face is saying "Oopsy, we guessed wrong; guess we'll have to attend a few extra funerals and express our concern."
I have no words to express my contempt for this bastards.
