Change and hope

Christopher Preble @ Cato -- On balance, the Obama administration’s Nuclear Posture Review signals more continuity than change. Unfortunately, it fails to set the stage for dramatic and necessary changes to a bloated and outdated force structure because it reaffirms the U.S. commitment to other countries that imposes a huge burden on our military and on U.S. taxpayers. Two decades after the fall of the Soviet Union, the United States continues to carry the burden for security in Europe and East Asia. The costs of this burden are growing, but the Nuclear Posture Review merely sets the stage for the continuation of this worrisome trend.

Тренд?! Да это американская национальная идея!
