President Obamas recent decision to drastically cut future military spending puts the United States in a weakened position vis-a-vis despot regimes and terrorist organizations who are always looking for gratuitous opportunities to attack U.S. interests, according to Congressman Allen West. West says that there is a sense of weakness that we are conveying, and there is a window of opportunity that people like Iran are seeing.
According to a recent Wall Street Journal report, Obamas proposed cuts to the military budget could shrink by over 30% in the next decade-
The Administration projects outlays at 2.7% of GDP in 2021, down from 4.5% last year (which included the cost of Iraq and Afghanistan). That would put U.S. outlays at 1940 levelsa bad year. As recently as 1986, a better year, the U.S. spent 6.2% of GDP on defense with no detrimental economic impact.

Thank you Obama for enlightening us all that we only need to worry about nuclear tipped ICBMS launched from sufficiently large countries.
Boy, and I was so worried all those years about all the tiny nuclear missile submarines that are less than a city block long and less than 100 feet in diameter. I feel like a complete idiot
I feel so much safer now. Our president is such a genius, and so are the people who voted him into office.
If Hugo shoots off some missiles in to Overtown and Liberty City, is that a bad thing???
Colonel West speaks the truth.
Unfortunately I think it would take enemy missiles landing on a liberal icon before this government would take these threats seriously.
