“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set… We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.” B.H.O

The last time I read a discussion about this quote, it was promoting his idea of two years of National Service right out of high school.

Lonewacko expressed the situation clearly:

What the Sam Hill? There’s nothing at his Service page (barackobama.com/issues/service) discussing anything near such a program. He wants to increase the size of Americorps, create a “Homeland Security Corps”, create other specialized groups, and give more power and equipment to the Reserves and Guard. But, considering that the U.S. military budget is nearly half a trillion dollars and they’ve got bunker busters and nuclear submarines and things like that, one might expect some sort of inkling of a plan.
