Obama says we can cut defense spending because we don’t need as much equipment, now that we’ve got ships that go underwater. Obama is so smart he would have just one great big ship and one big plane that can do everything. And it will be too far away from any real place that might need it, to be able to respond when needed.

The former SEALs didn’t ask for Green Berets; they asked for fire power to hit the targets that they had already marked. Is the Pentagon trying to say that our unit that handles the Middle East and Africa doesn’t have any planes that can shoot missiles?

And yet they want to cut defense spending so we have even LESS, since Obama is all about making us safer in the world? Good Lord!

There was no carrier group in the Mediterranean. Still isn't AFAIK.
