Obama’s response will be, “it a start” and then he will cut it more.
It’s now the Kenyan’s “fundamentally transformed” military. Swish!

So nice to show another weak link to make our enemies feel even more powerful under this sissy-pants administration.
They determine funding, but ask me when they ever bothered really opposing what the POTUS does with the military.
that’s the whole idea, the fraud will do anything that will help to expedite the fall of America
Didn’t Obama promise a “domestic” force equal in size to the military? And didn’t Homeland Security purchase shocking amounts of ammo?
