Over the past week, we’ve seen reports that President Obama plans to reduce the size of the US military and disarm a large portion of our nuclear arsenal. His forced Pentagon cuts will result in nearly 100,000 service men and women being eliminated from the armed forces. He also wants to scrap 80% of America’s nuclear weapons.
Obama is also pushing to revamp the military retirement system which would greatly reduce the number of career personnel. It’s obvious that he has no respect for those who serve in the military or who desire to commit twenty years of their lives to defending our nation.

His goal is to cut the US military budget by hundreds of billions of dollars and weaken our national defenses.

For what reason did Putin announce his plans to increase Russia’s military defenses?
