Listening to Robert Gates Live(Quadrennial Defense Review)
He and Obama are cutting production of any more C-17s and JSFs. Also the alternate engine plan in the current JSFs. No biggie, though. JSFs are poor performers and we have plenty of C-17s. Sounds like several defense projects are getting hacked today as well. So far, nothing he named is recognized by me (I guess that's a good sign). $159B to Iraq and Afghanistan, but he didn't specify what goes where and I seriously doubt it's general funding. He did say the majority will be used in Afghanistan. All in all, nothing too alarming for the American people or our military. The budget was cut (sounds just slightly) and I see no damage to missions, as far aswhat is being said here.
He is not recognizing that we have any current war operations, which is interesting as it allows the US to bail quicker. Hmmm... something might come of that.
