Phantom Defense Cuts: Where’s The Peace Dividend?

Where’s the peace dividend? American troops now are mostly out of Iraq. And their numbers are declining in Afghanistan, with about a third of the 98,000 troops scheduled to come home by summer.

Yet, defense spending is not declining despite tough budget times and a federal deficit of $1.3 trillion for fiscal year 2011-12.

This reality is obscured by supposed “cuts” being made in the Pentagon budget.
