    WASHINGTON (AP) — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel proposed shrinking the Army, closing military bases and making other military-wide savings Monday as part of a broad reshaping of priorities after more than a decade of war.

    Hagel outlined his vision in a speech at the Pentagon, a week before President Barack Obama is to submit his 2015 budget plan to Congress.

    Hagel said the military must adjust to the reality of smaller budgets, even as the United States faces a more volatile, more unpredictable world that requires a more nimble military.

    Under the Hagel plan, which Congress could change, the active-duty Army would shrink from its current 522,000 soldiers to between 440,000 and 450,000. That would make it the smallest since just before the U.S. entered World War II

    Remember the Government shutdown? They closed all them national parks for WWII,Korean and Vietnam vets. And allowed immigration rally at the mall. Now if the IRS riggs the Military vote there will be a coup just like the Russians did back in 1991 when they tried to remove Gorby from Kremlin. So How the secret service gonna protect the president when there are over 10000 men with tanks surrounded the white house? Theres not enough agents. Theres only 100 agents in white house. The Military can clean up the mess against Obama admin.

    We've been through this twice before ... Carter and Clinton ... both times, we have paid a heavy price. Will the left never learn the lesson?

    Right..Its always the GOP president will blame his predecessor. Like Bush blamed Clinton for 9-11 Reagan blamed Jimmy Carter for economic falures

    There is a significant difference between laying blame and assigning responsibility ... one requires facts, the other doesn't.
