Obama Refocuses Military Away from Ground Wars

Obama Describes Refocused Strategy for Leaner Military - NYTimes.com: "“We’re turning the page on a decade of war,” Mr. Obama said. He called it “a moment of transition” that allowed him to look ahead and determine the kind of force – a smaller one, he said -- that the nation needs in the future.

Mr. Obama’s strategy embraces hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts to the military, making it an awkward codicil to the uneasy relationship he has shared with the military since his first days in office.

In a letter accompanying the new strategy, the president wrote, “We must put our fiscal house in order here at home and renew our long-term economic strength.”"
