Bob Woodward has Obama Derangement Syndrome. He was complaining that President Obama is not sending an Aircraft Carrier to the Persian Gulf to save money. The Sequester is impacting a War - OMG, time to freak out, according to Woodward.
If the US were being attacked - then yes, we need to crank up the Aircraft Carriers. If we have to cut spending, slowing down our involvement in wars makes total sense.
Very Interesting reading.
