Obama unveils new strategy for 'leaner' US military

The US military will become "leaner" while maintaining superiority as it switches focus to the Asia-Pacific, US President Barack Obama has announced.

In a rare appearance at the Pentagon, he unveiled a far-reaching defence review under which thousands of troops are expected to be axed.

The tide of war was receding and the US must renew its economic power, he said.

The strategy is designed to accommodate at least $450bn (£290bn) in Pentagon cuts over the next decade.

The defence budget could also lose another $500bn at the end of this year after Congress failed to agree on deficit reduction following a debt-ceiling deal in August.

"So yes, our military will be leaner," Mr Obama told reporters, "but the world must know - the United States is going to maintain our military superiority with armed forces that are agile, flexible and ready for the full range of contingencies and threats."

Slowing the growth of the ,military budget isn't a cut.

Look at Paul's plan.

What is true, just, and beautiful is not determined by popular vote. The masses everywhere are ignorant, short-sighted, motivated by envy, and easy to fool. Democratic politicians must appeal to these masses in order to be elected. Whoever is the best demagogue will win. Almost by necessity, then, democracy will lead to the perversion of truth, justice and beauty. -Hans Hermann Hoppe

How War and Technology Progresses Society:

Whereas weapons have always helped determine tactics, tactics in turn helped determine organization, operations, strategy, logistics, and command and control systems. All these were driven by the technology in use and, in turn, drove it along. Thus the relationship between the two—war and technology, doctrine and the hardware required for putting it into effect—is two-sided.

To sum up, technology has always driven war, and been driven by it; however, contrary to the common wisdom, there is no sign that its role in shaping war has either increased or diminished. While the quest for technological superiority, the silver bullet as it is sometimes known, is as old as war itself, technology is but one of the factors that shape war and determines its outcome. As a result, victories due solely to technological superiority have been rare; and such superiority, even if it was achieved, usually did not last for very long. On the whole, the effect of technology has tended to increase, or help increase, the size of war, the power and speed with which it is waged, and the range at which it is waged. It has also expanded the environments in which it was waged. For millennia, however, it was incapable of changing either the nature of war or the purpose that it served.

I don't want to sound like a warmonger but this makes very good points!

Almost 1 In 3 U.S. Warplanes Is a Robot

Remember when the military actually put human beings in the cockpits of its planes? They still do, but in far fewer numbers. According to a new congressional report acquired by Danger Room, drones now account for 31 percent of all military aircraft.

http://www.wired.com...1/drone-report/

Personally I welcome a highly technologically controlled Military. It helps saves lives and target our enemies better and safer.

Its new CAAM missile, was in development since 2005, glad to see they have completed development stage of this long overdue system and gave it name finally. Sea Captor as it known now will have range of 20 miles and basically be UK's answer to point defense missile systems developed by other nations, notably US-German system in service RAM, Sea-RAM and RAM-2 (rolling airframe missile).

hopefully system proves to be very good, as sea wolf has proved to be very sophisticated and capable system. CAAM or Sea Captor CIWS will prominently feature on all new warships that enter service with the RN, Type 45s will have at least 32 launchers on top of their current load of 48 missiles, they'll be quad packed in to aster 30 launchers increasing number of missiles Type 45 can carry from current 48 to 104 missiles+ 8 harpoons.

Type 26 frigates will carry 48 of these missiles in two separate VLSs, type 23 frigates might be able to get upto 64 missiles, i am not sure as CAAM/Sea Captor requires less space than Sea Wolf System.

Self-steering bullet researched by US weapons experts

A self-guiding bullet that can steer itself towards its target is being developed for use by the US military.

The bullet uses tiny fins to correct the course of its flight allowing it to hit laser-illuminated targets.

It is designed to be capable of hitting objects at distances of about 2km (1.24 miles). Work on a prototype suggests that accuracy is best at longer ranges.
