Making America weak, unreal.

U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned Tuesday of painful trade-offs as the nation’s military pivots from a 13-year war footing and comes under enormous budgetary constraints, saying there will have to be cuts to military pay, aging weapons systems and the size of the armed forces.
Hagel made the comments in a speech in Chicago aimed in large part at members of Congress who have demanded deep spending cuts while resisting the military’s main proposals for making them, including the closure of bases that are popular with lawmakers and their constituents. Hanging in the balance amid that tussle is not just America’s military might, but also its global standing, Hagel said.
