7. Holy Crap!
The U.S. military is going to be "hollow out"!!!!

Because -- out of budget of over half a trillion dollars -- there is a $23 billion gap ... wow.

Does this mean that maybe Gates will have to order home some more troops from Iraq sooner than he planned? Or that a few of the 500 military installations around the globe might have to be closed?

Frankly, this attitude on Gates part is why I simply do not believe that Obama and Boehner are going to cut or freeze the Pentagon budget ... it ain't going to happen, folks.
