Do YOU believe we need a permanent presence in Europe? LET US KNOW! --

 Gen. #Breedlove : No substitute for Permanent #US   #Military  Presence in #Europe  - http://ow.ly/JEkMs

“Our ability to sustain our posture in Europe is going to be at significant risk,” if mandatory budget cuts known as sequestration return in fiscal 2016, Christine Wormuth, under secretary of defense for policy, told the House Armed Services Committee during a hearing on Europe’s emerging security challenges. Wormuth, along with European Command chief Gen. Philip Breedlove, emphasized the need to maintain a steady forward presence of U.S. troops. Breedlove said U.S. efforts in Europe were “essential.” #news   #opinion  
Pentagon budget cuts set to take effect next year could force additional troop reductions in Europe, putting at risk efforts to deter potential Russian aggression and reassure allies, top military officials told lawmakers on Wednesday.

Today in #US   #History : 1803 – The Supreme Court ruled itself the final interpreter of constitutional issues. Chief Justice John Marshall, by refusing to rule on the case of Marbury vs. Madison, asserted the authority of the judicial branch. The US Supreme Court 1st ruled a law unconstitutional (Marbury v Madison).

Was this a good idea to withdraw so abruptly? Or do you think this helped pave the way for #ISIS ?? LET US KNOW! --

Today in #US   #Military   #History : 2009 – President Barack Obama gave a speech at +United States Marine Corps base +Camp Lejeune in North Carolina announcing that the #US  combat mission in #Iraq‬  would end by August 31, 2010.

A “transitional force” of up to 50,000 troops tasked with training the Iraqi Security Forces, conducting counterterrorism operations, and providing general support may remain until the end of 2011, the president added.

As we sign off for the day, we give you this #Military‬   #Quote  of the day - enjoy!

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made so and kept so by the exertion of better men than himself." -- John Stuart Mill

Can it be done?? --

#US‬   #Military ‬ Plan For Looming #ISIS  Offensive Takes Shape - http://ow.ly/JGD0E (Via +TIME)

"Every U.S. military official says degrading and defeating the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria isn’t a job that can be done by the Pentagon alone. But it also cannot be done without the Pentagon. That’s the bind President Obama finds himself in as he seeks a way to cripple ISIS without putting U.S. combat boots on the ground inside #Iraq  ‬ and #Syria#military   #news  
Clearing is relatively easy, but clearing and holding Islamic State territory is the goal
