31 days, 31 reasons: Reason #7 - Invest in a 21st century military

Battles today aren't fought the way they were 60 years ago, or even 20 years ago. Today we deal again and again with gorilla insurgencies, cyber threats, the resurgence of Russia, potential of nuclear materials getting to rogue states or terrorists among others.  The thinking needs to change about how we equip, train and deploy our military.  Barack Obama has a plan to do this, to properly train and equip troops when they are deployed.  Review current weapon programs, update those that need it and eliminate those that are outdated.  Provide funds to defend the cyber space business needs today as well as deploy sound missile defense.

You can of course find the full plan on the website, where do you think I'm finding all this after all?
