That's not the only thing GJ wants us to be able to do.

“If we align our approaches with today’s realities and the true nature of the threats we face, we can reduce our active Marine Corps and Army troop force by as much as 1/3, and still maintain the strength we need to win conventional conflicts and participate in reasonable multi-lateral missions with our allies and strategic partners."

See, the problem with Johnson is he wants to cut military spending drastically...which is good, but, not end our alliance obligations with our NATO allies and our humanitarian missions with the UN. I'm actually closer to Obama than Romney on actual military spending. The problem though is that we can't maintain our empire and be the world's policeman which Obama and to a lesser extend Johnson want to do and continue to fund NATO with not only $$$, but, with American tanks and lives when they need them and weaken our military. Even with our bloated military budget, we're already spread out close to the point of being too thin. That's one of the reasons Russia can have nuclear submarines swim around in the Gulf of Mexico without us knowing about it.
