Pentagon to change strategy?

“The Pentagon’s most senior planners are challenging the longstanding strategy that requires the armed forces to be prepared to fight two major wars at a time. Instead, they are weighing whether to shape the military to mount one conventional campaign while devoting more resources to defending American territory and antiterrorism efforts.”

Why not defend American interest and be prepared for two contingencies at the same time? As the only Constitutionally provided for spending item, it seems our National Security should come first in the budget. If there is any money left over after providing for our defense needs, then and only then should we considered whether to fund any other budget items or return the money back to those who overpaid it.

Drudge Report had this from the New York Times.
