Yes defense cuts do hurt our military preparedness. To pretend otherwise is simply that "pretending."
What are we preparing for? We don't need such a massive army. The modern threads like terrorism needs different kind of force. Building massive aircraft carriers are just a huge waste of money we don't have and the debt is the huge insecurity we face.

The "pretending" is that we are rich, we are under attack, and we need all these expensive wars.
