    We definitely need to be careful about overspending on our military at a time of huge federal budget deficits.

    The Military We Need

    by Ben Cohen and Christopher Preble
    Ben Cohen is president of Business Leaders for Sensible Priorities. Christopher Preble is Cato Institute foreign policy expert.


    As the Senate begins a historic debate over the future of the war in Iraq, it should also prepare for a fundamental debate over the purpose of our military, and the tools that the military needs to fulfill its missions. The recent release of President Bush's budget for fiscal year 2008 illustrates more than ever the need to streamline our military apparatus and cut weapons that do nothing to strengthen our national security.
