In all fairness, China has the 2nd largest military, coming into that position last year to replace Russia.

The author's evaluation of Obama on security issues is one I share as well as many others:

Second, Obama does not see the rest of the world as dangerous or threatening to America. He has made it clear by his actions as president that he does not want to engage in a "global war against terrorism." The rising power of other nations, creeds, and ideologies, however unsavory, pose no grievous challenge to which the United States must rise.

Obama's views are reflected in his nonchalant actions and attitude. Months to take action on troop levels. It took a near loss of an aircraft and hundreds of lives to cause any action in security, he and all his staff wouldn't even interrupt their golf game or vacations. He can't say the words "Muslim Terrorists", that might offend his friends the Muslims. His "I don't care" attitude is apparent and obvious and could be very detrimental to his presidency should another building or aircraft be brought down.

What is encouraging is that this author finally broached the subject of Obama strategic flaws. The rest of the media is busy covering up and carrying on with their Obama love affair.
