Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I do think that the only way you could make serious cutbacks into the military would be for your president to be a former General or Admiral, with a distinguished military record, and be a republican.

other than that a significant military disaster, that is obviously the fault of the military and cant be blamed on the political leadership for lack of funds.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
