ABSTRACT

Restoring American Power: Recommendations for the FY 2018-FY 2022 Defense Budget   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Executive Summary: "This paper offers a general blueprint to begin rebuilding and reshaping our military. It is not cheap-roughly $430 billion of new money above the Obama administration's defense budget for the next five years, which is already more than $100 billion above the budget caps in law. The cost of further inaction, however, is worse: We will irreparably damage our military's ability to deter aggression and conflict. Indeed, as General Mark Milley, Chief of Staff of the Army, has said: 'The only thing more expensive than deterrence is actually fighting a war, and the only thing more expensive than fighting a war is fighting one and losing one.'"
