SO THE PEACETIME BUDGET WILL STILL BE AS HIGH AS IT WAS IN THE COLD WAR?:

Cuts will cripple military and make it 'hollow force' of '70s (Owen Graham, 8/21/12, The Heritage Foundation)

Unless President Obama and Congress change current law, our armed forces will face an indiscriminate, across-the-board cut or "sequestration" of more than $500 billion on Jan. 2, 2013. There is bipartisan agreement that sequestration will cripple military readiness and return the U.S. military to the "hollow" force of the 1970s.

The hollow 1920s are the finish line.
