U.S. Military May Cut European Budget

Reuters reports that “the United States may be compelled to cut its military spending in Europe next year by as much as a fifth in the latest round of reductions under ‘sequestration’, America’s top general in the region said on Thursday.”

“U.S. Air Force General Philip Breedlove, who serves as both head of the U.S. European Command (EUCOM) and as NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), said the reductions will require NATO forces to work more closely together and train ‘smarter’.”
