BTW, the Pentagon has tried to scale back the size of the active duty forces and then use the Guard and Reserves in times of need, you're looking at the results of that plan in Iraq. When that actually gets put into use people get very angry that the active duty Army isn't large enough to handle the task on their own.
Please note that 98% of what I say is my opinion and/or my "version" of the facts. Most of what I say is rumor with little to no evidence to back it up, just something I picked up somewhere.

I will concede to your vastly superior knowledge of US Politics and Military Affairs, along with United States Constitutional law, no doubt garnered from your years woking within the realm.

Oh, it's not from working within, it is merely from observation. Technically congress should control the budget, but that doesn't really happen anymore. And the pentagon did decide to have the National Guard and Reserves
take up more active roles in military operations as part of the post-Vietnam rebuild and reorganization of the military.
