America Abroad: The Consequences of Shrinking America's Military

Airs Sunday, July 20 at 6 p.m.  The Pentagon has announced plans to shrink the U.S. Military to pre-World War II levels following the end of the war in Iraq and the continued withdrawal from Afghanistan.  On this edition of America Abroad, we hear reaction to a smaller U.S. Military from allies in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East about whether America's ability to advance its interests is compromised. Also, defense experts and military veterans discuss whether a smaller US military would embolden other countries like Russia to test America's willingness to engage.
