The result being, alas, not that there is less war but that the soldiers of both sides suffer.
Those making the cuts don't have to walk through Iraq in winter boots with guns that don't work, nor lose their lives at 18 for the lack of body armour. Those making the cuts are the ones ever more keen to send the victims of their axe in to the fire.
