Reuters – WASHINGTON D.C. – President Barack Obama, rolling out a new defense strategy to shrink the country’s armed forces at a time of tight budgets at home, pledged on Thursday to maintain the United States as the world’s dominant military power.

“Our military will be leaner but the world must know – the United States is going to maintain our military superiority with armed forces that are agile, flexible and ready for the full range of contingencies and threats,” Obama told a news briefing at the Pentagon.
