Are many Defense Program and Policy issues dangerously converging to create the circumstances for a real “DOD Perfect Storm” exaggerated by a politically charged fiscal and budgetary environment? Will this situation hurt the Military Services, our National Security Strategy, and the Defense Industrial Base or is this “Sequestration Skirmish“just one more chapter in the Washington ”Game of Budgetary Chicken”? Most people believe it is just another round in the ongoing political Tug-of-War we have all come to expect out of our elected officials. But could it be something more serious this time? Rest assured, however, the political lines have been drawn on sequestration and defense cuts --and everybody has an opinion how it should be handled. And it is going to be a battle. Are we stuck in partisan gridlock, or can we come together as a nation and “Do the right thing” here? And, just what is the right thing given the National Security situation we face? Here's a view on what issues are, and what Microwave Companies need to know ---to understand what's at stake in the Defense Sequestration debate and how we all need to be prepared to ride-out the pending storm.
