No...I think he knows..and he'll go along because he agrees with them.
He views the U.S. as the source of all evil in the world...and he sees the U.S. Military as the instrument used to force Americanism on the rest of the world.
So he's going to make sure that U.S. as a country gets taken down a notch or two and also that the military gets reduced to the equivalent of force of some third world hell hole.
And some think we should fight a war on Persia. Where have we heard that before?
I would prefer if our politicians said "we're going to take pork out of the equation, and look at what we can do to improve efficiency." Maybe bring in some organizational experts. According to wikipedia we have 1.5 million active duty, and 800k reservists. But then I hear the media focusing on tens of thousands (such as the "surge") and it's like... if we have a 1.5 million active duty personnel and we're struggling with two 3rd world countries and fixated on 10k here and 20k there, then my instinct is that something is wrong.
Personally, instead of throwing more or less money at the problem (and at a Congressional level, this is a pork question), I'd be interested in analysing what exactly is wrong, and how can we fix it. But maybe the military already knows what is wrong, and nobody is listening.
