    Or as John Pike, director of, puts it: “Would anyone care to trade today’s Navy or Air Force for either service at any point in the 20th century?”

    There’s also another problem with Romney’s claim. He appears to be throwing blame on Obama, which is problematic because military buildups and draw-downs these days take years to run their course. Just look at the long, slow declines in the number of ships and aircraft. These are not turn-on-a-dime events that can be pegged to one president.

    “Ships are so expensive that they have to be built over long periods of time, and at a pace that accounts for the retirement from service of other ships as well,” Janda said. “We also have to space the building out over long periods of time to keep our major shipyards working at a rate that’s sustainable over several decades, because you can’t let them go under and then try to reform them in time of war. So Congress and the president make decisions each year regarding the needs of the Navy that do not come to fruition for decades, making it ridiculous to give blame or praise to the president for the current situation.”

    Still, most experts we spoke to felt that Romney’s critique was misguided. Knight went so far as to offer this reply:

    “If Mr. Romney wants a truly stark example of diminished military capability, he should compare today’s horse cavalry to that in 1917, or even 1941 when there were still 15 active horse-cavalry regiments in the Army. Today there has been total disarmament of horse cavalry,’ he might say, ‘leaving our nation defenseless in this regard.’ His chosen comparisons are almost as absurd.”
