Day 1 -- or March 20 2016.
Upon reading the latest intel assessment, tkobo put out the order to sell off and /or scrap all unessential military units.
Heavy armor like the m1 and m2 tanks are too be kept and routed to the Mexican border.
Said units are to be supported should hostilities break out, by national gaurd units which are also being moved to staging areas on that border.
The goal is to secure the border with Mexico with enough troops to hold off any invasion,while revamping the military from the bottom up.
Almost all other army units are to be dispanded with their personal reassigned to reserve to await their new assignments to more modern equiped units.
The airforce and navy will under go similar programs.If there is a better unit for the job that can be produced now or in the near future,it will be and the older unit sold off to support the costs.
The current state of the world makes invasion by sea or air unlikely,as most regions cannot rally enough initiative or organization to pull such a move off.
"This gives us the perfect window to revamp our forces" tkobo tells his military leaders."AND we will use it".
Military orders: bases
This will be the largest base closing move in the history of the US.Far too many bases are simply not needed.
"And they will " ,vows Tkobo, "not be allowed to consume funds that could be better used in research ,nation building,military rebuilding, or the establishment of more Red Haired Green Eyed Serving Wench academies".
Political: alliance hopes.
Tkobo issues orders to follow any possible course of action to win both Mexico and Canada into solid allainces.
"America will need time to complete rebuilding and restructuring""To this end we will seek will all haste and energy to secure our borders thru diplomacy".
Canada tkobo feels can be won over with the proper enticements.Mexico,since it has been openly controlled by Drug Cartels since the late 2000's is another matter entirely.BUT the effort will be made.
Hence the order is given for daily diplomatic engagements with both nations.
Industrial and Domestic :
In his daily conference with industry and domestic leaders tkobo states.
"Instituted Immediately, all heads of industries and domestic regions will compile lists of needs and ways to meet them"
"We will have a building program with almost no limited in order to meet the nations needs"
"Also consumerism is far too rampant""To combat this, the nation as a whole will be forced to choose their purchases more carefully as the costs of these purchases will be raised until such times as when the consumption of goods does not create an undue stress on the nation".
The industrial and military landscape of the US before the start of the above programs.
