Reliance on War Funding Account Allows Congress DOD to Postpone Defense Reforms

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The ability of Congress and the Pentagon to stash spending in the military’s war funding account and sidestep the statutory spending limits sabotages the budget caps’ role in forcing officials to confront difficult decisions, a panel of experts said Friday at an event hosted by the Stimson Center.The department’s overseas operations account (OCO) is “a budgetary disaster which leads you to expect resources to continue to be available when they probably will not be,” said Gordon Adams, who managed national security budgets at the Office of Management and Budget during the Clinton administration.The presence of OCO “leads to a deferral of hard choices and a deferral of decisions to the expectation the money will always come in from somewhere and it will be above whatever budgetary constraints there are and it will be ample,” said Adams, who now is a distinguished fellow at Stimson.The fiscal 2016 budget resolutions adopted by the House and Senate last month each include $38 billion more in the OCO than the Obama administration requested as way to bolster DOD funding without busting the Budget Control Act caps on the department’s base budget.Adams and Matthew Leatherman, an advisor for the Stimson Center, said the department should consider trimming the number of support personnel, such as headquarters staff, reported Defense News.One area of reform that lawmakers and the Pentagon may be willing to work together on is military compensation, said David Barno with American University’s School of International Service.   “That’s an area where I think Congress could be persuaded this makes sense,” said Barno, a retired Army lieutenant general.last_img read more

Tata Motors may bag Rs 350 crore order for military trucks

first_imgTata Motors is likely to receive a new order from the Indian Army for the purchase of 619 new high mobility trucks valued at approximately Rs 350 crore. The new order would be in addition to the previous order for 1, 239 trucks costing Rs 940 crore, The Economic Times reported. The combined order of about Rs 1,300 crore would be single largest military contract won by an Indian manufacturer. A 6X6 high mobility vehicle is needed for various purposes such as transporting the servicemen and materials and being platform for multi-barrel rocket launchers. The trucks are designed for extreme missions, including carry heavy weaponry load from the deserts of Rajasthan to icy terrains in Ladakh.”We are confident that the vehicles have more than met the requirements of the Indian Army. We are also in the process of increasing the indigenous content on the trucks, including the loading crane that will soon be made entirely in India,” Vernon Noronha, Vice President, Defence and Government Business, Tata Motors told the business daily.He also added that Tata has already exported the trucks to various other countries, including Israel and France, which are developing missiles for the Indian Army. Reportedly, the truck is expected to be a platform for future short surface-to-air missiles, multi-barrel rocket launchers and low-level quick reaction missiles.Tata Motors is the largest manufacturer in Indian automotive industry. The company on Monday announced that it had appointed Airbus COO Guenter Butschek as its Chief Executive officer and Managing Director for India Operations.last_img read more

When will we girls feel safe

first_imgAs I heard the horror story about the girl who was gang raped, I felt a stir in my soul. I felt angry and frustrated for all those girls who aspire to improve their lot in life without hiding behind a man. It is truly a heart-wrenching story that has sparked a revolution.From my experiences from across the globe, I have noticed that India is predominantly an orthodox society. Dress code for women is still a issue in India. The show of legs or cleavage by girls is considered provocative and even the advent of Facebook and the android phone has done little towards improving the image of women. Wearing shorts or tight tops is still frowned upon. It is a common sight to see a group of guys leering at a shapely girl wearing a pair of shorts and a tee. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’So why does this kind of behaviour happen?One of the reasons may be increased Westernisation which has helped this country to catch up with the rest of the world in many ways in less than 20 years. The mindset some sections of males might have not adjusted to this rapid evolution.In recent times, however, public places too have evolved. With the advent of the malls, things have become a bit better as they  act as ‘safe zones’ for modern women. Girls feel free to wear tight clothes and shop their favourite high street brand without the fear of being teased. However, once you exit, the streets outside are completely different story. With regard to the words ‘safe zone’, what got me introspecting was an explanation given to me by a friend who relocated to New Delhi from New York. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixIn her words ‘it is ok for a women to wear anything in Delhi provided she travels in her own car and goes to the right places’.  This sounded discriminatory. What about all the lakhs of women in Delhi who live alone and need to travel by public transport? Will they never enjoy the freedom my expat friend experiences? These pressing questions need to be answered soon. However, I choose not to be steeped in such pessimism. One thing that has become clear is the accommodating nature of the Indians. From a time when an onscreen kiss was considered taboo, India has come a long way. The entertainment industry today has become a frontrunner in upholding woman’s rights, at least to some extent. With the advent of reality television the general public has become more accepting towards the image of a more Westernised Indian woman. We have welcomed talent from across globe in film and TV. Even an international adult movie star has been accepted as mainstream heroine. This of course cannot be considered a landmark change, but it indicates the change in the mindset of the modern Indian male.But to what extent the image of the bold Indian woman on celluloid proves helpful to the common Indian girl is open to debate…..Salloli Kumar is a regular on the page 3 circuit for nearly a decade…last_img read more

the first time since the end of summer Whilst the freezing air will probably be obvious to everyone the snow will likely only be a big deal across the higher ground That said there could still be some tedious snow flurries across the south of England as well so you might not escape entirely if you live around there The snow is expected to materialise around Saturday evening and in places like Snowdonia and the Welsh Mountains it could be significantly more than the 05cm that Londoners might see Of course as it always does Scotland and the north of England will be in danger of catching the worst of the weather That could mean 4cm of snow rising to as much as 10cm if you live in the Scottish mountains Thatll not bother those hardy folks up there mind Theyve seen worse The snow could continue all weekend if were really unluckyCredit: PA Brian Glazer from The Weather Outlook said: "The cold conditions are expected to push southwards on Friday and in the north showers could begin turning to snow By Saturday all of the UK is likely to be under a cold northerly air stream "Showers are expected with most of them in coastal districts and the north where they could increasingly turn to snow "Over high ground in the north settling snow is possible and the Scottish mountains could see accumulations of 5cm to 10cm "The northerly air stream is looking quite unstable and it leads to the possibility of embedded disturbances in it bringing more organised bands of showers southwards "If that happens its not out of the question that in heavier bursts rain could turn to snow even in the southern half of the UK especially over high ground" He continued: "It would be very unusual to see snow so early in the season in the southern half of the UK but October 28th 2008 brought a covering of snow even to central London so it is not completely out of the question "Ironically this weekend marks the 10th anniversary of that event and computer models are predicting similar weather patterns "By Sunday high pressure may be pushing in from the west and that could lead to a widespread frost Temperatures in much of the UK could fall below freezing point and in the Scottish Glens values could dip below -5C (23F) "Cold weather probably continues early next week but there is a risk of it turning wet" Great lets hope it rains instead of snows Thats not much of a choice though
