I just watched the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff say on the Daily Show that the military was 40% smaller than it was in the Vietnam era. But our military budget has increased every year that I can remember. What gives?

Less humans more hardware. I remember liking Manuel de Landa: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_in_the_Age_of_Intelligent_Machines although in truth reading stuff like that years after college makes me drool a little bit.
