At the end of January, two documents were released by the Pentagon: "Defense Budget Priorities and Choices" and "Sustaining U.S. Global Leadership: Priorities for the 21st Century Defense."

With an epicenter at the Pentagon, these documents have created rumblings that reach from the Senate Armed Forces Committee all the way to the Ministry of National Defense in China.
