Robert Gates, the US Defence Secretary, faces a fierce political battle after announcing cuts in America's military spending of $100bn over the next five years, at the cost of thousands of outsourced civilian contracting jobs, and the elimination of an entire military command.

Set against the current defence budget of some $700bn a year, the reduction is less than breathtaking. But it is a step in the right direction.
