Obama to unveil leaner U.S. military strategy

• The
  President Barack Obama will visit the Pentagon on Thursday to unveil a revised US military strategy designed to reflect a more frugal era and a greater focus on potential threats from China, officials said.

The Pentagon’s “defense strategic review” is supposed to set out an approach for the US military at a time of fiscal pressures, as the Obama administration prepares for more than $450 billion in defense cuts over the next 10 years.

The review “will guide our budget priorities and decisions going forward,” the White House said in a statement Wednesday.
