Au contraire, it seems that many politicians and civilians have not understood Caesar's "Si vis pacem, para bellum".

You equip the military for your worst case scenario. If you cut back on the capabilites, cut back on your (inter)national ambitions.

But don't expect other countries to bail you out. They suffer the same dire economic situation, after all.
