In short, the Carter defense budget rejects the most important premise about the character of the military threat facing the United States, adopting instead a military posture which reflects the hope that some early agreement can be found that would eliminate the need to improve the capability of U.S. forces to the point where they would offset the increments added to Soviet military power since the late 1960s. To date, there is no evidence thatt such a posture would be successful.
