    from the 16 million USD... means, 11 million USD for the defense budget... ------------------------------------------ (1) 30 % cut salaries (2) 30 % soldiers less, due to giving up occupation (3) 30 % less reserve soldiers (4) 30 % less civil personal (5) 30 % consumption less (means, less food, less teargas cannisters etc) (6) closing 10 % of the bases (7) having planes on call, just some for trianing and your occassional nuiscance over lebanon etc ...i think, this would be more than a 30 % cut already ?
