The fiscal year 2021 proposed budget may change yet again in order to focus on Russia and China. Originally, funding was requested for numerous modernization projects and advancements. U.S. Special Operations Command may have to cut back on some of these budgets however to turn towards greater power conflicts. Counterinsurgency and counterterrorism efforts are also on the chopping block as the idea of pulling troops out of Africa in order to prepare them for greater conflict has been discussed for months. SOCOM also commented that they will be looking more into how they can purchase weapons and equipment that are suitable for both causes.
