Downsizing has occurred on many occasions and the issue was and is when the balloon goes up and large numbers of military are required. Our citizens come to the aid of our country and get slaughtered until the come up to speed being a true warrior. "We fight the war with what we have", remember that?
No, it will not cause us to fall. It may effect our ability to have the global reach we have now but not our ability to defend our homeland. Short of nuclear weapon usage, which could happen without the downsizing, someone would still have to take us on in defense of our homes.. and I don't think anyone likes their chances. If America falls, based on my limited knowledge, it will be nuclear or economical.
