WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama unveiled a new strategy for the US military on Thursday that will scale back the size of its ground forces while shifting emphasis to the Asia-Pacific region, where China's military advances have stoked concern.

"Our nation is at a moment of transition," Obama wrote in the introduction to the Pentagon strategy document presented by Obama. The Pentagon promised increased investment in cyber capabilities while suggesting that America's nuclear arsenal may be able to shrink without jeopardizing security.

"While the US military will continue to contribute to security globally, we will of necessity rebalance toward the Asia-Pacific region," the strategy document read.
