With The current situation in Ukraine it is clear, and validates that the world as a whole does not respect America’s military power any longer thanks to Obama. Putin, a former KGB agent is well schooled in leadership, warfare, and politics. Obama is not. It shows too. Like a chess game Obama makes bad moves, and Putin, I regret to say, makes great moves. Obama stated “We will join with the international community” referring how to deal with Russia’s aggression. One can only take from that statement to mean America will not directly do anything unilaterally. Russia knew that its aggression would not be confronted by the USA. I say China knows this too, and Taiwan will one day be invaded as well. Iran knows this too, so Israel will not be able to count on the USA for any direct military support if the need arises. Before Netanyahu’s visit to the White House Obama stated “If Israel continues its settlement expansion and fails to provide a peace plan, I doubt we can defend them”.
The world has seen our president set “red lines” and once broken, he does nothing. They watch and realize they can do anything now. There will be no repercussions. Syria’s use of chemical weapons, Iran’s nuclear agenda, China taking over islands it never had before (A test run to take Taiwan back). North Korea, Pakistan, and more all now know Obama has decimated our military as well as the American people’s will to send troops anywhere. It is now open season for any country to do what it wishes.
Obama’s bowing to world leaders, his appeasement speech to Muslims in Cairo, his disdain for Israel, all point to a world leader who does not lead. Even in Libya to oust Gadhafi we were not the lead, but France was. The world took note of this. It made us look weak.
Benghazi also made us look weak. As we know it was not a video, the world knew it immediately, but our leaders tried to sell us the Brooklyn Bridge with their “It was about a video” ploy. Our enemies knew our administration was lying to its own people. Obama showed further weakness by saying those who killed Christopher Stevens will be held accountable, but never were (and most likely never will be). Another signal to the world, do what you want, we won’t do anything in return.
Yet, if our military remained strong instead of being decimated by this administration, many international aggressions may not have even of taken place. George Washington said “To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.” Ronald Reagan said “A truly successful army is one that, because of its strength and ability and dedication, will not be called upon to fight, for no one will dare to provoke it.” These great men knew that by keeping the military robust any foes would be less tempted to pursue aggression. However, the opposite holds true as well. A weak military and no one fears you.
So, what has President Obama done with our military?
When Obama entered his first term as president one of the first changes to our military was to have them fight with one arm behind their backs. The order to: not shoot first and only fire if fired upon. This is not a winning strategy. Bit by bit Obama has undermined our military by repealing “Don’t ask, don’t tell”. All bases were to open their arms (figuratively speaking) to homosexuals in our military. Today homosexuals in our military are having drag queen shows, events, and are fully protected by politically correct advisors stationed on each base. [see the latest military drag queen show here].
At the same time homosexuals were being flaunted by a public relations program within our military, Obama took aim at Christians in the military. No longer can a soldier openly talk about his faith be it Christian or Jewish. However, Muslims can. A chaplain writing the words used by President Eisenhower “There are no atheists in fox holes” was punished for those words. Obama has also replaced Christian chaplains with non-secular chaplains. Anything Christian need be removed. Calling a Christmas tree by the term Christmas tree is not allowed, no event can be called a Christmas event such as a charity Christmas football game. The politically correct advisers step in and say no. It must be called a holiday event (actual event that happened).
Bibles, crosses, at bases and even Walter Reed Hospital were ordered to be removed. The public outcry for this ruling made the order reversed (for now). Yet it is clear religion must be removed from serving in our military.
His purging 197 top brass in our military is slowly being revealed to have a dual purpose. The first being if Obama wanted to confiscate guns in the USA he might run into problems doing so, and the top brass at the time would not carry out his orders as much of them were conservative. Obama yes men would have no problem carry out his orders, which may mean deaths. The other maybe he feared a coup, as some generals alluded to this after their removal. A need to replace them with his own, and I call them, Yes men, would negate that threat as he continues to rule via abusing his authority and power ignoring the Constitution.
Destroying our troop’s moral is another ploy this administration is doing. Cutting their pay, and benefits all in a ruse to balance a budget that is so far gone it cannot be balanced. Redesigning military caps to mimic women’s caps, cutting troops to levels unseen since World War II. The world sees this and no longer fears us. They see an America in decline.
Then there is the Seal Team 6 that operates on anonymity. They were the ones that killed Osama Bin Laden. Our Vice President spoke their names and divisions publicly. Uncle Joe was given those names to read. He did not know them off the top of his head. Surely protocol states that these names were to remain unkown.
After this revealing event the Seal Team 6 members knew their lives were in jeopardy. They told their families to be careful. They made out their wills. They showed their anger toward the administration for leaking their names.
On August 6 2011 their Chinook military helicopter called Extortion 17 was shot down in Afghanistan, and is ranked as the worst loss of life in one attack in our Afghanistan war. Documents revealed show that the Taliban knew where the helicopter would be in advance. They all died in that helicopter crash. All 38 on board were killed, 25 of them from Seal Team 6. It smacks of a purposeful leak to allow retaliation. If the Vice President put his foot in his mouth yet again by innocently naming these men, one could say it was just “Uncle Joe” being himself. However, former CIA director Leon Penetta surely would have known protocol of keeping these names secret. Yet, he revealed their names for a movie project [Read about it here]. Yet he did the same thing too!
Take into consideration their memorial service. Our military sent a Muslim Cleric that read the prayers in Arabic. The prayers he recited condemned the soldiers to hell for their actions [Read the prayer here]. This is a bigger scandal then Benghazi, yet so few people know about it thanks to the liberal media. [Read about it here].
The international community knows and watches everything our President does and says. With each chipping away at our own military, failed economic policies, a crumbling of our countries ethics and morals, our out of control spending and deficit, our slide to Socialism (to which other countries sees, but are amazed our own people don’t), to all the President does that lessens America day by day, they see it all. They know it is just a waiting game until one day America will be no longer the shiny city on the hill. It will be one, big huge Detroit.
God Bless our military, our servicemen and women in harm’s way, and on all bases wherever they may be. It was the soldier that gave us Freedom of Speech, not a politician.
