At a time when there is fear that all-out war may break out in Ukraine, President Obama is taking action to disarm the US Navy. Please review this article by Adam Kredo on the canceling of the US Navy Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs. Not only is Obama reducing the US Navy to less than 200 ships from President Reagan’s 600 ship fleet, but Obama is also effectively telling the Chinese, Russian, and Iranian Navies that we are raising the white flag, and they will be able to attack US Navy more easily after he leaves office. The Navy’s tomahawk stock will be completely depleted by 2018, with no replacements missiles to come online for 10 years.
By his actions, Obama is minimizing the defense of US Navy ships at sea from shore based missiles and enemy fleets. He is putting the lives of all Naval personnel at sea and the entire fleet in extreme danger.
This certainly should be viewed as a plan make the US Navy a second rate Navy, as his plans to degrade the US Army to a level below WWII strength, and reduce the US Air Force in numbers of combat aircraft that would be inadequate to protect the Republic; the plans to execute those reductions are already well underway by Obama’s civilian appointees at DOD, and being driven by the pretender in the Oval Office. Obama has worked diligently for 5 years to negatively affect the unit cohesiveness, personnel moral, religious freedom, and the “Combat Effectiveness” of the US Armed Forces.
The ineffective Republic leadership in the House that controls the purse strings has done very little to combat it for the last 3 years, but they did vote to reduce the retirement pay of military personnel until we protested—forcing them to cease and desist.
The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs-of-Staff, General Dempsey, who helped Obama cover up the fact that US military rescue forces were prevented from saving the lives of the Americans in The Battle of Benghazi. He and Admiral Mullen covered up the fact that Obama refused to authorize “Cross Border Authority” which is required before the Pentagon can deploy a rescue force. Multiple rescue forces were ready and waiting on the tarmac 450 miles away ready to fly the 90 minutes to reach Benghazi during the commando style attack by 125-150 Al Q’ieda terrorists on the US Mission in The Battle of Benghazi, and we continue to watch while the CIA, the State Department, the National Security Council, the Joint Chiefs–of-Staff, and left of Center liberal media establishment are all complicit in the cover up.
Every Navy Veteran and every US Naval Academy graduate should contact their Congressional Representative, their US Senators, and the media in their states to demand Obama be stopped dead in his tracks from effectively destroying the US Navy at a time when Russia is going to war in the Ukraine.
Every day another shoe drops, and the “feckless and inept ” Republican leadership in the House of Representatives and the “anti-American and leftist” Democratic leadership in the US Senate do not act to prevent the continued destruction of the US Armed Forces by Obama.
Unless the leadership groups in both Houses of Congress act to prevent Obama from destroying the US Navy, “ALL” those Congressman and Senators in leadership of both houses who are perpetuating this and are standing for re-election in November must be defeated at the polls.
