Obama did everything humanly possible to destroy our country while in office. He weakened us on every front imaginable, as he made enemies out of our allies, and emboldened our enemies. One of his tactics to destroy America as the world’s number 1 superpower was to completely gut our military, as Obama successfully took us back to pre-World War II capabilities. While most of us were aware of Obama’s antics while he was in office, now we’re learning something even more horrifying that’s taking place, as Obama’s leftover officials at the White House are doing everything they can to destroy our military, with an alarming report coming out of Washington from one of President Trump’s top military Generals.
While the liberal media pushed the constant propaganda and rhetoric of what a great military leader Obama was, top brass on the ground had quite a different tale, as we would continuously hear horror stories of how brigades and battalions were completely non-mission ready, having assets and troops stripped away from them by Obama. As President Trump and our new Defense Secretary ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis are doing everything in their power to build us back up, The Vice Joint Chiefs of Staff just came forward with a startling warning about what Obama’s officials are secretly doing at the White House, that is putting every single American’s life at risk. The Daily Caller reported:
Holdovers from the Obama administration in the Pentagon are hampering efforts to fix the military’s major readiness problem, leaving Secretary of Defense James Mattis alone in his efforts to properly equip U.S. forces, according to the chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services.
“I am concerned that … to fix these problems [it] is going to take a lot more money, and yet a lot of the folks who are coming up with the budget to fix them are the same people who have been fighting every step of the way against our efforts to fix these problems,” said Chairman Mac Thornberry during a Capitol Hill press gaggle Thursday.
Thornberry noted that Mattis is “alone” in his attempts to alleviate the readiness problem at the Pentagon. He added that there are some people, including “political appointees and others from the Obama administration,” who have been “trying to deny there was a problem.”
As Thornberry’s dire warning is ringing alarm bells within the Trump Administration, his report also revealed other substantial problems. Only three of the Army’s 58 brigade combat teams are even ready for combat should something happen, and fewer that HALF of the Air Force’s aging aircraft fleet are ready to fight.
He went on to emphasize that Mattis alone cannot fix the problem by itself, and that Obama’s holdovers are preventing the Trump administration from being able to rebuild our military, as they’re doing everything in their power to yank their moral obligation away to support our troops and build up our military.
“I think it is wrong, immoral to ask men and women to go carry out a military mission for which they are not fully equipped, and fully trained, and fully supported,” said Thornberry. “And whether that is a counter-terrorism operation or a freedom of navigation operation in the south China sea, or whatever; if you ask somebody to go out there and risk their lives, you darn well better give them the best and fully support them.”
This is extremely alarming. President Trump needs to drain the swamp, and he needs to do it NOW. Thanks to Obama and his reckless anti-American agenda, we have more enemies in the world than ever before. At this point in history it is imperative that every single military asset that we have is 100% combat ready, should we wind up in another war.
