Obama did a lot of things that can and will be debated in terms of if they were a boon or a bust for the U.S. For instance, a small percentage of Americans were helped by the Affordable Care Act while the vast majority had their health insurance utterly destroyed. One fact that can not be debated, however, is that he allowed our military to weaken terribly under his reign.
The Washington Times has confirmed that “U.S. military forces are poorly structured to meet the threats posed by China, Russia, and other states.” This even means that we are ill-equipped to deal with radical Islam and war against groups like ISIS, too. The study is exposing this is called “U.S. Military Capabilities and Forces for a Dangerous World” and the findings therein are chilling.
“Put more starkly, assessments in this report will show that U.S. forces could, under plausible assumptions, lose the next war they are called upon to fight, despite the United States outspending China on military forces by a ratio of 2.7 to 1 and Russia by 6 to 1,” the report declares. This shows that Obama was great at spending money, he simply spent it poorly, as most liberals do.
“The nation needs to do better than this,” the report adds.
As for the military edge that the United States has always enjoyed, Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, admitted, “I also will tell you that in the last 10 or 15 years, that competitive advantage has eroded, and it’s no longer as decisive as it was some years ago.”
The Rand Corporation also found that the U.S. should focus on the threats posed by “China, Russia, North Korea, Iran and Islamic terrorist groups” while not “readying military forces to fight two regional wars in overlapping time frames.”
Both Cuba and Venezuela pose problems for the U.S., as well. Still, the same weapons needed to defeat Russia (should war break out) are the same weapons used to beat China. Therefore, the best use of Ameican war dollars goes to weapons that serve more than one purpose if needed.
These are all things that Obama should have been concerned about while he was busy making sure that White House was rainbow colored when Jimmy married Joe, so to speak.
Thankfully, America has a real leader now in President Donald Trump. He wants to make America so powerful that no one would ever dare attack us.
The only sad part of this fact is the very same people who allowed Obama to weaken the U.S. are the same people who are now trying to impeach or otherwise remove Trump from office on fake charges regarding Russia.
For the good of us all, this must not b allowed to happen.
