Has there ever been an administration that has had more disdain for the U.S. military than the Obama administration? The way that this administration treats our veterans and the way that this administration is gutting our armed forces is absolutely shameful. As you will read about below, Obama and his minions have been purging the military of officers that do not agree with their agenda, they have labeled veterans returning from overseas wars as “potential terrorists”, and they have turned our military into a playground for political correctness and social experiments. Not that Obama has been afraid to use the military. In fact, he has sent troops more places than just about any other president in U.S. history. He is running our brave men and women into the ground at the same time that he is relentlessly reducing the size of the Army, Navy and Air Force. As a result, our armed forces are smaller, weaker, more spread out and less prepared for a major war than at any other time in recent memory. Please share this article with as many people as you can. The American people deserve to know the truth. The following are 18 signs that the Obama administration is openly hostile to the military…
#1 A new VA training guide compares our precious military veterans to Oscar the Grouch.
#2 Military veterans have been repeatedly labeled as “potential terrorists” in official government documents during the Obama years.
#3 According to a new report put out by the office of U.S. Senator Tom Coburn, the negligence of the VA while the Obama administration has been in charge may have resulted in the deaths of more than 1,000 veterans.
#4 Things have gotten so bad since Obama took over that some veterans have had to wait more than a year just to get an appointment with a doctor at a VA hospital.
#5 At one point during Obama’s reign, it was taking more than half a year for the average claim for veteran benefits to be processed, and the Department of Veterans Affairs had a backlog of more than half a million overdue claims for benefits that were at least 125 days old.
#6 Thanks to budget cuts that the Obama administration gleefully pushed for, a lot of really good career officers are being forced out of the military. For example, earlier this month it was reported that more than 500 Army majors and more than 1,100 Army captains were getting “pink slips” due to these budget cuts.
#7 Since Obama entered the White House, dozens of very high ranking officers such as generals and admirals have been “purged” from the ranks of the military. In a previous article, I included a very long list of the names of some of these officers. A significant number of them were known to disagree with the Obama administration on matters of military policy.
#8 During Obama’s second term, the size of the U.S. Army is being reduced by a total of 60,000 soldiers.
#9 The size of the U.S. Air Force is going to be reduced by 500 planes over the next five years.
#10 According to retired Army Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis, the U.S. Air Force once had more than twice as many squadrons as it does today…
“Our tanker aircraft are on average 47 years old and our strategic bombers 34 years old, and besides, their numbers are totally insufficient for America’s global missions. For example, our air force shrank from 82 fighter squadrons at the end of the Cold War to 39 today and our Navy is in worse shape.”
#11 Thanks in part of Obama, the U.S. Navy is already the smallest that it has been since World War I.
#12 Barack Obama has repeatedly used the military as a tool to advance the cause of political correctness.
