A Military in Liberal Hands October 30, 2015Posted by geoff in News.
President Obama, addressing the UN General Assembly (9/28/2015):
I lead the strongest military that the world has ever known.
The Heritage Foundation 2016 Index of Military Strength (10/28/2015):
All four branches of the military face severe readiness, capability, or capacity challenges. Three of the services were rated as “marginal” in their ability to contribute adequate combat power. The Army fared worse, earning a “weak” rating overall. Both Army and Marine Corps earned poor “capacity” scores, meeting only 64 percent of their manpower needs. The Navy and Air Force were rated as “marginal” due primarily to inadequate modernization and equipment replacement programs.
Hmmmmmm . . . either things went south in one short month, or the president is clueless about all matters military. Which could it be, I wonder?
