The latest event in the military with respect to the Obama administration is the dust up that has occurred as a result of the request the Marines have unisex covers (hats). This is of course small potatoes compared to the other things Obama has done to make sure our military is at it’s weakest in decades.
The Marines are upset over the cover issue and with good reason. This goes much further than a simple hat issue. Since Obama has dropped DADT, charges have been brought against Air Force members who have expressed support for traditional marriage. Obama has been busy making the military asexual, but has also been busy making it God-less. At the request (demand) of Mikey Weinstein, Pentagon hired Christian-hating atheist, the Air Force has been busy removing God from any corner of the Air Force. Now the Air Force may drop the phrase “So help me God” from it’s Honor Oath that has been in existence as long as the Air Force. What would the Honor be sworn to, if not a higher authority (higher than Obama)?
The Obama administration has also been busy purging generals from the military.
Nine senior commanding generals have been fired by the Obama administration this year, leading to speculation by active and retired members of the military that a purge of its commanders is underway.
Retired generals and current senior commanders that have spoken with TheBlaze say the administration is not only purging the military of commanders they don’t agree with, but is striking fear in the hearts of those still serving.
The timing comes as the five branches of the U.S. armed forces are reducing staff due to budget cuts, and as U.S. troops are expected to withdraw from Afghanistan next year.
“I think they’re using the opportunity of the shrinkage of the military to get rid of people that don’t agree with them or not tow the party line. Remember, as (former White House chief of staff) Rahm Emanuel said, never waste a crisis,” a senior retired general told TheBlaze on the condition of anonymity because he still provide services to the government and fears possible retribution.
“Even as a retired general, it’s still possible for the administration to make life miserable for us. If we’re working with the government or have contracts, they can just rip that out from under us,” he said.
Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, an outspoken critic of the Obama administration, said the White House fails to take action or investigate its own, but finds it easy to fire military commanders “who have given their lives for their country.”
“Obama will not purge a civilian or political appointee because they have bought into Obama’s ideology,” Vallely said. “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into fast and furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”
Three of the generals fired had either stated they could have helped out in Benghazi or had knowledge of the situation. Four of the generals were brought up on various charges, to which there is very little information about.
When a person reads about what is going on in the military today and then look at the fact the Obama administration’s only military spending was to send the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt F-16′s and money, makes a person wonder what Obama is really up to. Remember Hitler and Stalin purged their military’s to get complete obedience from their military’s.
