Pentagon to Lift Rule Excluding Women From Combat
Shock how General is treated

Military Leaders Warn Congress of 'Hollow' Force - No one is listening (Its already hallow & you dont even know it)

Pentagon-600-ts300

Furthermore, the "jumping ship" from the military has already began as early as last December (mass exit). I know several dozen Marines in all ranks (Pvt - BGen) that are packing it in because of the current administration and the direction it is going. Many, many of those (and I'm talking in the hundreds) are combat hardened warriors that served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. YOUR Marine Corps is already changing at a cyclic speed and the American people don't even know it.

Wait until Feb when the Marine Corps lays of 200,00 then more in March and even more in the following months as we have already been instructed. The cuts to America's military is going to be massive and will continue throughout 2013-14. One might ask, what kind of Marines will be in the Marine Corps if that majority of combat hardened warriors are getting out? What will the unemployment numbers in America look like after 20,000 Marines in Feb, March, April hit the streets looking for a job?

Time for a C-Gar

 

 

WASHINGTON - The nation's top military leaders warned Congress in unusually stark terms that its failure to pass a 2013 defense budget - coupled with the threat of automatic budget cuts - has pushed the Pentagon to the brink of a crisis.

They wrote in a joint letter to congressional leaders that the readiness of U.S. armed forces is at a "tipping point."

A copy of the letter was provided Wednesday to The Associated Press.

The military leaders said that troops in combat and those who are being treated for wounds will get the funds needed. But the rest of the force will be severely compromised if the Pentagon has to continue operating on last year's budget.

"We are on the brink of creating a hollow force," said the letter signed by the chiefs of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and National Guard, as well as the chairman and vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The Pentagon is facing two major money problems. First is the threat of drastic additional budget cuts if Congress and the Obama administration are unable to agree on debt-reduction measures by March. The second is Congress' failure thus far to pass a 2013 budget; that has left the Pentagon on a spending path based on its previous budget.

In their letter the military leaders said the main risk is that budget conditions will create such a wide disconnect between their spending needs and the available funds that the armed forces will be ill prepared for future combat.

"Should this looming readiness crisis be left unaddressed, we will have to ground aircraft, return ships to port, and stop driving combat vehicles in training," they wrote, adding that training would have to be reducing by almost half of what was planning just three months ago.

"To avert this crisis we urge you to take immediate action to provide adequate and stable funding for readiness," they wrote.

"Under current budgetary uncertainty, we are at grave risk of an imposed mismatch between the size of our nation's military force and the funding required to maintain its readiness, which will inevitably lead to a hollow force."

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has been making similar arguments. Last Thursday he told a Pentagon news conference that the threat of drastic spending cuts triggered by failure to reach a debt-reduction deal by March, coupled with Congress' failure to pass a 2013 defense budget, is creating "a perfect storm of budget uncertainty."

"We have no idea what the hell's going to happen," he said. "All told, this uncertainty, if left unresolved by the Congress, will seriously harm our military readiness."

In a statement responding to the Joint Chiefs' letter, Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, said Wednesday that it should serve as a "wake-up call" to Congress and the White House.

"The condition of our armed forces is swiftly declining. And this is the first red flag on what could be a hazardous road for our national security," said McKeon, R-Calif.

It's all part of the plan Major...we assume it is not well thought through,but it is...Read rules for Radicals, Clowerd-Piven, go to David Horowitz's website...fill those slots with useful idiots (communist term) who have no regard or understanding of the Constitution or training in integrity, honor, semper fi etc, remove all the old guard generals and commissioned officers with tools and you now have a citizen army capable of turning on their own countrymen. It sounds all conspiracy crazy, but it is in black and white spelled out in this administration and friends playbook.

Maj. Pain,

I believe that Lenin killed his Russian Military officer
corp when he took over to quell any disent from them.
He, and his henchman, murdered thousands of officers
in the early years after the revolution.
No murders of officers today but not reelisting them,
and many enlisted men, smells like the same results
are desired as in soviet Russia long ago.
They destroy the leaders and the ranks will follow them.

This administration is looking for one thing (total dominance) as a world leader. Him, not America and they only way he can do that is to bring America to its knees. He's doing it. There are those that let the cat out of the bag. http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2013/01/24/Kerry-I-Will-Implement-President-Obamas-Vision-For-The-World

No surprise to me. Oblammy is following the Leninist
playbook to the letter.
His effort to suspend the 2nd amendment and gutting our
fine military personnel will make it easy for him to remain
in power 4ever and destroy the nation he was schooled to
despise so much.
The one big difference is that Lenin & Stalin murdered
thousands of their military officer corp.

Yes, all of the good officers in the military (that will push back)for what is right are being sent away and the puppets are being left. Sums it up.

I think some kind of strict action must be taken against such leaders. We must be thinking about our country's future. For that a specific change is necessary.
