US Military - put it in park


Along with the 20,000 Marines exiting the Marine Corps this February and more in March and more in April, along with all of the other branches that are being streamlined, you US Military is being reduced to new low numbers.. However, the responsibilities haven’t decreased. In lines with this the US Navy is feeling some pain as is the Marine Corps. Time for a C-Gar

"Ive captured a terrorist here at my medal scanner - did a TSA agent ever say"

The quote above is what the US is supporting. Home land security is purchasing millions, let me say it again, millions of bullets of ammunition and our government is strangeling our military. Not only the Marine Corps and Navy above but our US Army is all but done.


Does any of this typoe of serous defense budget cuts make sense while we are at war? Does anyone one but those that go forward even remember we are at war? If the answer is yes, why are they taking all of our resources away like we arnt at war?  Less resources = more KIA. Well guess it doesnt matter, they dont have any kids overthere right?

SS Truman, USS Gettysburg Deployment Delayed

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, Feb. 6, 2013 - The deployment of the U.S. Navy's aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman and the guided-missile cruiser USS Gettysburg to the U.S. Central Command area of operations has been delayed, according to a statement issued today by Pentagon Press Secretary George Little.

The Secretary of Defense has delayed the deployment of the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75) and the USS Gettysburg (CG-64), which were scheduled to depart later this week for the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) Area of Responsibility, Little said in his statement.

The USS Harry S. Truman is home-based at Norfolk, Va., and the USS Gettysburg is home-based at Mayport, Fla. 

Little's statement continues as follows:

"Facing budget uncertainty -- including a Continuing Resolution and the looming potential for across-the-board sequestration cuts -- the U.S. Navy made this request to the Secretary and he approved. This prudent decision enables the U.S. Navy to maintain these ships to deploy on short notice in the event they are needed to respond to national security contingencies.

"The United States will continue to maintain a robust military presence in the CENTCOM region, including the current carrier presence and a mix of other assets, to fulfill enduring commitments to our partners. The U.S. military continues to stand ready to respond to any contingency and to confront any threat in the region."
