Army plans to cut 40,000 troops

Tom Vanden Brook, USA TODAY 4:20 p.m. EDT July 7, 2015


Read the rest of the article in the link above.


The Army plans to cut 40,000 soldiers from its ranks over the next two years, a reduction that will affect all its domestic and foreign posts, USA TODAY learned Tuesday.

An additional 17,000 Army civilian employees would also be laid off under the plan officials intend to announce this week.

Under the plan, the Army would have 450,000 soldiers by the end of the 2017 budget year. The reduction in troops and civilians is due to budget constraints, the Army asserts in a document obtained by USA TODAY.

Some of the cuts were expected. During the peak of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army swelled to about 570,000 soldiers to ensure that deployments could be limited to one year. After most troops came home from those wars, the Army planned to shrink.

Maybe if the Pentagon could keep track of the money we give them, there would be enough to go around.

Obama already fired a bunch of top level military officers.

Obama Changes Direction Of US Military Command, Fires 9th General In His Purge

Nine top-level generals and commanders could definitely be considered a purge of sorts. Perhaps Obama is thinking about some options that the majority of Americans would be loathe to even consider? Several Pentagon Officials have been trying to warn the people to expect radical changes very soon. The Chinese are also thinking about getting out of the dollar and forming their own currency alliance. There is even the strong potential for 16 US States being shut down and handed over to the federal government due to such high levels of debt. Could martial law be coming?

There have also been reports that seem to indicate Obama has a litmus test for military officers these days. Apparently, he only wants officers who do not have trouble firing on US citizens. Several of these now retired officers have come forward and said that they think Obama is preparing for war against the US. We have also heard Obama himself talk about ‘My Military.’ Whatever you think might be happening, it is certainly clear that Obama is looking to change and move things in a different direction.

Full List: 197 Officers Removed from Obama’s Military During the Purge
When we brought you the 9 Military Commanders it was apparent that President Obama was purging the military top brass. When two days later two more were fired, many reporters started trying to get to the bottom of what President Obama was doing with what he called “my military”. Now what was a noticeable purge of commanders is now topped 197 since 2009!
While the top listed reason is sex, there seems to be several questionable reasons why these guys are being fired. From dereliction of duty to not saluting properly. The list continues to grow

Perhaps he's going to replace them with his own civilian army or he just wants us left defenseless. I think both.

Obama is a straight up, Manchurian Candidate....

I can't wait till Folks start placing Open Charges of treason on him, and those below him.

Right? He has to go down, Holder and Hillary too. :fbmnoqmo:
