The American Empire’s War Machine Is Running out of Steam

Recommended Posts

“Years of complex operations and the ongoing demands of units in the field have left the armed forces struggling to maintain both operational capacity and high levels of readiness, according to a recent report from the Government Accountability Office.”

That’s the opening paragraph of an article published by Business Insider last week. The piece, titled “The US military is struggling to keep up with all its responsibilities,” could just as easily been titled “The American Empire is overextended,” as it thoroughly details the GAO’s negative assessment of the current state of the U.S. war machine.

Writing that “unrelenting demands from geographic commanders for particular types of forces are disrupting manning, training, and equipping cycles,” the report breaks down how each branch of the military is essentially overburdened and underprepared to fulfill its national security obligations.

The Air Force, for instance, has reported that less than 50 percent of its forces are at acceptable readiness levels. Additionally, the branch says, it’s short of 1,500 pilots and 3,400 maintenance crew members.

I'm starting to notice a specific slant to the news today, "America is ill prepared for war" why is that the narrative?

It was decimated by Obozo. He fired nearly every General and Admiral and many many other higher ups during his 8 years, most of them in the first few years.

He got rid of anyone who posed a threat to Marxism.

Empires do what they do, rise and fall. Empire and American are opposite concepts, nothing good happened when they were combined.

Because the elites want us to fail as a nation so; no army, navy, marines, air force, no patriots not even a girl scout to defend the American home land would be their dream come true  ....

WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. ~ Smedley Darlington Butler
