Politics can get dirty, we all know that, but a line is crossed when politics put the lives of our military at stake.
It was recently discovered that Obama’s appointees in the Pentagon are blocking General Mattis from giving our military men and women the help they desperately need to fight in combat and stay alive.
“Holdovers from the Obama administration in the Pentagon are hampering efforts to fix the military’s major readiness problem, leaving Secretary of Defense James Mattis alone in his efforts to properly equip U.S. forces, according to the chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services.”
Do these people have no shame? Preventing our Secretary of Defense from rebuilding our Military doesn’t just put our troops in danger, it puts ALL American lives in danger!
Military readiness is VITAL because declines in our ability to be on guard for an attack signals to the rest of the world that the United States is not prepared to defend itself. Hostile nations will be more likely to lash out against America, inevitably leading us into war.
Chairman of the House committee of Armed services, Mac Thornberry, said that Mattis can’t do this alone and the U.S. has a moral obligation to support the troops.
“I think it is wrong, immoral to ask men and women to go carry out a military mission for which they are not fully equipped, and fully trained, and fully supported,” said Thornberry.
And whether that is a counter-terrorism operation or a freedom of navigation operation in the south China sea, or whatever; if you ask somebody to go out there and risk their lives, you darn well better give them the best and fully support them.”
President Trump takes the well-being of our Military service members VERY seriously. Democrats acting childish and blocking all his cabinet picks is one thing, but putting American lives in danger is a whole different story.
These Obama appointees should be thrown in jail for what they are doing. Our Military deserves better than this!
