Hate to say I told you so but President Obamas disinterest in enhancing our combat capability in favor of social egalitarianism and a warped sense of social justice is indeed having an impact on war readiness.
According to the Washington Times, A Navy F-18 fighter pilot and former Top Gun instructor is publicly warning admirals that retention is beginning to suffer from the militarys relentless social conditioning programs. Cmdr. Guy Snodgrass said sailors are becoming fed-up with the constant emphasis on social issues an apparent reference to gays in the military, women in combat and ending sexual harassment.

Who would want to serve with Bammy as CiC?
I don’t like what is apparently the Navy’s new slogan: “A Global Force For Good.” The Navy, as with all of the other military services, ought to be a global force for the defense of the United States of America,not social workers to the world.
If they can’t use the military against the citizens of this country, they want to destroy it.
I know of two career Msgts and a bunch of other enlisted that left for the social issue reason alone.
Queers and Muslims.
Add Dykes and I think you’ve got it. My bad for old skool thinking.
That’s OK. The draft will fix the problem. Either that or the military shrinks into irrelevance. Either way, the Dems win.
“Who would want to serve with Bammy as CiC”
I entered the military voluntarily under LBJ, which is in it self very questionable. I would never consider it under the messiah!
A friend of mine said just the other day that he feels pretty lucky that he served primarily under Reagan. He says they were put on alert a couple of times but there were no big deployments while Reagan was in the White House.
He did end up in Riyadh for a few months when Bush Sr took over but no nation building games.
Pissing off the most aggressive warriors so you can keep the pantywaists happy. D- on Strategery there, Won.
If this particular species of greed doesn't show up soon (assuming it still exists), we're all in a heap of trouble.
Liberalism is going to drive a lot of people away from traditional (& vital) institutions.
A friend of mine, who is thankfully retiring from her public school job in Los Angeles, said she has to teach her second-grade class about same-sex marriage. I told her I predict that the only places of employment for anyone socially conservative will be religiously affiliated — as long as they are not state or federally funded.
Were you in Cambodia with John Kerry back in 1968, at Christmastime? You know, while he was gettin' shot at by the Khmer Rouge and the ARVN, the President of the United States was telling the American People that he wasn't there, that it wasn't happening.
If you had been there, the whole nasty business would be seared into your memory, my friend. Let me tell you.
Nope, never met Kerry but did get to see lovely Vietnam in 1972.
We have no military worthy of being called American fighting forces thanks to the Islamic puppet in the White House.
We do, but they probably feel as if they are under Reno and Benteen right now.
The asinine political-correctness, gay and transgender BS isn't the worst. Obama's ROE in Afghanistan are killing hundreds of Americans. something like 70-75% of all Afghanistan fatalities in Afghanistan have occurred under Obama.
It would be enough to make you throw your medals over the White House fence--or someone else's. ;)
And in a manner reminiscent of Jehengisssgz Kahn too!
that’s some serieZ seering!
