Pentagon Official: The Facts Are In, And Obama’s Policy Is A Direct Danger To The United States
Daily Caller ^ | 10:42 PM 08/01/2014 | Joseph Miller

Posted on 08/01/2014 10:16:54 PM PDT by Olog-hai

The report is in, and the review of the president’s foreign policy is clear: If there is not an immediate course-reversal, the United States is in serious danger.

In 2013, the United States Institute for Peace, “a congressionally-created, independent, nonpartisan institution whose mission is to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflicts around the world,” was asked to assist the National Defense Panel with reviewing the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR). The National Defense Panel is a congressional-mandated bipartisan commission that’s co-chairs were appointed by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.

On July 31, the National Defense Panel released its long-awaited report on the effects of the QDR and delivered its findings to Congress. The panel pulled no punches—its findings were a scathing indictment of Obama’s foreign policy, national security policy, and defense policy. The panel found that president Barack Obama’s QDR, military force reductions, and trillion-dollar defense budget cuts are dangerous—and will leave the country in a position where it is unable to respond to threats to our nation’s security. This, the panel concluded, must be reversed as soon as possible. …

If the Commander in Chief is incompetent and actually adheres to policies that are contrary to the well being and very notion of an American nation, it matters little what resources he has. For instance if you have the most efficient, dedicated and fully resourced border patrol, but you order them not to engage or pull back, they will be ineffective in sealing or defining a border.

I know there are tons of good people in highly populated areas. I also know FR servers (are still STUPIDLY) hosted in the Sacramento area.
Sorry folks. I can live without FR and YOU that live in those areas who are doing so at your own risk. Get away from population centers; make yourself less of a target. Liberals are stupid and will allow threat into their area’s so they can feel better about themselves over an idea vice logic of assholes who just want to kill people who aint muzzzie.

BTW; I don’t want to hear about FR’s failed decisions to stay on bare metal or co-lo contracts.

With O in charge now would be the perfect time for our enemies to stage a massive attack.

Obama has degraded everything so much we probably would have a tough time dealing with a couple cities nuked and biological weapons dispersed everywhere.

Never did to me. Just the trial in the Senate part; the present version is very unlikely to convict.

It would be, well, interesting if “haters” attacked the FR servers. What kind of backups are kept, and where? This isn’t our fathers’ California.

It’s a fair assertion given the history of the socialist left. If the Black Book of Communism counted up to 100 million victims back in 1997, how many more must fall prey to the left’s bloodlust?

“a congressionally-created, independent, nonpartisan institution whose mission is to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflicts around the world,”

This, unfortunately, is deemed an appropriate mission statement for an organization advising on our military.

Why give the military more budget for this?

What the military needs to help it is: “An organization that advises on the various methods to attack and kill adversaries anywhere in the world that directly threaten US interests or those of our allies”

If the military’s mission is now to “prevent, mitigate and resolve conflicts” I’m pretty sure they don’t mean blowing stuff up and killing people, which is the reason why we need a military.

I would take a WAG, and say maybe 10 to 30 million, but it is also their kind of thinking, that has killed 40 or 50 million babies too.

CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER...

Obama swore on the Koran? or was it the Bible that he would serve to “...preserve,protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”.

What has he done?

ONLY WEAKENED America from within and endangered her from outside.

He is the worst US President in history, something I could have told you in 2008...

On the other hand, if there are no resources, even a competent "replacement" is behind the eight ball....

Yes, like this is supposed to surprise us. I am not some sort of conspiracy nut, but I think there is some subtle programming going on. Little by little, the government is preparing people to accept the government firing on Americans in General, white Americans in particular. 2nd, I hope you get your VA settlement soon.

To kill conservatives, I am sure. There I said it. If they thought they could get away with it, they would kill all of us.
Already planned by 0's "pal" Ayers' group:

FBI Informant Reveals Weather Underground Advocated "Killing 25 Million Americans."

    I asked, "well what is going to happen to those people we can't
    reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?" and the reply was that
    they'd have to be eliminated.

    And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to
    eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.

    And when I say "eliminate," I mean "kill."

    Twenty-five million people.

    I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which
    have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational
    centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination
    of 25 million people.

    And they were dead serious.

That’s 25,000,000 eliminated AFTER they get people into the reeducation centers.

It’s how they intend to get the people into the reeducation centers and the millions killed getting them there that people often overlook.
