Shameful: Here’s What Obama Did While in Office That Put Our Military at Risk

A lot of things that Obama did wrong are getting exposed lately.

Recently a Marine veteran and defense policy expert threw former President Barack Obama under the bus.

They accused Obama of cutting military funds that could send the army into a “death spiral” if his decision is not reversed anytime soon.

In an article published by a naval blog this week, a Heritage Foundation senior research fellow for defense programs claimed that the war crisis began earlier right after the Budget Control Act of 2011 which allegedly “was intended to incentivize the parties to reduce federal budget growth by legislating mandatory cuts so painful — to the country’s security, in particular — that the parties would find some compromise in their positions that would allow them to avoid such harsh consequences.”

After Obama’s government “pulled the trigger” the problems just kept piling up. Dakota Wood, who worked with the Marine Corps for full two decades came out with the following statement:“Unable to pay for the large force needed to sustain operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and a variety of commitments around the world, the military shrank in size but saw a little reduction in its workload.” Dakota added:

“In fact, it started consuming itself, deferring maintenance and modernization to pay for current readiness and the immediate expenses of fuel, ammunition, and replacement of equipment lost in combat operations. As fewer people, units, and equipment prematurely aged, the delayed arrival of replacement items worsened the material condition of the force, exacerbated further by the lack of funding for repair parts and maintenance personnel.”

The statistics just keep getting worse according to Dakota:

“The U.S. Air Force is 24 percent short of the fighters it needs.” Wood added: “It is also short 1,000 pilots and over 3,000 maintainers. Only four of its 32 combat-coded squadrons are ready to execute all wartime missions. Prior to 1991, the Air Force purchased more than 500 aircraft a year to offset platforms aging out of its inventory. Since then it has averaged fewer than 100 per year, and the operational tempo has only gotten worse.”

In the meantime, top dog states like China, Russia, and North Korea just keep getting better. A large portion of their funds is dedicated to making the military so much better than it is. Thanks to Obama’s fund cuts we are in a tough spot and in great danger of getting pummeled by our enemies.

Do you think Obama failed big time during his presidency? Tell us down below!

    Obama is a clever enemy of the USA. Like Rev. Wright. He hates America. Only mentally deficient liberals could possibly want this enemy of the people in office, again. I am more than willing to vote for California establisng itself as a Country and having Obama as President or King.
