Staffing the Pentagon with the same people who created today’s national security disaster and expecting them to fix it is a recipe for complete failure, but this is apparently where Gen. Mattis is heading.
The neo-con counter to Trump’s “Make America Great Again” seems to be shaping up to be “Make Russia Evil Again.” If President-elect Trump wants to drain the swamp in DC, and formulate a new national security policy focused on winning cyberwarfare battles and eradicating ISIS and militant Islam, he should start by draining Obama’s Pentagon.
Congressional hearings without honest testimony from those military officers called to testify are useless. In Obama’s politicized Pentagon, and the environment of political correctness and gender politics in which it operates, it will take men and women of real courage, who are prepared to tell the truth about the danger of admitting into our military individuals with gender identity disorder, and, like the Admirals who revolted in 1948 and 1949, put their careers on the line.
Washington’s allies generally are a pathetic lot. Benefiting from sizeable and capable populations and enjoying large and advanced economies, they nevertheless can’t be bothered to invest heavily in their own defense, so the bulk of Washington’s over-size military outlays are to project power for the benefit of its ne’er-do-well allies.
"Hundreds" of Islamic State fighters have been killed so far in U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, but killing those terrorists is "not the goal" of the U.S.-led campaign, said Rear Admiral John Kirby.
John Kerry told Congress that Obama wants expansive war powers to pursue Islamic State terrorists wherever & however O deems necessary, asking for a new authorization that would allow the Pentagon to commit American combat troops to fight.
If Obama’s policy of “containment” of the Islamic State prevails, then we have just witnessed the first battles in a long war that will last until a President with Ronald Reagan’s courage stands up and decides that we win and they lose.
It took sixty-nine years to build America into the world's only superpower; it has taken Obama less than six to flippantly throwaway America’s national influence and unilaterally disarm America through a conscious and treasonous hollowing-out of America’s military capability. Sign and share the petition to impeach Barack Obama.
The notion that creating a factory capable of reproducing itself and producing armed, autonomous drones and robots equals “scientific progress” reminds us all too much of the celebrations of the technical achievements involved in the NSA’s as yet uncharted ability to eavesdrop on virtually any form of communication.
Edward Snowden's leaks about NSA programs have put U.S. troops at risk and prompted terrorists to change their tactics, according to a Pentagon report. House Intelligence Comm.'s Mike Rogers (R-MI) and Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MI) said the report found that most documents were related to current U.S. military operations.
Military robots and drones are becoming “smarter” and more autonomous. Until the scientific and technical geniuses behind the idea of autonomous armed drones also equip them with a foolproof “Constitution chip” Americans should oppose the deployment of such technology.
The Pentagon on Sat. said it would call most of its 350,000 furloughed civilian workers back to their jobs, concluding that a recent law allows officials to consider them critical to protecting national security.
The Defense Department will be giving legally married same-sex couples the same federal benefits as heterosexual couples in response to SCOTUS' striking down DOMA.
An online charity that aids deployed troops was forced to close due to intimidation from U.S. military leadership.
There's a new report detailing the shocking anti-Christian hostility in the upper echelons of the Obama defense establishment. Fortunately, there's also a new coalition forming, Restore Military Religious Freedom, to fight for our military service members’ right to practice their personal faith.
Putting women in combat is the ultimate sell-out to the nonsensical political correctness of our age.
