Gates: Obama Double-Crossed Me, Sent Message to World That America is ‘Retreating’ with Severe Defense Cuts

As House Armed Services and Intelligence Committee member, Rep. Michael Turner (R-OH) recently warned, the U.S. military budget has been “hollowed out” under the Obama Administration.

This has put the United States under grave threat from state and non-state actors that would be little more than a thorn in the side to a country with a robust military.  A recent report by The Heritage Foundation found that the United States is only marginally able to defend herself under current policies.

Fox News analyzes how the slimmed-down approach to military has fared under President Obama:

But how has this lighter footprint worked out? “Fox News Reporting Rising Threats – Shrinking Military examines how Obama’s policies have played out on the world stage:

  • Russia, where the administration made conciliatory gestures, after which Putin’s forces became more aggressive and took over Crimea.

  • Iraq, where Obama decided upon a precipitous withdrawal of U.S. military presence, after which the formerly pacified nation descended into chaos.

  • Syria, where Obama threatened but then failed to take action, after which the region continued to grow into one of the most dangerous spots in the world.

  • Libya, the one place where America did take action in a UN-approved military intervention, after which the nation split apart and become a breeding ground for terrorism.

It is obvious that using the military as a testing ground for social engineering and affirmative action is having an adverse effect on morale and capabilities.  And it is telling that three of the Secretaries of Defense under President Obama believe that current policies are weakening our country.
