Recently, the Washington Times reported that President Obama has so completely castrated our military, that the United States is only marginally able to defend itself. Now, retired Air Force General Tom McInerney tells the Daily Caller that because of President Obama's policies, Vladimir Putin and others have no respect for the U.S. — and are showing that with increasing frequency.
Russian and Chinese militaries are increasingly trying to bully American forces because they are “taking advantage of our weakness” and “publicly humiliating us,” according to a respected retired Air Force general and Fox News military analyst.
“It’s a slap in the face” to the United States, Retired General Tom McInerney says, and President Barack Obama “should not accept that kind of behavior.”
The president “unilaterally disarmed America,” adding “we have all these social experiments,” according to McInerney’s 18-minute exclusive video interview for The Daily Caller News Foundation. By transforming America’s foreign policy, McInerney says Obama’s America is known as a nation that will “protect your enemies and deny your allies support.”
Running through the world’s hot spots accentuated by Obama’s failed foreign policy, McInerney says he is “very worried” that Israel has not gotten the weapons and protection it needs from the United States for its survival.
Gen. McInerney goes on to clarify that he is not advocating for shooting down Russian jets that “buzz” our naval ships, but that he would recommend escorting them with aircraft of our own. He also tells the interviewer that when he enlisted, the United States had about 150 fighter squadrons and today we have around 50 — one-third of the firepower.
