Top US General: Obama Has Caused Military Readiness to Fall to Historic Levels

Thanks to Obama’s mismanagement of our military, one of our to generals is saying that our nation’s military readiness is at historic lows.

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno is warning that our nation is vulnerable in this age of Obama.

The Army is “only generating enough readiness for immediate consumption” while grappling with cuts that have left only a third of the service’s brigades ready, the chief of staff said Wednesday.

“It’s incumbent on all of us to understand that further reductions simply will put us into a place we simply cannot go,” Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno said at the AUSA Institute of Land Warfare Global Force Symposium and Exposition here.

He amplified the dangers he sees now and ahead, particularly with the effects of sequestration.

“Today our nation is facing enormous challenges. I believe we are at a strategic inflection point,” Odierno said. “Our nation is facing determined enemies across the globe that have the desire, the capabilities and with increasing capacity to threaten not only our security, but the security of our allies. We continue to witness change in velocity of instability, unforeseen just a few years ago.”

Obama is making us less safe every year.
