Obama is destroying US military’s fighting ability from within, retired general warns; ‘It’s not an accident.’

The critic in question is not some crank[1]. He’s a retired two-star general who held a variety of high-level command positions, including commanding the 2nd Infantry Division, which mans the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, and the US-Israeli Combined Task Force for Missile Defense.

And he’s disgusted with what the president has done to military morale by spending more time on whether gays are in foxholes and whether soldiers can get sex-change operations than actually being ready to fight and win the nation’s military confrontations.

Taking part in a panel at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, Army Maj. Gen. Robert Dees said the Obama administration is using the U.S. military for “social engineering” and the end result is damaging the nation’s ability to defend itself, according to CNS News[2].

“Not only are we losing physical readiness to fight, we have to fix the problem of moral readiness,” Dees said.

Since Obama was first elected to office, restrictions have been lifted on women in combat, homosexuals now serve openly and there’s an effort currently underway to remove a ban on transgender soldiers. And the president announced on Friday the nomination of Army Acting Under Secretary Eric Fanning as the first openly gay secretary of the Army.

“I think the moral readiness of our forces is even more important than the physical readiness, which is very low,” Dees told CNS News. “The moral readiness is degraded by social experimentation within our military.”
