This may be a tough article for many to read, and tough words for many Americans to hear, but America needs to hear them.
Under the last several presidential administrations, the U.S. military has been purposefully changed from the most effective war-fighting force in the history of the Earth, into a social justice 'woke' societal experiement, no longer capable of fighting a near-peer conflict with China.
Believe me, our enemies are watching.
Today's resignation of Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly is a travesty for American military preparedness. He simply told the 'unwoke' truth, and is being skewered for it.
We have previously wrote the firing of Captain Brett Crozier was entirely justified. The captain of the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt simply didn't have the authority to do what he did. It was outside the UCMJ and outside regulations, but he did it anyway. He put the mission of the Navy at risk, and he should have lost his command.
This is what he decided on his own was the best course of action.
“Removing the majority of personnel from a deployed U.S. nuclear aircraft carrier and isolating them for two weeks may seem like an extraordinary measure. ... This is a necessary risk,” Crozier continued. “Keeping over 4,000 young men and women on board the TR is an unnecessary risk and breaks faith with those Sailors entrusted to our care.”
To use the words of woke Greta, HOW DARE YOU?
How does a lowly Navy Captin get to make these decisions, and if he doesn't get his way, leaks the information to the press so our enemies will know our deterrence is weakened with a deployed carrier out of action? The gall this man has; he should be in jail.
Secretary Motley used harsh words in his criticism of the Captain during his remarks to the crew. These words were justified.
“If he [Crozier] didn’t think, in my opinion, that this information [the letter] wasn’t going to get out into the public, in this day and information age that we live in, then he was either A, too naive or too stupid to be a commanding officer of a ship like this," Modly said. "The alternative is that he did this on purpose."
“So think about that when you cheer the man off the ship who exposed you to that,” Modly added. “I understand you love the guy. It’s good that you love him. But you’re not required to love him.”
These words are spot on. The only thing these sailors who signed on the dotted line to serve the commander-in-chief with their lives were to do was to salute and take the hill, if that is what the chain of command decided.
As we have mentioned before, what if there were bigger things at play here? What if China was moving forces or acting in a threatening manner? What if this ship was needed in the Pacific for deterrence?
Now our enemies will have even more evidence that the backbone of our military is weak.
In Israel recently, a female officer was relieved of command for refusing to force her troops to erect a tent in bad weather as ordered, because she 'cared about her troops' and considered them her 'children'.
The Department of Defense has become feminized. Soldiers, sailors airman and Marines now know it is ok to look out for yourself more than the mission of defending the country. Hey, if I get sick, no matter the fight, I can just go home right?
In my opinion, this is the direct result of the feminization of our military. Why are we pushing for more and more women into the armed forces? Into the service academies? Do we want 50% female? What do we gain by this? Or more importantly, what do we lose?
You may say, this time it is different. In the next war, we won't need personal strength and toughness. We only will need someone to operate the drones. That may be partially true; but, I think it is the height of folly to believe a 50% feminized military will help us win wars. Quite the opposite. Physical strength still counts, and for the most part, women are the weaker physical sex. That is just Mother Nature. But hey, we know most on the Left don't believe in science anyway, with 64 genders and all.
The continued loss of standards in our armed forces will bear consequences. We could very well lose a war with China in certain theaters because of it. You can see the loss of standards in the recent decisions to allow beards, turbans, and other religious garb for those that want to wear them. You can see it in the push for transgender and other 'rights' over the mission of the armed forces.
News today broke that China put COVID-19 patients in the crematoriums while still moving, burning them alive. They slice open political prisoners while still alive to harvest their organs to sell on the black market. They have over one million of their own citizens in concentration camps.
Do you think they would give a rat's ass about some sailors sick on a ship?
The devolution of military bearing needs to stop and it needs to stop now. Modle's firing did nothing to halt that fateful slide. Quite the opposite.
With the possible use of a bioweapon against the West from China killing thousands of Americans as we speak, now is not the time to show weakness.
I'm disappointed in the Trump administration for today's action.
