Obama’s military neglect: Is it intentional? – ALAN KEYES
By design or incompetence, Obama appears to be intent on creating a quagmire in which to dissipate America‘s military strength and resources. Most Americans have no objection to seeing their loved ones in the military risk and give their lives to fulfill the oaths that preserve the liberty of our people.
It is deeply wrong to ask that they do so when the strategy that makes moral and military sense of their sacrifice has been cast aside. As I indicated in the above quoted article posted at Loyal to Liberty in May 2009, almost as soon as he entered the White House Obama abandoned the strategic vision that made sense of the U.S. military’s deployment to Afghanistan. Was this the result of incompetence?
