The NYT reports that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel will today announce plans to slash the United States Army’s fighting force to its smallest level since before World War II as well as eliminating an entire class of attack aircraft, including the fearsome A-10. Obama officials say that the smaller fighting force reflects budget realities and an end to large-scale foreign wars.

Tarnished Brass: Is the U.S. Military Profession in Decline?

Tarnished Brass: Is the U.S. Military Profession in Decline?
Richard H. Kohn Nearly twenty years after the end of the Cold War, the American military, financed by more money than the entire rest of the world spends on its armed forces, failed to defeat insurgencies or fully suppress sectarian civil wars in two crucial countries, each with less than a tenth of the U.S. population,
after overthrowing those nations’ governments in a matter of weeks. Evidence of overuse and understrength in the military abounds: the longest individual overseas deployments since World War II and repeated rotations into those deployments; the common and near-desperate use of bonuses to keep officers and enlisted soldiers from leaving.
Nor is it only the ground forces that are experiencing the pinch. The U.S. Air Force has had to cut tens of thousands of people to buy the airplanes it believes it needs. The U.S. Navy faces such declining numbers of ships that it needs allies to accomplish the varied demands of power projection, sea control, and the protection of world commerce.

WASHINGTON – Thousands of people converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall on Sunday morning and tore down the barricades blocking it off, protesting the closure of the memorial during the federal government shutdown.
…..Nothing can describe the affront done to the initial Honor Flight group of 91 vets from Mississippi and their assistants when they met the new word in the urban dictionary, the word now known as “barry-cades!”
“Greater Love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his fellow man.” John 15:13 is the guiding principle these brave men now in their 80s and 90s followed as they fought to keep America and her Allies free in World War II.

It’s been 8 days since the WWII veterans were locked out of the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. A plethora of restrictions, blockages and shut downs have blanketed the nation since then. They are for the expressed purpose of, as one Park Ranger put it, “Make life as difficult for people as we can.”
Why World War II Vets?….. “Commentators drew the ironic and sad comparison that the President was far more concerned about “guarding” this open air area, than he had been in sending guards to rescue Ambassador Stevens the night of the attacks in Benghazi. And only in an upside down universe like an Obama administration would anyone ever believe that the World War II memorial needed “guarding” from World War II veterans to begin with. Among the topics I’ve broached in recent years of broadcasts, none have riled the irritation level of the listeners to my 900+ affiliates anywhere equal to the Obama administration’s specific targeting of World War II veterans as payback in the debate over the shutdown. “

For much of this last week, according to the spokespeople for the National Park Service, the NPS has asserted that the White House specifically ordered that they barricade the open air memorial commemorating the sacrifice and service of the veterans of World War II.
In multiple statements to the press NPS spokespeople made it clear that they were directly instructed by the White House specifically to shut the memorial that had previously never been closed.

When and how did the National Park Service become “the shock troops of the punitive bureaucracy”?
The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination.

Imagine you are a veteran of World War II approaching your 90th birthday. This may be your last opportunity to visit the memorial that was erected to honor your service.
You have come to your nation’s Capital, only to find that your president has ordered that memorial barricaded to keep you out.
As a teenager, you jumped off a landing craft into the surf at Omaha Beach and watched as your buddies were cut to pieces in the sand. Or maybe you endured the horrors of Iwo Jima or Guadalcanal battling the Japanese in the Pacific.

The caller also described how the U.S. Naval fleet retreated South of Pearl Harbor, away from Japan, days before the attacks, signifying the U.S. Government possessed foreknowledge of the impending attack on Pearl Harbor, which took place on December, 7, 1941.

Police in Washington state are searching for two young suspects who beat a World War II veteran to death in a parking lot Wednesday night.
The Spokane Police Department says in a press release officers responded to reports of an assault and found the victim in his car with serious head injuries. He later died in the hospital.
68 years ago, at 11:02 am on August 9th, 1945, an all-Christian bomber crew dropped a plutonium bomb, on Nagasaki, Japan. That bomb was the second and last atomic weapon that had as its target a civilian city. Somewhat ironically, as will be elaborated upon later in this essay, Nagasaki was the most Christian city in Japan and ground zero was the largest cathedral in the Orient.
These baptized and confirmed airmen did their job efficiently, and they accomplished the mission with military pride. There was no way that the crew could not have known that what they were participating in met the definition of an international war crime (according to the Nuremberg Principles that were very soon to be used to justify the execution of many German Nazis)……………
…..Mullins writes: “In the United States, the schools held daily bomb drills, with the children hiding under their desks. No one told them that thousands of schools children in Hiroshima had been incinerated in their classrooms; the desks offered no protection against nuclear weapons.
The moral effect on the children was devastating. If they were to be vaporized in the next ten seconds, there seemed little reason to study, marry and have children, or prepare for a steady job.

“ [The] course of World War II would lead these two men to very different ends: one to the office of President of the United States and the other to a soldier’s grave on a foreign shore. ”
Near the end of the war (February 1945), Eisenhower ranked the capabilities of U.S. generals in Europe. Omar Bradley and Carl Spaatz he rated as the best. Walter Bedell Smith was ranked number 2, and Patton number 3, followed by Mark Clark, and Lucian Truscott.
Bradley himself had been asked by Eisenhower to rank all the generals in December of 1945, and he ranked them as follows: Bedell Smith #1, Spaatz #2, Courtney Hodges #3, Elwood Quesada #4, Truscott #5, and Patton #6 (others were also ranked) 
These rankings probably included factors other than Patton’s success as a battle leader. As to that, Alan Axelrod in his book Patton (Palgrave Macmillan, 2006) quotes German Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt as stating “Patton was your best” and, surprisingly, Joseph Stalin as stating that the Red Army could neither have planned nor executed Patton’s advance across France. D’Este reports that even Hitler begrudgingly respected Patton, once calling him “that crazy cowboy general.”
Bad Sam – Conspiracy Theories with a ring of truth to them… Re General George Patton… “At the end of the war Patton was in fact the highest ranking officer in the US Military. In peacetime the Armed Forces would fall under the authority of Patton. Eisenhower didn’t relish having Patton giving him orders.”
…..Rank: Eisenhower had outranked Patton during war, having been appointed Supreme Commander.
At the end of the war Patton was in fact the highest ranking officer in the US Military. In peacetime the Armed Forces would fall under the authority of Patton. Eisenhower didn’t relish having Patton giving him orders.
There was widespread talk at home of Patton for President. This was bad news for the Democrats, because they had no comparable opponent. It was not good news for the Republicans though, because Patton was considered too stubborn and iron-willed to take orders from Wall Street and professional politicians. Thus, many factions viewed Patton as a threat.
Who Are The Suspects In The Death of General Patton?
The Russians were in great dread of Patton, wondering whether he would continue to wage war and cross through their lines. They remained on “alert status” until his death. Patton wrote to his wife and others that when he returned to the US he was planning to retire from the Army and try his hand a politics as a Republican. No doubt he would have reported the Russian kidnapping of 25,000 American troops, and would have taken action. The full story of these lost men only started to emerge in the 1970s, and has been documented since the fall of the USSR.

This information is provided for the use of the members of the armed forces, their families, friends and supporters, and all who are concerned about the current direction of U.S. policy toward Iraq.
The military oath taken at the time of induction reads:
“I,____________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to the regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

Repressing “Un-American Activities”: The Historical Roots of Today’s Homeland Surveillance State | Global Research

Excerpts from Vanguard Press feature story, April 29, 1980
Political rights are so easily taken for granted – until they’re threatened or curtailed by repressive laws. In the United States, they are usually most vulnerable when people are anxious about some outside threat.
After World War II, for instance, dissent became risky as relations with Russia hardened into Cold War I. Hysteria about domestic Communist subversion led quickly to state and congressional investigations of “un-American activities.” And in 1951, a Supreme Court decision led to the imprisonment of eleven Communist leaders, not for any overt acts threatening national security, but rather for trying to organize a political party and teach Marxism.
Today the threats to political liberty are no less imminent.
Islamic Terrorism is Not Our Main Problem
The problem is cowardly and submissive American politicians.
It is not ignorance that drives policies so contrary to American interests, but the shallow, contradictory and self-defeating doctrine of political correctness (PC), which prevents, not just the formulation of effective national security strategies, but even a discussion of them.
The abolition of truth and the moral equivalence of PC allow politicians sufficient ambiguity to remain forever on the popular side of issues, while eliminating the need for ever taking a principled political position.
PC is a form of political dementia, which inevitably leads to political paralysis and failed policies.
During the prelude to World War II, among the chief causes of the futile policy of appeasement was the misjudgment of Hitler’s intentions. He did not seek simply to adjust the balance of power in Germany’s favor, but rather to replace the entire European political structure through German conquest and hegemony.
