Once again John you hit the nail on the head. Thank you for your insights. Some say our democracy is not perfect, and this is case in point: We elect dumbass donkeys to run the country. Hopefully, we will come to our senses.

So well written, and points made couldn't be more sharp. Essentially, if things don't reverse immediately, were doomed.

Excellent article, John. Your writing skills remain, as always, impeccable. The Biden administration has turned the US military into the laughingstock of the world. I'm proud of my time in the military 1968-1972. Virtually every veteran I know feels likewise. Standards were high, and both excellence and proper conduct were demanded. The Biden Clown Show is beyond abysmal.

Thanks Jim. When we have a peer or near-peer conflict the price will be paid in blood.

The “elites” in government nowadays do not understand what war is. Among other things, they seem to think that they can keep pushing the envelope with Russia without any serious retaliation. We shall see….

They're "poking the bear," and it's being done by a bunch of cowardly types who have never had skin in the game. We have lost important allies to Russia, China and Iran in the past two years. It's appalling.

The whole time I was reading this I kept thinking, ‘Hell yeah, man’.

This and lots of other problems are facing the US military. The fact that the majority of field-grade officers and generals are detached from what the situation is on the ground and that they’re more willing to make decisions in their own self-interest rather than for the boys who do the real work is endemic throughout the DoD.

That, and (like a lot of things) the military’s reaction to COVID has been a disaster for morale and mission readiness. I had several good friends who were damn good NCOs who where forced out because of the vaccine mandate. If the military ever does recover from the damage it’s done to itself, it’ll take years.

Sorry Mr. Lucas but your article, well written as it is, misses the point. The new regime in the USDOD (Which has actually been around since the Obama administration.) is in fact preparing to fight and win the next war. You, foolishly, imagine that war being fought against Russia or China. The new Praetorian Guard know what's coming and are preparing for it. The US military will fight its next war against the American people, and the Alphabet Brigade will be central to their victory. Who else but the "Trans" will have the deep seated, vicious, hatred of the normal needed to order and carry out the genocidal operations that will be needed to bring the former USA into compliance?

Army major? Well, Major Nidal Hasan was also an Army major. So, there's that.

IF ONLY it were "just" the Army. But, NO! It is ALL the services and the service academies

The Marine Corps isn't doing so well either; the current and the prospective Commandants are overseeing the destruction of Combined Arms by cutting infantry, cannon artillery battalions, Close Air Support aircraft and completely eliminating armor, engineer, and assault amphibian capabilities.

Those "leaders" don't see any problems at all with young ladies in combat infantry companies, or openly-serving gays in leadership positions with their infusion of sex into units and its undisputable corrosive effects on combat cohesion and trust.

Our entire armed forces will need a flush of its useless and excessively woke leadership to regain our ability to fight and win.

Thanks for your comment. I have followed the current reorganization of the Corps, albeit not real closely. I do not consider myself sufficiently knowledgeable to try to write about it, although my instincts align with yours. It seems to me that in his quest to be prepared for a littoral war with China, the Commandant is gutting the Corps' capabilities of performing other missions. But that is a "horseback opinion" that does not come from any great expertise or experience.

Semper Fi.

Also, they are not "lions led by donkeys." They are troons and other trash, led by retards.

She is a he, and will never be a woman. Do not reinforce their delusions.

Unfortunately, the woke communists now control the GAE's military. It is doubtful anyone will turn that around anytime soon, and it is a mark of the decline of the empire. The next war against a peer competitor will see the GAE's military shredded.

Were the GAE stupid enough to send its military against Russia in Europe, that military would lose badly. Just see the GAE mercenaries who went to fight for Ukraine, and turned around and turned tail after being under a Russian artillery barrage. The GAE would not be fighting poor brown people, armed only with AK47s and grenade launchers.
