The Clintons unleashed a chain reaction when they named the 4 stars that were sent to Congress for advice and consent. Each of those flag officers ruined the service they were the heads of and they also went on to ensure that all the 3 stars and potential 4 stars were Clinton men. Wesley Clark was the leader of the pack of dismal failure. He instituted the complete collapse of NATO and the post-communist relationship with the Russian Federation. If you had to pick the very worst men to lead the Army, Navy, Air Force, and even the Marines, they picked them.
The current crop were all selected by boards made up of officers selected by the same officers selected by the Clinton team and the Obama team and now we have a navy that is pretty much worthless and an army that can't fight its way out of a wet paper bag. The Marines have a boss who decided that the 911 force doesn't need a heavy entry capability and has cut the Marines down to it's original concept of the fleet marine force without actually having that many ships to embark them on because the amphibious ships burn readily in homeport and cannot safely approach the shore in any contested region. When I say that, I mean the amphibious ships are meat if they get within 200 miles of any enemy coast.
How exactly did the Russian Federation become our enemy? Why are we at war with them? Why is NATO at war with them? Think about it. Give it 5 minutes of serious thought. Set aside the wounded spirits and angst you feel at any war and just ask yourself. WHY THE FUCK ARE WE AT WAR WITH RUSSIA NOW? WHY IS NATO AT WAR WITH RUSSIA NOW?
NATO right now cannot compel the unarmed immigrants in their millions from invading their countries and neither can we.
