Before Nosotros Go To War, Allow’south Have A Wait At The Current State Of The U.Southward. Military…

If we are going to have a war with Russian federation, perhaps we should determine if our military is actually prepared to fight such a war first.  Unfortunately, as I will detail below, the answer is very clear.  At one fourth dimension, the U.Due south. possessed the greatest fighting machine e’er assembled, but decades of fail, incompetence and cultural deterioration have taken a devastating toll.  But look at what happened in Afghanistan.  After nearly ii decades of fighting, we couldn’t even defeat a ragged bunch of drug dealers and goat herders known as the Taliban.  In fact, the Taliban appears to be even stronger today than when we first invaded.  And now nosotros think that nosotros can have on the Russian military?

Sadly, the truth is that nosotros aren’t fix for any sort of a major disharmonize at this stage.  Before this week, I came across an article that explained that only about vii out of every 10 Air Force planes is fifty-fifty capable of flying right now…

The latest numbers show that the Air Force has fabricated no progress in improving the readiness of its planes with a charge per unit of 71.5% or vii out of 10 planes in 2021.

The United states Air  Force is supposed to have mission capable rates of 75% to 80%, but nearly the merely shipping that run into that criteria are the unmanned drones. The high ratings of the drones disguise the fact that the actual numbers, when cleaved down past aircraft, are worse.

The F-35As, the fifth generation fighters that would be crucial in countering any sizable aerial engagement with Communist Prc, dropped catastrophically from 76% to 68.eight%.

We are supposed to be the most technologically avant-garde war machine on the planet.

That is terrible.

And when members of the U.Southward. Regular army were asked if their units were ready to fight, the survey results were depressingly low…

In a survey of more than than five,400 soldiers and civilians of unlike ranks conducted by the U.S. Army in July and August 2020, 14 percent of respondents said their unit would be ready to deploy, fight, and win anywhere in the world immediately. Some 13 percent of those surveyed said they would need more time, while iii per centum said they would exist gear up to become in a week, and iv percent in a month.

How can things maybe be this bad?

Our military has 1 chore.  They are supposed to exist set to fight when nosotros phone call on them.

So precisely how are they spending their fourth dimension if they have not been using it to practise that i job?

The U.Southward. Navy is not in bang-up shape either.

Right now, our Navy consists of only 296 vessels…

In FY 2022, armada size stays about the same, at 296 ships. Previously ordered ships go far in large numbers, only the Navy retires 15 ships, x early. Navy active-duty personnel subtract past 1,600 to 346,200.

296 ships may audio like a lot, but for a superpower like the United States it is actually a pathetically low number.

In fact, the number of ships in our fleet has about been cut in half since Ronald Reagan’due south second term in office…

The 600-ship Navy was a strategic plan of the United States Navy during the 1980s to rebuild its fleet later cutbacks that followed the terminate of the Vietnam War.[one] The plan, which originated with Republican leaders, was an important campaign plank of Ronald Reagan in the 1980 presidential election, who advocated a larger military and strategic confrontation with the Soviet Matrimony.[2]

The bodily number of ships peaked at 594 in 1987, before declining sharply subsequently the cease of the Cold War in 1989–1991.[four]

Looking frontward to the future, things look even more grim.

At this bespeak, over 70 percent of young Americans are automatically disqualified from military service for one reason or another…

More than seventy% of young Americans remain unable to join the armed forces due to obesity, education problems, or crime and drug records. Turning that around should be an issue of national importance, said Rear Adm. Dennis Velez, the caput of Navy Recruiting Control.

“Information technology is something that, equally a nation, we should proceed to work though … to make certain our children are healthier,” he said.

If that doesn’t alert you lot, it should.

And thanks to the soft and comfortable lifestyles that our young people relish today, those that make information technology through the recruitment process are more than physically fragile than always before…

According to a U.South. Army major, America’south youth are living a sedentary life that makes them fragile, prone to injury, and harder to successfully and easily transition from civilian life to the armed forces. The news comes from an official press release posted on the Defense Visual Information Distribution Service, a hub of official pictures, videos, and news published past the Pentagon

When ane military official was asked nearly this, he stated that this generation actually has weak skeletons which “break more than easily”…

When asked about the youth of today, Maj. Thibodeau was straightforward. “The ‘Nintendo Generation’ soldier skeleton is not toughened past activity prior to arrival, so some of them pause more hands,” he said.

Capt. Lydia Blondin, assistant main of physical therapy at Leonard Wood Army Customs Infirmary, detailed the kind of injuries she’s seen in the and then-called Nintendo Generation. “We encounter injuries ranging from acute fractures and falls, to tears in the ACL, to muscle strains and stress fractures, with the overwhelming majority of injuries related to overuse,” she said.


But at to the lowest degree our military is extremely proficient at making diversity videos…

After seeing how “inclusive” we are, I am certain that the Russians must be shaking in their boots.

Sending our sons and daughters off to die in a war on the other side of the globe is non something that should always be done lightly.

And a state of war with another superpower is something that nosotros should try very hard to avoid even if our armed services was in superlative shape.

Unfortunately, our military is nowhere near ready for such a conflict at this point, and our leaders should be honest with the American people virtually this.

Simply of class most of the population is going to continue to assume that the U.South. military machine is nonetheless the mighty fighting force that it once was, only that hasn’t been true for a very long time.
