 Weakened US unable to fight more wars

361410_US-forcesYears of war have left the US military exhausted and depleted, Gordon Duff writes.

 While America talks going to war in Europe, those who follow the real condition of America’s military forces, active duty, reserve and veterans, they know it to be nothing but empty talk.  Over a dozen years of war has left America’s military manpower exhausted, physically, mentally and “politically.”

Any new war will have to be fought without experienced non-commissioned officers or top special operations professionals.  Studies now show that they haven’t simply given up on military service, but that an entire generation of American military is dead, dying or disabled.

War Hoax

Fewer Americans are willing to believe, willing to blindly follow, willing to die for what more and more now clearly see as wars for Wall Street.

Perhaps the most carefully hidden impact on America’s ability to wage war is the epidemic of military/veteran suicides, numbers far more than anyone imagined.  Current suicide numbers actually exceed the total combat deaths from both the Vietnam and Korean wars.

Current “Epic Failure”

There is a reason that American troop deployments into Poland and Latvia are so pitiful, despite the fact that nearly all US troops are out of the Middle East.  America’s “war games” deployment meant to intimidate Putin’s Russia accentuates a frightening fact few are aware of.  America’s trained military “inventory” is nearly totally depleted.

GENERAL EISENHOWER WARNED AGAINST MAINTAINING

A STANDING ARMY

On Jan. 17, 1961, President Dwight Eisenhower gave the nation a dire warning about what he described as a threat to democratic government. He called it the military-industrial complex, a formidable union of defense contractors and the armed forces.

Here’s an excerpt:

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist”….

“Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of ploughshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions.”

Former Secretary of Defense, Gates has also discussed the difficulty of cutting military spending:

“What it takes is the political will and willingness, as Eisenhower possessed, to make hard choices — choices that will displease powerful people both inside the Pentagon, and out.”
