Out of date weaponry, which results in one military base being defended by (supposedly) captured Russian Pantsir missiles from Libya, astonishingly expensive but continually underperforming F35 aircraft, and undercooked, ill-prepared soldiery, are just some of the current woes of the ‘mighty’ US armed forces.
Newly minted, or rather recently dug up and freshly painted to loosely resemble a living person – President Joe ‘excessively touchy-feely’ Biden, plans to turn this, ahem… ‘elite’ fighting force into a veritable freak show, freshly manicured and coiffured, shaving and leg-waxing optional. But, of course, entirely ‘woke’. The primary object apparently being – no, not combat readiness – but to reduce military sexual violence offences – and possibly, just between you and me, in a forlorn hope to keep the recruiting numbers up somewhere near expected levels (‘forlorn’ because the growing ingrained dumbness, health related and anti-social issues rampant within American youth, kind of work against that).
Sounds more like a recipe for orgiastic galas and mardi-gras to me. But then, it would undoubtedly win just as many wars as America’s best (notwithstanding Hollywood dramas) has ever done – zero.
