In the latest escalation of tension worldwide, four-star U.S. Air Force General Mike Minihan, head of Air Mobility Command, told his officers in a memo addressed to all air wing commanders in Air Mobility Command and other Air Force operational commanders that they should be preparing for war with China.
In the memo sent Friday and obtained by NBC News, Gen. Mike Minihan, head of Air Mobility Command, said, “I hope I am wrong. My gut tells me will fight in 2025.” Minihan predicted in the memo that because both Taiwan and the U.S. will have presidential elections in 2024, the U.S. will be “distracted,” and Chinese President Xi Jinping will have an opportunity to move on Taiwan.
During the month of February, he directs all AMC personnel to “fire a clip into a 7-meter target with the full understanding that unrepentant lethality matters most. Aim for the head.” He also orders all personnel to update their records and emergency contacts.
Is the US unprepared for a potential war with China?
A Clip? The fact that an Air Force general doesn’t even know the proper firearms terminology when talking to his men may indicate how poorly prepared we are to fight a war with China. In fact, numerous recent studies are raising alarm bells about how unprepared we really are.
A study published by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) warnd that the Biden administraions self-imposed burden of supplying Kiev with weapons endangers the US in its capacity to ready itself in the event of a possible armed conflict with China, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday. “The bottom line is the defense industrial base, in my judgment, is not prepared for the security environment that now exists,” Seth Jones, senior vice president at the CSIS and author of the study, told WSJ.
Since the start of the so-called conflict in Ukraine, the United States has committed more than $130 billion in military equipment and supplies to Ukraine. They’ve also left our stockpiles incredibly vulnerable.
Conor Savoy, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, “If you look at what we’re providing, it’s advanced weapons systems, anti-tank rockets, rifles, small-arms ammunition, body armor…”
The U.S. Department of Defense disputed the suggestion that the U.S. is running low on its weapons stockpiles for Ukraine.
“The Department has provided a mix of capabilities to Ukraine – we, and they, are not over-reliant on any one system,” DOD spokesperson Jessica Maxwell told CNBC in an email. “We have been able to transfer equipment from U.S. stocks to Ukraine while managing risks to military readiness.”
The Pentagon is “working with industry to replenish depleted stocks on an accelerated basis,” Maxwell said. “This includes providing funding to buy more equipment, set up new production lines, and support additional worker shifts. We still have the necessary inventory for our needs.”
The Rise of Wokeness in the Military
Complaints by veterans about younger generations who lack discipline and traditional values are as old as war itself. But what we are seeing happening to today’s military may be one of the biggest threats to our preparedness in our history. Woke ideology is undermining military readiness. At issue are a series of military policies on increasing diversity, allowing transgender recruits, and researching racial bias in the armed forces.
Defense Department officials have said the topics of diversity and inclusion among troops are critical to maintaining morale and building camaraderie within the fighting force. However, critics have blasted the efforts as “social engineering” that takes away from military readiness and battlefield training. In fact, many blame the social engineering on historic recruitment lows.
According to Military.com, The Army missed its recruiting goal by about 15,000 new soldiers in 2022, coming up 25% short of its goal at a time when each of the services were struggling to meet their benchmarks.
Thomas Spoehr, director of the Center for National Defense at The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, recently said that wokeness is the “chief worry of grizzled American veterans today.”
“The largest threat they see by far to our current military is the weakening of its fabric by radical progressive (or ‘woke’) policies being imposed, not by a rising generation of slackers, but by the very leaders charged with ensuring their readiness,” he wrote. “Wokeness in the military is being imposed by elected and appointed leaders in the White House, Congress, and the Pentagon who have little understanding of the purpose, character, traditions, and requirements of the institution they are trying to change.”
“Is anyone surprised that potential recruits — many of whom come from rural or poor areas of the country — don’t want to spend their time being lectured about white privilege?” he wrote.
You really can’t make this shit up! This is our new WOKE military!
“Hi! My name is Jony, and I use he/him pronouns,” Naval Undersea Warfare Center engineer Jony Rozon, who sports a rainbow-colored t-shirt, states in the video’s opening.
The official training video is meant to emphasize “the importance of using correct pronouns as well as polite etiquette when you may not be sure of someone’s pronouns,” according to the Navy, which late last month published the video online. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service touts the footage as an “official U.S. Navy video” posted by Air Force staff sergeant John Vannucci.
In an interview with Fox News, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, a West Point graduate and Army officer who served in Germany during the Cold War, talked about the campaign he is launching, including TV ads and a website, to target what he calls “woke polices” directed toward the military.
“How can we ask young men and women who have decided to risk their lives for America, even die for America, to affirm that our country is inherently racist?” Pompeo wrote in a Sept. 28 opinion column for Fox. “How can we ask them to view their brothers and sisters in arms through the narrow prisms of race or gender? The clear and obvious answer is that we cannot — not without putting their lives at risk on the battlefield. A woke military is a weak military.”
Removing Patriots in Basic Training
During the COVID debacle, the Pentagon issued new guidelines to root out “extremism”; in actuality, it was nothing more than an attempt to purge the military of all patriotic Americans.
Basic training was changed to focus on tackling social issues and rooting out sexual assault, harassment, racism, and political extremism. For example, at Fort Jackson — one of the Army’s main basic training centers — Lt. Col. Larry Steward’s pilot program of naming “SASH influencers” (for students against sexual harassment) in each unit is expanding to cover all recruit platoons.
In the Air Force, it’s no longer about flying planes or defending your country; it’s now about social justice and accepting trannies as your bunkmate!
“I don’t believe we’re here to break down people; I’m not going to tolerate that,” said Col. Jeff Pixley, commander of the Air Force training center.
“When I get up to speak to them, I’ll say I don’t care if come here with deeply held beliefs, but if you tell me you can’t work with someone because they’re a different gender or a different race or because they are transgender, and if that’s what you say — I say you can get on the bus back home,” he said.
Navy training goes woke?
In 2022, the Navy announced they were adding two extra weeks of training to focus on “behavior” and treating people with respect.
Rear Adm. Jennifer Couture, who heads the Naval Service Training Command, told the Associated Press that the two extra weeks of classes would reinforce the behavior desired in a US naval officer. The additional two weeks will be devoted to the ‘Sailor for Life’ course phase where recruits would take in mentorship classes focused on avoiding bad behavior.
In 2022, the leader of the Navy SEALs announced that they were developing programs to more actively recruit from more diverse regions of the country.
What does this mean for Preppers?
Well, to start, it should scare the hell out of every red-blooded American to know that this is what is being projected around the world. When this is the new face of our fighting forces, do you really think it is going to take long for our enemies to start thinking they can beat us?
We have been taken over from within! They are systematically destroying the defensive capabilities of our country and purging the military of real men and real patriots.
Take the lessons you have hopefully learned over the last two years, and start planning for things to get worse!
The COVID pandemic scam was only the beginning; it was never about a virus, it was always about killing your spirit and killing the American Dream. What’s happening in the military, and what’s happening in our schools is the next phase of the destruction!
Short-term Threats you should be ready for:
- Expect more social unrest events: Groups like BLM and Antifa will feel emboldened, while patriotic American will take the fall – it’s already starting as they are purging patriots from the military.
- Homeschool your kids! The same nonsense that is going on in the military is happening in your kids classroom everyday!
- The censorship of the internet will ramp up quickly!
