Barack Obama’s foreign policy has been an abysmal failure.
From the rise of ISIS to the Iranian nuclear deal, he’s managed to aid our enemies more than any other president before him. Included in his failures abroad has been a total mismanagement of the military, which again has made our adversaries incredibly happy while frustrating enlisted soldiers and military brass alike.
His latest move likely won’t sit too well with them either. For the first time since WWII, all U.S. aircraft carriers have been called to port.
Why? Because it’s Obama, and Obama does dumb sh-t.
From the Conservative Tribune:
For the first time since World War II, there is no U.S. aircraft carrier at sea to respond to threats, according to Fox News.
In a nearly unprecedented move, there will likely be a nearly one-month gap between the docking of the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, which docked last Friday, and the deployment of the USS George H.W. Bush, the ship meant to replace it. According to Defense News, the Bush is not scheduled to leave the port of Norfolk until at least the Jan. 20 inauguration of Donald Trump, and it could possibly leave later.
The Bush, Fox News reported, has been delayed in the shipyards for over six months. A carrier at port could be “surged” in order to meet any threat that emerges, the Navy said. However, at a time of geopolitical instability, it is notable that our president has taken arguably taken our most important tool of military prestige and removed it from the waters of the world.
Good job, Obama. Nothing says strong national defense like recalling the most important assets needed for rapid response to whatever threats we may receive.
Apparently the plan from here is to sit back and pray that with our diminished presence across the globe our enemies don’t try anything shady. What a great idea.
Hang in there, folks. Just 15 more days until he’s evicted from OUR house.
