A national defense analyst says the U.S. military has lost its ability to fight a prolonged conventional war because of President Obama.
“Thirty years ago, we had 350,000,” Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis (USA-Ret.) says of the U.S. armed forces. “Now we’re down to 60 to 65,000 and most of those are not fighters.”
The Pentagon announced last year that the U.S. military would shrink to numbers the mirror pre-World War II levels.
According to The Daily Beast, the Pentagon has learned it’s not prepared for a sustained military campaign against Russia if a conflict erupts in Europe.
“The U.S. military has run the numbers on a sustained fight with Moscow,” the news website reported in an August 14 story, “and they do not look good for the American side.”
