America is a very sick nation right now. It is not just our Common Core controlled school systems, our Obamacare health system, half the country dependent on entitlement checks from the federal government, or our legalization of homosexual marriages, but our defense system is now in bad shape too.
The following is an excerpt from a great summary of the current situation in the U.S. Army from USdefensewatch.com.
The US Army is sick; sick in body, mind and spirit. No matter how many times Pentagon perfumed princes and feather merchants bedazzle us with light shows, veterans know the truth. We always know. We know that the Army is suffering from a number of ailments, that unless stemmed will destroy the institution that has been around since the Massachusetts boys went live in 1775.
The first problem lies with the people at the helm of the US Army Titanic. From Secretary of the Army John McHugh down to the joint chiefs to corps and division and brigade and battalion commanders, the Army is infested with “Yes men” and moral cowards who will not speak up about anything affecting the Army. Silence is not golden gentlemen. In the Army’s case, it’s actually quite deadly. You could probably count on the half of one hand the amount of actual leaders in the Army from the rank of Brigadier General to General.
The perfumed prince malaise does not include enlisted soldiers, who as usual, must bear the brunt of idiotic policies, carry out ridiculous orders, and somehow try to salvage and make do with an Army that is a currently a mirage at best and a hologram at worst. These people are and always have been the salt of the earth.
Political correctness and feminism is destroying the very soul of the Army, the warrior culture, the Brotherhood of War. In the US Army of 2015, warriors need not apply. The legends of the US Army; men like Patton, Audie Murphy, Lightning Joe Collins, Maurice Rose, Gunfighter Emerson, Jim Gavin, Hal Moore and thousands of others would have no place in today’s Great Social Experiment Army. The US Army isn’t seeking warriors, but corporate lackeys, who will roll over on every absurd order given to them. (see the full report)
All of this confirms my belief that our country has reached the tipping point. Contrary to what many Christians are saying and hoping, Donald Trump is not the answer and neither is Ben Carson.
The only solution for America is the one no politician is willing to say publicly, America must repent before the one true and living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ. We became a great nation because our forefathers walked in right relationship with Him, which qualified us to receive His blessings. Our nation will not survive the days ahead without returning to a right relationship with Him.
Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 1:7). The absence of the fear of the Lord leads to what we are seeing now, complete confusion.
