Obama To America’s Enemies: ‘I Will Veto Any Effort To Maintain U.S. National Security’

November 24, 2011

For the record, the Pentagon already had it’s budget slashed by $450 billion during a turbulent and violent time – and during a time when Obama has repeatedly demanded that the U.S. military intervene in several wars (Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, and now likely Syria) as well as expand the U.S. military global presence (in Australia – to the outrage of China).

“Pentagon officials are pushing back against cutting any more beyond the $450 billion they’ve already been asked to make, but at half the federal government’s entire discretionary budget — and growing — the defense budget is an obvious place to keep cutting.”

Now Obama is demanding that the military be cut by another $600 billion on top of that $450 billion.  He wants to preside over the destruction of America’s military strength.  And he is succeeding in his failure.

One of the characteristics of “God damn America” is that we would have a president who is determined to gut our national security when we need it the most.

Which is precisely why Obama is trying to gut our military when we need it the most; he is the epitome and the embodiment of God damn America.

Here’s what OBAMA’S OWN SECRETARY OF DEFENSE SAID ABOUT CUTTING OUR MILITARY BUDGET:

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has warned of the possible damage to national security with a supercommittee failure. That warning is echoed by leaders of every service and by others.

They are worried because the same Budget Control Act that gives unprecedented power to the special panel of six Republicans and six Democrats also comes with what Panetta calls a “doomsday mechanism” in case a majority of committee members refuse to reach a deal.

The mechanism — sequestration — forces future defense budgets and some popular entitlement programs to take across-the-board cuts. For defense, the deepest cut would occur in 2013, followed by automatic cuts of up to $55 billion a year for eight more years. This would be on top of $465 billion in defense cuts already planned over the next decade.

Recently, Panetta laid out in new detail what will befall defense programs if “maximum” sequestration is triggered so defense cuts total almost $1 trillion over the decade.

“The impacts…would be devastating,” Panetta wrote. In fiscal 2013, assuming the president exercises his authority to exempt military personnel accounts from automatic cuts, a 23-percent cut “would have to be applied equally to each major investment and construction program” of the Department of Defense, leaving “most of our ship and construction projects unexecutable — you cannot buy three quarters of a ship or a building.”

Many civilian workers would be furloughed, Panetta said.

“The situation does not get better” beyond 2013, he added, with cuts of up to $100 billion a year possible compared to the 2012 defense budget.

“Rough estimates suggest after 10 years of these cuts, we would have the smallest ground force since 1940, the smallest number of ships since 1915, and the smallest Air Force in its history,” Panetta wrote.

Wartime funding for Afghanistan would not be directly impacted, the secretary explained, but war efforts would suffer.

“Contracting personnel would be cut, resulting in delays in the contracts and the contract oversight that support the war. Payroll personnel would be cut, resulting in late payments to wartime vendors, and legal and policy support would be disrupted,” Panetta advised.

That’s what Obama’s OWN Secretary of Defense says.

Here’s what our Traitor-in-Chief says to those who care about their country:

“My message to them is simple: No. I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending. There will be no easy off ramps on this one.”

As we speak, the United States Navy is preparing to lay off 3,000 mid-level career sailors with ten years of experience who form the BACKBONE of our ability to protect our nation.

It won’t be long before Iran gets the nuclear bomb and the means to deliver that bomb. The day they do, they will be able to launch a wave of international terrorism and they will be able to block the Strait of Hormuz. With impunity.

George Bush TRIED to keep America safe from the Iranian threat. But Democrats – and in particular Barack Hussein Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Rodham Clinton – did everything they could to successfully frustrate the safeguarding of America from its worst enemies:

THE NATION – Democrats rip Bush’s Iran policy
Presidential candidates say a new intelligence report shows that the administration has been talking too tough.

Democratic presidential candidates teamed up during a National Public Radio debate here Tuesday to blast the Bush administration over its policy toward Iran, arguing that a new intelligence assessment proves that the administration has needlessly ratcheted up military rhetoric.

While the candidates differed somewhat over the level of threat Iran poses in the Mideast, most of them sought to liken the administration’s approach to Iran with its buildup to the war in Iraq.

It’s not enough to say that they were completely wrong. They were DEAD wrong. They were TRAITOR wrong.

Meanwhile, on top of Iran moving full-speed ahead in developing nuclear weapons, Russia just threatened the United States with a clear act of war because they understand that Barack Hussein Obama is a feckless puke who is dismantling our ability to stand up and fight as quickly as he possibly can:

Medvedev threatens to target U.S. missile shield in Europe if no deal is reached
By Will Englund and William Wan, Updated: Wednesday, November 23, 6:02 AM

MOSCOW — President Dmitry Medvedev said Wednesday that Russia will target the American missile defense system in Europe with its missiles if Moscow cannot reach an agreement with Washington and NATO on how the system will be built and operated.

Russia just threatened Obama with World War III unless Obama backs down like the pencil-necked little coward they know he is.

Even during the height of the Soviet Union’s power, Russia would never have DARED to say anything that threatening to Ronald Reagan.

But then again, Ronald Reagan wasn’t a weak, pathetic, gutless fool who despised the United States of America.

And the Russians knew that Ronald Wilson Reagan – unlike Barack Hussein Obama – would stand up for the United States in a strong, powerful way.
