President Barack Obama is seeking to abolish two highly successful missile programs that experts say have helped the U.S. Navy maintain military superiority for the past several decades. Read more: www.washingtontimes.com...




The Tomahawk missile program—known as “the world’s most advanced cruise missile”—is set to be cut by $128 million under Obama’s fiscal year 2015 budget proposal and completely eliminated by fiscal year 2016, according to budget documents released by the Navy. Read more: www.washingtontimes.com...


The man is a TRAITOR!

Since the days of Carter the tomahawk has been the mainstay of every American potus since.

Tomahawk

I dunno maybe the guy the guy found that name 'tomahawk' offensive to native Americans, but the move to cancel the tomahawk, and the hellfire is as ASININE as it gets.

While we have the 'cash' to blow on people that don't even belong here. He virtually makes the navy useless, and leaving a legacy for the next potus almost nothing.



In addition to the monetary cuts to the program, the number of actual Tomahawk missiles acquired by the United States would drop significantly—from 196 last year to just 100 in 2015. The number will then drop to zero in 2016. Read more: www.washingtontimes.com...


Obama traitor fait accompli.

Maybe he will use the money saved to have the Statue of Liberty redesigned in a bent over position too?

That epic BONEHEAD move virtually makes the Arliegh Burkes, and Ticonderoga class destroyers, and cruisers

USELESS.

And those are BOTH cheaper to build, and operate than a multi billion dollar SUPER floating target called a air craft carrier.

Retiring the A10 warthog without developing a replacement platform and announcing that the F35 Turkey will do the role was another stroke of genius.

This presidents agenda should be absolutely clear by now to anyone who is paying even a passing glance at his antics...

The guy at every turn has done his best to undermine the country and destroy us as a nation. Fiscally. Culturally. Economicaly and militarily....

It's as plain as the smugness in his face

This government is just preparing for one of the most treacherous "fire sales" in history!


Fire Sale:Liquidation of a firm's assets at prices far below their fair market value (FMV) to achieve a quick sale, either to avoid a financial disaster or to satisfy the debts of an insolvent or bankrupt firm. Banks and other lenders usually value a firm assets at their fire sale value to judge their worth as collateral.

They have kept no secrets as to their plans for a NWO along with using Agenda 21 to bring the US down to a third world status.

Gun control? Open borders? Reduction in military strength, while increasing funding with private Mercenary corporations........

Not liking my crystal ball at the moment.

Was this due to the sequester agreed by both political parties in congress?

ok I read the link

Here is what Obama is proposing:


The Obama administration lowered its 2014 deficit forecast to $583 billion, the smallest in five years, and projected slower economic growth than seen four months ago.

In its mid-session budget update, the White House Office of Management and Budget projected this year’s deficit will be $66 billion less than its estimate on March 4.

The shortfall is estimated at $525 billion next year, compared with $564 billion expected in early March.

Hopefully Congress won't let this happen.

Considering how the Navy played their part in the JFK coverup, America has been under a military junta by default for a long time. Will be interesting to see how this goes.

Well that's this administration for you. If something actually works it's got to go.

I'm sure China is going to be very happy though.

Yeah, they all fall, but not usually at the hands of the very person sworn to protect the nation and its people.

And in other news. . . . .

The Obama administration announced that the new weapon program titled "Harsh Language" and the additional program "A red pen to draw a line" will be used instead of the highly successful weapons programs that he wants to eliminate.

I wonder if the president learned his military strategy but studying George Custer.

While we GUT our military.

Things like this are happening.



As Washington grapples with the visibly important issues of debt, the role and scope of government in Americans’ daily lives, and what should encompass core U.S. foreign-policy goals, dangerous threats to our nation’s security are emerging almost unnoticed. How Washington deals with such challenges could critically affect America’s role in the world and determine whether we will remain a true superpower. Read more: www.washingtontimes.com...





China is developing what could be seen as the ultimate such weapon, a real nightmare for the U.S. Navy. Since at least the mid-1990s, Beijing has been developing a highly advanced ballistic missile, the DF-21D, popularly dubbed “the carrier-killer.” On paper, such a missile could truly complicate Washington’s ability to move naval vessels as a hedge against China’s growing military might.

The carrier killer.

A BALLISTIC missile carrier killer.

That is as long range as it gets.

Clearly the US psyche is suffering a crisis. Not enough war making, not enough bombs, missiles, jets etc. Just not enough zipper heads.

It's not enough that the US spends more than the rest of the world combined. It's immaterial that BO gets the cut list from military brass. No.

It's not enough to right the wrong imparted on the American ego.

I'm sure the Nazis were aware that the majority of the world was against them. I'm sure the military brass was prepared to fight he entire world if it came down to it. Evildoers indeed.
