F. Michael Maloof, staff writer for WND and G2Bulletin, is a former senior security policy analyst in the office of the secretary of defense.
WASHINGTON – As if to dramatically illustrate repeated claims top generals have made to WND of a purge of senior officers and a degradation of military readiness under President Obama’s leadership, stunning testimony at a recent Senate committee hearing shows America may soon be unable to fight and win a war.
The Air Force is having problems retaining its pilots, even though they are being offered big bonuses to remain, senators learned at the Nov. 7 Senate Armed Services Committee hearing.
The problem appears to be partly from sequestration, which has imposed budget limitations on pilots’ ability to get in both the requisite flying time and the training needed to fly the next generation of aircraft, according to Air Force Secretary Eric Fanning.
He expressed grave concern about the trend toward budget cutbacks.
Likewise, at a recent Defense One Summit in Washington, Fanning warned that “we’re going to have flying hour issues for the foreseeable future,” a reference to the reality that pilots must fly a certain number of hours to maintain their ratings on various aircraft.
But Fanning said each U.S. squadron will be subject to rolling groundings of two to three months.
However, for the pilots, the issue isn’t just financial, as they have been offered major cash bonuses as an incentive to stay.
However, Fanning said,“pilots aren’t taking them.”
Instead, he said, pilots want to fly and are looking to the private sector where the retirement of commercial pilots is opening new opportunities.
Sequestration, those mandatory percentage cuts set up by President Obama and implemented when Congress failed to address cuts in other areas, has not only cut back operations, but necessary investment in new-generation aircraft.
That’s happening even as older aircraft are being relegated to retirement.
The Air Force has begun to mothball its B-52 bomber fleet, whose aircraft are older than the pilots who fly them.
“That will have a worse effect on morale,” Fanning said.“It’s not just compensation that keeps people in the military. It’s mission.”
All of this uncertainty is having a negative effect, said Fanning.
“Morale is really as bad as I’ve seen it on the civilian side and the uniformed side,” Fanning said.“But it is better than you think it is, and better than we deserve it to be, because we’ve got an amazing mission.”
Sequestration cuts aren’t limited to the Air Force.
The Army is shrinking the number of troops to 380,000. Gen. Raymond Odierno, Army chief of staff, in the same Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, expressed particular concern that force reductions have greatly affected its readiness capability between 2014-2017.
The Marine Corps will be limited to 150,000 troops.
The Navy will be cut three carriers, after already having reduced the number of capital ships to some 260, down from the 600 reached at the peak of the Reagan administration.
New Navy flag officers and executives have been told to begin more cuts under sequestration, in which some 3,000 temporary civilian personnel will be laid off, and base operations will be reduced.
more on this to come
World Net Daily (WND) is as big a hoax as The Onion dumbazz__Maloof is on record admitting that they make sht up.

I think I'll screenshot your post and send it to Glenda Beck c/o The Blaze.

You're truly a moron.

Money talks...and MAN-MADE global warming is phoney...

“The high cost of coastal homes in New York and Los Angeles is on its own a market signal that the alleged threat of global warming is well overdone. Even worse for those who buy into the theory of global warming that says a planetary crack-up is inevitable absent a substantial human response, is that Malibu, Manhattan and the Hamptons are filled with the very people who, when asked if they believe in the global warming theory, would most likely say yes. Ok, so Ted Danson owns in Martha’s Vineyard, noted environmental activist Laurie David does too, and then Al Gore is known to have purchased a coastal palazzo in Montecito, CA. What this tells us is that even global warming’s most famous advocates don’t believe very deeply in their own activism. To believe the warmists we’re sitting idle as Rome supposedly burns, but as evidenced by the popularity of coastal property among warmists and non-warmists alike, the market says the ‘science’ predicting catastrophe is utter nonsense.”

I'm just wondering why you idiots are pretending anyone gives a shit. Must be some kind of conspiracy is all I can come up with.
Besides, it's common knowledge Obama is part of the Al Qaeda terrorist network. Nobody would expect anyone who honorably served their country to do that.
Well, I've noticed that you don't notice anything that goes counter to your perception of things. Rethugs on here are the ones who brought up Obama's lack of military service. You are an idiot if you think that lunacy is something that would have been addressed by a Democrat. The fact that you view those who speak out against Rethug character attacks as "clowns" speaks volumes about your lack of a moral compass.

Another incredibly ignorant statement by an incredibly ignorant poster.

Voter registration fraud "harmless?"

Tell that to politicians who have lost elections decided by a margin of less than 1 vote in 1000 (a margin of victory of less than 0.1%).

People are imprisoned for voter fraud. You, sir, are a putz of the highest order.
