The firing of two nuclear commanders in a week adds to a body count that suggests we have either the most corrupt and incompetent general staff in history or our military is being reshaped for other purposes.

The Obama administration, which has fired no one over scandals such as its Fast and Furious Mexican gun-running operation, its criminal negligence in the terrorist attack on our Benghazi diplomatic mission, or the use of the IRS to target and intimidate political foes, seems to have a curious obsession lately about ethics and competence in the U.S. military.

Last week the Air Force's two-star general in charge of the units responsible for its 450 nuclear missiles was fired "due to a loss of trust and confidence in his leadership and judgment," an Air Force statement said.

Maj. Gen. Michael Carey had commanded the 20th Air Force, responsible for the three wings that maintain control of the 450 intercontinental ballistic missiles scattered in missile silos across the northern plains.

The statement added that the decision to relieve Carey was based on information from an inspector general investigation into Carey's alleged behavior during a temporary duty assignment, which is the military's term for business travel. It was said to have nothing to do with the operational readiness of the ICBM force or recent failed inspections of ICBM units.

Carey's removal comes on the heels of President Obama's personal removal of the No. 2 officer at U.S. Strategic Command, which among other things oversees the military's nuclear forces. Vice Adm. James Giardina had earlier been suspended from that command after a criminal probe into his potential use of counterfeit poker chips at an Iowa casino.

Granted, command of any portion of our nuclear forces is a tremendous responsibility that cannot be compromised by personal indiscretions.

But these and other moves come from an administration that has shown no great devotion to accountability while it has gutted the military, using it as the fall guy in both budget cuts and the sequestration process.

These are just two in a string of recent military firings.

Rear Adm. Chuck Gaouette, the former John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group commander, was relieved in October 2012 for swearing and allegedly making racially tinged comments that resulted in him being flown off an aircraft carrier deployed to the Arabian Gulf.

Suspicions are that Gaouette's firing by President Obama was due to this strike force commander disobeying orders when he ordered his forces on Sept. 11 to "assist and provide intelligence for" military forces ordered into action by U.S. Army General Carter Ham, who was then commander of the United States Africa Command, against terrorist forces attacking the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Ham was ordered to "stand down," an action the administration denies, and was also relieved of his post.

Gen. James Mattis, a Marine legend, was recently unceremoniously rushed out the door as commander of U.S. Central Command allegedly for questioning administration policy on Iran. A pair of two-star Afghan commanders, Maj. Gen. Mark Gurganus and Maj. Gen. Gregg Sturdevant, were relieved allegedly for failing to provide "proper force protection" against Taliban attackers, a curious charge in light of the administration's absurd rules of engagement.

Four U.S. generals in charge of running President Obama's war in Afghanistan were either forced to resign or saw their careers tainted by allegations of wrongdoing: Gen. David McKiernan, Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, Gen. David Petraeus and Gen. John Allen saw charges ranging from impertinence to infidelity.

President Abraham Lincoln was famous for firing his generals until he found the likes of Grant and Sherman, commanders ruthlessly committed to victory and supremacy over adversaries. Somehow we doubt President Obama has quite the same agenda.

AND...

Is Obama Creating a Martial-Law Ready Military?

http://tinyurl.com/kweeqtt

What kind of leader wants a military more loyal to himself than to the rule of law?

And why?

These are two questions to ponder when considering the strange happenings in the armed forces since Barack Obama took office....

It's for one reason...Obama wants drones who will carry out unlawful orders.
Seven Days in May is his biggest fear.

He seems to think he is immune to betrayal. Funny, not, all the betraying he's doing it must occur to him that he'll be getting it back in spades.

Just as the media is disproportionately liberal and Jewish, the military officers are disproportionately white, southern and evangelical Protestant, no matter how many Wesley Clarks are promoted by Peter Principle.

It's typical leftist operation.

I saw on Newsbusters a clip of a Luke Russert interview where he admitted that the media sees orthodox Christians and Jews to a lesser degree in a light that if it were Islam, would be seen as prejudiced.

It's always funny why the media which whines so much for diversity has so little of it in its employment practices. It's not just a political equation, of liberals, it's the liberal Jewish mentality that sees any kind of active Christianity to be thinly veiled fascism.

You guys must really be starting to get terrified. You do realize that all of Obama's diabolical schemes are going to have to come to fruition in the next three years, don't you? He is going to have to launch them in to action really soon in order to get anything accomplished. It's either going to get real exciting or you are going to look like real fools real quick. I wonder which one it will be.

Three years is plenty of time to do a lot of damage. Just ask FDR or LBJ.
WWII in Europe was essentially won by the United States in three years.
But as usual, you miss the point...Obama is eliminating his potential opposition. The kind of folks who might move on him as he continues to wipe his ass with the Constitution.

It doesn't take years.
When Paul von Hindenburg appointed Hitler as Chancellor, in a matter of days, Hitlerites took over Berlin, weeks the surrounding country and that year 1932 the Nazis were voted into power by the people. Years? I don't think so.
Why do you think comrade Oblamer has appointed socialist and communist czars behind the throne? Anyone with half a brain knows DHS is solidly in comrade Oblamer's camp. Comrade Oblamer has friends and sympathisers all around the nation in various positions.
Before the 1917-21 takeover of Czarist Russia, Lenin and his cronies were preparing starting in the 1890s. Comrade Trotsky was in America years before the Revolution and returned to St Petersburg, Russia, not Florida, with beaucoup American dollars.
Oblamer ain't that smart but his handlers, the powers that be, the real smarts, are smart enough to have everything in place BEFORE!!!
The house searching in the Boston area during the Tsarnaev fiasco was a trial run in ordering citizens out of their homes and into the streets on pretense of looking for D. Tsarnaev. It worked with the Massachusettsers, would it work with Ohioans? Same question I asked the Pike County, Kentucky people!
Would it work with Ohioans? My answer, with some yes, with some no!

I also heard that he is lining the walls of the Pentagon with aluminum foil so that they can't pick up the secret text messages between the Oval Office and the military commanders in the field.

I heard that Tsarnaev was actually working for the White House when he set off the bomb. The entire bombing was done so that they could stage the manhunt and lockdown the neighborhood as a dry run for December 2016 when Obama announces that he will not be leaving the White House in January 2017. That is why Dzhokhar was allowed to survive the initial police confrontation. His brother was going to survive as well but had panicked and told the Secret Service that he was going on Fox and Friends to spill the beans. It is also why the White House leaked to Glenn Beck fake visitation logs of the Saudi young man who was injured in the bombing in order to create a diversion away from the real plot. Oh, and Benghazi was staged to see if the military would follow a stand down order while Obama was asleep. The wheels are in motion people.

Obama thinks he can run off the military who swore to God to uphold the constitution.

Starve them, mistreat them, demonize them, kill off a few, send reinforcements after the battle ended, etc.

Remember they are volunteers, and Obama is going to make it so volunteering stops.

then his own army can force his way.

why do you think gun control is so critical?

Problem is that lots of people know a different definition for gun control.

hit exactly where you aim.

Nice try, poster 15 but I only am concerned about facts I know, not facts I heard. I have read enough of the posts on Columbus topix to know your post is a setup, you thinking I am a right wing kook but you are entirely wrong. I am not right wing nor left wing but I am an American Constitutional realist who deals in facts.
fact-I know Barry O was steeped in communist doctrine as a young child as his mother Stannie Dunham and her parents were all communists with friends such as Franklin Marshall Davis and good ol' Weatherman Bill Ayers.
There's a lot more FACTS where that came from!
