Barack Obama is doing his best to put Americans in danger before he leaves office on January 20.
He sent US Special Forces to the Russian border to continue taunting Vladamir Putin, letting in an increased flow of illegals in the country, and is going to transfer terrorists from Guantanamo Bay, just to name a few of his antics.
Now he is putting us at risk by decreasing our military presence in a shocking move that we have not seen since World War II! Let that sink in for a moment.
From Fox News:
For the next week, not only will there be no U.S. Navy aircraft carrier in the Middle East, but there will be no American aircraft carriers deployed at sea anywhere else in the world, despite a host of worldwide threats facing the United States.
The carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower and her strike group returned to Norfolk, Va., Friday following a seven-month deployment. The Ike launched hundreds of airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria from both the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf.
Two destroyers in the Ike’s strike group also saw combat. The USS Nitze and USS Mason were attacked in the Red Sea when Iranian backed Houthi forces in Yemen launched cruise missiles, which were intercepted by the Mason. A retaliatory strike by the Nitze destroyed the radar installations in Yemen in October.
The Eisenhower’s replacement carrier, the USS George H.W. Bush, was delayed by more than six months in the shipyards and will not be able to replace the Ike until early next year, according to Navy officials.
This will leave our troops around the world unprotected, and you can be sure that our enemies know that we are defenseless. Thanks, Obama!
