During Obama’s sham of a presidency, there has been a sickening increase in the number of tragedies involving military aircraft. One of these tragedies happened on Jan. 14, when two CH-53E Sea Stallion helicopters crashed into each there during a training session off the Hawaiian coast. 12 Marines lost their lives.
The Washington Examiner dropped a bombshell this week when they revealed that the commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. Robert Neller, said these accidents happened because of the budget cuts implemented by the Obama administration. According to Conservative Tribune, these budget cuts limit the number of aircraft available for training and restrict the amount of hours pilots can spend training in existing aircraft.
This has not only led to a number of tragic accidents, but also to an armed force that may not be totally ready for combat scenarios.
“We track this very closely and the simple fact is we don’t have enough airplanes to meet training requirements for the entire force,” Neller said during a hearing on the 2017 budget request for the armed services.
Since there isn’t enough money, the budget cuts also led to less maintenance on aircraft.
“The real bill payer for underfunded readiness is lost lives. I think that helps bring it into context for all of us,” said Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, during his opening statement.
Over the last seven years, Obama has made it clear he has no respect for our military. He has done everything in his power to weaken our armed forces, sending them into combat underfunded, ill-equipped and unprepared.
