This’n’That; March 20th; US Military in Europe

Should The U.S. Boost Military Numbers In Europe?
I vote yes!
Most of us should remember Ronaldus-Magnus and his instantly famous phrase:
Mister Gorbachev, tear down this wall,”
from the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin, FRG.
That was the beginning of the end of the ‘Cold War’ and it’s military manning requirements, primarily in Europe.

1970 Jeep M-151A2

In 1954~near the beginning of the ‘Cold War‘~Army manpower stood at 1,404,600-worldwide; Air Force manpower was 948,000; Navy manpower was 725,700; the Marine Corps manpower was 223,800.  The 1954 total uniformed military forces stood at 3,302,100, with a considerable percentage stationed in Europe.
Total U.S. uniformed military manpower in ten-year increments, 1954-2014:

  • 1954-3,302,100 [Cmdr in Chief-Eisenhower];
  • 1964-2,687,400 [Cmdr in Chief-Johnson];
  • 1974-2,162,000 [Cmdr in Chief-Nixon/Gerald Ford];
  • 1984-2,138,200 [Cmdr in Chief-Reagan];
  • 1994-1,610,500 [Cmdr in Chief-“Slick-Willie“];
  • 2004-1,426,800 [Cmdr in Chief-George W. Bush];
  • 2014-1,354,100 [Cmdr in Chief-“ClownPrinceobama].

From the end of World War II~1945~until the late 1980s, the United States had a great responsibility to the free world in her maintenance of a well trained, well equipped, uniformed military, ready-to-go at a moment’s notice.  The former Soviet Union was held in check by America’s substantial uniformed military coupled with massive, war-making weapons and machinery!
After the ‘Berlin Wall’ came down the Soviet Union disintegrated into Russia and several communist countries.  During the same period The United States instituted an ill-conceived plan to close U.S. military bases worldwide and reduce manpower requirements… just at the time Russia was beginning to demonstrate that it had grown “huge balls” and was flexing it’s political and military ‘testosterone levels’ around the world.

U.S. Military Bases in Germany, 2009

Speaking only of Europe, currently the United States military has four component commands and one sub-unified command:

  • Naval Forces Europe [NAVEUR] 44,500 personnel;
  • U.S. Army Europe [USAREUR] 26,800 personnel;
  • U.S. Air Forces Europe [USAFE] 25,600 personnel;
  • U.S. Marine Forces Europe [MARFOREUR] 1,500 personnel;
  • U.S. Special Operations Command Europe [SOCEUR] Manpower numbers are not widely disclosed.

This indicates there’s but 98,400 members of U.S. forces of all branches to defend Europe and the Eastern United States from the Russian hordes!!  We’ve already seen what an inept, inexperienced Cmdr in Chief~in”ClownPrinceobama~coupled with a severely undermanned, under equipped military is faced with… and is barely able has no desire to contain.

M-35A3, Year Unknown

In conclusion:  With a new President~Commander-in-Chief~at the helm, now is the time to open discussions with the major NATO countries of Europe and the Middle East with respect to opening previously closed military facilities, increasing manpower to staff said facilities.  With 28 NATO Member Nations, seems fairly simple to negotiate either added facilities or indigenous manpower, or both.  Reducing foreign aid to zero dollars will partially fund both manpower and facilities increases.  It would be far better to battleobama‘s buddies the muslim terrorists in/nearer their home countries than on U.S. soil.  Just a thought.
That’s all I got.

If President Trump were to listen to someone like me~with a great love of the military and it’s veterans~I would advise [pertaining to the unwarranted, unnecessaryobama military purge]:

  • Conduct an investigation into the conditions~if any~of the firing of ALL military men and women during the past EIGHT years;
  • Re-instate those cleared of any wrong-doing, who would like to continue their careers;
  • Those who prefer civilian lives, careers, award~REWARD~them with a pro-rated retirement pay, paid as if they’d retired prior to attaining retirement ‘tenure.’

That’s all I got.

“This ‘n’ That” Topics For October 7th

Obama Continues NON-Support For Military
    Ya know those Marines who stand at the “Vacation-One-Alpha” helicopter’s steps; those Air Force enlisted men and officers who stand at the “Vacation-One” 747’s steps, those guys?  For all their dedication, “Clown Prince” obama has~since the start of his rule~ROYALLY f*cked them and their kind.  He expects to “draw red lines in the sand” and continue to rattle America’s sabers and to do it with an underfunded, undermanned, underequipped air, sea and land military.  How does that go along with his oath-of-rule?!?
Beat’s the shit out’a me!”
    Each~and EVERY~year of his rule, the “Clown Prince” has reduced the military budget in some form-or-fashion… missile defense, military~but not civilian~manpower, benefits for both members and families, bases, ships, nearly the entire scope of what it takes to both defend the country and to fight EVIL muslim terrorism, worldwide!
The “Excuser-in-Chief”
    I’m thinkin’ the only worse negotiator than Secretary of State John-Heinz-Forbes-Heinz-Kerry is “Clown PrinceObama, his own self!!
  • “…no matter how provocative China is, it must be, according to obama, “engaged.” It may launch a devastating cyber attack against the Office of Personnel Management costing billions of dollars, or it may send fighter aircraft to harass U.S. aircraft over international waters days before the Washington summit. It may even build airstrips on disputed islands and challenge the freedom of navigation of U.S. and other ships. No matter.”
This, from a guy(?) who gives the citizenry all kind’a shit over every aspect of liberty and freedom in American life but is ready to welcome all kind’a shit from the very rulers who continually attack us!!  Wanna know why we~meaning the Ruling Class~allow this to happen?  Here’s the lopsided reasoning:
  • “… Ben Rhodes has said U.S. ties with China represent “the most consequential bilateral relationship in the world.” This is diplomatic code for the idea that China is so big and powerful that it can do pretty much what it wants.”
China seems to be another “too-big-to-fail” entity so we have to kiss their ass.  Yet another ‘oath-of-rule’ violation which also “beats the shit out’a me!”
 
A Shooting-a-day…
Seemingly, that’s the assumed statistic most prevalent in Rochester [N.Y.] daily life.  Hell, we sometimes have them at a ‘three-a-day’ rate!  Wouldn’t it be far more beneficial if “The Lovely Mayor [Lovely Warren]”~instead of blathering on about ‘community involvement’~UNHANDCUFFED the Rochester Police Department to do their job of crime prevention, apprehension.  Miz Mayor… not all the local thuggery are simply “wayward lil’ chill’uns!”  Your legacy should be as a tough, just, law enforcement-guided administration but will probably be as “a blathering do-nothing” administration.
[Opinion, no published reference]
Socialist, Socialism Not Welcome!
    The folks in Roseburg, Or., ain’t too happy to find “Clown Princeobama is planning to visit their town~ostensibly~to meet with the families of the recent shooting victims.   Roseburg‘s ‘powers-that-be’ say the “Clown Prince” ain’t welcome if he plans on politicizing the gathering with his wrong-headed push for more gun control!!
Here We Go Again….
    In the wake of the latest “mass shooting” Senator Harry Reid is calling for more loss of liberty and freedom involving the Second Amendment.
Reid Picking Nose
Reid is failing to understand that ALL the federal legislation on the books WOULD NOT HAVE PREVENTED the vast majority of mass shootings in the modern era, certainly not the Umpqua CC tragedy!  It was Reid‘s party that held control of the 101st Congress, [Senate: 55% demo; House: 57.7% demo]the same one that passed the maniacal, idiotic “Gun Free School Zones Act of 1990!!
    Far more logical would be to repeal said “Gun Free…. Act” and replace it with a requirement for prospective recipients of federal school aid be CONCEAL-CARRY LICENSED!!  This would have gone much farther in prevention than all the congressional blather we’re about to hear!!
That’s all I got.

NASCAR Expresses It’s ‘Love!’
    Yesterday (Sunday, November 20th) during their introductions, the Homestead-Miami Speedway crowd expressed their ‘love’ for the pretend princess and the pretend doctorMichelleEat’cher Veggiesowe-bama and JillDr of educationBiden are finally getting the message on how much their subjects actually love the vote-buying gimmicks they come up with!!  Depending on who you read, the pair were booed (American newspaper websites) or they were resoundingly booed (British newspaper websites)!!
     As with “Clown Prince ZERO-bama, the Narcissist,” the wives’ bullshit ain’t going over as big as it did during the ‘Campaign of Fluff!!’  The entire lot of fascists are beginning to realize how much the socio-fascist voter-base has deterioriated over the past two-years, plus!!  To that end–in order to preserved their ‘permanent vacation’ status–the wives are ‘hitting the stump‘ harder than they’ve ever done before; in Miami, beating the drum to convert active and retired military and their dependents into “good lil’ fascists“-ready to vote for the current “Clown!!”  The military–traditionally–overwhelmingly vote for the republicRATic candidate; the fascists must either have mass-conversions, or have the absentee ballots denied.  I don’t see it going well for the socio-fascist side!!
