While China, Iran, Russia, and other countries are building up their military strength, utilizing technology that has turned the US military into sitting ducks, flexing their military and nuclear capability might, the US is dismantling their military piece by piece, military leader by military leader, dollar by dollar, along with our nuclear stockpiles, and pouring more and more resources into the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), stockpiling weapons, ammo, trying to federalize the local law enforcement agencies, and declaring American citizens a "greater threat" than terror groups such as ISIS.
WEAKENING AMERICA AND DISMANTLING THE US MILITARY
Hundreds of military leaders have been removed over the last 6 years, commanding Generals, commanding Admirals, Naval officers, Air Force Majors, Army generals and more... the list is large and can be found over at The Last Great Stand, who has compiled the names in one place.
According to the US Department of State in an April 2014 transparency report, "As of September 2013, the U.S. stockpile of nuclear warheads consisted of 4,804 warheads. This number represents an 85 percent reduction in the stockpile from its maximum (31,255) at the end of fiscal year 1967, and a 78 percent reduction from its level (22,217) when the Berlin Wall fell in late 1989." This includes warhead dismantlement, along with non-strategic nuclear weapons, active and inactive warheads.
In January 2015 it was reported that "reckless" cuts to military spending leaves America "vulnerable." Within that report by The Observer we see the following statement "Air supremacy in doubt; General unsure US can win a war; 'In a year we will only be able to deploy two carrier groups worldwide, down from three currently, and five just a year ago'."
A series of joint naval drills between the United States and France recently didn't quite turn out the way the US, no doubt, expected. The practice scenario ended with the French nuclear submarine that was acting the part of an enemy ship "sinking" the American aircraft carrier and most of its escort.
CHINA, RUSSIA, IRAN STRENGTHENING MILITARY DOMINANCE
While the US has been busy surrendering our position of military dominance, cutting defense spending, destroying our nuclear stockpiles and purging the military of top leadership, countries such as China, Russia, Iran and others are busying strengthening theirs.
Russia's new geopolitical, economic and military best friend, China, is also strengthening their military with recent announcements including the "new DF-31 for multiple warheads," according to a US official, and CNN reports that "China to narrow gap with U.S. by increasing military spending."
With the US basically surrendering economic and military dominance, more and more each year, it is noteworthy to keep in mind the obvious preparations that have been made over the course of the last few years, for outright war against it's own citizens.
As of September 2014, reports showed that 40 percent of "used" US military equipment had been "given" to local and state police departments within the United States as part of the controversial Defense Department’s 1033 program, with quite a few questions raised about whether "local police across America should have access to the same equipment used on battlefields in Afghanistan and Iraq," in what many see as the militarization of local and state law enforcement agencies.
According to Executive Gov, Federal Times and others, while decreasing military spending recklessly, the US is increasing Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding, every year, with Obama having requested an additional $3.7 billion in DHS funding for the 2016 fiscal year. The official claim is the money would go towards "more border agents, fund anti-terrorism efforts and beef up its cyber security programs," but recent reports indicate the additional DHS "targets" are not terror groups, nor preventing illegal immigration. US Gov't agencies has also been stockpiling weapons and ammo.
Perhaps one of the most disturbing, visual examples of the type of "targets" our militarized police are being trained to take out, comes from 2013 reports, where it was revealed that law enforcement agencies were using actual targets that represented the threat.... of "pregnant women," and "children."
The series contains seven targets in all, titled Pregnant Woman, Older Man 1, Older Man 2, Older Woman, Young Mother, Young Girl, and Little Brother. Each of the depicted subjects is armed.
After declaring targets, militarizing law enforcement agencies, waging propaganda war on Veterans, political opponents, those of religious faith, survivalists, preppers and other American citizens, we have the pièce de résistance with Barack Obama's newest brainstorm as he "Unveils Plan to Further Nationalize Local Police," to create his "National ObamaLaw Plan."
Looking through the aforementioned links, we see a very disturbing pattern of America surrendering across the globe, while preparing for war on US citizens.
