Obama said this:
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set,” he said Wednesday. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”
“People of all ages, stations, and skills will be asked to serve.”
Let’s think on this…
“As strong”…. will it have guns, machine guns, and tanks? an Air Force? Artillery? That is called an Army, not “civilian”. What the hell does he mean by “strong”?
“Just as well funded”… With our current defense budget at around $500 billion. Does this mean that Obama will match it – spending $1 TRILLION dollars on national security? Or will he split the old defense budget in 1/2? To do what he says, he either has to spend AT LEAST $1 TRILLION, or cut the current defense budget in 1/2.
“asked to serve”… how deliciously ambiguous. “asked” or “told”? Will a “lottery” be involved? Will neighborhood watchers be asked to recommend “volunteers”?
Obama and the people who have influenced him scare me.
