When the world dials 9-1-1, they may well want to call someone other than the Globalist Americanized Empire (GAE). It’s not that Joe Biden and Lindsay Graham aren’t filled with a bipartisan will. They are each glad to expend somebody else’s children on behalf of a country where the people wouldn’t pee on the United States if they saw it on fire.
The real question revolves around why you would call a first responder that doesn’t have enough warm bodies to overwhelmingly respond. CNN takes a hiatus from regime propaganda to describe just how poorly the US Armed Forces are performing in recruiting the next cohort.
The US Army is now projecting that for the next two years it will massively fail to recruit as many troops as it hoped, falling short by nearly 40,000 new recruits, according to the latest estimates and testimony from the Army’s second highest leader.
“We’ve got unprecedented challenges with both a post-Covid-19 environment and labor market, but also private competition with private companies that have changed their incentives over time,” General Joseph Martin, vice chief of staff of the Army, told the House Armed Services readiness subcommittee on Tuesday.
The Army is projecting it likely will fall short of its fiscal year 2022 recruiting goal by as many as 10,000 troops and could miss the fiscal year 2023 recruiting goal by as much as 28,000 troops, according to Army estimates.
Whenever a person whines about COVID-19 to excuse some failure still dragging into AD 2022, you are in the presence of a leadership vaccuum that may require a spacesuit to successfully survive. Another problem the Army faces involves the institutional unwillingness to pay a living wage. Junior Enlisted Personnel often end up impoverished in the service of Amerika. Sergeant Major of The Army, Michael Griston offers a brilliant back-up plan for the struggling, young PFC.
“With inflation affecting everything from gas prices to groceries to rent, some Soldiers and their families are finding it harder to get by on the budgets they’ve set and used before,” the written guidance from Grinston reads. “SNAP is a U.S. government program that provides benefits to eligible low-income individuals and families via an electronic benefits transfer card that can be used like a debit card to purchase eligible food in authorized retail food stores. Service members and their families may be eligible.”
If this doesn’t make Pvt Pyle re-enlist for the benefits, the US Army Recruiting Command is opening Uncle Sam’s wallet to recruit for job descriptions they can’t fill. The Quick Ship bonus has been boosted from $35K to $40K. Throw in two years of National Guard Time after two years Active Component, and the Army will offer up to $50K. It should appear somewhat enticing.
Yet then again, Amerika’s Army has gone all in on the wokeness. People with a certain pride don’t appreciate being told they have to unlearn their systemic bias and not walk around feeling genuinely good about themselves. After about three or four mandatory trainings on White Supremacist tendencies that may or may not manifest everytime they choose what music to listen or what to order at a restaurant, these people are ready to tell Uncle Sam to take his increasingly valueless $50K and use it to wipe something up. A genuinely rational altruist will serve or even bargain with that which seeks his demise.
The military traditionally appeals to young, masculine, and overwhelmingly heterosexual males. They are not eager to join up with the few, the proud, the cork-suckers. Wokeness kills the aesthetic and philosophical appeal a military life offers it’s most common and loyal customers.
All of these previous reasons, the COVID-19 dislocations, the poor pay, the anti-White and anti-hetero institutional hatred perhaps pale in response to what really makes traditionalist Amerikans now distrust and disrespect the US Military. We lost the republic and are now just another dead soul empire. An empire that no longer even fights to actually conquer and win.
What did Iraq, Afghanistan, the covert support for Ukraine, or any other recent Amerikan cluster-gaggle serve? They served a few mega-corporations an unlimited buffet of aggregate demand and justified more big government wealth transfer. It made politicians look big and tough while it made the kid next door good and dead. They generated a cadre of Yes-Man generals with no leadership skill beyond peddling the amoral and soulless company line (new for 2022: while obese and wearing dresses, lipstick, pantyhose, and eyeliner).
Amerika will eventually understand this. No, that won’t make them back off the woke. This is not politically possible in today’s Amerikan Empire. No, they won’t fix the economy. The Sergeant Major of the Army tells the enlisted that SNAP is a part of the benefits package. The only thing that fills the thinning ranks is conscription. This will have to come back. Our declining nation will not be able to offer enough disgusted and offended young men enough in bribe money to put up with the current Amerikan version of the US Army.
