Guess there is peace and serenity in the world… Soldiers getting pink slips while deployed.
There is stupid and then there is simply absurd. The Obama administration is sending pink slips to troops while they’re serving in a war zone.
I remember being a young captain returning home after Operation Desert Shield/Storm and the decision was made to conduct a RIF (Reduction in Force). Officers were given a choice to voluntarily separate, which many did, or be involuntarily separated, based on performance reviews. But this decision came after the combat operation had ceased.
Leave it to the Obama administration to do something so amazingly dumb it takes your breath away.
According to the New York Post, “In a stunning display of callousness, the Defense Department has announced that thousands of soldiers — many serving as commanding officers in Afghanistan — will be notified in the coming weeks that their service to the country is no longer needed. Last week, more than 1,100 Army captains — the men and women who know best how to fight this enemy because they have experienced multiple deployments — were told they’ll be retired from the Army.”
Let’s just review what’s going in the world right now, shall we?
- Islamic State (IS -the terror artists formerly known as ISIS) is creating a caliphate in the heart of the Middle East.
- Israel is locked in combat with Hamas.
- Iran is marching towards regional hegemony and nuclear capability.
- Russia is seeking to expand its domain.
- China is threatening our allies in the Pacific Rim.
