Retired U.S. general sounds the alarm, warns Biden administration deliberately weakening our military

USA- While Russia flexes its muscles in Ukraine and China saber rattles over Taiwan, the United States military has devolved into an experiment into wokeness.

This all came after the debacle during last year’s withdrawal from Afghanistan. Both countries had to have seen the complete ineptness of the Biden administration in handling a 20-year-old conflict and clearly both have been emboldened. They got the message loud and clear.

Now, the Epoch Times is reporting that a recent panel discussion about America’s role on the world stage led to a question from Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC) during the event held at the Pray Vote Stand Summit in Atlanta hosted by FRC Action, the legislative arm  of the Family Research Council.

“ I think that will go down in history as the worst foreign policy failure in U.S. history. Every decision that was made was wrong,” said Lt. General (Ret.) William Boykin, executive vice president at the FRC.

“What did that say to the rest of the world? IT said that we have weak leadership. And you have to ask yourself, why did Vladimir Putin refrain from attacking Ukraine during the Trump administration? And then he went in with barrels blazing, under the Biden administration, and I will tell you, I think a lot of that goes back to the weakness that people—both our adversaries and our friends—recognized in the Biden administration.”

A number of other countries have also come aware of the administration’s weakness and indecisiveness on a number of issues, Boykin continued, aside from how the U.S. exited Afghanistan.

In particular, Boykin focused on Biden’s approach to the Paris climate accords and the attempt to give Iran a pathway to nuclear weapons through the previously named Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“What’s the value to the United States? And what’s the value to our allies, to put Iran on a pathway to nuclear warheads,” Boykin continued.

“I think we’re going to continue to see the consequences of not only the pullout of Afghanistan, but stupid decisions that have been made by the administration, one of which is our president shut down our pipeline, and then turned around and went to the Saudis.”

Boykin reminded the audience of the fact that on September 11, 2001, it was a number of Saudis who engaged in the attack on America and also the fact that Saudi Arabia is a major sponsor of terrorism. He noted that despite all of this, Biden crawled on his hands and knees to Saudi Arabia, as well as (initially) Russia to beg for oil after he eviscerated U.S. oil production.

“Does that make sense to anybody? It’s the most foolish thing,” he said.

“They see that kind of decision making, and they see us as being weak, and they see this as a time when they can take advantage of us.”

More disturbing, Boykin doesn’t believe the view of a weak American military is only a perception among the international community and instead believes some of this may be a deliberate effort on behalf of the Biden administration to purposefully weaken the American military.

He cited several examples, including the removal of servicemembers who refused to get the COVID jab, as well as being more focused on critical race theory and “inclusion” tolerance instead of focusing on how to keep our armed forces in a state of readiness for war.

“All of these things that have nothing to do with the mission and everything to do with the agenda of the administration—you are doing them an injustice and ultimately you’re going to pay the price for that,” Boykin said.

“At the same time, they’re turning around and writing to old generals like me, saying, ‘We need help recruiting because we just can’t recruit enough people.’ Well, let me explain to you how this thing of mathematics works. You get rid of them all, and then those who are watching from the outside say, ‘I don’t want a part of that.’ And those on the inside, many of them leave on their own.”

Boykin laid the blame for much of this on former President Barack Obama, noting that much of the military leadership currently in place got started under the former president.

“If they’re compromised—if they lack focus, the question we need to ask as a nation is, who’s mentoring the next generation of leaders? Who’s bringing up the warrior leaders for the future? The answer is, nobody,” he said.

He noted that was the “hardest thing to fix” in order to restore “the Navy, and the Army, and Air Force and the Marine Corps.”

Perkins then circled over to the threat from China and asked panelist Gordon Chang, author of “The Coming Collapse of China,’ how China views the current administration.

“We don’t have to speculate. The Communist Party propaganda was very clear,” Chang said.

On the very day that Kabul fell to the Taliban, Chinese newspapers announced that China would indeed invade Taiwan at some point, making the point that Taiwan would face the same fate as Afghanistan and would fall within hours with zero support from the U.S.

“What they saw in Afghanistan confirmed in their minds, their long narrative, that the United States was in terminal decline,” he said.

While Chang doesn’t personally believe that the U.S. is in decline, he said that is how our primary adversary, China, feels about us after the bungled Afghanistan exit, he said.

“The one thing that I’m most concerned about is that there will be some sort of accident in the international airspace,” Chang said, speculating that such an incident could start a war.

“We have seen incredibly dangerous aerial maneuvering on the part of the Chinese. They almost brought down an Australian reconnaissance aircraft on May 26 because the Chinese jet flew so close to it and released flares. That’s something that’s never been done before, and I’m afraid that is going to be the trigger of war in East Asia.”

“Not only is China involved in the world’s  fastest military buildup since the Second World War. It is preparing the Chinese citizens for war,” Chang continued. “That mobilization of citizens is an ominous sign.”

But fear not America. Biden and his administration say the greatest threat to our national security are elderly people wearing red MAGA hats and a guy wearing a Viking hat and entering the Capitol. China? Pffft.
