IMO the US Military is not prepared to go to full fledged war. Moral is a part of that unpreparedness. Not because the men and women aren’t willing and able but because the large and small equipment is substandard. We still have ships here in port in Norfolk and Sailors tell me they would not be able to leave port should war break out.
“All are in port at Naval Station Norfolk, Va., the world’s largest naval station. Knowledgeable sources stated that this breached a long standing military protocol in the Navy meant to avoid a massive enemy strike on major US forces. (U.S. Navy photo by Chief Mass Communication Specialist Ryan J. Courtade/Released).
This ordering of most of the Navy’s capitol ships into one place is unprecedented since Pearl Harbor !”
This picture was taken the February 2014 in Norfolk, Virginia. Obama ordered 5 nuclear carriers into harbor for “routine” (?) inspections. Heads of the Navy were flabbergasted by the directive but had to comply as it was a direct order from their Commander-in-Chief.
