"Due to reduced training and maintenance, almost all of our non-deployed ships and aviation squadrons are soon going to be less than fully mission capable and not certified for major combat operations. That's about two-thirds of the fleet,"


Are you saying that the units already on deployment aren't ready to put ordnance on target? If so, the Navy has far bigger problems than a sequester.

It'll be interesting to see where all those anti-war protestors who were around 9-10 years ago will be for this one.

My guess is, you'll be able to hear a pin drop.

Hasn't been a Cindy Sheehan sighting since Nov 2008. But I blame the media more than Cindy for both her initial fame and speedy removal from the public eye.

We couldn't go to war if we wanted to. Sequestration just gutted the Navy, readiness is the worst it's been since the 70s. You'd want at least two carrier air groups - and they're just not prepared.


The Obama Admin is probably willing to trade military lives in exchange for the decreased readiness. I've never gotten the impression that this administration is terribly concerned about the political consequences of this kind of policy.

There is a lot of money and power to be gained through perpetual war.

Let's rephrase for accuracy, "The perfect way to divert from bombing nations is to unleash multiple scandals at once which tells BHO that he must follow along on Syria or else!!!"

Units in the field are mission capable. It's the ones that have just come home, or were preparing for deployment that are in trouble. They simply aren't getting the training time they need to maintain their skills, or prepare for the next round overseas.
