Obama Kills Tomahawk, Hellfire Missiles, Spends Millions on Green Energy

The world is looking very peaceful these days. What are the odds that we’ll need a Navy anyway? Cruise missiles are outdated like bayonets and horses.

Advanced technology involves promising Putin to be super extra flexible when he invades Poland while blowing the military budget on Green Energy.

Obama is seeking to abolish two highly successful missile programs that experts say has helped the U.S. Navy maintain military superiority for the past several decades.

The Tomahawk missile program—known as “the world’s most advanced cruise missile”—is set to be cut by $128 million under Obama’s fiscal year 2015 budget proposal and completely eliminated by fiscal year 2016, according to budget documents released by the Navy.

In addition to the monetary cuts to the program, the number of actual Tomahawk missiles acquired by the United States would drop significantly—from 196 last year to just 100 in 2015. The number will then drop to zero in 2016.

The Navy will also be forced to cancel its acquisition of the well-regarded and highly effective Hellfire missiles in 2015, according to Obama’s proposal.

At which point peace on earth will break out.

The U.S. Navy relied heavily on them during the 2011 military incursion into Libya, where some 220 Tomahawks were used during the fight.

Nearly 100 of these missiles are used each year on average, meaning that the sharp cuts will cause the Tomahawk stock to be completely depleted by around 2018. This is particularly concerning to defense experts because the Pentagon does not have a replacement missile ready to take the Tomahawk’s place.

“It doesn’t make sense,” said Seth Cropsey, director of the Hudson Institute’s Center for American Seapower. “This really moves the U.S. away from a position of influence and military dominance.”

It makes sense if you assume that destroying American influence and military dominance is the goal of the ideology that Obama follows. Why should he risk having American military power fall into the hands of a Republican?

Obama refuses to waste money on cruise missiles for the Navy, because he thinks that there are other more important things that the Navy ought to be doing.

Increase supports energy efficiency goals directed by the DoD Sustainability Plan to meet a 37.5% decrease in greenhouse gas emission by FY 2020. Initiatives reduce fossil fuel usage by improving energy efficiency and shifting to renewable energy such as biomass, hydropower, geothermal, wind, and solar.

What would the Navy be without solar panels and windmills?

    You were expecting something from our Comrade in Chief?

    • darnellecheri

      Our beloved Communist in Chief. I’ve witnessed – first-hand – what Socialism Communism does to a country and its people, and it renders them both into wastebaskets of mind and spirit. I never, ever dreamed I would see it encroaching into the vestiges of my own country. As been said before: “It is easy for a nation to become Socialist Communist, but very difficult to reverse the pattern.” We witnessed before our very eyes the purging of our military officials. The patterns of Communism do not change only our denial of it.

    While you’re at it Obama, why not just return the Navy to the Age of Fighting Sail. Four hundred gun, wind powered Man-of-Wars, that will really strike terror in the hearts of America’s enemies. I volunteer him for the position of Powder Monkey.

    Obama may live in the White House, but he is not a legitimate president. It doesn’t matter how many welfare cases, sodomites, Marxists, liberal kooks, and white-guilt sickies voted for him or how many times they did it.

  • Gee

    He just gave Ukraine $1 billion. That would fund all those missiles and have lots left over

  • Chris Gait

    If you want a revolution in a large, prosperous nation, what do you do? You impoverish it and cause people to hate the status quo. And what is the best way to do that, proven repeatedly, the classic example being Russia? You drag the country into a war in which it is sure to be bloodied and defeated, demoralize the troops and call on the war-weary citizens to rise up…then after they carry out your revolution for you…you kill the leaders of that ‘pink’ revolution and establish a regime of red terror. That’s what is going on. Enjoy your X-Boxes and your basketball bets while you can…and keep on voting for Social Democrats. Your children will bear the consequences of this insane reduction of key missile systems as well as all the rest. The History Channel is not history. Try opening an actually history book for once and then opening your eyes, America.

      NASA gutted for Muslim outreach and a report by them saying the U.S. will collapse unless Communism is implemented. Now with our disagreement with Russia, we still need them to get us to the Space Station since Obama cut the Shuttle.

      The Airborne Laser, the ultimate weapon since it strikes at the speed of light, was gutted by Obama. The plane, when deployed, could shoot down a missile seconds after it comes over the horizon which then blows up over the attackers own land.

      Obama lets Pakistan keep parts of the Osama raid helicopter.

      Obama lets Iran keep one of our most advanced drones and my suspicions was that since they got in one piece, a traitor directed over their airspace on purpose so China and Russia could have it in return for their nuclear technology and aid.

      Iran then negotiates a nuclear agreement with Kerry and it’s flawed from the beginning.

      Now the Tomahawks that can be used from hundreds of miles away instead of sending in planes which then need the Hellfire.

      But he will defend gays in the military with vigor! I know if I was in the shower and a gay man looked at me in a perverted way, I take action immediately and I bet I’d be the one to get into trouble. This will happen and probably already has so now they get their own showers and preferential treatment. Now women on the front lines?

      WTF is wrong with this man?

  • kasandra

    It doesn’t make sense? It’s positively insane. The Hellfire is our principal tactical anti-tank missile. So we’re not buying any more main battle tanks to fight tanks, and we’re not going to make any more Hellfires (the principal anti-tank armament of the AH-64 Apache so we don’t need them, either, I guess). So what will we fight tanks with? May as well retire most of the Ohio class subs, too, since many of them were converted to carry the Tomahawks instead of SLBMs pursuant to, I believe, the START I treaty. Many of our surface combatants also carry the Tomahawks so we won’t need them, either. Let’s just scrap it all. I guess John Lennon was right – War really is over if you want it.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      We won’t. That’s the point.

      Obama wants to leave while trashing the military to end the ‘problem’ of American military dominance.

      • kasandra

        I was being facetious. My point is that losing these missiles will also make a lot of the rest of our arsenal irrelevant. He might see American military dominance as a “problem.’ But there are over 300,000, 000 people here, and hundreds of millions of others around the world who don’t but will suffer because of the end of it. Wonder how they like his plans.

    • truebearing

      He cut the A-10 as well. It was another incredibly effective tank destroyer.

    As a general rule we should strive to keep troops off the ground in Muslim countries. After all these years it appears that Pentagon whiz-kids still haven’t figured out that an infidel army is at a disadvantage the moment they set foot in a Muslim country, no matter which side they have come to support. This why we have so-called green on blue killings.

    Instead of putting thousands of troops on the ground in whichever Muslim country is making life difficult for us at the moment, a much simpler American life saving and American dollar saving strategy is to just lob a few well placed Tomahawks and be done with it.

    • Softly Bob

      Nukes would really do the job. Why mess about scrubbing with sterilized cloths when you can pour down a whole bottle of bleach? I for one would not shed a tear if Afghanistan and Pakistan were flattened.
      Come to think of it, Mecca should be leveled too. It’s the only language that these goat-fiddlers understand!

  • ImBackBishes

    This has gone too far! Arrest this POS “president”, NOW!

  • Steeloak

    Thank god more level headed members of Congress have the first & last say on this. Obama can propose all the D.O.A. budgets he wants, but all spending originates in the house and I can assure you the money will be there for these programs.

    • kasandra

      I hope and pray you’re right. The fact that, with Russian troops massed on the border of Ukraine, the Iranians getting closer to a nuclear weapon on a daily basis, and the Chinese threatening our allies in the Pacific, our president thinks these proposed cuts and the proposed cuts to the Army and Marines announced a couple of weeks ago are good ideas, is very disturbing. We have an irresponsible, reality challenged, ideologue at the helm. That doesn’t bode well for any of us.

      • truebearing

        He knows what he is doing will weaken America and he is doing it on purpose, just like everything else he has done to ruin race relations, alienate allies, cancel missile defense projects, ruin health care, etc etc.

        If you look at the things Obama targets, they are always pivotal to one aspect or another of America’s strength. He tried to strangle the energy sector, and has succeeded when it comes to coal. He attacked the banks, the core of capitalism. He has gone after the military on a number of fronts, from intentionally destroying morale to cutting pay to imposing insane rules of engagement, to cutting essential and proven weapons. It is all strategic and according to plan.

  • truebearing

    This is treason. Acting as the Coward…er Commander-In-Chief, Obama is required to defend the US. Destroying our military capability is in effect, aiding and abetting not only one but all of our enemies. This comes on the heels of proposing we cut the A-10 from service.

    If one looks at what Obama wants to cut, it looks like a list handwritten by Putin, or perhaps Iran, maybe both. All of the weapons Obama wants to cut are highly effective and feared by the enemy. Notice, he isn’t bothering to cut “wasteful spending.” These are proven, battlefield tested and effective weapons…the kind Putin would want him to cut.

    If the US has no effective conventional forces, there is nothing that can stop Russia, China, Iran, or for that matter, the Azores, from marching unopposed to new conquests. It looks like Obama is taking his orders from Putin.

    Obama has to go, by any means necessary.

  • W.C. Taqiyya

    Obama, the grand saboteur. It can’t be repeated too often.

  • A Z

    I would like to see how Hiernonymous defends this Obama decision.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      With leading questions, reframing the narrative, arguing that there’s no reason to hang on to obsolete technology, etc…

      • A Z

        It is hard to believe that he was G2.

        • Drakken

          He spent too much time with the enemy and went native.

          • A Z

            That is consistent from his 8 years in Germany to his time as a FAO in the Middle East.

            There are good people in the Middle East. Yet somehow they are deficient be it in number or in political power. Hiernonymous judges Christians by a standard that he does not judge Muslims by. That is he judges Christianity by what a weighted average of its adherents do in practice not what the standard is.

            One can consider this a fair standard. but what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, but Heirnonymous never gets there.

            I am not happy with everything that Christians have done through the centuries. But on balance I think they are better than Muslims.

          • Drakken

            Yes he is quite good at shooting the messenger but doesn’t quite get there with the message. Well it is true what they say, those that can’t, teach and those who can, do.

          • A Z

            Actually he does teach in Florida I believe. Unless he telecommutes or drives more than an hour away, I believe I could find the campus.

            The Holy Land Foundation (& a whole bunch of other) was in Florida. It was former German soldiers that brought the 1st mosque to Munich in the 1950s.After WW1, the Hitler 30s and WW2 they were disillusioned with Christianity specifically and Western civ generally. So I have to wonder. More than that the specific city worries me. I have to wonder if he is married to a woman from the Middle East.

            Still unlike others he seems decent.There are no ad hominem attacks. Although if you mix it up with him and you lower the bar expect to catch barbs from his swift repartee. He is quick on his feet and very good with logic. Although he has made a great tu quoque mistake that you could have threaded a black hole through.

  • A Z

    ;) You nailed it!

  • T800

    “once is accidental,twice is coincidence,three times is enemy action.”
    It’s all part of his efforts to weaken the US economically,politically,and militarily.
    1.He’s blocked domestic energy production,he’s hindered our economy terribly.
    2.He’s insulted our allies and aided our enemies,like the Muslim Brotherhood.
    3.He’s weakened our military,both through the weak economy and by shutting down needed programs such as missile defense,F-22 program,signing New START,and so on.

    Comrade Obama IS the muslim Manchurian Candidate.

    There’s a reason why,post-college,Comrade Hussein traveled to Pakistan,of all places. it’s not because he was a Christian. There’s a reason why Comrade Hussein was aided in getting into college by Saudi money and influence.

  • herb benty

    Notice Russia and China continue to build UP their Military, while Obama denudes ours. American industrial might stopped Hitler and Imperial Japan. Solar panels and windmills invite the enemy in. Russia, China, Islam, NK etc., etc are starting to salivate and grin. Obama is a clear and present danger. The hubris and arrogance of unilateral disarmament will fully explain what certainly follows.
