How Obama is Transforming America’s Military from Superpower to Paper Tiger

Barack Obama has made it clear that he thinks the world would be a better and more peaceful place if the United States were too weak to affect the course of events. Obama, along with Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, has slashed missile defense, dramatically reduced investment in future military technologies, and broken promises to our allies. In addition, Obama is transforming our military into a politically correct force that no one will want to join.

In this incisive Broadside, Jed Babbin analyzes Obama’s military strategy and shows how he has pursued a consistent course of action that defines him and his overriding objective – to reduce America from a superpower to a paper tiger. These are not the policies of a president who wants America to be strong, safe, and secure. But they are the policies that define Barack Obama.
