Obama Eliminates Breakfast for US Troops in Afghanistan, Stuffs Own Face.... Moochelle dines on lobster, caviar, and truffles.

One way of getting the military to rise up and maybe execute a military coup (?) is to starve them out in the field.

Obama Eliminates Breakfast for US Troops in Afghanistan, Stuffs Own Face

 

If only American soldiers in Afghanistan were unemployed Democratic voters in Chicago, then they might be getting three square meals a day from the government.

 

But the military is the one place that Obama feels comfortable slashing expenses. While spending at an uncontrollable rate unseen since the last days of the Roman Empire in every other area, Obama has been cutting “waste” in the military like 20,000 Marines, Tricare healthcare for veterans and breakfast for soldiers serving in areas where he would only venture accompanied by heavy firepower.

Warren Buffett and other crony capitalists can pig out on Obama’s trillion dollar deficits. As for the troops. Let them ear MRE’s.

The Army has stopped serving cooked breakfasts to some of the U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan as part of its drawdown, a move that prompted troops to write home asking their families and friends to send care packages with cereal, breakfast bars and other foods.

The Army told the Washington Guardian the current cutbacks began Jan. 1, and affect about 2,700 soldiers deployed in forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan.

The Washington Guardian reported earlier this month that the current budget crisis in Congress prompted Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to write a memo order preparations for sweeping budget cuts across all military programs to begin as early as next month.

Officials stressed other comforts at the forward operating bases may also soon be reduced, such as laundry and recreation, as officials look for other ways to reduce the American footprint in advance of departing the country.

They said the meal cutbacks are currently affecting forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan and not affecting the main American bases in Kabul and Kandahar.

Exit questions. How many cooked breakfasts for soldiers would Obama’s 20 million dollar Hawaii vacations and the 1.4 billion that his clan’s non-stop partying buy?

 

While American soldiers go hungry, here is what Obama and his corrupt cronies had for their inaugural lunch.

First Course: Steamed Lobster with New England Clam Chowder Sauce, Sautéed Spinach, Sweet Potato Hay Second Course: Hickory-Grilled Bison with Red Potato Horseradish Cake, Butternut Squash Purée, Baby Golden Beets and Green Beans, Strawberry Preserve and Red Cabbage Third Course: Hudson Valley Apple Pie with Sour Cream Ice Cream, Artisan Cheeses Wines: Tierce Finger Lakes Dry Riesling (2010), Korbel Natural, Special Inaugural Cuvée California Champagne, Bedell Cellars Merlot (2009)

Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were humanitarian social workers compare to Barack and Michelle Obama.

UPDATE: Here are some comments by current and former service members

Gee

How outrageous – when I was in the US Army – it was a requirement that they provide 3 hot meals a day unless in field. Failure to provide that was grounds for an immediate honorable discharge.

I’m over here in Afghanistan right now and it’s no “crock”. I’m on Bagram and they just stopped hot breakfasts here as of 1 Feb. This isn’t about winning or losing it’s about what the current President is doing against the country he is supposed to support.

I’m glad I got out when I did. There were two things in Afghanastan worth looking forward to. Going Home, and hot meals. Now the hot meals were not exactly gourmet, but they got you through the day.

Coach

When I ran a mess hall it was stressed to us to do the very best job possible because meals are part of a soliders pay. This is a violation of soliders’ rights. Where is Congress on this?

First off as a vet, I will tell you flat out no one serving active duty is going hungry. That accusation is just ridiculous in its face. Second I think it is really nasty that the government has cut back on giving active duty troops a warm breakfast but military is typically one disappointment after another. Be that disappointment about available duty stations, watch rotations, time allowed for liberty or just a phone call home, and so on. So as a veteran, I deeply sympathize but this is really just one more disappointment from bureaucrats, republican or democrats, who have no idea what it’s like to be deployed. This is however an awesome opportunity for all those who say they support the troops, to put their money where their mouth is by sending care packages. Here are a few trustworthy links:

Obama's Tactic: Shock and Awe

By J. Robert Smith

http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/03/obamas_tactic_shock_and_awe....

As a retired Marine, I will say this is the one place the bureaucrats  will pay deeply.  I have no respect for any veteran who will say this is simply one more great disappointment, with that attitude, we might as well accept anything they say or do.

    The former Cook has it exactly right, the meals served are indeed part of every Marine and Soldier's pay, I have had that hammered into me time and again, while complaining getting less than minimum wage, and living without privacy, and learning how to "suck it up".

    The fact is, National defense is the second purpose of government, and no rational people would have less than the best standing on the gates.  This is a total B.S. political excuse for complete failure in their own duties.  No one gets voted into office by deployed forces because they never get their ballots till after the election's over.

    This is simply another example where the politicians forget the fact some of their duties really do matter, and are not just optional.  "Only a moral and religious people are capable of such a form of government, any other require a tyrant to drive them to do their duties."  We are not, and cannot expect to select such sort to represent us, or indeed could they come out of such a society as we have allowed ours to become.

I must admit when I first saw that "John McClain" had responded to this article, I thought Sen. John McCain from Arizona. Gunney, thank you for your service. John Klay PO-2 U.S. Navy '60 - '63

One day the military will have had enough of what the fraud in the White House is doing and they will oust him from office. He has no power without the military, just like every other dictator in the world. Seven Days In May doesn't seem so unreal nowadays.

Bart: Just like Rome. The "emperor" did not respect them and let all kinds of people in and next, well its history.

Rome was taken down from within. You cannot disrespect the military and "rule", like hussein is doing.

God bless our military.

We shouldn't equate this with budget cuts.  As we pull out of Afghanistan these actions and much more should be expected.  Not very often a nation just picks up and leaves in a war zone.  I expect lots of sacrifices for our troops and these will get more severe until last troops are pulled out.  In the end it will be a bare essentials.  My guess is all the gyms, air conditioners, rec centers, TVs, movies, internet cafes, mess halls, shower trailers, will be removed long before the troops leave.  This is a vulnerable time. The Soviets suffered heavy casualties when they left.

You are right...as we pull out we consume a lot of supplies.  I would bet that its more cost effective to leave MRE's there than to ship them back to the US.  So what would we do?  We would use them to feed with.  Class A rats are fresh and shipped in daily, so we cut back on ordering and consume MRE's...I see nothing wrong with this at all in fact its the SMART way to do business.  Costs too much to ship back, and why leave them there for them to eat...

1st  cut the whores in Washington's fee, no more parties or using the private airplanes defund the Czars for starts never mind the Military

This AM Glenn Beck had a caller to his show bring this to Glenn's attention.  He was astounded and said he will get on it and if true then holy hell will break -- this is unacceptable.

Write your congress rep and demand an answer.

I am.

I ALREADY know what will happen, said it once already, will say it again.

Some Congress Critter will make a stink, fine, then bring back the A rats, take the MRE's and give them to the BAD GUYS...DUH, lets wake up folks, few on here have more disdain for Bammy than I do.  Every time a soldier is wounded or killed it feels like a bullet to my gut.  I have been following the body politic longer than most of you have been alive, I have paid my dues to Capitol Hill and the halls of Congress and the Pentagon, I have family members in Congress now (as elected officials).  I know more about it than I want to but as long as I can pull air into my lungs I will keep up the good fight for my country.

But getting side tracked on issues that I am not sure are real, ain't no one going hungry and leaving millions and billions of dollars of supplies and equipment behind has been going on since WWII and EVERY time we leave stuff behind then the military gets accused of more waste, why didn't bring it back, burn it anything but leave it for the bad guys.  I remember the big flap over the stuff we left behind after Vietnam.  THis is a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation.  TON of stuff we can hang Bammy and that band of radical communists on, but I do not think this is one of them and dam sure not worth falling on your sword on...

Why, this can't be. Moochelle is the service mans best friend. I hope the two of them choke on the lobster.
