Skip to comments.'Something is very wrong': America's most powerful tool to counter China in dire straits 'The Navy is straining very badly because the Navy will be the first service and fight'

The U.S. Navy is overstretched, and if it doesn’t find a way to hold on to sailors, keep ships in good condition and develop a clear plan forward, America will lose the most powerful tool it has to deter China, experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
The Navy’s preparedness for a fight has crumbled in recent years from a series of issues with personnel and capabilities that likely stem from a failure to maintain a fleet of the right size and composition for the job of patrolling the world’s oceans and guarding the homeland, according to experts and watchdog reports. As Congress urges the service to maintain a larger fleet, the Navy is approaching the point where it will have to choose a path: fix its problems or cut down on its objectives, experts said.
“The United States counts on the Navy to advance U.S. influence, respond to crises and deter — and if necessary, defeat — adversary aggression. If the Navy does not swiftly address its deficiencies, one of its most important instruments of national power will become increasingly less relevant,” Timothy Walton, a senior fellow researching warfare and Indo-Pacific security at the Hudson Institute, told the DCNF.
The Navy received a fresh round of criticism in recent weeks for promoting a drag queen as a “digital ambassador,” which was first reported by the DCNF. Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville of Alabama said the incident showcased uniformed leaders’ obsession with woke priorities in an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal.

The Navy has it covered with their new recruiting tool - a drag queen sailor.
The Navy, any navy, will be the first casualty of the next World War.................
When you stop recruiting men and fail to provide a reason for men to protect that which they value, you end up failing to get a man’s job done.
Join the NEW Navy. Stho butch they'll thcare the enemieth panths off!
Until the US Navy hangs, literally hangs, the drag queens and people supporting them from a yard arm, they deserve to die.
A country led by faggots, perverts, and child molesters does not deserve to exist. The US has become an evil place
Worked for the DoD attached to the Navy for 31 years......IIRC around 15 years ago didn’t the Navy have a push to kick sailors out that didn’tmeet certain criteria?
If my time-line is accurate that was obama.
HE looks like ronna McDaniel
All the result of wokeists. I cant believe how far my Navy has fallen. All senior officers who have accepted the trans bs should be court-martialed.
since we are discovering that up to 20% of Gen Y claim to be sexually gay and gender-fluid, its a whole new market to be tapped by the Navy
They must think we all went completely crazy, maybe that scares them.
Only chance we have is attack while the enemy is ROTFL their collective asses off.
Clearly they didn’t hire enough drag queens for recruitment duty.
Maybe thrown in some pedos and flamboyant gays and then the Navy will be like it used to be.
At last count, there at least six other navies involved in keeping the east and South China Seas free from the Chinese navy in the instance of a war.
China has no chance
Roger that. NOT my dad’s, not my and not my daughter’s Navy. Let absurdity reign!
Damn the torpedoes—if the Chinese ever figure out they can sink our ships simply by mis-gendering the crew we’re sunk.
Not just the navy.
The entire military is the casualty of democrat policies. The military is not a priority and if the democrats could do it, they would defund all the military forces.
Democrat priorities are government programs to win the hearts and minds of the voters, by creating programs which everyone would want for free, especially the poor and minorities.
Democrats have not completely defunded the military because they don’t want to make it too obvious, but, slowly and surely, they are weakening our military/defense.
We are also getting the worst of the worse to lead our military, and in a way, that’s another way to defund the military, because, weak leaders are needed to create weak military or defense forces.
It’s happened every time democrats gain power, where the military ends up getting weaker.
The defense of America is the only branch of the government which the founders specifically said that the federal government must provide funding for, and every other federal program created since the founding, is either illegal or unexpected. The founders, if they were around today, would have been imprisoned for insurrectionist thinking.
