WHEN THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF DOESN’T CARE ABOUT YOU OR YOUR SACRIFICES, MORALE SUFFERS: Army morale low despite 6-year, $287M optimism program. You know what helps morale? An Army that fights and wins. You know what doesn’t? A $287 million 6-year “optimism” program. An army overrun with sociology grads, “resiliency directorates,” diversity officers, and the like is not an army that’s focused on fighting and winning.

UPDATE: From the comments:

Let’s see – the military was sent into a hell hole to fight with their hands tied behind their backs, and then were pulled out so they could watch the areas they conquered by loss of their friends be over-run by maggot terrorists while the politicians crowed and crowed. And the politicians wonder why the soldier’s morale is low?

The world is run by idiots that can’t remember what happened yesterday.
