That didn't take long.
Seven months and what was a feared fighting force is back to Gerald Ford days.
I wish I could tell you this was a shock to me but it isn't. The purge of DOD people began before Biden took office. I have friends who were former civil service and in "affiliated" roles. In theory civil service people are very well-protected against political foibles. In reality, only so much -- if you're too close to retirement, for example, you can be forced out that way through a mandatory separation even though you can't be "fired", and you had a few years left. Several people I know had exactly that done to them.
The publicly-visible military "realignment", where anyone who wasn't a Democrat party supporter was basically deemed a potential terrorist and security threat, was even worse. Critical race "education" seminars and mandatory training, the putting of whatever particular type of flag you wave being in front of the only one that should matter (that being Old Glory, of course) and more was enough to make you want to puke.
I doubt very much Joe Biden has enough going on upstairs to contemplate the stupidity of any or all of this, but it doesn't matter. Being President its on him, whether he recognizes it or not. And as Afghanistan descends into Taliban rule, which is now certain, the remaining question is what power will rush in to fill the vacuum, and with what consequences?
