Obama Planning To Replace Thousands Of Troops With Robots And Drones

| January 21, 2014

Obama’s Private Army

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”Barack Hussein Obama, 2008 campaign

“I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not”. Those who will not are being removed.” - Dr. Jim Garrow – January 21, 2013

The US Army is considering replacing thousands of soldiers with robots as it deals with sweeping troop cuts. A senior American officer has said he is considering shrinking the size of the Army’s brigade combat teams by a quarter and replacing the lost troops with robots and remote-controlled vehicles. The American military is still far from fielding armies of Terminator-type robotic killers though.

Ideas under discussion instead include proposals to see manned lorries and transporters replaced by supply trains of robots vehicles. Generals are studying proposals as the US Army is to slim down from 540,000 to about 490,000 soldiers by the end of next year. Some reports suggest it could dip below 450,000 by the end of the decade.

In response, Gen Robert Cone, head of the army’s training and doctrine command, is considering shrinking the army’s brigade combat teams from about 4,000 soldiers to 3,000 and using more robots, according to Defense News, a US military magazine.

He told a seminar: “I’ve got clear guidance to think about what if you could robotically perform some of the tasks in terms of maneuverability, in terms of the future of the force.”

Options under discussion, he said, included trains of robot vehicles that would following vehicles with human drivers in long supply convoys.

He said the army should also follow the lead of the navy in using technology to cut manpower. “When you see the success, frankly, that the Navy has had in terms of lowering the numbers of people on ships, are there functions in the brigade that we could automate – robots or manned/unmanned teaming – and lower the number of people that are involved, given the fact that people are our major cost?”

However, there are no immediate plans for autonomous robots to be deployed with lethal firepower. Huw Williams, an expert on military robots and unmanned vehicles at the defence publication IHS Jane’s, said armies were focusing on investigating robots vehicles for transport.

He said: “If you have a lead manned vehicle, you could have several unmanned vehicles following behind, or a train solely of unmanned vehicles.”

Research into remote-controlled military vehicles had so far largely concentrated on allowing commanders to keep soldiers out of harm’s way, but they could also see a reduction in the number of troops, he added.

Several robot ground vehicles have already been tested in Afghanistan, including the Squad Mission Support System, a six-wheeled robotic buggy to carry soldiers’ kit and baggage. America has meanwhile waged an aggressive drone campaign targeting insurgents and al-Qaeda terrorists in the border regions of Pakistan.

Campaigners claim the secretive campaign has killed hundreds of civilians. Britain already has hundreds of remotely-piloted drone aircraft ranging from tiny surveillance helicopters to large Reaper drones armed with deadly hellfire missiles.

The rise of the new technologies has provoked fears of future battlefields one day stalked by unaccountable robotic killing machines, and in 2012, Human Rights Watch called for a pre-emptive ban on killer robots “before it’s too late”.

Former US commander General Stanley McChrystal, who oversaw Nato forces in Afghanistan, warned yesterday that America’s drones programme created “a tremendous amount of resentment” in the areas it targeted.

Asked by the BBC’s Today programme what the future was for drone warfare, he said: “There’s a danger that something that feels easy to do and without risk to yourself, almost antiseptic to the person shooting, doesn’t feel that way at the point of impact. And so if it lowers the threshold for taking operations because it feels easy, there’s danger in that.” source – Telegraph UK

    At Least these Robots will not PTSD from serving in war!

  2. Corey Zimits says:

    I see Obama has been watching too many of his daughters’ DVDs, namely Short Circuit!

    • Tracy says:

      @Corey,
      I agree with you, and also think that NTEB writers are watching the same DVD’s. Too much fear posted on this website; it appears to be more for entertainment purposes than anything else.
      Just my opinion.

  3. Larry Grant says:

    He has already replaced all the democrats with Drones, so why not the military?

  4. John Jr. says:

    Number 5 is alive…Johnny 5 lives!!!!!!

    • STL says:

      John Jr: I read in the Wasington Post this morning, that Obama will cut 30% of the military from retiring on their pensions. And the 1% will go to 10% for retirement of the military if not, your disable by 2015. What does Obama has to lose, he’s not up for reelection, is he?

      All these drones replacements are for guys like you, ready to retire in a few next years. That would really cut the debt for the military expense.

      So get ready to leave the military without your pension, you’ll just be a veteran with few benefits.

      Also in the Blaze News, Obama by 2015, will cut all non-service pensions to veterans to save money in cut backs.

      You wonder why it takes 320 days to even be considered to recieve 30% service connection, because it saves the government more money. It took me 42 years to recieve my service connection benefits.

      Also all the veterans that recieved 50% to 70% PTSD benefits, Obama has requested any veteran that has future reexaminations on there benefits, will be called in again, for another examination to cut these benefits. President Bush Sr. did it on the Social Security disability.

      So on my records shows that I have no future examinations sheduled, so maybe Obama will leave my pension alone?

      • John Jr. says:

        Drones can’t touch this, I got my tin foil hat. I also fashioned some tin cans around my house that blocks the radar. Seriously though I am grandfathered in under the current retirement plan, now disability is a different beast, it may change but my greatest challenge is to get my retirement and disability sequentially.

  5. John Smith says:

    America definitely has problems that people should be concerned about. The National Debt, the people we elect in to office not having their constituents best interest in mind, a deplorable education system, but what hurts this country the most is irresponsible journalism. This articular is nothing more than fear mongering. It plays on the fears of people too lazy to do their own research and form their own opinions. The photo they use to clearly try to scare the public into believing that Obama is amassing a robot army is from a movie from the 80′s called “Short Circuit”. There is no excuse for this type of reporting. Any idiot with a website can make up lies and use half truths to forward there own agenda. I love and respect my country. I have full faith that there is NO WAY any American soldier would ever fire on helpless Americans no matter what the order. I do not agree with most of Obama’s ideas and look forward to his term as President ending. That being said, there is no secret agenda, no secret society controlling our world leaders. Stand up for what is right. Help put a stop to this type of irresponsible reporting.

      John Jr, surely you are joking? If not do some research on Agenda 21, Geo Magnetic Engineering, NWO, and on and on. Hidden agenda on those things, no not hidden I guess just agenda! But you could say Fukashima, BP, W Virginia secrets, well you might just say that’s all hidden as its not in mainstream news much. HMMM Have a nice day blessings

      • joe says:

        omfg your a nutjob go back under the insanity rock you came from under and just die please!

          Joe, hmmm you are saying I am an idiot? should die? why? I apologize if I am not following the blue if you are not speaking to me, even tho it has been explained, I just don’t do it well. So, if you are speaking to me please answer my questions? thanks

  6. STL says:

    John Jr: Keep thinking your going to retire, because your best bet, will be that you recieved salvation and Jesus is your savior, because before Obama leaves office, you will be retired without a military pension.

    • John Jr. says:

      I really believe that if there was ever a proposal of cutting military retirement that the entire military structure would revolt and take over the country, or at least the government. And believe me we could if we pulled our forces together.

  8. Ron Murphy says:

    People say, tribulation is the wrath of God.
    Jesus said to flee out of Judea, not because of God’s wrath but because of persecution. Beside God’s wrath is world wide, where you going to run and hide? They try to run to the mountain and ask they fall on them, Where you going to run?
    Another thing the 144k are not going to witness, but they will be witnessed to, by the 2 witnesses. You can not give me Bible that they will witness until after Jesus takes the throne.

    • Corey Zimits says:

      Ron, look at Revelation 12:6

      6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

      The woman is Israel. God has prrepared a place for Israel to remain safe from the antichrist. Most believe the place will be among the caves of Petra, Jordan.

    • Corey Zimits says:

      Also, you are correct. There is no scripture that would support the thought of the two witnesses preaching until after Jesus takes His throne. This is because the two witnesses will preach during the first half of the tribulation period.

      • STL says:

        HI COREY: IN REV. 11: 3 TALKS ABOUT THE TWO WITNESSES AND IT MENTION THAT THE PROPHECY FOR 1,260 DAYS, SO THAT AT MID-POINT OF THE TRIBULATION. SO BY THIS SCRPITURE SHOW THEY DO NOR WITNESS UNTIL MID-POINT IN THE TRIBULATION.

        THEN VERSE 6: NO RAIN FALL ON THE EARTH DURING THE TIME THEY PROPHECY.

        THEN IN VERSE 7-8 WILL BE THE END OF THE TRIBULATION THAT SATAN HAS THEM KILLED.

        VERSE 9: THEY LAY IN THE STREETS FOR 3 1/2 DAYS.

        VERSE 12: THE ARE RAPTURED TO HEAVEN.

        VERSE 13: THEIR IS GREAT EARTHQUAKE IN ISRAEL, 10% OF THE CITY WAS DESTROYED, 7,000 PEOPLE DIED AND THE JEWS GAVE GLORY TO GOD.

        • STL says:

          COREY: WHO WITNESSES TO ALL GENTILES AND JEWS ARE THE 144,OOO JEWS YOUNG MEN , BUT THEY WITNESSES THE ENTIRE 7 YEARS, BECAUSE WHEN JESUS COMES IN THE 2ND COMING, WHEN HE’S AT MOUNT OLIVES, IT STATES THE 144,000 WILL BE STANDING WITH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. REV. 14:1

        • Corey Zimits says:

          11 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

          2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

          3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

          The two witnesses will witness during the first half of the tribulation period. After they are killed, the antichrist will enter the temple that is built during the time and declare himself to be God. After this, Israel will flee to a place prepared by God in the wilderness.

          I think that verse 2 points to the arabs obtaining east Jerusalem as a captial, as Gentiles will trample the holy city. There will be a war and the rapture, not sure in which order, then a seven year peace treaty, two witnesses, then the final 3.5 years in which Israel flees into the wilderness and God’s wrath is poured onto the earth.

      • Ron Murphy says:

        No, Corey that’s not what I said at all, I said the Jewish remnant will not preach, not the 2 prophets. And I believe they will prophecy in the 2nd half, during the tribulation period. The first half is a time of peace and sacrificing in the city of Jerusalem. The covenant made with them by the antichrist, supports this. At the middle of the week is when things go berserk. The only war we see at the first week is with Egypt, king of the south, Dan 11.

  9. That is true. The Bible instructs the Jewish to flee from persecution when they see the Antichrist reveal himself (a&d)

    • Ron Murphy says:

      Why would Jesus tell the Jew? Have they ever listened to what He said? No, He was telling the Christians to flee, that’s what makes her desolate, the fleeing of the Christians, because of the abomination. If the Jews left Jerusalem, who would the two witnesses witness to? They fed the woman in the wilderness, the place of desolation. The Jews satay in Jerusalem were hiding from the beast, that they might get the word fed to them because there is a famine in the land, not of food but of the hearing of the word of God. That is the desolation, nearly empty of God’s word.

      Amo 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
      Amo 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

      • Corey Zimits says:

        Revelation 12:6

        6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

        This takes place roughly half way through the tribulation period, after the two witnesses have preached for the first thousand two hundred and threescore days, as described in Revelation 11:3

        3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

        • Ron Murphy says:

          You take it chronologically, it’s not! Chapter 12 is shown to John after the book of 7 seals are explained. They ended with Jesus reigning in Rev. 11:15, the 7th trumpet. Now, if we go to Rev. 19, that explains when he comes to reign and the battle fought to gain control of the kingdom, to reign in it. Once Christ reigns, it’s all over, start again, Rev goes back to the tribulation period again, once explained already in the 3rd – 5th seal, then it covers it again in the beginning of chapter 11 until verse Rev. 11:13. Now at chapter 12, is a different vision given of that time over again, and continues with chapters 13-16. Chapter 17 once again starts over the cycle again, Because we see Jesus reigning at the 7th vial, chapter 16:17, “It is done”, signifies the war is fought and won, that was leading up in verse Rev 16:12-16, the 6th vial.

      • Teresa B says:

        Easy for you to say Brenda he probly didn’t yell at you and tell you the devil was in you cuz you wore red wigs!!!! :) Hope you are well, Blessings

        • I remember that, I love D City, but sometimes we can let little things get to us. It’s best to let it go and let God handle it, ain’t it? God knows that there are bigger things to come, that we have to face, as Christians……..like the mark and tribulation.
          There will be a falling away, because of offenses.

          Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
          Mat 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
          Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
          Mat 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
          Mat 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
          Mat 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
          Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
          Mat 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
          Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

  17. STL says:

    RON: YOUR CORRECT ABOUT THE 2 WITNESSES BEGINS THEIR PROPHECY AT MID POINT TO THE END OF THE TRIBULATION, ONE OF THE WITNESSES IS ELIJAH, AND THE JEWS BEEN WAITING FOR MANY 1000 OF YEARS FOR ELIJAH TO TELL THE JEWS WHO THEIR MESSIAH TRUELY IS?

    I’M GOING TO HAVE A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN, I’M AGREEING WITH YOU!

    • Ron Murphy says:

      Yes, that is what the witnesses are here for, to tell the Jews who the Messiah is. We really have nothing to argue over, STL. Jesus will come when He’s ready, we both know that. All I ask is that you listen before you judge me. It’s a complicated thing to give it all in one page. It took Brenda a while to see it all. But it is there. Jody the science teacher seen it and how simple it really is, but it takes time. It’s a thing that must be built upon. Thank you for your peace. It’s a blessing to me. God bless you.

      • STL says:

        Ron Murphy: Why i’m so sure about Elijah? Because my father was Jewish 100%, he always said, Elijah will tell us who the Messiah will be, I tried to tell him that Jesus Christ was the Messiah, but he did not believe in the New Testament, so basically it was a losing arguement.

        • Ron Murphy says:

          Maybe STL, but the sad thing is they did not recognize him as John the Baptist either. Even John himself did not know it. ???

          Mat 11:9 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.
          Mat 11:10 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

          Mat 11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
          Mat 11:14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.
          Mat 11:15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

  22. Have you ever wondered why they are using horses at the battle of Armageddon instead of modern machinery (Revelation 14:15)? One EMP would put an antire army back into the horse age.

    • Ron Murphy says:

      Yes I have thought of that as well, I believe when the earth reels to and fro, and the power of the heaven shaken it will destroy all electronics and navigation systems. This all happens at the rapture after tribulation. Matt 24:29. Of coarse the battle is not until near the end of God’s wrath, so with all that’s happening in that wrath, could keep it all down anyway. It’s all God’s doing not that of man.

  23. Ron Murphy says:

    NTEB, You’re fowling everything with those two videos playing, you add another, and you’re down.

    • Ron Murphy says:

      Maybe you haven’t considered the refreshing that must be done in posting here. It’s a constant process doing that and every time one must wait on the videos to play or go up and click them paused. Perhaps you could have the videos but leave them to be opened by the viewer. Please consider!

    Does any body else realize that the robots in the picture are from the movie “Short Circuit”.

  25. Johnboy says:

    This made me laugh. Especially with the Johnny 5 robots on the first pick. Soldiers have to pay for food when they go to the field this will never happen. This article was from the the dufflebag.com right? This can’t be real.

  26. STL says:

    Brenda: Suggestion, if Ron said he’s sorry to D City, remember some times we need to ask forgiveness even when we think we are right.

    Give you example: Argueing with my wife, and I know I’m right, but her feelings are hurt, its better just to say that I was wrong, than proving I’m right, because all it will lead to is me sleeping on the couch than in bed with my wife!

    • Ron said that he did apologize, but D City wanted to break off our friendship anyway.
      Sometimes we let our pride get in the way. God was using D City and Ron, they made a good team.
      I don’t think D City liked me to much. lol. :)
      But that’s okay. I have a clear conscience about it all.

  28. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason
    seemed to be at the internet the simplest thing to remember of.

    I say to you, I certainly get irked at the same time as folks consider issues that they just do not recognise about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as defined
    out the entire thing with no need side-effects , folks could take
    a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
