Pentagon Warns Against Attempting to Sucker Punch USA During Virus Crisis

Much like the rattlesnake depicted on the Gadsden flag, our nation is coiled and ready to strike if threatened. 

When it comes to military might, there is no denying that the United States is fairly well atop the global leaderboard.

We’re the world’s police, when we need to be; that’s just how gargantuan our presence and power are.  Perhaps only Russia or China could even chink our metaphorical armor, and the retribution from American troops would dwarf whatever cheap shots those two would be able to get off anyway.

And yes, this is still true during this time of crisis.

With an aircraft carrier forced into port and staff at bases handling nuclear missiles hit by COVID-19, the US military wants rivals to understand: don’t test us, we have not been weakened.

Statement after statement from the Pentagon has sought to deliver that message amid questions this week over whether the US fighting force can maintain full readiness, with cases among service members now at 2,031.

“We’re still capable and we’re still ready no matter what the threat,” Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley said Thursday.

“I wouldn’t want any mixed messages going out there to any adversaries that they can take advantage of an opportunity, if you will, at a time of crisis,” he added.

“That would be a terrible and tragic mistake if they thought that.”

As per the usual, it seems that Russia was attempting to use the internet to drum up worry.

Questions about US military readiness persist in part because of rumors and disinformation often coming from Russia, said Laura Cooper, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense.

“We have seen a number of threads of information that are heating up about the readiness of the US military and others,” Cooper, a Russia expert, told reporters.

Milley said that 2,000 infected personnel out of a fighting force of 2.3 million was “not huge.”

“And I want to make sure everyone clearly understands that the readiness of the US military is still strong,” he added.

“We’re still capable and we’re still ready no matter what the threat.”
