Tuberville: 'We Are Teetering on the Brink of World War III' – 'Most Dangerous Time in M• https://www.breitbart.com, JEFF POOR
During an interview with Mobile, AL radio's FM Talk 106.5, Tuberville, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, discussed problems with the U.S. military and its inability to recruit.
However, following his assessment, Alabama's senior U.S. Senator also warned the hostile acts around the globe have us "teetering on the brink of World War III."
"We've got more problems in our military right now because of the leadership, because of the wokeness that they're teaching – the CRT, the things that our kids shouldn't be taught," he said. "As I tell in hearings – one of the first things I always tell General [Mark] Milley of the joint chiefs of staff and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin – guys, you're not here to educate people on social issues. You're here to build a killing machine. We have to protect our country. We have to protect our allies. That is not their number one agenda for some reason. They want to bring all this woke teaching to our military."
"We were 20,000 behind last year in recruiting in the Army – first time ever," Tuberville continued. "And why is that? Because growing up are looking as this, going, 'Wait a minute, I don't want to go in there and learn all of this woke stuff. I don't want to follow up on what they just did in Afghanistan. Are we doing it for the right reasons?' It just amazes me the direction our military has gone. I talked to a head recruiter yesterday, a general of the Army, and we were trying to come up with ways to help recruiting. That's all I did for 40 years. As I told him, you've got to have something to sell that young men and women want in this country. Right now, what you're selling is a society most of the people in this country don't believe in."
