LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - It reads like Soviet history under Stalin, but the U.S. military's top brass are quietly being purged by Obama who some allege is on a mission to "emasculate" the military.

Retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady said that Obama is destroying the morale of the U.S. Army so that officers and men no longer feel they are prepared to fight. "There is no doubt he (Obama) is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him" over such issues as "homosexuals, women in foxholes, the Obama sequester," Brady told WND News.

"They are purging everyone" another source reportedly told WND.

This year alone, nine top generals have been dismissed from duty.

In addition to the greatest purge of brass ever witnessed in U.S. military history, troops are being sent into the field without training and equipment required to do the job. Last month, the U.S. Army's Chief of Staff, Gen. Raymond Odierno told the media that the Army only has two effective combat brigades ready for deployment, and that none of the others are qualified for combat because of a lack of training and equipment.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin said it was a subject of worry, the rate at which generals were being relieved of duty. "Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause," Boykin told WDN. "I believe there is a purging of the military. The problem is worse than we have ever seen."

In earlier reports, top military brass say they were mysteriously questioned and asked if they would ever give an order to fire on American citizens if the president asked them to do so. Reportedly, generals who answered in the negative were eventually compelled to retire.

Why such a question would be asked remains a mystery.

"Morale is at an unprecedented low" Boykin said. He added, "Now we don't have the will to win."

Purging the military of experienced officers is a dangerous thing. In the years prior to World War II, Joseph Stalin purged about 90 percent of his officers from the Red Army, leaving politically loyal, but ineffective commanders in command on the eve of Operation Barbarossa. The Soviet Union paid a tremendous toll because of ineffective command and control in the early stages of the war.

In addition to those being pushed out of command by the administration, many others are leaving voluntarily. Nobody wants to serve in a capacity where they feel unappreciated.

General Brady said additional problems were "girly-men leadership, medals for not shooting and operating a computer. This president will never fight if there is any reason to avoid it and with a helpless military he can just point to our weakness and shrug his shoulders."
