Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said joining the military is like “throwing your life away” as a result of President Biden’s foreign policy.
The Georgia congresswoman listed the reasons people shouldn’t join the military while speaking with former Fox News anchor Lou Dobbs.
“I know a lot of young people don’t want anything to do with it. It’s like throwing your life away,” she said Saturday on Dobbs’ podcast The Great American Show.
“Not to mention how they were forced to take the vaccine and those who didn’t want to take it were fired. Who wants to be treated like that?”
Greene argued that the rules of engagement mean people are “shot at, killed and maimed” before they are allowed to defend themselves by shooting back.
“It’s a top-down, bottom-up disaster. We can add the training, the wake training, where they have to undergo this ridiculous ideology of the sick and satanic left,” Greene added.
Her comments were prompted by Dobbs, who expressed doubts about the “quality of the people” at the Department of Defense in Biden’s administration.
During the podcast, Dobbs questioned why people should join the military when they end up just being recruited as “Boots on the Ground” to put out fires abroad. His comments refer to the 100,000 US troops currently deployed across Europe following the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Dobbs hinted that after Biden pulled troops out of Afghanistan last August, people will be less inclined to come forward.
“Can you imagine telling a recruit that you’ll be fine, just like those Marines in Kabul,” he said, referring to the 13 US troops killed at the Afghan capital’s airport in August 2021.
“Maybe we don’t have time to come back and get you. But you know, it’s all going to be fine… We’re going to fight a third world country for two decades and come out with our tails between us,” Dobbs added. “Who in their right mind would say, ‘Sign me up for this, Sarge?'”
The military is struggling to recruit in the wake of the pandemic. The US Army announced that it did not meet its target for new recruits at the end of 2021.
In January, the US Army offered $50,000 in bonuses to those who can commit to six years of service in a desperate bid to recruit new members.
