US Army to dismiss scores of unvaccinated soldiers

Almost a quarter of the US army that has not yet received the second vaccine will be facing dismissal. President Joe Biden is ready to purge those in the military who have not received their second jab.

    Currently, more than 260 000 US Military personnel are not “fully vaccinated” which means that they have only received one jab against Covid instead of two or more. Of the more than 268 000 soldiers who are not fully vaccinated, more than 252 000 are in the Army, according to the US Department of Defense (DoD). These soldiers, at least 27,5 percent of the more than 914 000 serving members, are now facing discharges.

    Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth in February explained the jab policy of the DoD: “Army readiness depends on Soldiers who are prepared to train, deploy, fight and win our nation’s wars… Unvaccinated Soldiers present a risk to the force and jeopardize readiness. We will begin involuntary separation proceedings for Soldiers who refuse the vaccine order and are not pending a final decision on an exemption.”

    This week, the US Air Force issued similar directives: “As Covid-19 cases continue to rise, Air Force medical leaders are urging all Airmen, Guardians and their families to vaccinate against Covid-19 and stay up-to-date on their vaccinations. Approved vaccines have been proven to decrease the chances of severe Covid-19 and prevent hospitalizations and death. Currently, the United States is averaging more than 120 000 daily reported cases and more than 350 deaths per day, driven by the new, more contagious variant called BA.5.”

    Other service branches however have a better vaccination rate. Only 2 983 Marines out of more than 203 000 (1,4 percent) are not “fully” jabbed, 5 300 sailors out of more than 389 000 (1,35 percent) and 8 285 airmen out of more than 505 000 (1,6 percent).

    According to some sources, the number of serving members is 485 000, which would mean around 50 percent could be purged due to not complying with the Biden administration’s mandates. To boot, the US military is already mired in a recruitment crisis.

    Targeting Christians

    On a podcast hosted by Republican representative Matt Gaetz from Florida, he accused the DoD of using the vaccine mandate to “intentionally purge” religious service members. They all agreed that the involuntary separation policy for vaccine refusal is part of a concerted effort to target certain members of the military.

    “If you are a believer and you are listening to this podcast, you need to understand that God-fearing service members are being intentionally purged from the services,” one soldier told Gaetz.

    “It’s a purposeful purge. Anyone who would disobey an unlawful order is being purged out of the military, and there is a shadow policy in place that is protecting all of these people enforcing this shadow policy,” another said.

    A civil war?

    The Biden administration’s policies of vaccine mandates, ethnic animosity, unlimited military spending abroad and constant toxic political invective have meanwhile contributed to a sharply growing divide among Americans.

    More than half of Americans expect that a civil war will erupt in the United States sometime in the near future, according to a study done by researchers at the University of California Davis Violence Prevention Research Program and the California Firearm Violence Research Center.

    The study was conducted by the pollster Ipsos and surveyed 8 620 respondents in English and Spanish between May 13 and June 2.

    When asked to respond to the statement “In the next few years, there will be a civil war in the United States,” some 36,4 percent said they “somewhat” agreed with the statement, 8,4 percent agreed “strongly,” while 5,3 percent agreed “very strongly.” Some 47,8 percent of respondents said they did not agree and the remaining 2,1 percent did not express an opinion.

    More than two-thirds of respondents agreed that “[t]here is a serious threat to our democracy,” while more than 40 percent indicated that “[h]aving a strong leader for America is more important than having a democracy”.
