As America’s enemies continue to make threatening moves, many see the writing on the wall: War will soon be upon us. The question is, will Americans answer the call and serve their country?

If we listen to a recent poll, the answer is a hefty no.

According to Newsweek, the research institute Echelon Insights recently conducted a poll asking Americans if they would volunteer to serve in one of our military branches should a major war or conflict arise and involve the US.

A whopping 72 percent of Americans say they would NOT…

Newsweek reported, “The figures come as all branches of the armed forces have in recent years struggled to meet their recruitment targets, suggesting a growing apathy towards a career of military service.”

Another similar poll, reported on by the Daily Mail, found that less than half of Democrats would be willing to die for the United States of America should an invasion occur. And around 30 percent of those 18 to 29 years old admit they would rather surrender than fight.

To be sure, this is not good news for our country.

And news that causes us to question why this is the case.

Now, as CEO of Military Recruiting Experts David Eustice told Newsweek, it’s not uncommon to see some “apathy” for the military lifestyle during times of peace and contentment. Unfortunately, it often takes a conflict with a clear moral purpose to change that.

You might remember that shortly after the 9/11 attacks, Americans seemed to flock to recruiting offices. Similar patterns were seen after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in World War II.

But this time could be different.

Thanks to consistent woke teachings that the West and American culture are racist, oppressive, and more, fewer and fewer young Americans have a sense of patriotism that makes them proud of America, let alone want to fight for what she stands for.

Plus, with technology taking over their lives, the generations of today aren’t exactly the strongest in the bunch. And with most military branching embracing some woke policies, it’s not like our military is what it used to be.

Needless to say, the news of a coming war should make us very worried about our ability to fight at all.
