" Hey, while we're at it, lets make the forward bases take down their guard and watch towers, number one because the towers offend the enemy and invade Afghan village privacy, and number two, we don't allow any aggressive strike pre-empting tactics anyway. There really is no sense in seeing what enemy is doing, because we won't allow the troops to shoot within 500 yards of the civilian population anyway. We'll just tell the Marines and soldiers that, what they can't see, can't hurt them. Yeah, that's work. Meanwhile we'll negotiate with the Taliban, maybe if we promise not to kill them, they'll just leave us alone. I'm all for that General Petraeus, aren't you?"
I know that to many of you the afore written scenario sounds totally ridiculous, but I assure you, it may not be a inane as it sounds. Obama is convinced that he can still talk his way to victory in Afghanistan, the same as he knows he can spend this country out of debt. I honestly believe that Obama feels he'll be able to blame the loss of blood and treasure on the Bush Administration.
The facts, are as stated above. The guard towers are being dismantled because the village folks feel that their privacy is being invaded. Never mind the fact that RPG rounds and mortar rounds are fired at our troops from those very villages. When the towers are up, at least our troops could see when mortar emplacements were being set up, and when insurgents were running around the village, now our men and women a simply sitting ducks. Thank you so much you Muslim sympathizing traitor to America, President Barack Hussein Obama. I'm not leaving General Petraeus off the hook on this one either. Back on June 25, 2010 the General said: " The current Rules Of Engagement (R.O.E's) are getting soldiers killed." They must be changed. Well, here we are, 4 months later, and the R.O.E's have changed alright, they've obviously been changed for the worst, and are even more of a detriment to our troops. Why not just take away the guns and bullets too, lets just let our men and women fend off the enemy by throwing camel spiders at the insurgents.
There is nothing more obvious to me, and to our military in harm's way, that our president is a Muslim sympathiser, and doesn't care one iota about the lives of those we send to defend us. Obama's only concern is how the rest of the world, and especially the middle east sees America, well actually not America, but haw the world sees Barack Hussein Obama. The best way for Obama to justify his Nobel Peace Prize, is to allow American troops to die at the hands of barbaric Muslim soldiers.
I remember how angry I got in Vietnam when orders came down not to fire on the perimeter line unless we were fired upon. I got even angrier when a rumor of an order telling us that captured Viet Cong prisoners were be transported to the rear before our own wounded. But in Afghanistan, where our military are getting orders to dismantle guard towers, because we don't want to infringe on the privacy of nearby villages, that is just ludicrous beyond belief. What self respecting General would place his troops in such peril in order to appease the enemy? If in fact General Patraeus is the one who initiated this order, he should be drummed out of the military, with no pension, and in shame. I really don't care if the order came from the Commander In Chief. It must be taken into consideration, that the Commander In Chief of the United States of America, doesn't know his butt from a hole in the ground about war, and tactics, and worse yet, he despises the military. Where are the Generals with backbone? Are they really all gone, did the last General with guts pass into posterity. Was General "Stormin' Norman" the last of the true warrior Generals? When Dwight Eisenhower passed away did he take most of the stalwarts with him? I'm thinking that now when we have a President whose intention it is to give medals to soldiers for not killing the enemy, then America has reached the point of no return. Medals for cowardice, who would have ever thought it could happen.
George Washington, General Patton, General MacArthur, General Omar Bradley, Admiral "Bull" Halsey, General "Chesty" Puller, they must all be spinning in their graves right now. America, land of the free and home of the brave. Our soldiers are brave, and our home is still free, for now that is. But the Men who have become Generals, have no more honor or integrity than our president. A pathetic lot they are, indeed!
Where does America go from here? Do we fall by the wayside as did other great empires and societies. Will America be known as the greatest nation that ever existed on the face of the earth, or will we go down in the annuls of history as a once great nation that allowed tolerance, and political correctness to destroy us from within. America has an honorable past, will we have an honorable future? I don't know, but I can tell you that if we don't find a way to stop this downward spiral, and soon, there will be no nation left to save. Our freedom will be sold off, and given away, and we will not have anyone to blame but ourselves. That's right, we have free elections in this country, at least for now. The future is truly in our hands, and we must grasp it firmly. We must turn back to God, and pray for guidance in this November election. It is imperative that all of us vote, to save this nation. We all know right from wrong and good from evil. We must use that discernment. We must use it now!!!
