Obama: Soldiers in Afghanistan Must Be Fired Upon to Receive Combat Pay


While I understand that only a fraction of the population of this nation is directly affected by what you are about to read, I would never-the-less like to remind you that the remainder of the population is affected coincidentally. While the majority of the American population probably never even considered the Armed Forces as a possible career objective, there are those who never considered life without serving their country, in uniform, on a field of combat. Most of these young men and women never take the time to internalize some idealized vision of charging death for God and Country, they just have a burning desire for the call on their lives to do so and then, most importantly, they act!



President Obama, however, was apparently never burdened with that urgent call to serve others or his country selflessly. And because the only thing he ever answered to was a call to “self-empowerment” and self-ingratiation, he has been a brutal failure as a moral leader and Commander in Chief. In addition, his unquenchable desire to “win over” that portion of the world population to whom he has sold his soul has led him to a new round of actions that should anger every red blooded American and will disgust every American who has ever donned the uniform of a United States Marine!


This week, President Obama sought to block legislation that would hold Iran accountable ... . This inexplicable move hasn’t any bearing on the current crisis except for it’s ability to tilt world opinion in favor of US interests. The Obama administration’s actions to derail this legislation in Congress, then, can only be seen as an effort to bolster support for the Iranian regime which can only be understood through the prism of this sitting President’s indefatigable efforts to “reconcile” with the Islamic nations of the world.


If three plus years of his purposeful attempts to insult the country he has sworn to defend through his many prostrating speeches on Islamic soil and this latest otherwise despicable move haven’t enlightened you, then maybe this next story will help finish your education!


As of February 1st 2012, President Obama has determined that Combat Pay for US forces will be determin.... In general, Afghanistan has been deemed a combat zone and all US forces deployed in that region have been eligible for combat pay due to the certainty of encountering dirt-bags in firefights, ambushes, IED’s or suicide bombings. This new policy now requires having been shot at first. For those not understanding the problem with this, it now says that the US Government has effectively declared Afghanistan a “safe zone”! And this in spite of the nearly daily reports of Americans being either wounded or killed!


This newest insult is certainly an effort to bolster what will be his campaign claim to have “pacified” Afghanistan during his tenure and having kept one of his last campaign promises to bring all troops home by the end of his first term. But here again is where perception, does not align with reality. In a land where the Taliban are given new control over the country by our unwillingness to hold them accountable in combat and where discussions of “peace talks” include promises to release known murderous thugs back onto the battlefield where our troops still operate, the Taliban have made it clear they are not only not in talks but that they are not interested.


Is this the “safe” Afghanistan where Warriors are still forced to patrol daily, are wounded in daily, killed in daily, betrayed by Afghan Soldiers and Police Cadets, daily and which the Obama Administration has now effectively declared no longer a combat zone?


So once again, the health and well-being of our Warriors will suffer for political expedience. In addition, all troops fired upon, wounded or killed by our “Afghan partners” will not be viewed as combat deaths but fratricide/murder, making those incidents criminal acts. This will affect the way United States Marines, Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors and Coast Guardsmen who are wounded or killed in that polluted land are treated by this government. It will also most likely change the SGLI eligibility status from non-taxable to taxable!!


Are things clearing up now??


These latest actions by this sitting President would be curious and difficult to understand if his actions in the first months of his administration had not been so telling. When one of the first actions in a President’s term is to give a speech on foreign soil, to people who are spiritually opposed to our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and who we know have supported terrorist acts across the world, these newest actions can only be described as part of some subversive plan. Let’s not forget that he “apologized” for the United States in that and following speeches to yet other foreign, Islamic audiences and in at least one meeting, prostrated himself to his Muslim host which had the affect of subjugating the United States and it’s citizenry to that “host”.


It remains a mystery why no one in Congress has seen fit to decry either of these last two outrages which should give you an indication of the current condition of the heart of leadership in this country.


This election cycle certainly won’t give DC the enema it needs or deserves, but it could have the affect of sending a message to all those who dare suggest they are fit for leadership on the national stage. People seeking to “serve” on the national stage need to know that their personal proclivities toward self-aggrandizement will no longer be tolerated. They need to know that the American voter will be educated and engaged in the political process and that our first concern is for the future security of this nation and that vision includes those who are actively serving in regions of the world into which they have been thrust.


The people of this nation need to realign their priorities and put Honor first; not only in their own lives but in their requirement for those they would have represent them. Our Warriors have done that by the simple act of stepping forward and raising their right hands.


They should at least be afforded the dignity of having the dangerous space they operate in continue to be declared a combat zone!


Semper Fidelis;

1st Sgt, this man who likes to portray himself as the Commander-in-Chief is a total idiot.  Smart? only in his own eyes as far as I am concerned.  As a Vietnam veteran, I know that men and women who have never served in the United States Armed Forces have absolutely no concept of what conditions are like in a war zone.  Unlike others like you and me, they elected to go to college, protest when it suited them, and sit out any war or other combat situation.  Thank you for posting this and may God bless you with long life, many descendents, and smooth sailing over the sea of life.

In total agreement with you Felix.

This is the sh*t for brains and his merry band of idiots who call themselves Americans at their best.They would rather
cut our troops throught than cut an entitelment to some lame ass looking for a free ride.

If congress believed in there oath he would not be in office they are jut as much a trader as he is

agreed,we the people were do we meet and get these treasonous traders out of office.we the people its time to rise.before this illegal musmutt{the devil ovomit and his band of treasonous coward traders do any more we the people.this vile upsurp,pile of dung.and his band of cowards,holdup,pelosi,reid,kagan,napalitano,doj,doh,un people and building.are lawless traders.its time we the people vote if possible are kick them out of office if necessary.we the people its time.god bless all american veterans and all american citizens  

I like your adjectives of our dear, and benevolent Little Dictator Barack Hussein Barry Soltoro O'Vomit Obama,(I hope you don't mind but out of respect I capitalized, and "Irishonized" ovomit, to give it more of a distinguised look. - Richard C. Wagener

P.S. This guy makes Benedict Arnold look like a Choir Boy!

Don't insult the Irish.

The OWS and the other Communists are all meeting in Chicago on May 1st . they intend to bring in the American Spring with destruction, murder and Violence. This is the bottom up, top down  moment they need to call in Martial Law. The UN and G8 will be in they're meetings. Rahm Emanuel is orchestrating the event and they are bringing in people Internationally to help them to disrupt American in every way.

I fervently hope and pray that God continues to bless and watch over the men and women of the Armed Forces as well as their families.  This imbecilic and idiotic wierdo (p)resident must GO!  I am working as hard as I can to secure his defeat at the polls in November.

You gotta be freakin' kidding me.  Obummer hates our military and it makes no difference if they are active duty, veterans or retirees.  He hates all of us.  If he will do this now, there is no end to what he will do to us if he gets reelected.  God forbid it, God bless America and God bless our troops in Afghanistan and all over the world.

you are so right the bs come out of dc is reprehensible and as for me i think we need to call and send letters to congress i really don't think it works  but  what else can we do i know what i like to do but big brother is listening!!( fema camps ) 

They went into the closet and dug out the old pay manuels..... In 1965 in Vietnam I drew what was called "Hostile Fire Pay" of $50.00 per month if I was fired upon during that calender month...... I think it was 1967 or 1968 before we started drawing "Combat Pay" (The same $50.00 )..... Hostile Fire Pay is paid to soldiers assigned to a "Military Police Action" and "Combat Pay" is supposed to be paid if they are assigned to a "War Zone"..... Obama did this to be able to pay more money to his people to get him re-elected and to pay all of those elected to Federal Office that refuse to stand up and call him a traitor and demand he be tried for treason.....
