"There is NO WAY our soldiers can have any confidence in command at this late date. Who is going to take a stand for the troops, placed in harms way under a bundle of lies, forced to face an enemy armed by our own government?"

This was posted on Facebook by a soldier who I do not know on Facebook. Facebook removed it and then it was re-posted by a friend of his. The last part is a little disturbing.
"Some people are asking me what I think about Syria, so here it is.
I’m tired. I’m tired of people watching their children grow up via Facebook and Skype. I’m tired of hearing a man tell his wife ‘I love you’ followed by ‘I miss you’ for an entire year. I’m tired of watching the military divorce rate shoot sky-high. I’m tired of overhearing some teenager tell his mom over the phone, “I’m going over there” and hearing her cry from 20 feet away. I’m tired of Veterans waiting years to get the help they deserve and need. I’m tired of empty seats at Christmas dinner every other year and anniversary presents in the mail flying overseas. I’m tired of new men and women walking around with invisible wounds that don’t heal. Our flag is a beautiful thing- but I’m tired of seeing it draped over a casket. I’m tired of men and women missing pieces of their bodies, minds, and souls.
I want peace in Syria. I want people to stop killing each other in Syria, as well as anywhere else in the world. I want to look back on wars, not anticipate them. I want to make plans for the next year, and the year after that don’t revolve around being in a foreign country. I want proof that the people we’re helping aren’t the people who have been trying to kill us for more than a decade. I want to know that the people we’re attacking are the ones who used the Chemical Weapons. I want to know how Syria’s problem is a threat to America, our Freedom, and our people. I want to know why we’re doing this alone, when the use of Chemical Weapons should get an international response.
I can’t protest in uniform or speak against the leaders of our country. But I can address people.
Stop worrying about Miley Cyrus rubbing her ass on Beetlejuice. The next season of The Walking Dead will be available on DVD and Netflix and I promise, it won’t change from what they’ve shown on television. Unless you play football, and your income depends on that next game, stop obsessing over a sport for a bit. The clubs, bars, honky-tonks, and juke joints will be there all year. Ben Affleck isn’t a real hero, so it doesn’t matter what he does in a Batman costume at this point. You might want to turn your attention to this for just a minute, and maybe say how you feel about it- one way or another.
Because a whole lot of people are going to die real soon, no matter what. It’s just a matter of who they are."
I would not serve under Obama nor would I defend Obama. NO WAY
I wouldn't ether,serve under Qbama !!!!!
NO WAY,, NO HOW..!!
Robert, as sad as I am to see this I know it is true. Our military is not what it used to be and I say that after I served in our military for over twenty years. We must hope that we can survive the next three years and put someone in office that can rebuild our country.
Twana, your right.......that last line IS disturbing!! God help us!!!
I can not see how any REAL AMERICAN could serve under obummer.
Is it possible that all the blow-up about Syria is just to make us stop talking about all those "Phony scandals"????
I agree... As Once said.. "Never has there been a good war or a bad peace" ~ Benjamin Franklin Americans need to get their head out of the clouds. This Stealth Socialist Community Organizer would like nothing more than to collapse the economy of the U.S.A. The fact that Obomber is doing nothing to fix the national debt just proves that he is counting on the Debt sinking the U.S.A. The Dollar will be useless & without universal power.. Rest assure there will be riots.. Martial law will permit the socialists to impose the Liar N Chiefs plan to Fundamentally Transform America.
Unlike Vietnam if the draft is reinstated and that includes females I will NOT say anything about those who leave the country. No one in their right mind would want to serve under this regime.
This current occupant left behind 4 dead Americans. There would have been more had the two SEALS not fought to the death.
They were left behind when the chief Muslim turned his back on them. He has proven were his support goes and it is not for the good of the United States. Actions speak louder than words and his actions scream Muslim.
When the godless gays in today's military are unleashed on American citizens, along with the Obama brigades and the Jihadist Muslims, they will make for odd bedfellows and though they are being trained by morons of similar mindsets, they cannot compete with well trained retirees and veterans of the FORMER American military. . ONCE WE ARE ORGANIZED THEY WILL BE IN A WORLD OF HURT BECAUSE WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP OR IN. It is important to us all that we realize the youths of this country are useless because they have been made that way by the liberal 'educational system," and, as a result, most of them are incapable of independent thought. THIS IS ALSO TRUE OF THOSE WHOM WE WILL BE FIGHTING. WE NEED SOLIDARITY AND A CONVICTION WE WILL BEAT THEM IN THE END AND, WE WILL.
Brian Rich, you are soooo right. The militray of yester- year is more equiped than the brainwashed military of today!!!
