Last week, the Navy released the results of a lengthy investigation it had completed, concerning the conduct of one officer and nine enlisted sailors after they willingly surrendered their two Riverine Patrol Craft to the Iranians and were subsequently detained for 15 hours in the Persian Gulf last January.

Our military is dangerously close to annihilation. They spend way too much energy on women and queers in the “ranks’ than fighting , killing and breaking things real bad. I expect Trump to waste the generals and admirals within 30 days of our take over and to replace them with “hitters” and to get the damned moslems, women and queers OUT!!

Once on board, the Iranians tore down the U.S. flags and replaced them with their own...

Read about half. Why the #### would I need to read more.

America is gone if trump loses and obama and his crew are communists.

They dont like elections.

Typing and donating and making phone calls is cool up until the election.

If that monster wins, PLEASE someone lead us to action!!

I don’t watch much TV anymore, but wasn’t there a recruitment vid that was all about ‘the environment’ or was that for the Coast Guard?

I bet they would have fought if their leaders had ordered them to and joined in.

Has there ever been a more disgraceful fiasco in the history of the US Navy?

I’ve read a lot of Navy history but this one takes the cake. Watching one sailor crying his eyes out, the female sailor wearing a head covering and listening to the CO apologize was disgusting.

NONE of the sailors put forth a good effort at representing the United States or the honor of the US Navy?

This entire event was a national disgrace.

This reads far worse than a Police Academy script.

I can’t believe how utterly incompetent and stupid these people are.

The Navy will probably promote the officers and NCO’s, and put the E-1 sailors in Leavenworth.

I dont have kids so I have less to lose if push comes to shove.

But what kind of future are we leaving the kids if we dont do anything.

I’m saying here and now, that I will not only not recognize hillary as president, I will do my best to undermine it.

Yeah, the internet is being watched. #### them.

Wait until the shooting starts and the likes of these sailors and their commanders wind up dead from the get-go.

That will wake up the Army and Navy to the dangers of laxity and political correctness real fast.

Doesnt matter if the troops are awake, their “leaders” are “qith the queers in the rear” (NO pun intended!!) But the leadership in the Pentagon is as queer as hell, and disgust me!!
I wish Jerry BOykin were still on active duty kicking ass and taking names!
