Just moments before posting this..watched a segment where U.S. troops overseas from Afghanistan to the Gulf spoke of not being paid on time..of injured soldiers..some even in Hospital still having certain support funding terminated.
This reality ..where the soldier gets the nix from the top as per concern runs past party lines....makes me mad as hell!
Legions marched out of Rome on a mandate that devolved in time ..to finding them set against another Roman Legion or 2 in battle.
Troop stood by their comand...but their command was manipulated by the above crowd [Senate].
I see this happening again..The Hill..the Pentagon...D.C. with its CFR types tampering as the media weather vane moves.
A soldier leaves all for his nation...at least he should have some clarity to what he/she is about to forfeit all for.
During the Battle of Britian..R.A.F. Pilots saw their buddies buy the farm in a matter of weeks...they knew the reason for thier duty..and the reality set upon their nation.
Since WW-2..it seems the clarity lines for why the troop is out on Geostrategic projection blurrs..
Gov seems to at least find the means to send their soldiers in harms way..but mismanages them in diverse ways...eventually to become some segment on the news..which we either ponder or wretch on..plus party line and social lean from the media drive.
So..like the ancient days of Rome..the legion marches out...knowing the Senate is going to tamper with the original mandate.
Some of the Senators are traitors for whom Leavenworth should be their retirement home.
