What we MUST communicate to our brave servicemen is that they MUST stay the course. For our warriors to get out of the military would be the END of our Republic. Obama wants nothing more than to PACK the military with his political zombies. Patriotism equals staying the course. Our military is the only thing that stands between freedom and tyranny. God bless our nation and God bless our military.
I know that....you know that. But “the one” is going to pay off his supporters, and I don’t want anyone who served to feel it was worthless. I don’t want families of the fallen to feel that way. I honor their service - even if the current CIC doesn’t give a rip about national security.
The problem is with Obama in charge- the type of officers promoted to the top immediately will be the political zombies, and they will promote the political zombies and so on. With leadership sorry from the very top down it will be extremely difficult for the decent troops to perform their job and out of sheer day to day frustration with the lack of effective leadership and the cost cuts and downsizing the dims are famous for. When the good troops feel their being there no longer makes a difference or is appreciated they leave. We cannot expect them to do otherwise.
That may be true for junior officers and most enlisted and warrants, but for senior officers they need to "fall on their swords". Inside they can't speak out, outside they can, and should. The failure to do something like this over Johnson's
handling botching of the Vietnam war, was a major contributor to how that came out. Obama won't be listening to them anyway. The others should transfer to the guard or reserve. That way they too can speak out, at least somewhat, and they remain available "at need".
