Posted on 01/20/2013 5:09:30 PM PST by SoFloFreeper

PrintShare This The strength and status of any nation can be measured in part by the will and might of its navy. That’s not an outdated thought; it’s a modern reality. As the largest, most versatile, most capable naval force on the planet today, America’s Navy epitomizes this idea. And yet, far more impressive is what it does with the distinction.

A symbol of power, a force for stability America’s Navy serves as an essential force of stability in an increasingly unstable and interconnected world – as well as a vanguard for positive change. Why is this important? Because what America’s Navy does each and every day makes the world as we know it possible.

Sorry, just watching the Ravens v Patriots game and was appalled to see this "Global Force for Good" slogan used to portray the US Navy.

I recall seeing Navy commercials growing up, and POWER was the reason to praise our Navy....not some fruity "global" good CRAP.

The fabulous “Meals On Wheels” ad campaign. I’m thinking it won’t be long before the military starts issuing bean bag guns to the troops.

The army has gone through a few in the last few years, they're currently using "army strong," which while not as good as "be all you can be" is still acceptable.

The airforce is currently using "aim high (and fly fight win?)," a vast improvement over the recent "do something amazing."

The marines are still tried and true with "the few, the proud" and "semper fi."

The navy...Its sad. Truly, tragically, heartbreakingly sad.

"A Global Force for Good"

What happened to the mission? You know, to kill people and break things.

The U.S. Navy has ALWAYS been a global force for good. It accomplished that by killing bad guys and blowing up their stuff.

They will be—that is why they are eliminating all chaplains and officers who think in orthodox Christian terms (Christianity- lots of churches were infiltrated with Leftists and homosexuals decades ago. Many so-called “Christians” are not)....

Machiavelli stated that to keep power, Republics had to promote Virtue in the military. It was absolutely necessary to have a Virtuous military. George Washington established the most Virtuous military in the history of the World with enforced Christian Ethics which produced real men like Patton.

They are replacing Christian Ethics with their promotion of sodomy (Vice) to create a military like the homosexual Brownshirts who had no problem brutalizing their own citizens and men and women.

Patton was even more revolted by the evil, atheist, sodomite Communists military.

The United States Marines. No greater friend, no worse enemy. Mess with the Marines and they will kick your ass so hard that your ancestors will feel it 10 generations back.

It’s not exactly a brand new ad campaign.

We are the United States Military. Our job is to protect and defend our citizens and our democracy. If you decide that you want to take us on, go for it. We will kill you, we will break everything you own, and in the end, you will finally understand why democracy is so deadly to despots like yourself.

Too bad that “Global Force” wasn’t able to deploy in Algeria the last three days when those seven Americans needed a “good” intervention. Snappy syrupy slogans can’t compensate for poor leadership.

I don't understand what's wrong with it. Are they, in fact, not a force for good? I think that concept generally applies to the U.S. military.

This report is right off of Breitbart’s Big Peace blog ...

“All Crew Leave US Navy Ship Stuck in Philippines”

- All 79 officers and crew of a U.S. Navy minesweeper stuck on a coral reef in the central Philippines have left the ship two days after efforts to free the vessel failed, the Navy said Saturday.

The ship ran aground Thursday while in transit through the Tubbataha National Marine Park, a coral sanctuary in the Sulu Sea, 640 kilometers (400 miles) southwest of Manila. There were no injuries or oil leaks, and Philippine authorities were trying to evaluate damage to the protected coral reef, designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

The U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet earlier on Friday said 72 of the crew of the USS Guardian were transferred for safety reasons to a military support vessel and a naval survey ship. The Navy said in a statement hours later that all 79 crew members, including the commanding and the executive officers, had left the stricken ship.

This has been their slogan for the past several years now. I don’t know why it’s bothering you now. Have you seen the Marine Corps ads with their helos full of AID packages?
