Reid Blames Sequestration For Explosion That Killed 7 Marines (Oh for the Lord's sake......)
Patriot Update ^ | March 19, 2013

Posted on 03/20/2013 8:55:17 AM PDT by yoe

Just hours after an explosion killed seven Marines in his home state, Nevada Sen. Harry Reid used the fatal training accident as an opportunity to talk about the potential impact of the sequester on military readiness.

The Senate Democratic leader initially took to the floor Tuesday to mourn the deaths of the seven Marines, killed during a training exercise at Hawthorne Army Depot in Nevada.

“My thoughts are with those who are injured and of course the families of those who lost loved ones,” Reid said.

But then, after explaining that the Marines were at the depot for training, Reid went on to use the tragedy as a segue to talk about the importance of canceling the automatic budget cuts known as sequester.

I think "it was a combination of Global Warming and the Sequestration", is what he said?

Mark Levin slammed Reid yesterday for walking over the dead bodies of the Marines to further the Democrats political agenda.

Of course, he just couldn't bring himself to say "my prayers are for those..."

Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin on Tuesday absolutely excoriated Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) for implying on the Senate floor that the sequester was connected to the death of seven Marines at the Hawthorne, Nevada, Army depot earlier in the day.

“Harry Reid, you’re the lowest of the lowlives, you know that? You really are at the bottom of the sewer” (video follows courtesy Right Scoop with partial transcript).

One of the creepiest moments in the life of a grunt is the moment you hear someone planning you doing something, where some of you are almost certain to die.

And then you realize, these people are perfectly willing to kill you for the slightest political benefit. Our sociopathic liar government only sees your death as a political event, to either be hidden or exploited as their situation calls for.

Harry just gave us another example.

Like it or not military training, especially realistic military training, is a very dangerous undertaking.

If you read the original documents through out the 20th century you will find repeated mentions of injuries and death from training accidents. The bigger the weapon the more serious the injuries.

My heart and prayers go out to the Marines that were killed and injured.

My contempt goes out to Mr Reid and his fellow dimocrats.

Incompetence killed those Marines. All but the 2 operating the mortar should have been in a safe zone.

That is not surprising. Reid is a Democrat. Democrats have no morals, no principles, no soul, no ethics and bad character. The only thing they have is an unquenchable thirrst for power and to control others. Unfortunately for some of us on this forum [I used to say all of us on this forum,but that is no longer the case],TheUnited States of America is currently is made uo of a majotity of those who wish to be controled. The American Can Do spirit has changed to the "gimmie my freebies spirit". The majority of those who live in the United States of America have, as evidenced by the results of the 2012 election, have,like Esau, sold their birthright for a bowl of soup.

So, from this point in time forward, My FRiend, only be surprised when a Democrat does something good and decent.

I've driven through Hawthorne twice since 2010. Nice little town, with a significant amount of bunkers surrounding the highway coming up from the south.

They are certainly proud of their military there. I love the little park in the town with welded art out of old bombs (or maybe external fuel tanks - can't remember). There's even a AAA gun for the kids to play on.

Prayers up for these Marines.

I watched Reid make his statement on the news last night. Then a General came on and stated that the Marines did not yet know what had happened or what caused the tragedy.

Labeled a “tragic accident” within an hour, just like the 11/2001 plane crash in NYC....

Lots here are buying the Hussein administration’s explanation -— WHY?????

“Incompetence killed those Marines. All but the 2 operating the mortar should have been in a safe zone.”

Judgement based solely upon belief that the story provided is true.

Why do so many here have such faith in the Hussein administration’s explanations?

If it doesn't matter to the troops why should it matter to the rest. How many in the service voted for the prick. One is too many.

The left complains about the old republican white hairs? The only thing worse, is Reid, an old white haired male prostitute posing as a US Senator.
