“...we just do.”
Funny thing is, I don’t disagree with anything that many of you have said in reply to my post. I know you’re all patriots and you speak with a burning desire for Americas’ survival. For that alone, I respect you all as brothers. Nonetheless, we’re going to need this military, long after Obama is gone. And as I see it, for a sailor, a soldier or marine who posts such a public defiance of our policy is going too far. We need to stick together. Obama is a blip on the radar.
Could we kick Syria’s ass? Yes. Could we kick Syria’s ass with Russsia backing them? We did it in Afghanistan. Could we kick Russia’s ass? Not without seriously diminishing returns when it comes to our so called “rebels” (see Alqueda). If we want to bomb the shit out of both sides, I’m for it. I think we will need to do just that, at some future time. These are complex decisions. No matter what I think, though, it isn’t up to a Chief to make that determination, at least not on social media.
