With the President poised to strike in Syria and the Congress set to vote on the issue the week of Sep. 9, the debate about U.S. military intervention in the two-year-old civil war is already happening amongst the American public.
Some Americans have made their voices known to their representatives, while many others have said the U.S. should stay out of the conflict, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Rebellion in the ranks...Obama to purge again.
That was my first thought, too...
Freedom costs a buck o’ five.
To justify the return of the Draft.
Now, that’s crafty!
Totally inappropriate. He shouldn’t be making political statements in uniform.
“Totally inappropriate. He shouldnt be making political statements in uniform.”
His commanders do, so why can’t he since that law is no longer enforced? It is his ass that is on the line.
So your argument is that two wrongs make a right?
He’s hiding his face for a reason, he knows he shouldn’t be doing this.
I think it’s appropriate when the boss wants you to kill for Allah.
I worry for the guys with the fruit salad. The NSA will find out who they are.
“So your argument is that two wrongs make a right?
Hes hiding his face for a reason, he knows he shouldnt be doing this.”
You wrongly assume it is wrong. You also wrongly assume he is hiding his face in some kind of shame. He is hiding because he can be arrested.
He has every right to speak out against illegal activities of his commanders including his Commander in Chief.
The armchair generals who want a war should hike up their big girl panties and go fight on their own dime. Our soldiers shouldn’t fight for Al Qeada and the country is flat ass broke.
Question: Why do so many of these notes have the exact same text?
So they should just shut up and follow orders no matter how unlawful. Nuremburg comes to mind for some reason.
“You wrongly assume it is wrong. You also wrongly assume he is hiding his face in some kind of shame. He is hiding because he can be arrested.”
I think he’s hiding his face because he’s violating the UCMJ, not due to shame.
He does not have the right to protest in uniform, he signed up for service.
What illegal activities are you speaking of?
