This is a Threat Matrix list documenting threats within and without. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.
I was talking with a friend today whose son is in the army. We have quite a few young men from our church in the service.
She said morale is SO low in the armed forces. Many of the guys can’t wait to get out. She said in boot camp nowadays, they aren’t allowed to make the guys follow orders. They aren’t getting trained right and it’s turning into every man for himself, there is not the camaraderie of old (well there is as far as the enlisted men can create it, but not as far as the culture instilled from the higher ups.) She was talking about how over in Afghanistan (and probably everywhere) they have to try to follow orders from both their COs and other COs from NATO, sometimes conflicting orders, and trying to sort out what they are really supposed to do is frustrating and dangerous. Then with all the “rules of engagement”, traitorous acts by locals who are supposed to be working with our military and then turn on them, etc. She said it’s just really, really dangerous now, even though an enlisted man’s life is always in danger, at least before you felt that the military had your back. No more.
It made me want to cry - thinking of our guys over there and what they are all going through. She said most of the guys her son knows can’t wait to get out, even though many loved the military and wanted to serve their country, now they just can’t get out fast enough.
It’s just one more thing Obama is destroying. I would hate to think what would happen if we faced a real threat closer to home. I would hope some of the old school military leaders would step up and kick out the new school politically correct brass and bring back discipline and order.
Pray for our troops.
Mesta, you are always right!
This is straight up treason! He has, from day one, abnegated his oath in office! He must be impeached!
