    I don’t think the intent of this article rather long winded article is to advocate a return to the peacetime draft. I do think it makes several good points about the unintended consequences of an all volunteer military.

    There’s a fine line between an all volunteer military driven by patriotic feeling and a mercenary army driven by self interest with a general feeling of detachment from the society it serves.

    I agree.

    It’s getting old to have prog criminal politicians shred our freedoms at home and weaken us abroad, and “our guys” are more interested in making sure the game is played rather than going after the weasels.

    Just you wait, the next President, even if he has an “R” after his name, will say it’s time to move on for the good of the country, and all the crimes Obama and company have perpetrated will be forgotten, because it’s the classy thing to do.

    BS. The time for country club Republicans with their country club rules has passed.

  • “Take Your Best Shot”, Was The Marine Guarding The Canada National War Memorial Real?

    M1911A1 to nuconvert

    What’s really sad here is that there are so many stories and pictures of phonies out there that when I see an old timer sporting a very colorful chest, my first instinct isn’t immediately one of admiration and respect, it’s one of suspicion and a desire not to be taken in by a fraud.

    AFAIK, this man is the real deal. I retired as a MSgt out of the USMCR, and the uniform and the decorations look right. The supporting documents look right, and there are references to this man online as having written about his experiences during Vietnam.

    If he’s out there in front of that memorial in uniform as a retired Marine, I’d say that is his lawful right to wear that uniform while engaged in what amounts to a military event in an allied nation. I also think he’d love to use that sword on any Islamic lunatic who attacked him.

    It’s too bad that in this day and age of Marine Corps Commandants padding resumes (General Amos), we all feel we have to confirm that an old Marine doing something like this is what he claims to be.

    Hell, I’m too pudgy to fit in my blues a decade after I got out, and if I ever get slim enough to wear them again I’d feel like I’d need to have my SRB handy to justify the modest awards I rate...and even if I could wear the uniform and provide the documentation, I’m pretty damn sure that I’d catch Hell for being “just a reservist” anyway, like that Canadian soldier the Jihadi killed at the memorial.

    I think what the Major is doing is great. If it turns out he’s not what he says, it’ll be a shame, but unless that happens I’m not going to let the phonies cast a shadow on it.

    I’d say on this one they are right, but not because of the credibility of the looney tunes lefty protest group involved.

    The Justice Dept. has probably been slowly letting the cat out of the bag. I think it’s in the belief that the “shock” of no indictment will be softened by the leaked information regarding the forensics, witnesses and outcome.

    I’d guess that the administration wants there to be rage before election day, but as little violence as possible. They’ve gotten all the political points they can out of it, and are afraid of getting tarred by any rioting that may occur, and to my mind that would be justifiable. They initially fanned the flames and are now afraid of the fire they helped start, or at the very least looked the other way instead of pouring water on the issue when it started.

    I’d guess that in exchange for the timing of the announcement, the Feds won’t fight the no-bill of Wilson.

    Just guesses on my part, but if it was just a matter of gathering and judging the facts, they’d announce the grand jury decision before election day. At this point, why on earth should they wait, for new information?

    Unlike the Trayvon Martin fiasco, this one is pretty cut and dried...Wilson killed Brown in a lawful manner, and there’s loads of evidence and witnesses to prove it. Zimmerman had little enough of either, and the jury still saw through the BS that the media was putting out.

    I have always loved the lines of a GI 1911 or 1911A1. Most commercial variants and copies are also aesthetically pleasing, but some of the more recent versions have been altered a little too much for the sake of altering, IMHO.

    This thing, however, looks like it fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down before it came to rest in a murky puddle of hideousness.

    You don’t put people on trail if there is no evidence to support charging them. That’s what the Grand Jury is determining.

    Shyster Crump and the other race-grievance need charges to be filed so they can get the big payday. They could care less about right and wrong, guilt or innocence.

    It’s believable.

    It’ll be even more believable later, because there will be zero consequences for the morons in law enforcement and the judicial system who did this.

    If the cop who led this raid and the paper pusher who signed off on it get bankrupted and/or go to jail then it’s one thing, but dollars to donuts the taxpayers will pay and the neanderthals who authorised and executed this crime will skate.

    Good cops are heroes. Bad cops need punished all the more severely because of it.

    Libs have no clue about military culture, or how offensive that gesture was to somebody who understands or has lived a life of military traditions and culture. The fact that the clowns in the White House thought it was suitable for Instagram raises it from pathetic ignorance to a slap in the face for those who wear, or have worn the uniform.

    I told somebody who didn’t “get what the big deal was” to imagine if Bush had said to one of his black Secret Service agents, “Boy, go fetch me some coffee.”

    It’s the same sort of insulting insensitivity.

    Ha! What makes it better is that he knows I’m an OIF vet, so he assumes that I supported everything about the way Bush the Younger handled Iraq and Afghanistan.

    IMHO, we should have kicked butt and left, pronto. Nation building in Islamic countries is a for the birds, and we were fools to try. Just show them that any trouble they cause will be repaid swiftly and in kind, but a hundredfold.

    F22s and PGM are fine, but in a way it’s all self defeating. It’s a show of how limited and measured our response always is, even if it’s tactically brilliant.

    It doesn’t accomplish the strategic goal of convincing the population that tolerates these nutjobs that they should quit supporting them, either directly or through inaction.

    I think that if we unloaded a few thousand tons of dumb bombs on a couple of major cities, ala Hamburg or Tokyo, it would do more to deter the Jihad impulse than a whole decade of precision strikes.

    Sherman was right. War is Hell, and you cannot refine it, even with laser guided munitions.

    Yeah, it’s obviously stacked against the younger franchises, but hey, but when you are talking all time greatness that’s a factor.

    As a Seahawks fan I’m pretty sure that Curt Warner and Kenny Easley at their prime would hang with the all time greats, but their careers are not in the same league as the more well known icons of other teams. That’s why they aren’t in the HOF or more well known.

    The Seattle franchise as a whole ain’t a patch on Da Bears or Green Bay, or even their current great rival, San Francisco. I’m ok with that, and I’m just enjoying the current tides of Seahawks fortune, but who knows what next Sunday will bring?

    M1911A1 to xuberalles

    Duh. It’s not about the justice, it’s about the payout and the power.

    “All we want is an arrest” will become the Brown attorney mantra now, because that opens the door for the wrongful death lawsuits. Lawyer Crump doesn’t need a win at trial to hit the jackpot, he needs a city and insurance company scared of bad press and rioting, and he’ll settle.

    There is no justice at play here. It’s about money for the lawyers, money for the media who gain ratings and sales from the discord, and power for politicians and professional race hustlers like Jackson and Sharpton who whip up tribal fears and rage and a desire for revenge.

    There’s no motivation for this to be dealt with in a fair, rational way, unless you are the cop involved or an idealistic outside observer.

    Just go look at some of the comments regarding this autopsy report on some of the mainstream news sites. There are knuckleheads saying this proves the cop executed Brown. Facts are meaningless. Truth, logic and justice are not invited or wanted at this circus.

    We are a year past the exoneration of George Zimmerman, and the facts of that case are of no cultural importance. Only the meme of the “murdered” unarmed black teen remains.

    Facts are for suckers. Laws are only important when extorting money from deep pockets. It’s all about making the hate pay.

    M1911A1 to Jack Hydrazine

    I’ll try.

    Officer sees Brown and others walking on the street. They match the description given of those involved in a strong arm robbery recently committed in the same area. Cop initiates contact. Brown fights officer, getting inside the vehicle and there is a struggle for the cop’s sidearm. Gun goes off in vehicle. Brown retreats, then advances on officer. Officer fires multiple shots, killing Brown.

    Brown’s accomplice at the robbery peddles a story that has Brown on his knees surrendering to cop who then executes them. Media portrays Brown as good kid headed to college. Riots follow, with a police response. Feds and State get involved, put pressure on local cops to back off. Media focus on optics of cops in military gear vs. rioters and assumption that Brown was killed unjustly. President shoots off mouth with a statement that tends to encourage those thinking cop was in the wrong.

    Local cops release the video of the robbery that tends to support their guy as behaving reasonably. Photos of Brown flashing gang signs on his social media surface. Witness claiming execution is also on the video of the robbery, calling his testimony into question. Second hand account of cop’s version published.

    Video surfaces that has a conversation in the background that has a witness, not knowing he’s being recorded, saying that Brown was headed back at the cop when he was shot. Tends to match the second hand account of cop. Physical evidence backs up cop, most notably shell casing in car.

    All the while media beats drums of racism and injustice, often printing or broadcasting inflammatory assumptions. Usual cast of race hustlers arrives, Sharpton, Jackson, New Black Panthers. Brown family retains same attorney who handled the Trayvon Martin media circus.

    It’s essentially Feds, State, media and Black Victim Industry vs. local cops and cop who did the shooting. Black Panthers call for death of cop and DOJ does nothing. Release of evidence tending to support cop called unhelpful and inflammatory by State and Feds. Media releases address of cop, along with dirt on his parents. Slowly, local officials who aren’t cooperating with DOJ and State being put out of the way.

    Best source for information besides FR is The Conservative Treehouse. They did some amazing digging during the Saint Trayvon farce and the Brown shooting seems to be playing out in almost exactly the same way, except that the cop has up till now had allies within his department. How long that will last with the pressures being brought down on them remains to be seen.

    So Lois Lerner went to extraordinary lengths to make sure that the hard drive was unreadable. The IT guys at the CI division said “bad sectors” make the information unrecoverable, so they took an item that was pertinent to an ongoing investigation and destroyed it.

    Got it. The IRS made a paper trail, in only this case, unlike any other typical hard drive failure, that showed that the drive was beyond recovery, and then destroyed it and scattered the remnants to the winds.

    “We determined you should not have any evidence based on our own in house investigation, documented our efforts to cover our asses and then destroyed it.”

    It was important enough to document in a special way, but not important enough not to destroy.

    Yeah, it’d be nice to think that some young officers or SNCOs who are making a career of it would have the stones to back these former enlisted publicly, but it’s asking a Hell of a lot for very little tactical advantage.

    These young men who are speaking out seem to have it covered pretty well. Throwing out a career just to say “Me too” doesn’t make sense, especially if they are even one step removed from what went down. Why self immolate like LtCol Lakin just to make some noise?

    I think the fact that the administration hasn’t trotted out somebody still in uniform to contradict the former soldiers speaks volumes. I’m pretty sure if they had some SgtMaj or field grade Officer who was in that chain of command willing to call these guys a bunch of mutinous malingerers, they’d have a microphone and a big, bright stage set up pretty quick.

    Wow.

    The protester is on thin ice both legally and as a former Marine wearing part of the uniform while protesting. If the ball, hook and bird is removed he’s on more defensible ground, but I can’t support the idea of wearing parts of the uniform while protesting. I was against Kokesh and crew doing it when they protested against the war, and I can’t just switch because I think the protester has his heart in the right place.

    The Sergeant Major is way out of line on several levels. Looks like the law sees it that way, since he was booked. As a senior Marine, you have to question his judgement.

    When he gets out of his vehicle off base, in uniform and essentially counter protests, he’s breaking the same rules he’s trying to enforce, if that was his intention. In his case, while on active duty and while in uniform, the rules regarding political activity aren’t even somewhat murky, like they are for discharged vets or civilians.

    As to race, who knows? I can’t see what’s in an individual heart from that video, besides barely controlled anger. Maybe he is pissed off at the wearing of part of the uniform while protesting and that’s were it begins and ends. He may be blindly supporting Obama because of race, but the guy protesting may be against Obama because of race. I can’t tell from the video and the story.

    I’m aware of the overwhelming support Obama gets from blacks, but I’m not going to ascribe that motive to the SgtMaj here unless he declares it. I’m not willing to ignore the racial component that’s likely to exist, but I’m not going to automatically apply it, either.

    It’s pretty depressing to see two Marines, former or not, locking horns because of the ineptitude of Obama. Like that old vet said at the D-Day ceremony, “it’s not that we don’t respect the CIC, it’s just that he makes it so hard to do so.”

  • Obama Official: Bergdahl Worthy of Sympathy if Joined Taliban to Protest Platoon Leaders

    The guy is a legit combat vet, and a damn good writer. He now is a PR man with a vested interest in the Obama Regime.

    He’s made his mark with his “cynical” view of of the US military and the war in Iraq.

    He’s entitled to his opinion. He could be right, everybody else in that unit might be covering for “bad leadership”, because NCOs and rank and file soldiers are well known for slavish devotion to lousy shavetails and Captains, even long after they get out.

    Bergdahl may have been playing badminton while a prisoner instead of getting his fingers cut off because his captors were sympathetic to his issues with bad platoon or company leadership.

    Monkeys might also fly out of my butt at any moment.

    Beneath contempt. Lower than whale turds. Absolutely amazing.

    My little part of the war was over years ago, and this Bergdahl crap has sure brought it back front and center.

    I’m a little stressed out myself by all this. Hearing about know nothing dung beetles rolling a protective ball of verbal excrement around the treason their feckless leader let slip when he was trying get us simpletons to cheer for his “POW” release gets me a tad upset.

    He isn’t fit to look at the men he just slandered, much less slander them.

    Stressed? He doesn’t know what that means, but if this crap keeps coming, his ilk might find out.

    Yup, that’s where I was born again, USMC fashion, a decade after you.

    May the stupid yellow footprints never fade!

    A long time ago, I’d agree with you, that the farce would be called off.

    Now, I’m pretty sure the show will go on, and those who question it will be “gaslighted”...they’ll be told nothing is wrong, and that they are crazy for questioning it.

    It’s been that way for a few years now.
