    Iranian-supplied rockets killed as many as 15 U.S. troops per month in Iraq in the summer of 2011, and Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis had a plan to retaliate. The Obama administration denied his request. Six U.S. soldiers were killed in a single such attack in early June of 2011, with another three killed just weeks later. Mattis, then the commander of U.S. Central Command, had had enough and decided the U.S. must strike back before the Iranian rockets caused further bloodshed. In conjunction with then Ambassador to Iraq James Jeffrey, Mattis proposed a strike inside Iranian territory, according to...
  • Obama purged military of those who sought victory

    American Thinker ^ | September 10, 2016 | Daniel John Sobieski
    It was not hyperbole when GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump said that under resident Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the U.S. military had been "reduced to rubble" and left floundering without a coherent strategy or meaningful capability to win wars. It is a fait accompli, engineered by our commander-in-chief to reduce America's global footprint, an America he has profusely apologized for, and one he blames for all the world's ills. Almost as soon as he took office, resident Obama began a military purge not dissimilar to those routinely conducted by third-world despots, with the goal of eliminating voices...

    During last nightís Commander in Chief Forum on the USS Intrepid, Mr. Trump told moderator Matt Lauer, in reference to the War on ISIS, ďWell, the generals under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have not been successful,Ē Trump replied. ďI think under the leadership of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble. They have been reduced to a point where itís embarrassing for our country.Ē Mr. Trump is certainly correct. The generals have been reduced to rubble. Actually, they have been ground into space dust, for the value that they give to this Republic. Under...

    Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he felt President Obama ďdouble-crossedĒ him during his tenure over budget cuts to the Pentagon. In a Fox News report Friday that explored the presidentís approach to the military, Gates said Obama had promised him that there wouldnít be any ďsignificant changesĒ in the defense budget for a while. ADVERTISEMENT When asked by Fox whether Obama kept to his word, Gates replied, ďWell I think that began to fray. ĎFrayí may be too gentle a word.Ē According to the report, Gates was told to cut hundreds of billions of dollars from the defense budget...

    Looking at the case of Sergeant First Class Charles Martland, the highly decorated Green Beret who refused to stand by and do nothing when he was confronted with pure evil, one would think that as a result of how he faced down evil in Afghanistan that he would be given another medal to pin on his uniform. Unfortunately quite the contrary is the case. Instead of being rewarded for having the courage to do the right thing, Sergeant First Class Martland may well be facing the end of his military career. Martland, along with his former commander Captain Daniel Quinn...
  • No US apology after Iran frees sailors [According to VP Joe Biden]

    Iran has released 10 US sailors after holding them overnight, bringing a swift end to an incident that had rattled nerves days ahead of the expected implementation of a landmark nuclear accord between Tehran and world powers. Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said it had freed the sailors on Wednesday after determining they had entered Iranian territorial waters by mistake. The sailors had been detained aboard two US Navy patrol boats in the Gulf on Tuesday. "Our technical investigations showed the two US Navy boats entered Iranian territorial waters inadvertently," the IRGC said in a statement carried by state...
  • Hagel: The White House Tried to ‚ÄėDestroy‚Äô Me

    Jet-lagged from a long overseas trip, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel had just sat down with his wife for a quiet dinner at an upscale Italian restaurant in northern Virginia when his phone rang. It was the White House on the line. President Barack Obama wanted to speak with him. It was Aug. 30, 2013, and the U.S. military was poised for war. Obama had publicly warned Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad that his regime would face consequences if it crossed a ‚Äúred line‚ÄĚ by employing chemical weapons against its own people. Assad did it anyway, and Hagel had spent the day...

    Obama is Not in Mourning for Our Dead Marines and Sailor Submitted by Donald R. May on July 19, 2015 - 1:55am Barack Hussein Obama does not seem to be in mourning for the four Marines and one Sailor killed in Chattanooga by the Islamic Terrorist. Many flags across our nation are flying at half-staff, but not by order of President Obama. He did not order flags at the White House and other federal buildings to be flown at half-staff. Obama did make the effort to light the White House in rainbow colors to celebrate the recent Supreme Court ruling...

    A married Army general on Tuesday introduced his spouse at a Pentagon event that featured lots of top brass, including Defense Secretary Ashton Carter as the keynote speaker. What made this seemingly routine introduction noteworthy is that Brig. Gen. Randy S. Taylor introduced his husband, Lucas. ďMy husband Lucas is sitting up front here,Ē Gen. Taylor said of the man in the same row as Mr. Carter, Army Secretary John McHugh and other senior officials. He said Lucas has subjugated his own career to support the generalís frequent moves over an 18-year relationship.

    Justice: A Marine veteran has been held captive in Iran since August 2011, when he was taken prisoner while visiting family and charged with spying. Does President Obama hear his plea for unconditional freedom? With the exception of deserters like Bowe Bergdahl, those who put on a uniform and serve their country seem like afterthoughts to this administration, if they're thought of at all. Just ask Andrew Tahmooressi, the Marine sergeant allowed to languish 214 days in a Mexican jail for the crime of missing a highway exit. Or now, Amir Hekmati of Flagstaff, Ariz., a Marine vet who sits...
  • BREAKING: Obama Trying to STOP the US Army From Prosecuting Bergdahl

    03/28/2015 9:09:24 PM PDT · by Kevin in California · 120 replies
    President Barack Obama has certainly staked a lot on the fate of likely deserter Bowe Bergdahl. He sacrificed the lives of several of our men in uniform in a vain attempt to rescue him, then traded five Taliban terrorists from Guantanamo Bay for his release. Now, it appears the president is even willing to obstruct justice for Bergdahl. Recent reports indicate that senior Department of Defense officials are doing their best to poison the well for those prosecuting Bergdahl.

    Tuesday, at Defense Sec. Ash CarterĎs swearing-in ceremony, Biden got all touchy feely with Carterís wife, Stephanie. From the pictures, it looks like heís whispering sweet nothings into her right ear. Heís also getting a good whiff of her shampoo. Letís give him the benefit of the doubt: Perhaps he was trying to be comforting after her spill on the ice at the Pentagon this morning while she was accompanying her husband on his first day on the job.

    For the last nine years, the Military Times newspaper has surveyed an average of 2,300 active-duty service members. Their latest poll has just been released and concludes that ďObamaís popularity ó never high to begin with ó has crumbled, falling from 35 percent in 2009 to just 15 percent this year, while his disapproval ratings have increased to 55 percent from 40 percent over that time.Ē Much of the opposition to Obama has come from military members who believe he has been an inconsistent and flawed leader in foreign policy ó for example, his 2011 removal of all troops in...

    WASHINGTONó Ashton Carter, the former deputy defense secretary, is the leading candidate to become the next Pentagon chief, but senior officials said President Barack Obama wouldnít make an announcement Tuesday. The president could announce his pick for defense secretary later this week, a senior White House official said. Mr. Carter, who was out of town Tuesday, is seen as the likely choice, officials said. But the White House is continuing to look at other candidates, including former Navy Secretary Richard Danzig and former assistant Secretary of State Kurt Cambpell. Mr. Obama could still change his mind and opt for one...

    Breitbart ^ | 11/24/2014 | by JOEL B. POLLAK
    The New York Times reports that President Barack Obama is about to dismiss Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. The reason given? That the White House recognized that "the threat from the Islamic State would require a different kind of skills than those that Mr. Hagel was brought on to employ." In other words: Hagel was brought on to downgrade the military radically, but now the military turns out to be necessary, after all. Yet that cannot be the only reason, absent any sign that Obama is committing to a sudden, steep increase in the defense budget, and reversing the non-sequester...

    President Obama today saluted his Marine Corps guard with a coffee cup as he descended to stairs of his Marine One chopper after landing in New York City. The White House, either not caring about or not understanding the show of disrespect, actually posted video of the moment on Instagram. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foufSP5IoJ8 This is actually even worse than forgetting to salute, donít you think?
