Ok, if this is what they want, then this is what they're gonna get.
Just keep doing that good civilian police work, General. Our civilian leadership doesn’t have the will to fight and is prepared to have its authorities call your soldiers “civilian” “males” and keep them unemployed after their return. Welcome to the decline of Rome 2.0.
And yes; he already should have a 'visitor' by now. . .Let the 'consult' begin.
Our ancestors were more honest, courageous and hard working.
Denazification, cumulative review. Report, 1 April 1947-30 April 1948.
IMHO, God’s Providence is the solution, but there are other enemies within our midst who are enemies of Christ first and are seeking to use Islam as a tool to maneuver and promote all things antiChristian.
In the immediate situation while we are in country, murder (and all felonious acts) must simply be met by immediate capital punishment under martial law.
I do believe that is not true....Vietnam saw many IED deaths.
Totally. If they are serious about Islam, they hate us and are our enemies.
Well, the abortion in the White House won;t even ACKNOWLEDGE that ANY Mulsims are involved in terrorism.
Pick your poison.
I’ll take Romney. At least he is an American.
Well, at least it fits on a bumper sticker.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
You are a real thinker, and believer. Send in the missionaries with plenty of Military guards, and make them listen. The Word of God will do the rest. We should also show them what love is. Jesus did say love your enemies. Love breaks down every barrier. Love and The Word of God are the two most powerful things on earth, not bullets and bombs. The war would be over and the people would be set free. There may be some casualties when armed enemies break through, but those believers that die would be ushered into heaven with crowns.
“Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, says he’s “mad as hell” about the increasing number of insider attacks, in which Afghan soldiers and police murder the Americans who are trying to train them. “
While he gets credit for being “mad as hell” now (Hoping for actual action as a result - but it’s not clear he will act), where was COL. John Allen? Where was LtCol. John Allen on this subject?
One would have thought that stupid ROE would have been noticed before he became a General Officer - unless, of course, he just kept his mouth shut and let troops under his command be murdered rather than treat the enemy as the enemy until he was selected for General.
How many better officers than he were denied the promotion to general he got because they, perhaps, made too many waves internally about letting soldiers under their command get murdered - and were quietly put out to pasture as an 05 or 06 as a result?
He shows a definitive lack of generalship. Then again, all too many of them do these days when politics trumps leadership in getting to that lofty rank.
Monday’s news..we need to get out now . its all politics and securing drug traffic for kingpins
Then, you must start to kill.
You must kill them by the tens of thousands, destroy their houses, destroy their likelihoods, destroy their families. Death, massive death is the solution to the problem.
As a Veteran, I am no more incensed and the next guy over what has been happening in regards to the ROE situation going back before Obama came into power. All of it is a steaming pile of crap to the highest order.
But this General has essentially signed his own resignation by giving this interview. Granted, he is a commander on the field of combat, but he also holds very close and dear the oath he gave without reservation.
But there comes a time when a man has got to do what a man has got to do. He is blowing the whistle in a big way just as LTC Allen West did. All the while knowing his actions to do what only he could to put those under his commands safety on a higher order than the controlled orders he swore to uphold and execute.
I will cut him a little slack in knowing he had the guts to administratively terminate his career in an effort to bring to light just how bad the situation is. With the high hopes I have on an administration change very soon, I say he may be far more valuable in the field to execute a totally new set of ROE directives come January 21st.
The only reason that Dempsey avoided being fragged was because he was never in Vietnam. His first combat action was as an XO during Desert Storm. Never in the trenches, never in the breach. Rot in hell you faggot loving SOB!
