WRITTEN BY AMERICAN INFIDEL #1
Disappointed, really disappointed. In one word, this was the answer I gave to summarize what I thought of President Barack Obama to my debate professor. I couldn’t bear to watch live TV of Hillary Clinton spewing “her side” of the story recalling the tragic events and responses given in reference to the four dead Americans in Benghazi.
Then to rub salt in the wound, I find that the Obama administration wants to completely reshape our military, particularly our Marine Corps, into the vision of their politically correct Utopia.
The free pass that was given to the Obama administration on their response to Benghazi has stunned me. I am still amazed that no one has called out Clinton, Panetta or Obama with their pathetic response, or lack thereof, when the tragedy occurred. Really, we need time to observe events on the ground before we commit forces? I do not know of one enemy in North Africa or a Muslim country that would invoke fear into an amphibious Marine Corps Infantry Battalion. And to see Hillary Clinton shedding crocodile tears as a result of seeing those flag draped coffins! Our men in uniform see those every day over there.
Then giving the response to the American people that the terrorist attack was because of a video! Have you even seen the Muhammad video in question? It had the worst production value ever and is boring as shit to boot! We have video games being sold over in Pakistan with Americans shooting Al-Qeada (Black Ops). Muslims respond by simply pulling it off the shelves. No rioting or Americans killed there, Madam Clinton.
Our commanders see flag draped coffins every day over there, too. This is a result of the Obama administration’s weak defense policy. But Hillary Clinton is no stranger to all this bloodshed. Remember when she was First Lady and all those flag draped coffins came home from the USS Cole, Khobar Towers, the Federal Building in Oklahoma, Embassies in Tanzania, Kenya, Somalia, and our first World Trade Center Attack? Not to mention the other American deaths that I am sure have gone unreported. But now you come to tears, Mrs Clinton?
And how about the Secretary of Defense saying combat is now at safe enough levels to allow women to carry packs next to Devil Dogs? They already do in forward commanders “FET” or Female Engagement Teams. You’ve seen the same film clips that all media outlets show on TV with the coverage of female troops in action. Yeah, there are females already in the field. More forward than you are and making much more of a sacrifice. But we can now allow them the MOS of 03? A meat eater? The ones that decimate any enemy that they are faced against!
Our Marine Corps is the deadliest branch of the service as a result of our training and the sheer demand placed on the mind and body for the sole purpose of destroying whatever enemy we face. But these are just minor details! Putting women alongside male Marines is what this country really needs, right? We need not worry, right? The young troops in the field will find a way to make it work, right? In pushing females into combat roles, I hope all of our politically correct “leaders” are willing to shed tears when their flag draped coffins come home. Because, unless a female soldier can pass the same testing and training as her male counterparts, lives will be lost. At least give our Commanders time for the ink to dry on their policy letters regarding homosexuality before throwing another curve at them. They have a war to fight as much as you would like for them to focus on your next social experiment.
Here’s my message for President Obama and Leon Panetta in regards to placing women on the front lines of combat. I know a lot of men that can’t keep up and become a Marine, let alone an infantry man. One thing is for sure, gentlemen; I know a lot of female Marines that have a better chance of surviving in the dirt than the two of you pencil necks.
