ONE measure to gauge the health of a democracy’s leadership is by the way they treat the nation’s front-line forces, their military.
THINK of it this way: if hyper-disdain is heaped towards those who have sworn to protect the nation at all costs, surely citizens won’t fare any better. Agreed?
THUS, the following is more than required reading, and its lessons must be learned in full. Forthwith.
Commentary By Adina Kutnicki
LITTLE is more emblematic of the absolute disdain that HUSSEIN Obama and surrogates exhibit towards the U.S. military, aside from their very own words and deeds. In fact, without a shadow of a doubt, it has been proven that their very actions are both hostile and treacherous. Traitorous.
NOW, one would be foolish in the extreme to state such charges without requisite back up. Indeed. And, if anything, this investigative journalist is hardly stupid or reckless.
IN this regard, let’s separate the charge sheet into two sectors and build the case up from there.
SECTOR ONE: HOSTILITY TOWARDS MILITARY HEROES
WHO recalls Lieutenant Colonel Lakin, and the abuse he suffered for daring to question ‘Dear Leader’s’ birth bonafides? Well, as a recap (from Aug. 2012), the following is an excerpt:
“Officer’s Oath: Why My Vow to Defend the Constitution Demanded That I Sacrifice My Career” is Lt. Col. Terry Lakin’s moving first-hand account of faith and patriotism that led to court-martial, imprisonment and the stripping of all military rank and privileges, including his Army pension.
“Lakin, an Army flight surgeon, was court-martialed because he refused to obey deployment orders, arguing Barack Obama had not documented his eligibility for the presidency under Article 2, Section 1, of the Constitution.”
“What I do not understand and still don’t,” Lakin writes, “is why Obama did not just come forward with his key documents and be done with it. Instead, he ordered all of his important records to be kept under seal….”
BUT there’s more. Back in Dec. 2014, ISIS released a US-based targeted hit list with personal details of certain military personnel and their families. Yet, DHS (FED agencies) barely scratched the surface, instead, offering a pithy warning, but only after concerted backlash from military families!
MOST recently, have you heard about this travesty of injustice against an active duty soldier?
If the fact that the Obama Administration has blocked aging veterans from visiting the World War II memorial and denied death gratuity benefits for fallen warriors doesn’t seem to indicate contempt for our military, how about this most recent story?
Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance, a 28-year-old combat leader in the 82d Airborne Division from Celeste, Texas was recently found guilty of two counts of murder in Afghanistan and sentenced to 20 years in Ft. Leavenworth.
The story of First Lieutenant Lorance has not been covered by a single major media source.
In July 2012, Lorance was ordered to take command of a platoon in the southern Afghanistan province of Kandahar, a region where I also spent two and a half years training and advising the Afghan National Army. The platoon Lorance now commanded had lost its previous leader to enemy attack.
During a patrol in enemy territory, Lorance ordered a marksman to engage two unarmed Taliban fighters on a motorcycle operating as scout spotters.
In Afghanistan and Iraq, a common enemy tactic is for unarmed fighters on motorcycles with cell phones to track unit movements. In fact, enemy combatants had previously used the tactics against this same platoon.
Lorance, who was operating in a combat zone, saw the scout spotters and assessed them as a threat to his platoon. Aerial surveillance later backed up Lorance’s on-the-ground assessment.
It seems obvious that enemy scouts reporting a unit position and movements in order to facilitate an ambush would define “hostile intent.” But not according to the watered-down Rules of Engagement with which our warriors must contend.
In little more than a year, First Lieutenant Lorance was tried and sentenced to prison. Swift justice to be sure, but why then did it take four years to try and convict Nidal Malik Hasan, who fatally shot 13 and wounded more than 30 during his 2009 rampage at Ft Hood Texas?
The irony of the dilemma currently facing our troops, those who have volunteered to protect and defend our freedoms, is appalling. Shall they fight and kill the enemy but then risk imprisonment because of insidious rules by lawyers?
NOT only that, but aside from too many other active duty slaps to cite, what about the vets and the dastardly treatment by Obama Inc.? As such, in May 2014 it was proven: ‘Veterans deaths were an outgrowth of HUSSEIN Obama’s contempt for the military.’ Chargeable.
SECTOR TWO: SUPPORT OF THE ENEMY
ON the other hand, a polar opposite treatment – kid glove-like – is demonstrated re ISIS. So too, relative to Islamic jihad in toto.
STILL before we veer in the direction of ISIS, what lessons can be learned about the release of top Taliban terrorists in ‘exchange’ for a deserter, a Muslim convert too? Moreover, several soldiers were sacrificed in the hunt for Bergdahl, and an investigative journalist was murdered to boot. Say what? Peer within.
INCONTROVERTIBLY, ISIS is rising, yet DHS’s Jeh Johnson and Gen. Dempsey assess otherwise. Huh?
BACK in Sept. 2014, this site assessed that ISIS was deep into specific planning stages to attack America, as counter-terror contacts kept dropping this and that hint. Thus, readers were dutifully warned via a tag team interview at Inquisitr, one which was set up by this investigative journalist. Mind you, at the very same time, Sept. 2014, Jeh Johnson demurred otherwise:
Johnson is the latest in a string of top US officials to concede that the jihadist army currently in control of much of eastern Syria and northern and central Iraq is not targeting the US at present, despite beheading two captured American journalists….
SEGUEING to the top Gen. and his co-opted command, can you imagine such insanity? Well, ‘it be’ true.
According to General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, losing Ramadi to ISIS “is not symbolic in any way.” Why? Because “It’s not been declared, you know, part of the caliphate on one hand or central to the future of Iraq,” he reasoned. What will it take for the Gen. to understand that any territory taken over by ISIS becomes part of caliphate?
BLAH blah doesn’t even come close to describing such dangerous gibberish. He has lost his mind, aside from being clearly co-opted by an Islamist-in-Chief! Indeed, the guideposts were all leading in this Orwellian direction, now that patriotic Generals (and top officers) have been purged from the Pentagon. The reasons for the putsch become clearer every day.
MIND you, this is the same spineless, limp-wristed Dempsey who opined, “ISIS will win”! Alas, which is it: are they rising or not? Schmuck, make up your mind!
NOT only that, but with Obama Inc.’s Generals literally falling over themselves to bow down and prostrate before ISIS (and attendant Islamic terror offshoots), is it any wonder that ISIS IS rising….going from strength to strength?
ALAS, another tool and toadying fool, as retired Marine General John Allen caves to Islam and Barack HUSSEIN Obama! Besides, whatever happened to “men with chests”, those who are able to stand up to America’s enemies, whether they sit in the White House or lay waste to innocents all over the world?
UNDER this set of facts, let there be no doubt: Commanders, be they from the military or the high level political realm, must exert authority and ooze take charge personas. If not, who is going to follow, respect AND fear them? Yes, a pussy cat leader won’t last long, that’s for sure. But this descriptor is a far cry from a dictator-like personality. We all know to whom this reference is alluding….
THAT off the table, the Pentagon’s highest ranks have been gutted of national patriots, despite their pinned medals and puffed up chests. The remaining have agreed to toe to his Islamic diktats and that is that. Plain as day.
According to Allen, to defeat ISIS:
The solution is to “celebrate” Islam and show our “profound respect” for it.
“As we seek to expose ISIS’ true nature,” Allen told the gathering on Monday, “we must also tell a positive story, one that highlights our respect – our profound respect for Islam’s proud traditions, its rich history, and celebration of scholarship and family and community.” “We must work with clerics and scholars and teachers and parents to tell the story of how we celebrate Islam, even as we show that ISIS perverts it.”
Allen said that ISIS propaganda serves both to attract recruits and “perverts the innocent.”
“It is only when we contest ISIS presence online and deny the legitimacy of its message – the message that it sends to vulnerable young people – and as we expose ISIS for the un-Islamic, criminal cult of violence that it really is, it is only then that ISIS will be truly defeated.”
Similarly infected, the schmuck from U.S. European Command Commander, NATO Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Philip M. Breedlove had this to say….
“The best way to beat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria’s success at recruiting Westerners is for moderate Muslims to step up and counter the message,” the commander of NATO forces in Europe said Monday.
U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove said the extremist group’s ability to recruit foreign fighters to come to Syria and Iraq is a “real problem” for the alliance. And it is compounded by concerns about “lone wolf” terror attacks by fighters returning from the Middle East and others inspired by the group’s ideology.
“It’s hard to address recruiting until we address those hearts and minds,” Breedlove told reporters at the Pentagon. “We need to hear the voices of moderate Muslims in the mosques….”
ALAS, into this deadly quagmire one can find a preponderance of vets (active duty soldiers alike), many of whom are beyond outraged at the limp-wristed treatment shown to the enemy. On the other side of the spectrum, they are forced to witness a hyper-disdain (and worse) meted out to US military forces. Unfathomable.
EVEN more so, they recognize genocide when confronted with it. Many (civilians alike) are truly appalled at the lack of fight taken to those who commit horrific massacres. In other words, while ISIS (Brotherhood offshoots, Islamists of all stripes) slaughter Christians and minorities at will, they also realize that the same killing fields will reach America, if not stopped by US armed forces!
AS such, bands of brothers are ‘up-in-arms’ and are making their voices/views known. One such military lion, John Preston, a Marine, expresses himself through his music, emblematic in ‘This Is War’
CONSEQUENTIALLY, it is painfully clear that the wayward Commander-in-Chief (and surrogates) does not have the military’s back, be they active duty or vets. Extrapolating further, hide nor hare, in their sworn duty to protect the nation at large.
RESULTANT, rip a page out of Texas’s playbook and be prepared to do what must be done, regardless of cartoon-fests or what not.
FOREWARNED is forearmed! Take no prisoners!
