The castration of the American military – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

George Patton was caught urinating into the Rhine River in 1945.    People cheered Patton for killing the enemy and visiting hell upon them.  Now, four Marine snipers are going to be criminally charged for urinating on dead Taliban terrorists.

 From Fox News:

 The four Marines seen in a video that purports to show them urinating on dead bodies in Afghanistan have been identified and will face charges soon, a senior military official told Fox News. 

The Marines are from the 3rd battalion, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force out of Camp Lejeune, N.C. A fifth individual, the camera operator, apparently has not been identified. 

Meanwhile, the Marine Corps has appointed a three-star general to decide what disciplinary action to take against the four Marine snipers. 

 Lt. Gen. Thomas Waldhauser will name another officer to lead an internal Marine Corps investigation. That investigation will be in addition to a criminal probe already under way by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Waldhauser, who is commander of Marine Corps Forces Central Command, will determine how to proceed once both investigations are completed. 

NCIS Communications Director Maryann Cummings also said her department’s probe is still “in its very early stages.”

 This is what happens when we have liberals in charge.  What are they going to do next, require sensitivity training for snipers when they kill someone?

 When you absolutely, positively need to destroy the enemy, you send in the Marine Corps.  The purpose of the Marine Corps is to go to some very bad places and deal with very bad people. 

 Marine Corps snipers are a very special type of Marine.  While Marines will often engage in small unit combat, snipers by their nature are asked to do something very specific.   They reach out and deliberately kill individual targets.  Regular Marines in combat may or may not know if they killed someone and sometimes if they do, it is in hand to hand combat.

 Snipers reach out at a long distance and kill someone.  They do not give the other guy a fighting chance.  Their job is to reach out and destroy someone. 

 These Marines were almost certainly in combat.  They saw the horrors of war and saw what the enemy did to non-combatants and what they did to other Marines.  It is a safe bet they all lost friends, not to hand to hand combat but to IED’s and other booby traps. 

 What liberals do not understand is the purpose of the military is to go and kill the enemy.  It is not to do public relations or nation building.  You designate the enemy and you send the military in to destroy that enemy.

 When they are done, sometimes the Marines need to blow off some steam.  We ask them to do something that we do not ask most Americans to do. 

 These Marines peed on the corpses of dead Taliban.  The Taliban are war criminals.   They torture and kill.  They will not stand on the battlefield in uniform and engage the military.  They hide behind civilians. 

 Screw them. 

 Those Marines were asked to go and serve their country and kill our enemies.  They did. 

 Give them a medal and send them back to work.

Priorities – Tea Party Nation

Priorities – Tea Party Nation.

Running the American military is one of the specific powers given to the President and his administration.   Of all the things the Obama regime is currently worried about, their current priority really takes the cake.

 What is it?

 The thing the Obama regime is most worried about right now is not the gutting of the size of the American military.   It is not the reduction in the capabilities to defend America.

 What they are most worried about now is a video that has surfaced showing American Marines urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban.

 In the greater scheme of things, the actions of those Marines falls under the heading of, you should not have done that. 

 And there is where it ends.

 But not for the Obama regime.   Leon Panetta, Obama’s Secretary of Surrender, called Afghan President Hamid Karzai and pledged a full investigation.   Hillary Clinton, Obama’s Secretary of Appeasement is “totally dismayed.”  The Commandant of the Marine Corps has directed the Naval Criminal Investigative Service to put its “best agents” on the case. 

 Perhaps there is a better use for the NCIS agents.  They could be at work trying to prevent the next Ft. Hood. 

 Hamid Karzai is outraged and described the video as “completely inhumane.”  Funny, most sane people usually reserve that description for things like beheadings, torture, throwing acid on women and child rape.  Those are all things the Taliban do all the time.  Karzai is silent on them. 

 If we had a real American in the White House he would tell Karzai to shut the hell up.  Karzai should remember that if it were not for the “completely inhumane” Americans like those Marines, his buddies in the Taliban would probably waste no time in separating his empty head from the rest of his body.

 The Marines involved in the video have not been identified.  But, we can make some educated guesses about what they were doing.  They were probably in combat recently.  They may have even been in combat with those Taliban whose bodies are shown in the video.  It is also a safe bet they have not only lost friends to the Taliban but they have probably seen the atrocities the Taliban visit on anyone who disagrees with Islam.

 These Marines urinated on the bodies of dead enemies. 

 So what? 

 Someone was dumb enough to video it and they were dumb enough to let them be videoed. 

 Tell them not to do that again and move on.

 The real story here is the need to win in Afghanistan.  It is not to surrender, as Obama wants us to do.  The real story is the Taliban leaders that Obama wants to release from Guantanamo.  Several of them are wanted for war crimes.  They are all top terrorist leaders who, if they are released, will rejoin the fight.  The real issue is how many Americans will die because Obama wants to release some of the world’s most dangerous terrorists prior to his surrender in Afghanistan.

 Mean while, the big story is that four or five Marines peed on some dead Taliban.

 Who the hell cares?

Irrational Behavior – Oliver North – Townhall Conservative

Irrational Behavior – Oliver North – Townhall Conservative.

WASHINGTON — For most of the year, irrational behavior is a natural state in our nation’s capital. This is a place where potentates and politicians, lobbyists and legislators and the elite and the lowly routinely say and do completely irrational things.

We also have come to expect that irrational behavior takes a brief hiatus when Congress goes home on recess and the president of the United States heads out of town on vacation. This year is the exception that proves the rule. POTUS may be playing golf on Martha’s Vineyard and Congress may be out of town, but this week, irrational behavior disorder — “IBD” for short — went viral, here and around the globe.

The Obama family started the IBD epidemic by setting off on their “working vacation” with two separate U.S. Air Force flights from Washington to the Massachusetts coast, requiring hundreds of military personnel, Secret Service agents and support staff to cancel or abbreviate leave. No one has figured out yet how much this little caper has cost the taxpayers.

On Aug. 20, just as the first family was getting into the swing of things on their little island paradise, Libyan rebels launched their own version of a “Thunder Run” into Tripoli. The Transitional National Council promptly caught a case of IBD and announced it had “liberated Libya from the dictator” Moammar Gadhafi. In Benghazi, the TNC’s “chairman,” former Gadhafi “justice minister” Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, told the international media that the rebels had “captured three of Gadhafi’s sons” and “surrounded Gadhafi’s Bab al-Aziziya palace” in Tripoli and that “escape is impossible.” We also were told, “All of the country will be in the hands of the TNC very shortly.” Turns out it was another case of IBD.

The rebel advance — and the anticipated demise of the murderous Moammar — was briefly celebrated with exuberance in our household. Back in 1987, Gadhafi sent his goons to kill us. Thanks to the FBI and special agents of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, his thugs missed their prey. We certainly aren’t going to miss him.

As it turns out, our dose of IBD was short-lived compared with the case caught by the White House spin doctors on Martha’s Vineyard. They wanted the American people to focus on the “improving economy.” On Sunday morning, CBS ran a prerecorded interview with President Obama, in which he acknowledged “an unemployment rate that is still too high” and then baldly claimed that the administration has “actually made the right decisions” and that he expects “to be judged a year from now on whether or not things have continued to get better.”

It’s the “continued to get better” part that confirms a diagnosis of severe IBD, compounded by rhetorical euphoria syndrome, or RES. When Obama was sworn in as our 44th president, the unemployment rate was about 7.5 percent. It’s now 9.1 percent. Millions of Americans have lost their homes and are out of work. Some experts say the housing market has yet to hit bottom. American manufacturing productivity continues to drop. U.S. financial and commodity markets are on a roller coaster, and our government’s credit rating has been downgraded.

That’s not exactly what a re-election campaign strategist wants us to be thinking about. On Monday, after British Prime Minister David Cameron announced he was “cutting short” his holiday “to address the crisis in Libya,” the O-Team trotted POTUS off the golf course so he could tell us that “the future of Libya is now in the hands of the Libyan people.” Obama did not mention his March 22 pledge that the military operations he had authorized would be over in “a matter of days and not weeks.”

It turns out that all of this was more IBD and untreated RES. By Wednesday, when Libyan rebels succeeded in their sanguinary fight to capture Gadhafi’s compound in the heart of Tripoli, the despot had disappeared. His palace was looted, but the megalomaniac who ruled Libya and terrorized the world for seven days short of 42 years had fled.

With Gadhafi still in hiding, U.S. officers say depots full of Libyan weapons — including man-portable surface-to-air missiles — may already be in the hands of radical Islamic terrorists. Stockpiles of nuclear materials and precursor chemicals for making nerve agents and mustard gas have yet to be recovered by French and British special operations personnel. And Pentagon planners are looking at options in case Libya descends into anarchy. One officer describes such a scenario as “Somalia on steroids.”

Obama supporters now claim his policy of “leading from behind” has been vindicated by the demise of the Gadhafi dictatorship. Though the regime finally has collapsed, only those diagnosed with irrational behavior disorder believe that the people of Libya will realize the president’s promise of “a peaceful transition to democracy” any time soon.
