    He tried to keep it in non-political terms, but basically what he’s saying is O needs to give those Marines the word and let them do their job. They’re warriors that want to do what they were trained to do.

    He made it very apparent that everyone is sick and tired of the ‘chains’. Such a waste of time, training, money, not to mention the lives lost while ISIS goes unrestrained.

    Good find, Nox.

    I hope that many of the American public is paying attention to those Marines being surrounded. Any blood spilled there will be on Obama’s head. And more than just “releasing” them to go to work, we’d better be prepared to give them whatever support they need to either overcome the attackers or to exit the area.

      Sadly, the lamestream media has been largely silent over this looming disaster.

      Indeed, this would fall squarely at Zero’s feet. We can only hope that Pentagon REMFs will sound the bells and demand the necessary support. We sure can’t rely on Putt doing the right thing. He would sacrifice anyone for his ambitions without so much as a care.

    Lutrell is spot-on. I’d bet my last dollar Obama’s ROE’s have their hands tied. Time for THEM to “pick and choose” like their asshat-in-chief does. Their very lives depend on it. We KNOW Obama could give a rat’s ass less about them, and I think THEY know it as well.

    • Hardnox says:

      Indeed. You can also bet the ROE’s will be dismissed if the shit hit the fan. The Marines above any other branch are disgusted with Putt and know that he only regards them as cannon fodder or a photo-op.

      The Marines will follow orders but will fight to the death to save a fellow Marine. ROE’s be damned…

    I don’t doubt that those marines would fight valiantly but with just 320 of them they are vastly outnumbered, and I don’t think it’s right to have them there under those circumstances. Either bring in the necessary force to squash ISIS or get our soldiers out.

    • Hardnox says:

      The jihadis are only good at killing defenseless women, children and other inbred Arabs. They scatter when confronted by real soldiers. You are quite right about overwhelming numbers though.

      Fortunately the airbase is in the desert and air support can easily wipe out ISIS forces… provide of course it is sent.

      We should all be very concerned about our Marines safety. If it were any other administration I wouldn’t even be worried. With putt, political goals trump everything else.
