Default Mother of Three Marines Just Said Something EVERY American Needs to Hear

Quote:
Americaís military personnel live in a war zone ó and thatís before they even get sent to a battle zone in another country.

I have three daughters who are Marines. Am I angry about the murder of the four Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee? Iím worse than angry. Iím so angry I can hardly write. Iím mad as hell, and I ainít gonna take it anymore. And Iíve been angry for eight years or more. Iím angry at the fools who gave us Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 5210.56, which for all intents and purposes, put our troops in the position of sitting ducks at home and around the world.

And Iím angry that the welcome mat is STILL out, allowing tens of thousands of Middle Eastern sickos into our country.

I canít even fathom what kind of stupid logic is behind a directive which forces our military personnel to leave their weapons in a locked arsenal on a military base ó while also forcing those same military personnel to work side-by-side with people who are pretty obviously going to be gunning for them at some point. This policy, issued for their own protection Iím sure, issued by people surrounded by the best security systems the DOD can provide, also put unarmed recruiters in strip malls with no bulletproof glass and again no firearms. They donít even have a can of mace they can throw at someone.

This isnít the first time military recruiters have come under fire or been killed at work, as weíve recounted here.

News reports indicated that yesterdayís shooter fired numerous rounds into the Chattanooga recruiting center before driving off to find more victims. It was reported that the shooting lasted about 20 seconds at the first location and 20 to 45 MINUTES at the second location. If youíre the parent of a Marine ó or the spouse, child, or just a friend ó can you imagine what those Marines went through being shot at with NO WAY to return fire and possibly save themselves?

I am a Marine and my son is a Marine on active duty. As opposed to the average conservobot we understand not all people from the middle east are sicko murderers. I think all responsible Americans should be armed all the time with a few exceptions and it makes me mad as hell this Marines died without the opportunity to return fire. Just be very carful spreading the acts of a few to the many, far more dangerous than terrorists.

All I can assume is that the powers that be didn't want to interrupt trade.
Money talks and doesn't care that regular citizens and soldiers suffer the consequences.

Of course. Anyone who is not a mindless conservobot is repeating talking points.

Ok then,

If you understand so much about mid East people, tell us how you can tell the difference between the radical violent individules from the peacefull ones?

If you can answer this monumental question, I could go along with this.. But the fact is you can't..

Your version of America is not what America has been about for the last 200 years.

Your "new progressive version" of liberal idiot-ology is all about socialism or communism, take your pick. Rob from those who work and have and give to the lazy and have nothing. Yup in our history, that is what makes America great.

You can buy a lot of votes from the lazy do nothing idiots though. The left is good at that. Other wise we would just bury them.
