    Who is running the freaking Military? The Pentagon praises homosexual troops while the US is slugging it out in Afghanistan with little or no support from the Administration. The US used it's incredible Military might to pave the way for the muslem brotherhood to take over Libya in a week. It must have seemed strange for US Fighter Planes to be given all out permission to strafe and bomb civilians in Libya but ground Troops in Afghanistan are virtually forgotten and have to call the Pentagon for permission to fire a single shot if the Pentagon isn't too busy marching in the gay rights parade. International sources have released information about the jihad and Iran's intent to use missiles against US Navy ships in a critical Straights of Hormuz area and cripple US imports of foreign oil. A small boat challenged a US Navy supply ship and managed to limp back to shore and the US Navy SEALS are sitting it out in the mountains of Afghanistan.

    The president is constitutionally the commander in chief.

    After that comes the secretary of defense, followed by the the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. :thup:

    Yeah, we know the civilians run the Military in the greatest Nation in the world just like they did when LBJ set the rules so that the US could win every battle and lose the war in VietNam. Barry Hussein shipped guns to Mexico while US Troops slug it out in Afghanistan playing by rules set by the people they are fighting. Navy SEALS are the evolution of the old UDT or (underwater demolition team) but the administration has the SEALS up in the mountains of Afghanistan while the Navy is threatened by local jihad pirates and improvised underwater mines. Were the old Pentagon hairbags attending a gay rights parade when the USS Cole was bombed?

    That's why chicken-hawks shouldn't be elected.

    Obama is the latest in a long line of Presidents that have had illegal arms run south of the border. Does Ollie North ring a bell?

    The modern SEALs are more than adequately trained to handle conditions out of the water.

    Why are you rambling like a madman?

    Another nothing post by people who operate by emotion rather than logic? Would you have criticized LBJ's handling of VietNam or waited for Nixon and your chance at anarchy?

    Were you people in a coma during LBJ's war? Afghanistan is the same strategy of fighting by the rules set by the enemy and pretending we will prevail by some vague political wish. People who use the insulting term "chicken hawk" are either ignorant or politically ignorant. Even the most biased left wing zealot should understand that there is no shortage of skilled Recon Troops in Army Special Forces or the US Marines. SEAL training is about freaking (do I have to spell it) w-a-t-e-r, water. Hypothermia resistance and paddling a rubber boat while unconscious. It's all SEAL training. Why send them to a backwater war in the mountains of Afghanistan while their mission is protecting US Navy ships from underwater mines and jihad zealot pirates. The only thing I can think of is that the Pentagon generals are busy planning the next float in the gay rights parade.
