Attention on Deck!

“SACRIFICIAL LAMBS” OR MEN STANDING TALL?

Do today’s soldiers recognize an illegal order?

(Apr. 30, 2013) — The Rite of Passage for young men hasn’t changed in thousands of years: between the time of adolescence and manhood is a fleeting moment where the down payment is made to insure a stable environment to continue the Family Tree extending into the future. Depending on circumstances and desires, some join up as soon as they receive their high school diploma, while others may postpone the inevitable.  But one way or the other, a man must serve his country.

My generation was really messed up, thanks to the government’s handling of the Vietnam War. Nevertheless, it doesn’t change the fact that there were other avenues in which to serve one’s country besides running away with tail between legs. That being said, I expect your full attention to the following speech.

At Ease.

Even though it’s been 40-some years since I proudly saluted Old Glory for the last time while in uniform, I have continued to uphold my Oath to the Constitution that we all took, thus assuring common ground between Veterans and active duty troops, a chain unbroken to our fidelity to the document that makes our great land what it is.

Storm clouds have been brewing on the horizon for over 1,400 years and, starting with the last century, have overflowed into our daily lives as inexorably as the sun rising in the East and setting in the West, which is an apt description of what is going on today.

Some philosophical viewpoints are benign, while others are polar opposites. Take, for instance, the belief in Isolationism and that of an ever-expanding (overt) forceful idea that a common thought (within a defined geographical border) isn’t going to cut the mustard if the people next door don’t have the exact same world view. Eventually there will be a clash, a skirmish, a line drawn, a front marked out, a map with the two sides painted in different colors. One side doesn’t respect borders, or maps, or a different philosophic viewpoint different from their own.

And therein lies the dilemma of Western Civilization against the onslaught of Islam. The West has no desire to conquer Muslim lands, yet the Muslims have an insatiable appetite for expansion.  The expansion isn’t for tangible assets such as silver or gold; its goal is to silence free thought, freedom of expression, and women having the same rights in a court of law as men have.

The troops of today are nothing more than sacrificial lambs being led to slaughter, and if you don’t believe me, I suggest you all go over, once again, the Rules of Engagement for our troops in any Muslim country, specifically Afghanistan. LTC Terry Lakin was another casualty of the Western/Islam clash, as was Ambassador Stevens. The civilian deaths on 9-11 were just the beginning of the atrocities that will occur in our country; count on it.

Just because your Commanders may have turned their backs on their Oath does not, in any way, shape, or form absolve you of acting on illegal orders. You all should have stood up as one voice when LTC Terry Lakin was forbidden to present his defense during his Court Martial, but you didn’t. I would have, and yes, I probably would have gone to the brig, but, and pay attention now, an overwhelming majority of the troops would have stood shoulder to shoulder with me at the same time. You didn’t then, but you must now, because our country needs you to take that step forward. You have hundreds of thousands of veterans and millions of civilians who will stand side by side with you, shoulder to shoulder, in expelling the Muslim usurper de facto president Obama. Together, acting as a cohesive unit, honoring OUR OATH, we will take our country back.

Attention!

Dismissed, and Thank You.

    Dear gigclick,
    Ditto to you.
    Thank you for your well thought-out comment.
    Everything you say is true. Unfortunately, it seems that half the country suffers from an acute IQ shortage and are blindly following the Pied Piper right into the Fema Camps, never to return.
    I don’t have a problem with that part of the equation, but the fact that they’re taking us with them is what I’m against, plus the destruction of the “Beacon of Freedom” for our planet: the USA.
    What you say about the corporate ladder is unfortunately true: just look at the Joint Chiefs of Staff and correlate their names and the amounts that they’ve been bribed in their Vatican Slush Fund accounts, which has received plenty of news coverage in Europe but none here.
    The Muslims own our media and advertising agencies. Every printed newspaper, magazine and television advertisment is skewed beyond incredibility. You and I can recognize a con-job when we see one, but the brains of the Obots are apparently the size of a Brontosaurus, a large lizard weighing tons of the Jurassic age that reportedly had a brain the size of a walnut.
    As far as where are the people who are willing to honor their Oath and their full support of our Constitution, they’re all around us, millions of them, and many of them combat tested Veterans who know the score, the WHOLE score, and nothing but, just as you and all the other readers of the P&E do.
    Semper Fi,

    Well written! With due respect to all good Command Leaders, there exists the element of “Command Racketeers” in the Ranks that like most bad politicians think they are above Military and Civilian Law. They will chance going outside the boundaries to achieve personal gain or favor and use it to their advantage. We see this in daily government, corporate operations and daily life. There are those that choose to follow the Rule Of Law and we gain a severe dislike for the other that choose the other side. There are many now that severely dislike what is happening in our country by the Muslim Usurper and the Democratic Socialist Power Teams that are threatening and scouring America for anyone that opposes them. Fitzpatrick, Lakin, Wood and a few others were used by Obama’s operatives to make examples to attempt to instill fear in those that would go against them. Obama and his criminal assistants are well planned and as devious as they come but every criminal has his day and theirs is closing fast. They are desperate to keep the smell of their dirty laundry and corruption under cover. We have known for 5 years what they are all about and Hillary set the courts and judges up to call any Criminal Presentment against Bari Shabazz/Pelosi “a no standing charge” and thus having no credibility to Discovery and the judges get to keep their jobs and paychecks. I guess that’s “free enterprise”? Maybe for Hillary and all the other Democrat Freaks that are stealing record amounts of money from the taxpayers and phony “stimulus packages” and other ponzi schemes they are skilled at. It is amazing how these people are operating in front of anyone with an IQ over 35 and getting away everyday with the biggest fraud ever forced on the U.S. and it’s citizens and they have been able to ignore and neutralize our Constitution and rights and completely ignore them, yet allow the “system” to operate like nothing has happened. Even with Benghazi and Fast and Furious, they still are walking around murder, identity fraud, high treason, monumental financial theft, obfuscation, misprision of felony, destruction of multiple Military Officers and enlisted members that stood up, lies to the face of the public daily, cover ups, sex scandals, record wasteful spending, opening our borders to illegal aliens for Democrat votes and personal gain, national debt in orbit and no accountability. Where are the people with any honor or responsibility to the oath they took to hold any office as a “public trustee”?

    I don’t believe in lynch mobs, but I do believe in firing squads.
