    Trying to run the world and give everything away to foreign countries. .... then feed an obese govt with Socialist taught kids....lol.
    what did We expect, would happen.
    Let's even abandoned a few Seals, and an Embassy. Who wants to fight for a Commander who deserts you on foreign soil...lol.
    who wants to fight for a guy who gives up plans, location, and times of troop movements.

    I must be dreaming. ...This isn't my America.

    I have two nieces that are in the army.One is currently a staff sergeant serving in Hawaii and has served two tours to Iraq.The other is currently in school(GI bill) but is scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan in a few months.My son just finished his second year of ROTC in high school and is looking at a military career.Im proud of my nieces but would be very skeptical of having my son serve under the current leadership or anything that resembles it.

    You are right about the current leadership, check out Jim Webb and consider supporting him for President.

    There was Vietnam and all the wars since and exactly what leadership did you fellers have confidence in?
    I haven't seen a one except for a few who try to stay out of wars.
    But I'll watch for your favorite Commander in Chief of late

    there are several issues with the citizens and the military. One being we are lead by a wacky group in upstate ny called the united nations who couldn't convince congress of a declared war if their life depended on it. I guess its better to drag out a war for 15+ years and hope for the best ?

    If you thought the draft when crappy during the viet nam era Wait until the next draft

    With the budget cut backs to the military & abandonment of veterans by the VA it is difficult to attract good soldiers.

    I was just explaining to my Son what the first Gulf War was and how it played out. We made short work of that so-called "battle hardened", invincible Iraqi military. That's what can happen when we really want to win and we keep the politics out of it.

    With this current bunch of Americans, bowing to the enemy is the only viable option to them. They think that what makes a great country is when the Country bows to the enemies of our Nation. They won't think it's too great of a strategy when those that we pandered to attack us on our soil. Unfortunately it will be too late to correct, since our citizen's lives will be lost. They will never acknowledge the error of their ways.

    If you want more military ( we spend more than the next 10 nations combined)
    Stop complaining about spending a little to feed families.
    Those kids will grow up and fill the openings in the military.
    After all if you want people to fight and die for their country it should be a good country to them.

    Trouble is your expectations of the military is super high,
    you want them to be able to go around to the other side of the globe and defeat any foe at any time.
    Thats a tall order for any Nation to keep ready and a really expensive .
    We went to WW2 with massive might but that took years to develope to that level, no country can afford to stay at that level.

    He outspent them, they went bankrupt and we got deep into debt.
    Now they are coming back.
    George jr was screwing with the Russians putting missiles near their border.
    Getting them worried, starting up the whole cold war :shit: again.
    He was a dumb ass

    Every penny we pay for interest on our debt. We're paying for their military.
