TURNING OFF THE RINGER
Re: John R. Guardiano’s Free General McChrystal:
Well, I think General McChrystal is doing what he has to do to keep our boys alive in Afghanistan. We are witnessing what MacArthur and President Truman went through during the highpoint of the Korean conflict. General MacArthur was replaced by General Ridgeway and the war was called a draw.
Truman like Barack Obama let Americans die on the battlefield because he was afraid of political infighting in his party and political base.
Truman let over 90,000 Chinese regular. Army troops come over the border into North Korea and overrun our troops because he wouldn’t let the general at the time, bomb military installations in china which were being used in killing our Marines and Army troops. Truman was afraid of the Chinese and backed down — costing lives.
Yes MacArthur wanted to drop nukes because that was our force multiplier being we were out numbered 3-1 against Chinese and north Korean forces.
Truman’s policies left us in a stalemate for past 50 years. Just look at North Korea now: a radical, unstable government with nuclear weapons.
Now let’s fast-forward to the present. Obama replaced the American General in charge of forces with McChrystal, and McChrystal is asking for more troops to defeat the enemy and he has been asking for the past 2 1/2 months and Obama just said we have to strategize while our boys bleed, get overrun and die by the enemy. This is happening because we have a president who is incapable of sophisticated thinking and decisive decision-making.
So when is Obama going to start blaming President G.W. Bush for his failed policy?
Godspeed on General McChrystal in trying to save the lives of our
Marines and Army grunts fighting to keep us safe at night by
getting more troops. When the public calls 911 and the police
pickup the phone do they tell the public sorry can’t help you we
are short? No they respond. Well our boys are calling for help
and the president has turned off the ringer.

President Obama’s flagrant disloyalty to General McChrystal is simply astonishing and it is a very poor indicator of the character of Obama as a man and as a President. Obama came into office insisting that the war in Afghanistan was important and had to be won and General McChrystal was appointed to do that. As with other things, within weeks Obama has changed his mind and now the general is being slandered for trying to carry out his mission and do his job of winning the war. The message to anybody with an IQ of more than 50 is simple — don’t trust anything Obama says, he is a coward and a liar who will lead you up the creek, leave you there and say it was all your fault. Eight months into his already lamentable Presidency and he has shafted Poland, the Czech Republic, Israel and now General McChrystal, and the war in Afghanistan as well. And for what? What pay-off has been achieved? The answer is none. It won’t be long before America runs out of friends and allies if this nonsense continues. America’s enemies can hardly believe their luck.
Obama is a creep, he was no guts and no judgment, he is already
surrounded by toadies who will never tell him the truth and now
every officer and man in the military and every friend of America
knows that they are expendable, they will be thrown under the
nearest bus to save the skin of this mendacious poltroon. The
result will be that everyone will make sure their backside is
covered when this guy is in town. How can a disaster be avoided
when this is going on? I suspect that before the next election
comes around we will all know that it can’t and it wasn’t.

HEROES AND ZEROS
Give me a general
with stars on his shoulder,
And I’ll show you a leader who’s braver and bolder
Than most any politician you can name.
He knows war is not a gotcha game.
Playing with the lives of our military heroes
Is fun only for our congressional zeros.
White House wannabes flip and flop
Pretending comprehension they haven’t got.
The worthies surrounding our Commander in Chief
Consistently astound us with their belief
That the men and women in full battle dress
Are pawns in their endless machinations of chess.
