'Fundamentally Transforming' the Military

Soldiers must be held accountable for their actions in the line of duty. To think otherwise is to invite Nazi-like thinking, to invite disaster. That being said, the responsibility rests on the shoulders of the politicians who put those brave souls in situations where their honor may be impuned by poor decisions made in haste, or in the heat of battle. A democratic republic has no business fighting protracted wars, being involved in unconstitutional police actions and nation building. This invites disaster on every level. Ultimately, it falls on us, the people, the voter, the citizen, first and foremost to raise our children with honor, and hold ourselves to that honor; and second, to elect men of courage and integrity to office.

We had a chance to elect a man of courage and integrity last time and he was beaten by a communist clown. People no longer seem to care about heroes. JSM had roots to the revolution, men in his family fought in every war this nation ever fought, his heroism in Hanoi will go down in the annals of military history, every man who was imprisoned with him supported his candidacy. I am privileged to know a few of those heroes. But, what did we get instead? An enigma, by design, a liar brought up in the alinsky school of communism. A person about whom we know only what he wants us to know a complete construct with an agenda to destroy this nation.....what does that say about US or at least HALF of us?

I was not enthusiastic about McCain, but voted for him anyway, because I KNEW how empty Obama's promises were. If you're stupid enough to have believed in his empty rhetoric, then you shouldn't even be voting at all.

I don't know where you came up with the crazy conclusion that McCain was a totalitarian and facist, but Obama has proven to be the very definition of those terms.

Well, it didn't help that Se. McCain refused to campaign seriously, even to the point of disowning supporters who called his opponent by his legal name. Abandoning his campaign in the middle, to go back to Washington for a conference on the economy didn't help either.

In Lone Survivor, a chilling, firsthand account of the loss of eleven members of the Navy’s elite Sea, Air, Land (SEAL) Team and eight Army aviators, Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell describes the fateful decision that led to disaster for him and death for his comrades. It came down to a judgment call about whether to risk prosecution and jail-time for doing whatever it took to complete their mission, or to allow three Afghan goatherds to rat out his unit to the Taliban.

When Luttrell cast the deciding vote to turn loose the farmers who had stumbled upon him and three...
