Cowards/Leftists invade the Military
When one of thier own free will enlists or signs on the dotted line to join the military there are many things in thier life that changes. One being the fact that certain rights are null and void to an extent while in service.
Marine Sgt. Liam Madden says: "Just because we volunteered for the military doesn't mean we volunteered to put our lives in unnecessary harm and to carry out missions that are illogical and immoral."
I got news for you Sgt. It is your duty to go where and when they tell you. You WILL PACK YOUR GEAR and hit the road on a moments notice 24/7. You enjoy a monthly check, houseing, food, and ammenities. In return you are to jump when they say and ask how high on the way up.
Yes you have the right to question orders that may be unlawful, through your chain of command. However in the case of your deployment to IRAQ it is a lawful order. It was passed by congress and the senate. Your President sent marching orders and you will obey.
No one, let alone myself when I was sent in 90 to Desert Shield and Desert Storm wanted to go knowing full well there would be a chance of being killed. However I packed my gear and went. I had the welfare of my troops to look after. It was my job to go, KILL THE ENEMY, and do my best to bring my boys home ,safe and in one piece. Thank God I was able to do this.
They say they are not disloyal. They say they are not shirking their duty and that they do not oppose war. But over 1,000 active-duty and reserve members of the U.S. military are against the war in Iraq and have said so in an unusually public way -- by petitioning Congress last month. Several of them appear to explain their actions in a Lara Logan report to be broadcast on 60 MINUTES Sunday Feb. 25 (7:00-8:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
The fact the petitioned is one of those grey lines that is a right a member of the service has. However to speak out openly to a bias reporting crew like 60 minutes is not a right that a service member can enjoy. The repercussions of this is disharmony in a unit.
If you are in a situation that your life depends on the man next to you. Then you know that this person disagrees and is not in favor of the situation and shows sympathy towards the enemy. How can you depend upon him to watch your back.
In a firefight you lob a grenade in the window where there is enemy fire coming from. Then you find out that the enemy combnatant was a 17 year old jihadist or communist. As in all situations an afteraction report is filed, your comrade does not approve of th3e use of handgrenades and therfore tries to sell you out. Saying that there was no fire from this place. How would you feel knowing full well you saved this cowards life only to have him try and plunge a knife in your back.
It is every enlisted duty to question an UNLAWFULL ORDER, not to stand there and argue or discuss lawful and direct orders just because they (as a person) disagree with the political reasons behind the order. An example of an unlawfull order would be "I order you to take no prisoneers, to shoot all who wish to surrender". No that is an unlawfull order and needs to be questioned.
Just because you are ordered to go to a foriegn country and fight does not fall under unlawfull at all.
These pukes who enlist and enjoy the G.I. Bill, nice reenlistment bonuses and a steady paycheck, but refuse to uphold thier end of the CONTRACT THAT THEY SIGNED are a DISGRACE AND ARE COWARDS. They are people without honor or respect.
They are showing comfort to the enemy by speaking out publicly against their chain of command. This in any military is never acceptable.
