Funny, how this American Vet gets jumped and there is no call for foul, no riots in the streets, no call from the President etc etc etc.....Got it, it happened but watch what happens next when a different Marine fills these pieces of shit with 45 rounds and lets them lay in the street for dead. watch the out cry, watch the riots. Many "racial" groups want to shout Black Lives Matter etc but to hell with any others. Ya there is a racial problem and a good fix is to correct your own but that takes both sides of the coin to cooperate and that's not happening.

I find it ironic, like this lad, the president skipped military Generals funeral but attended or sent representation to Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney and Michael Brown, the young black man whose fatal shooting by a white police officer sparked days of racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. Makes sense....... You make your own call - Time for a C-Gar

“When we’re in the military, we’re there for our country," Marquez told Marine Corps Times. "...It’s very ironic: being attacked by the people you [were] there to serve.”

Police in Washington, D.C., are looking for at least four people in connection with the assault and robbery of a veteran Marine sergeant and Bronze Star with “V” recipient, who was one of two Marines who helped carry then-1st Sgt. Bradley Kasal out of Fallujah’s infamous “Hell House.” Read full story here


US Army orders hundreds of soldiers back to southern Afghanistan

197394-3x2-940x627

Along with the additional dumbing down of Americas youth (especially college students) it boggles my mind and I still hear some talk negative about military personnel. My favorite quote is “we aren’t even at war anymore”

However, exact numbers are close hold due to Op Sec, approximately 5-6k Marines are in Afghanistan and now the US Army is sending about 10k more. I’m sure O will be on the news in 3…..2….1…announcing he has ended the war in Afghanistan as well (brilliant).

I could go on about how the rules of engagement (ROE) are a joke and in the past 4 years we have let off the bad guys where as we had them on their heels back in 2010. More like running scared to now about the as O directing a catch and release program for our borders (by the way, thanks Obama voters, all of this is your fault). So when you hear some pimple faced puke say “we aren’t at war anymore” you will see the dumbing down of Americas youth by this administration first hand. Time for a C-Gar
