A group of United
States Marines is taking part in the yearly military exercise known as
"Eager Lion" in Jordan, a country that borders Syria. Just yesterday,
President Obama said he would increase military aid to Syrian rebels as a
consequence of the nation using chemical weapons on its own people, according
to the Associated Press.
Sent to Syria? Not directly but the
26th MEU is participating in the exercise (Eager Lion) in Jordan. I say again, A Marine
Expeditionary Unit (MEU) is already on the ground in Jordan (next to
Syria). Now, this exercise has been planned for some time as the Asoc press
reads but know, it would be very easy to left turn into Syria, in a blink of an
eye. Why do countries get so damn scared when US Navy ships are seen of the
horizon? Because they are full of Marines, that’s why.
Although the exercise isn’t planned to
go long, the US will
leave some F16s & Patriot Missiles in Jordan. In case you didn’t know,
F16 & Patriots are not, never been will never be apart of a MEU and thus
this was planned in parallel. (I smell a "no fly zone" building) .
Your warriors are always in the middle
of something. If there is trouble, and people need help, it isnt unusual to
find Marines. Thats just how we are. America's 911 Force!
light of the recent terrorist bombing in Boston, national attention is
refocused on the case of TMLC client, Army LTC Matthew Dooley. In 2012,
Dooley was fired from the National Defense University’s Joint Forces Staff College for teaching an elective course on Radical Islam because it was offensive to Muslims.
You know when your kid registers to join a team sport, ya
know like soccer or whatever else non-contact touchy feely sport and they give
trophies at the end of the year even though the team sucked and didn’t win a
freaking game? Vomit. “We want everyone to feel like winners” a coach told me
when I asked why they were getting trophies. I just stood there and looked at
him with my cigar in my mouth and thought to myself, “you got beat up a lot as
a kid didn’t you”.
The Marine Corps tested females in front line combat units
aka Infantry. The Marine Corps did not lower the standard and allowed females
to participate and qualify for the infantry officers course. The Marine Corps
passed to congress and higher that it would not be a good idea ton implement women into the infantry. What does the
Marine Corps know? They only have been fighting our nations wars, that's all. Well, to already
cluster strike an idea that apparently everyone in the room already knows the
results except those in DC, a female Marine gives her two cents. But hey, it’s
only another Marine telling everyone, it’s a bad idea. Let’s do it anyway!!! Brilliant.
In 2011 The Marines Corps implemented tanks into Afghanistan. There wasn’t an enemy tank threat, the tanks were simply used to direct fire into the enemy when mortars or close air support couldn’t while at the same time minimizing civilian casualties. Try being a bad guy, shooting at Marines and having a tank respond to your machinegun fire(chew on that bad guys).
In the second picture you will see Marines. This is what the inside a can of whoop ass looks like. They are dirty, mean and combat proven. Notice many of the weapons are condition one (magazine loaded) because they are ready to fight even within their outpost which is most likely shared by Afghan Army.

These are just a couple pictures of your Marines at war, yes America, we are still at war!
US to reposition forces near Libya. There is no surprise that we are moving forces near and around Libya, which also happens to be right next to Egypt and yes other significant economic areas like the Suez Canal. With the significant unrest and destabilized events that are occurring n that region one would expect the US to get involved to assist in “humanitarian” operations or “other” operations if required.
