Yes, Sept 11 attack anniversary is right around the corner. The young may not remember and the old try to forget it. It is one generations Pearl Harbor attack that they will always remember and remember what they were doing when they heard the news.
At least when I was in Iraq & Afghanistan we had a mission. We had goals, we saw improvements, we made a difference. Since this administration has taken office and claimed “he ended the war in Iraq”
"After nearly 9 years, America's war in Iraq will be over," said Mr. Obama.
Things have spun out of control and the threat is closer to the US than ever before. Back when we were living off of forward operating bases and making a difference we had the momentum and took the fight to the enemy. Now, the enemy is getting stronger and are obtaining he upper hand. What will it take another strike on US soil to “develop a plan?”
If you are frustrated, think about those in harms way, as sitting ducks.
Amid the mixed messages, a source in contact with special operators in Iraq told Fox News that "frustration and confusion reign" among Americans on the ground there.
The source relayed the complaint of an unnamed special operator: "Chase them to the Gates of Hell? How the [f---] are we going to do that when we can't even leave the front gate of our base!?"
We had goals, we saw improvements, we made a difference, now we do nothing, without a plan. Time for a C-Gar
How did America stray so far off our traditional path? No wonder our enemies are pressing us and they have leverage. It starts at the top America. At least some Americans aren’t afraid of our enemies and will have a plan for them! Time for a C-Gar
THIS is why your Marines will walk through fire for America and its people. This is why we continue to deploy time and again, spend time away from our families because this is a great American who "Gets it" - Time for a C-Gar
This Motto Monday post was starting with one of the warriors who was wounded in the same area I was about the same time Then it took a different turn. This Motto Monday I ask everyone to simply stop while reading this post and remember those that have given all for this country and those that are battling obstacles back home as amputees.
There is nothing worse than being screwed with when its your time to sleep. You’ve earned it then some jokers decide to mess you. I’ve had some good ones done on me but never, never done any to others…..ya right. Share your “jokers” tricks in the comments – Time for a C-Gar
My good friend “Wheezey” called me out to do the ALS challenge so I figured if I was going to do it I would take it up a notch. Yes those are my clothes on the ground! (Nothing but my socks!!) Now that I can feel my soul again from the cold water (yes it was very cold) I’m calling out the Batten family (Cathy /Taylor), Marty Horn, Tim Wigley, Blitz and Dana. Embrace the numbing cold gang! You have 24hrs Time for a C-Gar
Many have seen the “threats” and barbaric actions from ISIS on TV. Currently our administration isn’t sure how to battle this organization and a couple hell fire missiles won’t be the cure all solution, they surely didn't help James Foley. The even more immediate issue is how does this administration deal with this group within the US? They have already admitted they don’t know how to contain them and have resulted to “restraining their money flow”. Wow that will make them stop beheading Christians, innocent reporters and children for sure! The gloves have come off (thats sarcasm for those that haven't had a cup of coffee yet)
Note the ISIS sign? Its in Furguson during the riots.
