Boots On The Ground
Are you LISTENING Hussein Jane!!!! WE are a value based military!!!!!!!
I am very vocal about my distain of the MSM...but once in a while....the MSM gets it right.
Kudos to Chris Mathews for "Boots From The Ground". A show that gave voice to the truth, which he and other MSM elites have failed to do, about what's going on in Iraq; about our successes and the reality of who this insurgency is, where they come from, and how they operate, and about the challenges that our brave deployed men and women have had to deal with and continue to face, and the way in which our values based military have dealt with and continue to deal with those challenges.
The show featured some heartfelt honest stories and valuable honest insights from:
Lt. Col. Kelley, 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne), Ft. Campbell, KY
Col. Donald Jackson, U.S. Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, PA
Lt. Col. James, Rainey, 1st Cavalry Division, Ft. Hood, TX( served two tours of duty)
When asked if he felt the American people are behind us, Col. Donald Jackson said MOST DEFINATELY- it's obvious from the way people react to them and treat them..he commented on how well the crew of Hardball had treated them..how the audience and the VietNam Vets in the audience had expressed their support,and that by and large this reflects what MOST Americans truly feel.
ARE YOU LISTENING TRAITOR JANE??
All three of them concurred that we are most definately better off with an all volunteer force...its a choice to serve and that makes for a quality military!
Post 9/11 anyone that joined the services KNEW they were going to serve! They are joining for the right reason and we are getting GREAT people enlisting now..they are talented...committed and want to serve..to protect their familes and their country from the evil that we are facing........ they know with every fibre in their being that they are doing something vital to national security! Chris concurred with that...he said when he visited the wounded troups in the hospital nearby they all expressed a desire to return to their deployed units!
These group of wives that volunteer to run the family support groups were mentioned for their unwavering support and inner strength.
When Chris asked "Are we winning their hearts and minds?" The answer was a resounding YES!
Day by day we are winning the hearts and mind: the way young kids react to our troups when they come into town is very telling..when the kids come out to talk to the troups..that's a sign that we have won the hearts and minds of their parents...its a good sign...and the best indicator for how the population is feeling.
Ambiguity is a challenging issue - as it was in Nam - one Vet asked: " you want to protect your forces...you want to win hearts and minds.. how do we solve that problem? Col.R.Kelley insisted that our men are discriminating in their use of force.
And then Col.Jackson gave a great example of one way in which we deal with the ambiguity.
A Civil affairs unit goes in after the troups have entered someones home in the middle of the nite when they are trying to capture insurgents(oh and Jane this raid on a home happens after much information is obtained by various sources in order to ascertain where these madmen are holed up and planning more mass murders) ...and the civil affairs unit helps the occupants of the house to deal with what's happened..IF there was a mistake made and no terrorists were found, then, WE, via the Civil affairs unit repair the damages, help bring order back to the house and work to make amends in various ways. IF insurgents have been caught..the message is clear..."you harbour these guys...YOU will be held accountable". This is what our values based military does.We help to get the family back to normal WHEN we make a mistake!!!!!!
THIS IS WHO THAT FUCKWIT HUSSEIN JANE IS PROTESTING AGAINST!
APPARENTLY TRAITOR JANE BELIEVES OUR VALUES BASED MILITARY IS EVIL WHILE SADDAM HUSSEIN IS A KINDLY MISUNDERSTOOD OLD MAN,WHO BESIDES HARBOURING AND INVESTING RESOURCES IN TERRORISTS WHO ARE PART OF A GROUP OF MADMEN HELLBENT ON KILLING ANYONE INCLUDING AMERICANS THAT THEY CANNOT SUBJUCATE, WOULD HAVE HIS MILITARY HENCHMENT BREAK INTO IRAQI'S HOMES, HAUL THEM OUT OF BED, RAPE, TORTURE AND SOMETIMES KILL THEM FOR NO DAMN REASONOTHER THAN HE COULD!
Let me assure Traitor Jane, that Shitdam's civil affairs unit didnt stick around to help get the remaining family members back to normal...or to make amends for destroying their lives, subjucating them to fear, torture, and depriving them of basic human rights.
But I digress......the show was a much need breath of fresh air in the generally polluted left wing media.
