So now Obama is freeing Taliban killers captured on the battlefield.
I guess he thinks this is different from surrendering to the enemy, the same enemy killing our best & brightest kids, those willingly taking-up arms to defend an America whose leader is freeing their mortal enemies to come and kill them again.
It’s surrender in all but name. And our willingness – on the part of our civilian AND our military leaders – to give these enemies another shot at killing our troops, is disgusting.
Did we parole Germans in WW2? No.
Did we parole Imperial Japanese soldiers? No.
So we are paroling Jihadis… because…?
“Despicable” is too weak a word to describe a combat general who would allow his troops to be put at-risk by his commander in chief, who would willingly send into battle men he was ordering to risk their lives to kill and/or capture those trying to kill them… and then free these mortal enemies on the promise not to engage in further hostilities.
“Naive” and “stupid” are the most generous terms to describe our civilian leadership of our armed forces at this time; “Enemies” is the correct term.
Not surprisingly, the Obama Administration knows nothing of the rules of war – or of our own military training and the expectations and demands we put on our own warriors.
The technical term for the release of a POW on a promise to refrain from further hostilities against his captors is, “battlefield parole,” and ALL of our military personnel are trained NOT to accept it, regardless of what is occurring to them in their captivity. Yet now we give our mortal enemies three hots & a cot, medical care, cultural food, playtime, books… and now we parole them, too.
Here is Part III of The American Fighting Man’s Code of Conduct:
“If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.”
This is REQUIRED knowledge at all service academies and in Basic Training in all services.
So we train our guys – drum it into them during Basic Training and ongoing training throughout their careers – NOT to accept what Obama has freely offered our enemies.
What kind of “leadership” is this?
If our military leaders still had ANY honor, they would quit rather than accept for our enemies a parole they require their own men to reject.
If we REQUIRE our men to reject parole, then how can we engage in parole for our enemies?
How can Obama’s order to our military to extend parole to our enemies when we preclude it for our own men (and will and have put on-trial our own soldiers in past wars for accepting it) even be a legal order? Didn’t we address the issue of “my commander ordered it” with Lt. Calley and My Lai in Vietnam? Haven’t we trod this ground already?
And I’m not even talking about the Koranic requirement to lie to your enemies if doing so advances the cause of islam and jihad.
If my son were killed by a paroled jihadi, I’d start at the top of the chain of command and work my way down as far as I got. What are they going to do? Take away my son? And any parent who does NOT do so should be ashamed of himself/herself.
And any battlefield commander willingly sending into combat men to kill and to die, when he knows those captured will be released to attack his men again is not a man, not a leader of men, and certainly not a warrior.
He is a despicable excuse for a human being.
Why the military has chosen to become a Palace Guard, deploying at the whim of the Executive, whoever he is, of whatever party, rather than the defender of the Constitution they are Constitutionally required to be, is beyond me. And, No, the fact that the President is the Commander in Chief is not relevant. A force can be commanded ONLY after it has been DEPLOYED, and ONLY Congress can deploy American forces into combat.
And don’t forget, Al Qaeda currently has an American in captivity, promising to kill him if their demands are not met. And Obama stands by his we-don’t-negotiate-with-terrorist stance…. as he frees Taliban killers.
Obviously the operative Obama model is: Free anti-Americans, the more violent and the more American soldiers and Marines they have killed, the better, but let American captives stay and rot or be beheaded by these Dark Ages barbarians we are for unknown reasons fighting as equals in an exchange of bullets, wasting American lives rather than just nuking them as they so richly deserve.
Why is it so difficult for people to understand Obama is the enemy?
Every country that rejected Keynes exited the Depression years before America; it isn’t as though no one knows what these policies always result in: A worse economy and more central government control over the citizens; what do you think Obama’s goal is? He’s a smart guy; he KNOWS what Keynes always results in: economic destruction.
Using the same Keynesian policies FDR used to prolong the Depression, Obama has nuked our economy and our kids’ futures with the highest youth unemployment EVER and the highest sustained unemployment EVER, and debt as far as the eye can see.
Now he is telling our fighting me to go and fight and kill and die for a war he does not want to win and is doing everything within his power to lose – and if the deaths of more American warriors help him lose more quickly, that’s just fine with him.
At home he is dividing us by race and gender and class and nationality – turning the ages-old ‘melting pot’ on its head as he destroys what America has always been… and he is doing all of this to retain power he uses un- and anti-constitutionally.
Obama IS THE ENEMY.
Obama – and his entire anti-freedom, anti-liberty, anti-Western, anti-American ideology MUST GO…
… or freedom WILL go.
Your choice, Voter, what’s it going to be? A free America based on the Constitution and Rule of Law? Or a dictatorship by Obama?
