I have not contributed much to this site lately but this one has kind of brought me out of my shell. I like most saw the report on this incident in the last few days and as a guy that retired from the Navy in 2002 from a command that had a similar mission to the ones that surrendered to the Iranians without firing one shot and am made ill by the conduct of one of the sailors and would participate in hanging him myself if asked. Am sickened by that honorless stinking skunk maggot, John Kerry who was as much of a sniveling coward as you ever want to see on active duty characterizing this as a improvement between us and Iran. I could not believe my eyes seeing our guys on their knees with their hands behind their heads and the Iranians taking weapon after unfired weapon with tons of ammunition as these............whatever did nothing. What has happened to our Navy, what has happened to our government, what has happened to honor, courage and commitment. What happened to the code of conduct? As I said, I retired in 2002, but I am still ashamed to say I am a US Navy vet. It's a sad day.
There is not a Veteran walking the streets today that would not get sick at the action of these Sailors, Is Not the action of any Veteran I know !
I am a vietnam era vet, and anything that involves Kerry is disgusting even to think about it. Obuma picked a second looser for that office. I can't wait until the demogoons are out of office and our people get back in. And a Navy veteran.
It is all Obama. He only kept Generals etc that will do as told. He is out to disgrace the military because the people stand with them. We must remain standing with the military the next President will rebuild what Obama has destroyed.
I agree I stand firmly with our Military I pray for those under the command of this wicked evil Resident.I will not stand in judgement of those sailors I don't have the right my heart goes out to all of their families and to all our Vets past and present that had to witness this.As far a Lurch ( Kerry ) to me he and those that think or act like him are traitors to this country and to all our Honorable men and women that couragousely serve I pray GOD will watch over them and lead and guide them through this nightmare they are experiencing.GOD BLESS THEM ALL and their families.
yes it is all Ohitler and his merry marxists in our govt
Hopefully our next President will be a Republican. Also, hopefully, he'll fire the entire JCOS because they have shown their complete disloyalty to the Constitution and to the people of the United States. If they had removed obama for the traitor that he is, we would still have a country that is not fractured. This recent disgrace and degradation of our Navy is both obama's doing and JCOS's failure.
I am a Navy combat vet from 1967 and I am sure that they were in contact with command who told them what to do. I was disappointed that it happened but they did come out alive. I only hope that we can ice them down the road.
As long as Obama and his gang of communists, terrorists, cowards and criminals exist in our government and are in control of our country, this is NEVER GOING TO GET BETTER. Any Republican sitting in Washington today who says they can't or won't support Trump or Cruz is a dyed in the wool GOP Establishment RINO and I would put Marco Rubio on that list. We have got to make it clear to the GOP that they don't pull the strings of Tea Party Constitutional Conservatives any longer (they never pulled my strings).....they work for US, not vice versa!!!! They may believe they wield the power, along with the Democrats they snuggle up to entirely too much, in this country still but they are soon to find out who OWNS AND INTENDS TO PRESERVE AND PROTECT THIS COUNTRY and TAKE HER BACK FROM THE AXIS OF EVIL and that includes all the RINO, Establishment, Elite and Progressive Republicans. I get sick every day and feel for our US Military because of who is giving them their orders these days. It's not the soldiers, sailors, airmen/women and Marines, it is who is commanding them from the top down to the lowest NCO. We have to continue being here for our brave young and young at heart men and women who wear the uniform of our country. They defeated terrorism once and I was there to see it. They will stand with us when the time comes.
The whole thing, was the greatest humiliation, I have ever seen. Why the men were so far away from the larger ships, who was in command, what caused the breakdown, and why if we ready to give Billions, to these raggedy Bastards, they treated our Sailors as they did. If they are worthy of our money, then they should have immediately sheltered our men, offered them food and shelter, then helped them get their boats going again. Obama's completely ignoring the whole thing is his Speech sucked. It is more than obvious he hates our Military, and will do nothing to defend them. The man should go, NOW!
Thought you would like to know that Obama engineered the whole thing. Seems he knew the men were not in touch with their superiors so called Iran , told them the GPS co-ordinates and asked them to help our men. Reported yesterday . He also would not have them released immediately because he felt that 2:00 AM release would be dangerous. Lovely isn't he/ http://conservativetribune.com/defense-secretary-slips-up/
