.. guys , POTUS is the Commander – in – Chief . It is a fact for which he likes to claim credit , usually at convenient times [such as the offing of you-know-who] . But there is also a military doctrine , one that the uniformed military understands well , especially the officers …

.. It is called command responsibility . You are responsible for the actions of those under your command , military or civilian , officer or enlisted , If they screw up , you are accountable , folks . That includes POTUS ..

.. you do not allow the D.O.D. to retaliated against our own people for doing what is right . You set a policy , and stick to it , dammit !! …

.. it needs to be , god knows . The injured and the dead deserve the truth about Pvt [not Sgt] Bergdahl . So do all of us here in the U.S. and abroad …

.. why ? is it for political reasons ? is it to cover POTUS ‘ rather large backside [politically as well as otherwise] ? The world wonders ….

.. we deserve the truth …. the full and unbifurcated truth … not a politically correct version of the same …

.. as does Bowe Bergdahl …

… Gee , I wonder why the ObamaCraps ignored This ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 3rd,2014

.. Ouch ! ..

.. it is probably because they did not want to get into a public political ” pissing ” match with former Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld . That is why …

.. [h/t — RealClearPolitics]..
.. [link] to the Kelly File footage ..

.. as he put it , ” a trained ape could manage our country ‘ s affairs in Afghanistan better than Barack Obama has … ” . Why ?

.. Simple , We need a S.O.F.A. (a Status of Forces Agreement) with the Afghans . It is not hard to negotiate . We have them with over 100 nations all over the world . The S.O.F.A. helps legally protect our servicemen and servicewomen from the host government ‘ s legal proceedings . Our people are first subject to our military law , under the U.C.M.J. …

.. the Afghans need us much more tan we need them . Their ” Loya Jurgah ” (the tribal assembly of chieftains) has endorsed it … get to it , you idiots ..

… Nice Going , Dumb – Dumb [on Iraq] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,January 6th,2014

… 5 years ago , the war in Iraq was won …

.. 3 years ago , our country was in  position to conclude a continuing agreement with Iraq . All it required was for His Lordship and VPOTUS to conclude what is known as a Status of Forces Agreement [S.O.F.A.] . It covers how U.S. forces are governed and treated legally , generally while in a so – called friendly country , especially in an Allied nation . It is not all that difficult . But , Nooooooo ….

.. The ObamaCraps could not even do something that simple . They have butchered and bungled Iraq . They have frittered away what Iraqi forces , our own military , and Allied nations had won in blood …

.. So , what is happening now ? Guess ? Al Qaeda & Company are rolling in , and trying to take over …

… It is a Day Late , POTUS , and a Dollar Short (to say the least) …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 23rd,2013

.. Now he starts to speak .

.. Since the evidence is clearly overwhelming , POTUS has finally found that his hand has been forced . He cannot ignore the obvious . Chemical Weapons have been used by the Assad regime in Damascus , and there is no getting around that fact . Also , sitting there , and doing nothing , for the ObamaCraps is not an option any longer .

.. POTUS called the apparent gassing of hundreds of Syrian civilians a “big event of grave concern” but stressed on Friday that he would not rush to embroil Americans in a costly new war.

As opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad braved the frontlines around Damascus to try and deliver tissue samples to U.N. inspectors from victims of Wednesday’s poisoning, Obama brushed over an interviewer’s reminder that he once called the use of chemical weapons a “red line” for U.S. action on Syria.

He played down the chances of Assad cooperating with a U.N. team that might, if given access soon, provide conclusive evidence of what happened. In any case, he would not react in haste to calls for U.S. intervention that would “mire” Americans in an undertaking that was counter to their long-term interests.

.. Noting budget constraints, problems of international law and a continuing U.S. casualty toll in Afghanistan, Obama told CNN:

“Sometimes what we’ve seen is that folks will call for immediate action, jumping into stuff that does not turn out well, gets us mired in very difficult situations, can result in us being drawn into very expensive, difficult, costly interventions that actually breed more resentment in the region.

“The United States continues to be the one country that people expect can do more than just simply protect their borders. But that does not mean that we have to get involved with everything immediately.

“We have to think through strategically what’s going to be in our long-term national interests.”

.. LEC again — International Law is arrived at by the acts and customs agreed upon by the Laws of Nations . It is not arrived at by cowardice in the face of evil , when evil will triumph , because supposedly good people do nothing , and invoke the Sergeant Schultz excuse , “I hear nothing , nothing , nothing …. ” . Part of those acts to be arrived at is for those of the forces of good to decide to stand up , they have had enough , and take action . Also , part of that situation is making sure that your word is your bond , and that your word is good . It means get your head out of your [bleep] , and get to it …

Asked about his comment – a year to the day before the poison fumes hit sleeping residents of rebel-held Damascus suburbs – that chemical weapons would be a red line for the United States, he replied: “If the U.S. goes in and attacks another country without a U.N. mandate and without clear evidence that can be presented, then there are questions in terms of whether international law supports it.”

LEC again — What a Wuss !!

… Well , What now Genius , Plead Insanity …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,June 14th,2013

… Now , What will this Scumbag do for a Defense ? Plead Insanity ?

Accused Fort Hood Gunman Cannot Use Defending Taliban Defense

..  Army psychiatrist Major Nidal Hasan cannot argue at trial that he was defending the Afghan Taliban when he opened fire in a 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, that killed 13 people, a military judge ruled on Friday. ” There was no evidence that there was any immediate threat to others from your fellow soldiers,” Colonel Tara Osborn said, denying Hasan ‘ s request to use the defense as he represents himself at his upcoming trial on 13 counts of first-degree murder.

.. Hasan, a 42-year-old U.S.-born Muslim, is accused of killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in an attack on soldiers at a readiness facility where many of those shot were preparing to deploy to Iraq or Afghanistan.

.. ” I object , ” Hasan said when the judge ruled that he could not use his chosen defense. He also asked Osborn to delay the court martial by three months to allow him to prepare a new defense strategy and add to the witness lists. Osborn did not rule on that request .

.. With this guy , he is some piece of work . People deserve justice , not stalling . Strip him of his pro – se rights [to defend himself , with himself as a lawyer] , and reinstate his standby counsel . Get the damn court – martial under way . His victims deserve a timely decision on the merits . Hasan does not .

..  Hasan deserves an adequate , but not the 4 – corners strategy that he has been using . Move things along , and let the appeals court referree while the court – martial proceeds .
