Not One More Drop of American Blood


God in Heaven protect our warriors from the Washington, DC arm chair generals as You alone are the Hope we can trust.

Members of Congress and civilian bureaucrats that can't balance a budget, spending America into eternal debt, participate in all sorts of immoral behavior, fully corrupt, can't drive themselves from point A to point B, speak at the level of 8 year olds, are only focused on a personal self serving agenda, totally devoid of courage, integrity, personal responsibility...in short are greedy cowards...with no credible experience in national security and less than zero military service, now want to second guess a seasoned military chain of command in devising strategy and tactics in the Afghanistan war.

The political apparatus in Washington, DC has abandoned our troops in harms way, indecision is allowing the enemy to refit their forces and costing American lives, has sent a message of American political weakness and surrender to the Islamic butchers, while giving scant attention that our warriors are giving their lives and blood while indecision reigns.

If Afghanistan is a "war of necessity" as the Commander In Chief says, how can any level of leadership allow our men and women to be without the resources to win??

Nothing is more despicable than sending men and women into war and then betraying them while in battle...it would be entirely appropriate for the military chain of command to withdraw all troops to safe areas, expect a victory position within 72 hours from the Commander in Chief with credible proof of resources to win, otherwise, the military chain of command resigns.

Not one more drop of American blood spilled while Washington D.C. leadership cowers in surrender.

We have fallen into the old trap of allowing politicians to direct the conduct of "hostilities" just as we did in Vietnam. Politicians dictate the targets, and set unrealistic rules for conducting a hostility.

When one goes to war, the sole objective is to reduce the enemy to ashes, swiftly and without pause. Nothing less is acceptable. Not since the Japanese surrendered, has there been a conflict "won" by the United States.

The Korean war has not ended. Peace talks are still ongoing. In the meantime, the enemy, North Korea, has obtained nuclear capability. Now, is that a way to conduct a hostility? Not in my mind. An unconditional surrender is apparently something from the past.

This planet is a rough neighborhood. Either you terminate the bully, or you allow him to kill your family members one at a time over the long run.
Those family members happen to be our brothers and sisters in arms.

To the current & thank God temporary POTUS - These immortal words stand as a reminder that hesitancy and dereliction of duty as Commander in Chief are NOT an option:
"There is a rank due to the United States among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war."
- George Washington
