This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My rifle is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My rifle, without me, is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will...
My rifle and I know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit...
My rifle is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will...
Before God, I swear this creed. My rifle and I are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life.
So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy, but peace!
It wasn't that long ago that Barack Obama held up Yemen as proof of the success of his counter-terrorism strategy. Now, Yemen is in chaos, the government has been overthrown by the Sunni Huthis militia,in conjunction with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). Amidst all of this chaos, ISIS is actively recruiting and in direct competition with AQAP.
Meanwhile, the security situation at the U.S. Embassy in Yemen has steadily deteriorated.
|Vladimir Putin is certain to be keeping a close eye on the Obama Administration's|
decision to have U.S. Marines surrender their weapons to foreign terrorists.
So that is what they have done. The order to evacuate the embassy's been made and reportedly, everyone has left. All classified materials were reportedly destroyed.
So far, I don't know that anyone can fault the Obama for this particular decision. His failed Middle East strategy? Yes.
But WHO made the decision to have our U.S. Marines SURRENDER their weapons to the Yemeni "authorities?" By authorities, of course, they mean the Yemeni jihadists who shout "Death to America" while shooting their AK-47's in the air.
One thing is certain. Vladimir Putin, Iran, China, ISIS, and every tin-pot dictator around the world is paying a LOT of attention to this demonstration of American weakness. You can beat your ass on that!
Megan Kelly has reported that the order for the Marines to surrender came directly from the US State Department. In other words, from John Kerry. The same piece of dung that slandered his shipmates and brothers in arms to Congress and the American people, accusing them of atrocities against women and children, and behaving like "Genghis Khan." The same John Kerry who threw his medals over the White House fence. The same John Kerry whom his swift boat shipmates accused of turning tail while U.S. soldiers were under fire.
Now he makes the decision to humiliate our Marines by having them SURRENDER THEIR WEAPONS?!
Every American should be furious at this and to demand answers as to WHY an order so OUTRAGEOUS was given to US Marines!
