Appears there is lots of ‘negative’ feedback from the left over the movie Lone Survivor…
Here’s a clip from Judge Jeannie and Chris Heben (former SEAL).

It’s a pretty good fisking of the left’s whole argument…
It IS an outstanding movie, doesn’t sugarcoat what happened, and tells it like it was from Luttrell’s POV.  There is some ‘Hollyweird’ action surrounding the village stuff that didn’t happen, but all in all it’s not a bad portrayal.

In other news…

The President, the Commander in Chief, has made the Rules of Engagement (ROE) so difficult, that our troops are often killed before they can even get permission to fight.

Nothing has been done to stop our troops from being murdered by the Afghanis they are training, either.

Now, the President wants the US to sign on to the UNs International Criminal Court (ICC), which would allow the UNs ICC to arrest and try US troops for War Crimes, without the legal protections guaranteed under US Law, and from which there is no appeal.

The President, with his Democratic control of the Senate, has nearly all the power. If the non-establishment can take back the Senate in 2014, our troops can once again be protected from unnecessary danger.

Please consider this, and send it on to your mailing lists. Thank You and Semper Fi.

Interestingly enough, when GWB was president you heard about the the military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan almost daily.  With Obama in the White House, the mainstream media has been strangely quiet.

More than 1,000 American soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan in the last 27 months. This is more than the combined total of the nine years before. Thirty have died in August. During the last month, over 50 additional NATO and US servicemen have been murdered, inside jobs by those who are hired to be a force for good in Afghanistan.

The commander in chief is AWOL.  Not a peep, although he ordered the White House flag flown at half-staff for the Sikhs that were killed. There is a deep disgust, a fury, growing in the ranks of the military against the indifferent and total incompetence of this president.

It has taken on a dangerous tone.  No one knows what to do about him, but the anger runs deep as the deaths continue with no strategic end in sight to the idiocy of this war.  Obama has had 4 years to end this futile insanity, during which time he has vacationed, golfed, campaigned, and generally ignored the plight of our men and women in uniform {and so much more}.

But, there is now a movement afoot in the armed services to launch a massive get out the vote drive against this president.  Not just current active duty types, but the National Guard, Reserves, the retired, and all other prior service members. This is no small special interest group, but many millions of veterans who can have an enormous impact on the outcome of the November election if they all respond.

The million military retirees in Florida alone could mean an overwhelming victory in that state if they all show up at the polls. It might not keep another one hundred U.S. troops from dying between now and November, but a turn out to vote by the military against this heart breaking lack of leadership can make a powerful statement that hastens a change to the indifference of this shallow little man who just lets our soldiers die.

Veterans:  Please do participate and forward this to your fellow veterans & friends.

And once again the military votes will be "lost". Yes the military hates Obummer but strangely those who do never seem to get anywhere and usually get retired early.

Even more reason, then, to get out the veteran votes.

Rev. Paul,

Lone Survivor, was a great movie. At the end of the movie a dedication was made for the actual Seals and their families. In our theater not one person left early, everyone watched this dedication, and when the screen went black we all applauded.

We need this massive get out and vote drive for all Veteran's to vote!!!

Agreed, Sandy - and thanks!
