Time Out! I need to load my gun!

“What are we supposed to use, harsh language?” That was a great line from the movie “Aliens.” But, apparently some current US troops in Afghanistan aren’t even able to do that. Soldiers are being ordered to patrol with a loaded magazine in weapon, bolt closed, weapon on safe, no round in the chamber.

This protocol is aimed at gaining more local support. Did anybody forget the incredibly important idea of protecting our soldiers? I think this underscores a fundamental difference in how conservatives and democrats view armies and soldiers. Conservatives believe armies should go defeat the enemy. Democrats think armies are like large police forces.

I think armies should win battles, wars, and put the fear of God Almighty in other nations (for even thinking of messing with the USA). I believe diplomats and politicians, like Presidents should seek cooperation from other nations because we would rather work with them to create a peaceful world than wipe them off the face of the earth for seeking to harm us in any way.

President Obama needs to grow up, man up and tell the world to saddle up and join us.

Thus saith me.
