Keep our soldiers safe

EDITOR:

To all my vet buddies and friends, please pass this on to your friends and relatives all over the U.S. Ask them if they would put this information in the paper where they live.

This is an Oath Keepers Request. Let us all get together for 2014. You may not be a veteran but you might know someone who is to pass this on to. Urgent. A movement has been started by our armed forces, to get out the vote in 2014.

They are organizing themselves, but all of us can help. 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 Afghanis they are training, either.

Now, the president wants the U.S. to sign on to the UNs International Criminal Court (ICC), which would allow the UNs ICC to arrest and try U.S. troops for war crimes, without the legal protections guaranteed under U.S. law, and from which there is no appeal.

The president, with his Democrat 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.

Interestingly enough, when Bush was president you heard about the military deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan 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 died last August. During the past few months, over 50 additional NATO and U.S. 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 indifference and incompetence of this president.

It has taken on a very 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.

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 this November elections, 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 100 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.

God bless and keep our soldiers safe.
