So the secret service is full of drunks guarding the pres and vice pres and families. If we do it in the military should we not do it in the SS too.
allegations of sexual misconduct account for the firing of 30 percent of military commanders over the past eight years. That figure that increases to 40 percent when “ethical lapses” such as sexual assault and harassment, ***********, drugs and drinking are lumped together.
Major General Baker, a two-star general who served as commander of the Joint Task Force-Horn at Camp Lamar in Djibouti, Africa, was fired for alcohol and sexual misconduct charges.
So why are these top military officials being purged? The official reasons range from mishandling nukes, to sexual misconduct, to having illegal poker chips.
of course nutjobs don't believe this, but I don't want some drunk handling any nukes!!...
Oama Reported to be Dismissing Military Leaders Who Will Not Fire on Civilians, if Ordered. 4 February 2013
this is what TP wants you to believe, nutjobs will always fall for this bullsh*t...
Did you ever think they just weren't doing their jobs ?
Oh no that couldn't be it b/c President Obama did the firing...what I read of one is he was drunk on the job but that's not a good enough excuse!!...
Beright. ..you can try Google Chrome as a free alternative to see if it helps.
Anyone else having problems opening up stories and reading articles? I contacted that "media pass" and they sent me a note back saying "This site does not support Internet Explorer 10. Please update your internet browser and the page will load". My Browser was way old until I upgraded to 10.
I have a subscription to the paper so that is not an issue.
I would to see the paper maybe once a week.
Did you ever think they just weren't doing their jobs ? The military is rife with those who were promoted beyond their capabilities ! Just read about the career of Chesty Puller !There was a man who didn't pull any punches !
I am not playing and I dont see any conspiracy. It is in the news that the generals were fired.
@teapartier, I will not play along with your conspiracy theories, find someone else...

Send a letter to the governor - tell him I said - OOOOWW****..
Teapartier...as a vet...it reminds of the Blazing Saddles scence where the "Gov. was surrounded by his "yes" men and he complained he did not get a "hurrumph from that guy". it is easy to build a concensus when all agree whether through free will or coerced compliance. tis the military and its chain of command which demands comppliance.
withstand the onsluaght of liberal progressives without descending into the chaotic cesspool that is found exampled around the world. bottom line...hate the message but not the messenger except when the messenger also happens to be the instigator and/ or inmplementer.
NCN...the President is the one responsible for the successes as well as the failures within the miliatry. the President has to assume both. we both know there are many reasons as to why people do the things they do. the military fall under almost the same blanket as our police and detention officers. we task them with an unenviable task and yes all are voluntary. however they do sign and agree to not only a code of conduct which the public has not only shredded it but deflied it to the point of almost non-existence, but also to conform to the military code of justice (UCMJ) which is an entity unto itself, which btw, have many more insulators from politcal manipulation than what we find in our current justice system. look at the Bergdahl case. the syspathetic in the media and public are trying to deflect and defend against his actions by shifting the blame onto the military. Politics and the UCMJ should never entertwine as much as the shifting sand crowd would like. society can not wit
What do you and/or your veteran pals make of this ?
9 Generals Fired, 2 Military Leaders Suspended
Wendy Clements Jensen The Congress controls the purse and makes the rules. The President in most areas can only say yea or nay. So you are braying to the wrong office. I am a vet - that talks with other vets - They still stand with our President, our Country - has they always have. I have not seen anything submitted to the President from Congress that pays our soldiers better, takes care of our vets needs - that he has refused.
