There is another aspect to this that I do not think people are looking at. In 1971 when I joined the Army there were a lot more troops in support roles. Those support roles are now civilian army careers in Accounting, Medical Officer, Attorney, Medical Technology, Civil Engineering, Nursing, Computer Engineering, Psychology, Contracting, Quality Assurance, Electrical Engineering, Safety and Occupational Health/Social Work, Human Resource Management, Cyber, Industrial Hygiene, Foreign Affairs, Information Technology, Public Affairs & Communications Media, Logistics Management, Program Management, Mechanical Engineering, not to mention the base laundry and the mess hall. Currently there are more than 330,000 civilian men and women working in every profession imaginable that are not active duty military.

Too bad he didn't learn anything in all those years, judging by his performance.

"He is an incompetent, inexperienced child in a man's job." Ah yes, the 'childlike' qualities of the ***** people. Where have I heard that before? Still is is pretty remarkable that this 'child' accepted a two-year position as Visiting Law and Government Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School to work on his first book. He then taught at the University of Chicago Law School for twelve years—as a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996, and as a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004—teaching constitutional law. Tell me notSocialist, what institution of higher learning have you taught constitutional law at? :>)

"I guess you would say that by voting for him we betrayed our own race, right? "

No, it just means you're stupid.

Same old comments from the same old people. B-o-r-i-n-g! The question is Do you support Sec. Hagel shrinking the Army to it's smallest size in 74 years? My answer-NO. End of discussion.

notSocialist, Well at least you did not try to lie and say that you did not refer to him as 'boy'. You seemed to just skip over that part in your reply. As I said before, I do find it amusing that while most racists today are too cowardly to admit the truth, people like you cannot help but slip and then giggle thinking no one will call you on it.

That was quite a rant, TripleD. I'm not going to respond to all that. I could crush every bit of it, but it wouldn't do any good as everyone else already knows better, and you are a fully engaged true believer. I will give you credit. You had to dig real deep to come up with all that. I don't think the history books will be written that way but, if you're lucky, there will be a footnote explaining that Obama did have a very loyal base of followers who obeyed without question and you were a proud part of that...All Hail Obama!

Just looked at a comment pretty much at the start here wondering about bases overseas.

I think the main reason we have them is for logistics. We couldn't fly straight to Afghanistan so needed to stop in Germany. If we are going to have a force in the pacific theater, we need bases in Japan.

" Very true statement or should I say fact. Now deny it. "

As I said, blowmont, I despise anyone who promotes socialist policies. Perhaps you just can't understand that.

"President Obama is 'Destroying America', all the while hoping some nut with a gun solves your problem for you. That is your Treason."

First of all, that is not treason. Second f all, I don't want him made a martyr. I want him removed from office in disgrace.

"I guess all the whites who voted for Obama and got him elected are racist too, right, Triple Dullard?" Yes nutSwastika, we are all racists because we voted for a black man. I guess you would say that by voting for him we betrayed our own race, right?

notSocialist, In one of your earlier posts you referred to President Obama as 'boy'. No, I will not go back and look through all your demented posts to find it. I do find it amusing that while most racists today are too cowardly to admit the truth, people like you cannot help but slip and then giggle thinking no one will call you on it.

"Please document my 'treason', if you know what the word means. Document it or be exposed for the lying POS you are." You and your buddies constantly crying about how President Obama is 'Destroying America', all the while hoping some nut with a gun solves your problem for you. That is your Treason.

"Racism is at the heart of this whether you want to admit it or not. "

Another lie. You have no idea what people are thinking. You are not omnipotent, nor clairvoyant.

I hate socialism and anyone who advances socialism. You know, people like you.

President Obama would not have been so stupid as to squander an authorization of force. President Bush on the other hand was all about payback and I believe the main reason that there are 4,487 dead, and 32,226 wounded Americans is because Saddam Hussein tried to assassinate President Bush Sr. after the first Iraq war in Kuwait. The Bush family are all about payback and will go as far as to out undercover CIA agents who reveal the lies used to justify the Iraqi war.

"those that haven't become smitten with his phony "hope and change" crap or been bought off with government freebies". Every President has some theme or campaign slogan. It is the was you accuse people of being smitten or being bought off that shows your pure hatred of this president. I do not believe such hatred can be cultivated in politics alone and no President Kerry would not have had such a solid opposition to him.
