Have We Forgotten Benghazi Already?
How many more Americans will be put in harm's way and abandoned by this administration? And how many of these feckless politicians will be rewarded for their irresponsible and, dare I say it, evil actions? Think of Hillary in line to run as next president. How would you like her being commander and chief if you were a Marine (or a Marine's mom) at an embassy in a hot spot? This administration has treated our military like cannon fodder to be used up and spit out. And as the body count rises, the world is less safe than ever!
Meanwhile we continue to meddle in affairs everywhere. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel recently said the world is exploding all over and promised that we'll be everywhere. He obviously knows nothing about history. Every country that has tried to fight on multiple fronts has crashed and burned. Look what happened to the U.K. We cannot be the world's policeman and we have no business meddling in the affairs of sovereign states where we have no interest. The GOP needs to shut up about Russia and the Ukraine. It is their civil war not ours and do we really want to escalate the conflict? Do we really want to resurrect the Cold War? I remember practicing air raids as a child. Please...let's not go there! This incompetent administration needs to be held accountable. For that matter, so do the hawks in the GOP. All the drum beating against Putin is dangerous. For one thing our wimp in the White House is no match for his Russian counterpart. Can anyone imagine Putin going to bed during a crisis so he'll be fresh as a daisy for a big fundraiser the next day?
We forget Benghazi at our peril -- especially the peril of our young men and women in the military.
