Maybe. Just hope good men are not killed needlessly defending overmatched women.
A weak link in any military unit can be devastating. I was an Infantry Officer for over fifteen years and we know that if a soldier is injured,it takes multiple soldiers to take care of that one plus the weakness of one soldier jeopardizes any mission. I never had a female in a infantry unit,but I remember seeing female soldiers whining about getting a bruise on the leg and other complaints that real soldiers never complain about.

Flack says they were transported out of Libya and sent to South American there they were trucked to Mexico where they were then transported by mules(not mules), into America waiting for orders to strike. So if your 400 are with those then they are in the U.S.
Don't shoot me I am only the messenger.
The U.S. government calls it the “one of the most lethal” weapons of its kind — an advanced, portable missile, designed to knock planes out of the sky. Why wouldn't they be here?

RealDave I don’t know what Planet your living on…Dave All Americans should be outraged that congressional staffers are exempt from Obamacare, taxpayers on the hook to pay 75% of staffers Health Care premiums nothing like a 75% pay raise…Right!!
You people are dumber than shit.

Right now these people are on the Federal payroll & get the standard federal employee benefit package.

This package includes health insurance options which the government as employer pays part & the employee pays a share.

The only thing that changed under the ACA was these certain employees'(Congressmen & their staffers) options would be limited to what is available on the exchanges. Congress is discussing how best to pay for the federal government's share to the exchanges

How did you get so stupid?

There must be a reason somewhere why every Democrat in Congress wants to be exempted from ObamaKare.
What do the Democrats think is wrong with ObamaKare? They forced it onto the population. Why do they hate it?

In addition to ending the subsidy for elected officials and appointees, and limiting the contributions to staff health care, the Vitter and Enzi’s bill would also clarify that members of Congress do not have the authority to exempt any of their staffers from purchasing healthcare on the exchanges.

The Global Threat
For U.S. officials, the biggest fear is that terrorists or drug cartels would acquire black market MANPADS and use them in South America or even in the U.S. That was the burden borne by Ambassador Bloomfield in the mid 2000's. At that time, Bloomfield says there were estimates of upwards of a million MANPADS in the world. Most were presumed to be in "responsible military hands." However, an undisclosed number was known to be in countries under little to no official control.
During the Iraq surge, Bloomfield says many pilots sighted shoulder-fired missiles being launched at them. In 2007, he says the terrorist group al Shabaab in Somalia used a very sophisticated MANPAD to shoot down a U.N. transport plane and posted video of it on the Internet.
"These are missiles that can hit an airplane from any angle. They don't have to be lined up behind the head of the engine. They can reach 10,000 feet," says Bloomfield.
As I posted earlier , hazy details. would you agree that hundreds is fewer than thousands? Would you agree that MANPAD's are not US made Stingers?

Would you agree that Obama was not POTUS in 2007?

Did you hear about this yet?
"The UN said it would ask the US about a report in the German magazine Der Spiegel that the NSA had hacked into UN communications systems and was listening in on diplomatic video conferences.
"The Der Spiegel report, based on revelations from NSA leaker Edward Snowden, said the NSA also eavesdropped on European Union diplomats in New York and was particularly interested in intelligence on the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)."
Uh-oh...
We need leadership in the White House right about now.

Let it up to two Republicans to play politics & dupe the feeble minded.
The Federal Government currently pays for a sizable portion of its employee's health insurance. It is a benefit, not a subsidy.

Pretty hazy headline eh?
No mention of where the missiles came from or where they could have gone.
Well__the numbers have been downgraded dramatically since then but right wing losers like the big numbers and the mystery.
Petreaus was CIA director when the Benghazi consulate and nearby CIA base when? Do you recall any of his testimony on the subject?
Tell me a story Galt.
Benghazi was a spontaneous reaction to a racist video, completely unrelated to the CIA or to missiles.

Nobody to blame but ourselves.

The United States CDC (Center for Disease Control) provided Iraq with biological samples up until 1989 for "Medical research and other purposes".
The United Kingdom paid in full for the Iraqi chlorine plant where mustard gas was manufactured.
Brazil provided around 100 tons of mustard gas in the early 80's before the British funded plant was up and running.
Singapore and India provided the ingredients for VX nerve agent and yet still more Tabun.
Egypt and Spain both provided the majority of Iraq's munitions that were designed to carry and disperse the chemical weapons.
Germany helped build Iraqi chemical weapons facilities such as laboratories, bunkers, an administrative building and first production buildings.
France built Iraq's Osirak nuclear reactor in the late 1970s.
Italy gave Iraq plutonium extraction facilities that advanced Iraq’s nuclear weapon program along with 75,000 shells and rockets designed for chemical weapons.
Swiss companies aided in Iraq’s nuclear weapons development in the form of specialized presses, milling machines, grinding machines, electrical discharge machines, and equipment for processing uranium to nuclear weapon grade.
Austria, Singapore and Portugal were also involved.
Look it up if you don't believe me.
