America has been fighting wars with one arm behind her back ever since Hiroshima and Nagasaki, when she could kick anyone's azz. If you're gonna fight a war pull all the freakin' stops out, otherwise what's the freakin' sense?

Obama's new tactics involve leaking sensitive information that can get our best contacts killed just to make himself look good for re-election.

Killing a man by remote control is immoral. If you can't look him in the eye and shove the knife into his guts, then you are a coward.

It's getting to the point where "defeated" may be too soft a word to use here....

Don't be a fool! It's much better to blast those bastards by remote control, because the end result is still the same. The US can now fight all wars without risking any soldier's lives, and save our taxpayers a fortune in the process!!

The exponential cost increases of cutting edge technology are enormous to defend a nation. But we are not defending a nation but policing and ruling many parts of the world. We also have used political correctness, diversity and quotas to water down our abilities in stressful situations. If you remove our special forces in all branches of service and the top percentage of military men in the same, we would lose man to man to most of the world. We are a spoiled feminist heavy bunch that has helped to increase the cost of defense several fold and wil in the end bring the end of America as we know it. In fact it has ended and a new meaner nation has developed ans will become as nasty as some of the worse governments in human history when fully realized. When it is over, many will be dead, incarcerated, maimed and whatever else. And for a period of time, a lesson wil be learned. Something for nothing and all are the same rings hallow in a fiat currency doubtful world that is teetering on a darker age.

People need to realize that one well placed EMP attack could take out most of the computer technology used today! Hopefully the power grid powering these devices has been hardened. Too much dependence on technology could cause real trouble in the future.

All the high tech gadgetry will never replace infantry to take/hold positions. Technology may augment and/or enhance the capabilities of the armed forces but cannot take the place of troops using this equipment.

AS PER THE 1991 Harvard Law Review Digest directory, which BHO was prez of at the time, the usurper himself claimed he was "born in Kenya". Obama, by his own admission, was not born to two citizen parents, he is not a “natural born citizen” and, therefore, is ineligible to be a candidate

Nick Adams in "No Time for Sergeants" said "The infantry, theys the ones what does the real fightin', everybody else is just helpers."
As a former-Marine computer operator & retired Army-grunt I couldn't agree more. I worked harder physically in a week as a grunt than in a year as a clerk but earned the same pay in both jobs.
Obama WAS born in Kenya.
Obama IS an illegal-alien.
