A medal for keyboard heroes

President Barack Hussein Obama is not gutting the U.S. military, he’s working at making it irrelevant.

In public Obama professes an admiration for US troops, bestowing medals of bravery on them in media-blitzed photo ops.  Wife Michelle plays a role in the public display carried by media propaganda that crows “The Obamas love the US military”.

But behind the scenes, Obama, the Artful Dodger of Modern Times, lobs bombs at the US military without running the risk he’ll ever be caught tossing.

The never-ending Marxist strategy the cunning Obama uses against the military should be called his two-step tango. It’s a toss-and-duck operationplayed out from the convenient safety of afar.

In an era where volunteer soldiers are sent into an arena where the enemy is better protected than them by agovernment who doesn’t believe in them;  in which returning veterans are DHS-categorized as terrorists and where media portrayals depict a majority of soldiers as victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD),  the Pentagon is creating a medal awarded to newly-morphed troops—faceless drone strike launchers sitting safe from all harm behind computer screens.

“Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Wednesday that for the first time the Pentagon is creating a medal that can be awarded to troops who have a direct impact on combat operations, but do it from afar.” (NBC News, Feb. 13, 2013).

In other words, medals for the conveniently safe with no skin in the game.

    Feel good medals for everyone. But they don’t know who Chris Kyle is. Assholes!

    For years I’ve believed the opposite of what that lying SOB has to say.

    “Those who stayed home, served too.”

    Let’s just give everybody a medal!

    I was working and paying taxes while our sons and daughters were dying in far off lands – so I did MY part, too!

    I want a pretty one – with ribbons!

    Does it look something like this?
    <–
    No, that's not fair. We need what they do. But I do resent the new Obama sit-on-your-ass-at-a-keyboard medal OUTRANKING the bronze star.

    What was his most recent idea in that arena? "Courageous Restraint?" That's the one that looks like a purple heart only it's shitstain brown and has a yellow stripe down the middle.

    @ Boobie… It’s oK… I know that we’re safe cuz Preezy told me Al Queda is dead and soon there will be no need for medals cuz there will be no wars. I also sleep better at night knowing that Ft. Hood was just a case of “workplace violence” and not terrorism like those bad people over at Fox said.

    The real shame is that this administration is doing it’s very best to diminish and demean ALL things American… that is the “fundamental transformation” the Kenyan was talking about and thanks to all the scum in the cities… I get to hold hands with them while this retard walks us toward oblivion. I have never felt so unsure in my entire life.

    @ Dadof3 … I can’t wait till the news carries a story about how some pimply-faced “warrior” snapped and went on a rampage because the guys in his company were making fun his “World of Warcraft” medal or his “Call of Duty” citation… ya know it’s gonna happen.

    I love those fuzzy black and white videos of drone monitors. The other day, I watched one that showed a savage terrorist getting blown up. I sat up in my chair and yelled, “YEAH! Way to go!”

    A week later, my Participation Medal came in the mail for the important part that I had played in the incident.

    Don’t snicker you guys but I proudly wear my “Cold War Veteran” cap. I was there during the Bay Of Pigs, The Kennedy Assination, and the erection of the Berlin Wall, sitting on my bunk in full gear, waiting. But nothing happened. I never got a medal.
    And I say in all sincerity, Thank God.

    @Claudia — Thank your father the next time you talk to him.

    My father flew 30 missions in B-17s over Germany, served a year in Korea, almost went to Vietnam but did send two sons there. No major medals to speak of but this would have had him shaking his head.

    Now we have to have participation trophies for the military so their self esteem doesn’t get damaged.

    Just stick a fork in me. I’m done.

    A prominent general tells us reassuringly that we will continue to have the finest aircraft, the finest missles, the finest ships, the best tanks, the best artillary, etc., but we just won’t have any spare parts for them, or any properly trained, competent people to uperate them. You know, like Obama’s mentors, the Soviets?
