Political Scum and the Knives In Our Soldier’s Backs

I understand deliberation, getting others opinions and taking time to make the smart choice, but you can wait forever and making quick choices can be necessary quite often in life.

We have people Dying in Afghanistan, we do not have enough combat troops on the ground and when the Generals are telling you need them, you need to listen!  They rushed the Bail-out trough real fast, not time to wait, it’s too urgent, but the second a General begs for more troops for a war the President himself said was the Necessary War”, what happens?  The President flies of to Europe to suck up to the Olympic Comity and now we get this:

“Senators diverted $2.6 billion in funds in a defense spending bill to pet projects largely at the expense of accounts that pay for fuel, ammunition and training for U.S. troops, including those fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to an analysis.”

2.6 Billion!!!!  What the fucking hell is wrong with you people!  If you don’t want to fight the war pull them the fuck out, but if we are going to fight, win this fucking thing and fight it like it needs to be fought!!!  Yeah I’m angry, maybe it’s the fact I have watched one two many people crying over loved ones while the Government plays politics with people’s lives.  Maybe it’s because I have friends and family over there.  Maybe it’s the fact  the Government siphons off funds the troops need for their little pork projects and bullshit then the government sits on it’s hands and does nothing while our men and woman are dying over there waiting for the backup that isn’t coming!

Maybe I have a lot of reasons to be angry but it’s justified.

I’m not angry about the war, wars happen.  Yes, war is a terrible thing, unfortunately the world isn’t perfect so war is sometimes necessary.  It’s life, deal with it.  I’m angry about the fact that Washington is willing to send our boys over there to die but won’t make sure they have the funds and resources to get the job done.

2.6 BILLION!!!  You are thieves, bastards and cowards!  Every last one of you! The government took so much money from the Navy (to fight the war) that the Navy can’t even give out Reenlistment bonus anymore and can’t even afford to move people to their new duty stations during the normal rotation process (it’s called a PCS Transfer for non-military types) because of the lack of funding.  Where is the money going because it sure as hell isn’t going to making sure that we have enough men in the field to get the job done and that was the whole reason the Navy has been getting shorted on funds, so those funds could go towards making sure that the people on the front lines had the training, equipment and supplies they needed.  2.6 Billion from the fund that is for training and supplies for what?! They are sending people into the field without the supplies they need and without the training they need and without the backup they need!!!

Let me explain something to Washington D.C., yes you control the government and the President is the Commander In Chief, but you want a war fought, it’s fought by the military, and they are the ones that have to die, not you, so when the generals tell you they need more troops you fucking give it to them.  Unlike you, they have spent years in the military, they know what needs to be done, the reason Vietnam was such a fuckhole was because the war was run by the politicians in Washington and not by the soldiers that actually had to fight the thing.  Either give the soldiers what they need and get the fuck out of the way.

On a last note, if you are incumbents I will not be voting for you.  I recommend everyone else do the same, fuck it, never vote for an incumbents again. If they don’t want to make term limits we should just give them ones with our votes.  Throw all the scum out!!!

Yeah I’m angry, and if you’re not I can only imagine that you have no soul because I don’t have any other explanations.

I hate it here…
