So you don't know what to expect but you feel the need to comment on the "sheer amount of protection"?
From what I have seen in the past that was pretty standard. High priority target and all usually calls for a little beef


Yes, as I have said before if it wasn't for conjecture and opinion what's the point in coming to ATS, otherwise the place would certainly be quiet. If it was only about facts, conspiracies are out of the question and you would have 5 members talking about gardening and grocery shopping.

37 vehicles would definitely be considered a high priority target alright. Plus what is parked and on foot. I would also imagine a couple of helos as well. And here on ATS people complain about others driving SUV's burning higher volumes of fuel.

There's an old saying, I believe the Roman Cicero may have coined it... Or not...

Anyway...

If you want peace, prepare for war.

You don't necessarily have wage war, but if prospective enemies see that you are, however reluctantly, willing to do so? They might think twice before starting a war.

Others, however, did notice.

Maybe those someones will think about it, and be inspired to get involved politically, if they weren't before?

Obama ignores them? Not surprising, assuming for a moment he even knew of it.

But maybe, just maybe, it'll change someone else's mind.

Your support for Obama here on ATS will certainly get his attention.

I think you are absolutely correct, I look at everything that I can on a personal level first. Kind of like your neighbor isn't going to kick your door in during a rampage if he knows you're a supporter of the second amendment.

I've just about had it with vets.

Bunch of socialist moochers the lot of em.

Free health care, free money, free housing, free free free.

Sick of pandering to these losers, you did a job, you were paid for that job, you knew the risks going in. We don't owe them a thing.

And don't talk to me about them protecting our freedom, the last war that was true was WWII those vets deserve respect.

Rest of em are just moochers and socialists.


First off. It is not "just a job". Name any other job you cant quit and go home any time you want to. Name a single other job that requires you by threat of fine and imprisonment to work days at a time sometimes, and way over 40 hours a week, with no overtime compensation. Name any job that is like being a soldier.

There are private contractors, but they are not anything like being a soldier. [Private contractors can say no to any job they are given, they can quit any time they want, they are paid many many times more for performing the same functions.

Do you see where this is going?

Soldiers do it for the public good, it is like charity work honestly. Because we would have to pay the average soldier hundreds of thousands a year to even begin to compensate them like their private sector counterparts.

As for the rest of your post, in the words of roger the alien from American dad, "it took some doing, but I managed to wipe my butt with the entire thing".

Haven't we all had just about enough of Obozo the Klown and his circus acts in general? Go Vets! I am proud of your disdain and disrespect towards the sickening nonsense that is Obummer and his cronies. You have my attention and gratitude!

Bless you all!

I got paid $898.00 dollars a month. Sounds like amazing compensation for the job requirements. If people joined the military they didn't do it to get rich. Fu#K all those people that lost limbs and families too. They knew that joining the military meant having your wife leave you because they took a IED. Fu#K all those people who can never hug their kids again because they lost arms. They got paid, right? Fu#K all those people who gave years of their lives to doing what they thought was right. And Fu#K you and everybody who starred you until you put on that uniform and go through what those disabled vets did.

I never said I had it rough but sounds to me your life sucks and you're just blaming everyone else for your misfortunes.


No, unlike what people think of "liberals" I am not blaming anyone else for my "misfortunes" other than myself, and in fact I feel quite fortunate. I have a hard job sure I manage a car wash and detail center that does over 300 cars on average a day, It pays the bills, and I'm able to take care of myself and my son. Would I like to make more? Sure, but it is what it is and as long as he's well fed, happy, and I can make sure to get him presents for his birthday and Christmas, I think I'm doing damn good.


And jealous when other people actually DESERVE benefits so you want everyone to be miserable like you.


Deserve? Sounds like an entitlement mentality to me. What you DESERVE, is to be paid for the work you do. Do the rest of us get paid housing, clothing, medical care, food, weaponry, vacation pay? (and that's not to mention the stuff you get when you get OUT of the service.) No, we work our asses off at a job we hate just to scrape by and we are damn thankful for it.

Yea, people like to paint liberals as bad lazy good for nothing moochers, but some of us just generally don't like conservative policies. We don't like the xenophobia, we don't like the bigoted mentality, we don't like the me first screw the rest of the country attitude.

Can you imagine the uproar the conservatives would have if you explained that the taxpayers pay for all that you get without telling them that you are in the military? Some of them would seriously have a coronary.


It's okay you're entitled to your opinion because we soldiers have fought for your rights.


Hold it right there, let's be honest here, there has not been a single war that the soldiers participating in the war fought for US Citizens rights since World War II. If you are a WWII vet, thank you for your service, the rest of em fought for corporate greed. I'm not saying you had a choice, or were in any way at fault for the war(s) you were ordered to fight in, but it certainly wasn't for anyone's freedom. It was for money, pure and simple. Iraq? Oil, Afghanistan? Heroin (and opium derivatives).

No, there was no "way of life" in danger, there was only greed in danger and the almighty dollar. Again, not your fault, you were just doing what you were told. I'm not blaming you personally for the wars. But we really need to be real here.

What you don't get is the benefits your upset about is part of the compensation for the job they did. They agreed to do a job which included as part of the pay the free free free your crying about.

And goofy Obama, the spineless, soulless puppet, will just laugh it off as anger over the VA issue not realizing it’s anger over his sorry ass way of governing which equals a big zero.

Obama is not a proactive president he is a reactive president and even there he is a gross failure.

On this issue he did lie that he would do something and like ALL of his promises he did nothing as these people suffered and died and what does he do:

Go to JZ concerts in the white house

Lazy ? No they RULE higher learning they have infiltrated the system effectively THAT takes a o lot of hard work BELIEVE me I would DEFINITELY give them that.
But no skills at practical application,THATS for sure.

But to herald the DOWNFALL of America by OVERWHELMING it with an excessive welfare burden?
I KNOW an attack SOCIALLY when I see it I couldn't give two S##TS about gays being married,the gun issue is dead in the water for them and they mostly completely forgot HISTORY. They evidently have NO IDEA what defense means (just the money it costs and hurting people),FEELINGS get in the way of operation when something MUST be done and done right.When OTHERS have been successful before you, improve on THAT not throw it away in some idealog's exploration of political wanderings only to accomplish increased skills in FAILURE.
Then in order NOT to get CRIMINALLY prosecuted it must be SECRET or covered up.Those who came before ARE aware HOW to do that .THIS guy has screwed up almost all he has tried ,TOO much to a definable PATTERN of AMERICA bad Islam good. Don't talk to me about the fact there are moderatesin that faith, THEY HAVE dropped the ball HORRIBLY and so such IRRESPONSIBILITY allowed this mess to FLOURISH .Sort of like us giving Charley mason a NEONAZI political party because WE are WHITE,and letting them do as they please against those who aren't as THEY would have them.
We'd kill before HE would complete such pointless escapades.Liberals are POWERLESS to effect change accept by obfuscation and deception ,they have learned it from the Republicans ( AFTER A FEW DECADES that is) the problem is NOT I want you kept down.It is YOU ARE CAUSING A GLOBAL MESS that the "Y"s WILL pay for in carnage once all the mistakes FINALLY pile up and a hot war blossoms from the current resurgence of the ONGOING cold one (RUSSIA regrouped ) and YOU EVIDENTLY just want to see America "PAY" by empowering our enemies,talk about biting your NOSE off to spite your face...

I couldn't DO a mundane job like managing a thing UGH almost as bad as a cubical zombie. Good job for handling that though some of us don't DO well in SOCIETY.

If your home or way of life were under attack from a Foreign Nation.

How quickly you would be cheering the arrival of the United States Marines.

I would submit the reason you have never had to deal with an invading Army.

Are the very men that are receiving your ire...

I'm not angry at the men, I'm angry at the entitlement mentality pervasive in the ranks of the military.

You have to admit the military is completely socialist by design. And it doesn't end with the enlistment. Socialized medical care, housing, everything they want handed to them on a silver platter.

If any other group of people in the US got half what discharged military people get conservatives would be rioting in the streets!
