No problem guys.
I don't know if he will have consequences for what he did, but I think he should be justified because he did take an oath to protect the constitution and its people both foreign AND domestic.
I think he honored that oath when he did what he did.

I have read arguments on prior threads by some posters that he could not be a Marine because his uniform is not correct. The man is no fool and as an ex-Marine, he clearly knows that he must not wear correct uniform and thereby represent himself as a currently-serving member of the US Forces. His uniform is effectively symbolic. It says enough about who he is and what he has done in service to his country; why some missed this point and didn't even bother to check that he was no longer in the service (or at least weigh that argument) is beyond me.
I respect this guy immensely, not just for what he said so publicly (and loudly! ) and for standing up to the face of authority, but for the fact that he is a veteran who volunteered to serve his country.
In this interview, he expresses himself eloquently, he has a reasoned and balanced perspective, and is totally rational. He is clearly not some kind of nut as some might claim.
This man is an excellent representative for the people of his nation and I admire him.

WE're in the End-Times.
This nightmare is about to be over. (for Christians, but for non-believers it just now beginning). People saying that I should dump the bible and things, umm yeah right.
We have an Orwellian Super Congress Junta, forced through by Obama on August 2,
Stock markets are gyrating wildly, the only thing that is keeping it up is crazy hyper-inflationary deals. Fighting a war in a part of the world where this whole thing started, even pre-bible that is Babylon.
AMericans are stockpiling on guns and food and gold. Read St. Augustine's City of God. That book speaks to our times very strong and true.
