He is not active, he has been confirmed in reserve status as of this afternoon. We got that information, he was not in an active status as of yesterday when he did those interviews. He was in a reserve status all along and the last time he’s been on orders was back in October so he was in his traditional reserve status. There is a potential violation. It depends on your MOS because some MOS’s have a larger ability for upward promotion so on that you’d have to draw your own conclusion. He was with the National Guard prior to joining the national reserve. He works with an engineer unit. We have him in a currently combat engineer position, it would be groundwork level. We’re trying to give the command their time necessary to figure out how they want to manage the issue, giving them the time to have dialogue.

He probably shouldn't have been in uniform, then again, I absolutely guarantee there wouldn't be such a scandal if he didn't take such an anti-war, anti-interventionist stance. If he had 'endorsed' Perry, then FOX would have picked it up for being something patriotic. If for some reason his CO decided to bust him down for it, I guarantee they wouldn't air the news, or they would spin it.
It's like we have literally gone nowhere and it's only gotten worse. More and more fascism. The same amount of apologists, the same amount of war hawks. It never ends.
Also, to those of you saying the RP supporters would be railing on him if he supported Perry... well you are damn right they would rail on him, because he would be taking a pro-war, pro-interventionist, psychotic, bigoted, paranoid stance. The stance that causes untold suffering to millions on a global scale.
What's your excuse?
So anyway, I say good for him, I say he's setting a good example to his peers and to any of the younger enlisted under him.edit on 6-1-2012 by SyphonX because: (no reason given)
