Another aerial close call as Russian jet barrel-rolls over U.S. aircraft
When is the Commander in Chief going to start acting like a commander in chief and quit letting the USA keep getting humiliated and slapped around by the The Judo Guy and the rest of the world? It is pathetic.
Pick up that red phone in the Oval Office and make one call. Quit fucking with our people or the next time I am going to take decisive action. End of conversation
This PC/DC (diplomatically correctness) nonsense and passive demeanor has it’s limits and I think they have been far exceeded by the head guy.
Not only is Obama making the USA look like a fool but he is putting all of the military in harms way by letter Putin push him around. How are these men on board the ship supposed to know if one of those pilots are going to open up on them or not. Circumstances such as this is the prime reason why rules of engagement were drawn up.
Rules of Engagement (ROE) are rules or directives to military forces (including individuals) that define the circumstances, conditions, degree, and manner in which the use of force, or actions which might be construed as provocative, may be applied. They provide authorization for and/or limits on, among other things, the use of force and the employment of certain specific capabilities. In some nations, ROE have the status of guidance to military forces, while in other nations, ROE are lawful commands. Rules of Engagement do not normally dictate how a result is to be achieved but will indicate what measures may be unacceptable.
It reminds me of a guy that likes to act big and bad but it was all a front; the guy is a coward. When any head of a family (Obama USA) stands by and watches their family member’s bet beat up and humiliated, that does say much for the father.
I am sure that under different circumstances (Obama not wanting to run the entire show) the people on the aircraft carrier that are being buzzed do not need his permission to act in their defense by shooting these planes down. But as we have seen, Obama has to be the ring leader and run the entire circus. He should be ashamed of himself for humiliating this country.
February 11th – Iran captured our Navy personal and they did not defend themselves, I am sure they were given orders not to.
They were treated like dogs and even paraded by their captors in front of the Iranian people making the USA look even more foolish then were all ready are, if that is possible.
What happened to the pride and dignity we once had???????
This whole Casa Bianca thing was supposed to be just about playing golf, traveling around the world on someone else dime and playing politics. There comes a time when the Commander in Chief is called upon to act like a commander in chief and make the hard decisions. The time is now.
I really doubt if Obama has called Putin yet.
The games have gone on long enough. Time to act.
