I was 12 years old-- We knew it was coming, but of course, we did not know when. We knew it was a frightening gambit, and many of the Allied forces would suffer devastating losses. BUT it had to be done, no matter the sacrifice. Let me quote one of our greatest military LEADERS, since George Washington:

"Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force|

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in -arms ,on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944| Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940- 41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. OUR HOME FRONTS have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to Victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!

Good Luck! and let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking."

signed: Dwight D. Eisenhower

CAN YOU IMAGINE what would have happened, if our leadership announced a policy of "no boots on the ground", in the face of the Nazi Existential Threat?? But OUR leadership has foolishly considered ISIS the "Junior Varsity" [JV's], and all the while, ISIS has rolled over middle east territory, and established a territorial "Caliphate", as enabled by the Barak Hussein Obama, lead from behind policy of transforming the USA into a country of leftist, weak-kneed idiots, who will enable an Islamo-terrorist country to develop NUCLEAR capability against the free world.

Which will it be?---An ISIS Caliphate, who, like the Nazis, murder innocent civilians, not of their muslim faith---or an Iranian Caliphate, sworn to rule the world, by the threat of nuclear power?

WE HAVE PRECIOUS LITTLE TIME TO BEHAVE RATIONALLY, IN THE FACE OF THESE THREATS.
THE CHOICE OF THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE USA IS CRITICAL TO OUR SURVIVAL AS A WORLD LEADER, AND AN EXPONENT OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY.
PRAY TO THE ALMIGHTY THAT WE GET IT RIGHT------THIS TIME.

preferably, for the health of this country, as a result of a bill of impeachment passed by the House of Reps, and walked over to the Senate for trial. Once removed from office, as a result of the Senate's finding of his having committed "High Crimes and Misdemeanors", and other violations of Law, he could be subject to trial if indicted by a Federal Grand Jury, for having violated federal statutes.
I do not believe this to be double jeopardy, since the penalty for impeachment is removal from office, but the penalties for violation of Federal Law relates to possible fines and incarceration.

Georgie Patton is probably turning over in his grave, after what we have done to our military establishment on Obama's watch.

potus

If he was white, or any other race for that matter. he would have been impeached and removed from office years ago, very few in congress have the balls to do their job.

I disagree.
This subject has nothing to do with "having "balls", OR committing "political suicide". What it, in reality, has to do with is--are House Reps (or for that matter Senators) going to breach THEIR oaths of office [as the POTUS has done], and place the existence of their sovereign home country in extreme jeopardy, by suffering or permitting a continued attack on and erosion of, the U. S. Constitution.

IF it is not about fidelity to their oaths of office, then the Congress of the USA has sealed the fate of the Constitution as a fanciful, but useless document, which no longer is the bedrock of the LAW of the land. If that is true, then this country will disintegrate into 50 or more individual "countries", or amalgamations of states, each of which will be forced to cast about, and find new relationships among/between them, AND THE REST OF THE WORLD.[Precisely what our enemies are trying to achieve]

I quote the Oath of Office[capitalization for emphasis]

"I do solemnly SWEAR that I will SUPPORT and DEFEND the Constitution of the United States against ALL ENEMIES foreign AND DOMESTIC; that I will bear TRUE FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE to the same; that I will take this OBLIGATION freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, AND that I will WELL and FAITHFULLY Discharge the DUTIES of the office on which I am about to enter. SO HELP ME GOD.

I took that oath when I became a commissioned officer in the US Army Reserve. That oath had no suspense date, and I believe it is incumbent upon me to meet its requirements, till the day I die.
If congressional Reps and Senators do not feel the same when they are in-office,--IMO, HONOR is dead, and we are all screwed.

and hopefully....

he will end up in the same condition as good old Benito.

I do not understand the segue from my observations to yours, above. It sounds like you believe any one of the Republican candidates is guaranteed to have the capability to fix the damage, but Hillary will drive this country into Obama style disintegration.
My gut feel is an attempted military takeover of the country will certainly precipitate Civil War II.

I am amazed that our stalwart (psychotic?) Vice President uncle Joe B. has not announced his intent to run for office.

Regretfully

I am certain the recent death of his son, has traumatized the Veep, but he will recover and be as vocal as ever, even though his pronouncements are difficult to understand. IMO he is not psychotic, but prematurely entering senility, and that makes the Secret Service agents' job of guarding the POTUS, all the more important.

I agree with your analytical posting above, especially regarding Hillary.
