    The only enemies Americans have resides in Washington,D.C.

    • Chester

      Keep wishing, John. One of these days someone NOT of our government will come knocking on your door and invite you to a beheading, yours.

      • Deerinwater

        Right ! we have many enemies, internal and external

      • Merle Dickey

        And our current administration woud care? Isn’t the whole rhetoric to kill off as many of us as possible .

      • John

        Great response Chester, I really liked it-But if the cabal in Washington is going to depopulate the U.S. we might as well have fun on the way.

    “…threats both real and existential require action to keep Americans safe, U.S. News & World Report said.” Really? Another political pawn who has no idea what being in COMBATmeans. Mind ‘our’ own business Chuck!

    • jimzimmerman

      sorry disqus. I agree with most of what you said but chuck Hagel DOES know what being in combat means. He did a tour as a grunt in Vietnam. How much combat have you seen. not on TV?

      • disqus_mo8ewPYVck

        Yep, I’ve seen it on TV and read about combat in a lot of books. Seriously, I seem to be quite successful in finding the heat over the last 35+ or so years and am still involved, but wstarting to feel my age. I may be a lot of things, but two things I will never do is apologize for my defense of liberty or change my religious beliefs to satisfy others.

  • guy r west

    right now warshington is not the only enemies America has youde better include the muslum brotherhood and others of their elk they hate not just Americans but christens and have a sworn intent of not only destroying us but killing us so think you should rethink that statement just a bit but ill aslso agree many in warshingto are not our friends and I do mean those who swore and oath to protect our constitution and the country . who it seems are not doing their jobs and some who have admitted hateing those who disagree with them . a sorry set of afairs and those need to go Not be voted back in

    Isolationism is becoming more then just rhetoric, it is becoming a reality. With Obama and his administration at the helm, we are rapidly becoming a nation that nobody in the world trusts. Hagel is a toad, and toads only spout the administrations rhetoric.

  • vietnamvet1971

    Hagel & McCain two traitors.

    • Deerinwater

      traitors perhaps , but to what?

    • Merle Dickey

      I think the biggest traitor we have is the one in the white house and the one who tells him what to do , behind our backs.

  • KingKen

    Sounds like rhetoric to me. They must be preparing to commence to begin another conflict somewhere in the world. “Oh damn…just when we were redefining our role in the world.” “And now this-!!” Hagel is another one of BOs JOs. Today America’s military is nothing but a warmongering tool of the Zionist Mafia. If you are a Christian GET OUT OF THE MILITARY-!!!

    I made a few bets that Hagel would become a parrot for Obama, better known
    as “Robbing Hood & His Merry (gay) Band of Thieves” !

    My real fear is when we impeach this reckless traitor that dishonors the name of president, is if we will have enough jail space to put all of the trash he brought in with him or not, because that is where they belong, and i have a hunch some of them may already know their way around a jail house.

    The plan has been from the beginning to take our military powers away from
    us, and make us vulnerable to our enemies that is being done openly by the enemy in the “Out House” as it has been renamed since the present gang has taken up squatters rights, but it may be several months before an honorable president and his family can move in because of all of clean up and renovation and fumagation that will have to be done.

    Do you suppose there is any truth to the rumors that some of his friends under the guidance of Al Sharoton & Jessie Jackson have opened up a franchise for open pit BB-Q grille and a Popeye’s Chicken franchise in one part of kitchen with malt liquor on tap??
