US Marines required to REMOVE the BOLTS from their M1 Rifles for Obama’s 2013 Inauguration Parade.
This isn’t the first time the Obama Cartel has shown open distrust and loathing for our military – and our Marines in particular. RRB reported last year that SecDEF Leon Panetta made Marines leave their weapons outside – in a war zone – when he spoke to them in Afghanistan.
In under 4 years, Obama has gone from using our troops as props for his political speeches – to openly distrusting them. What does this say about him, – and the fools who voted for him?
TWO things to understand:
ONE – these Marines are almost all combat veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan – and are HAND-PICKED for this unit. There are no ‘loose screws’ among them.
TWO – their rifles are WWII era M1 Garands – semi-automatic [not assault] .30 cal rifles – now used strictly for ceremonial purposes. They are incapable of penetrating the bullet-proof glass which surrounds Obama as he observes parades.
So removing the bolts does NOT keep Obama any safer – but it DOES INSULT the Marines who are marching to honor him.
In any military – at any time in history – the first elements essential to victory and security are leadership, respect, honor, and trust. These are far more important than numbers, weapons, or tactics.
Obama has just demonstrated his total lack of leadership, respect, honor or trust. He is in fact a cowardly vacuum – loathing both our country and our troops.
When Obama is eventually tried and convicted of TREASON, I hope these same Marines - serving with a level of honor that Obama can never even understand – are brought back to serve as his firing squad.
