Our hearts and our souls are bleeding, but they are not bleeding enough. How can we tell?
Benghazi. A whole nation witnessed over the television the massacre against four of their compatriots committed by savages, while the President and his people were watching or part-time watching -and no one did anything to stop it.
The following days and over a year have gone by and no uproar yet. No one has hit the streets to demand justice for the crimes committed.
When Benghazi witnesses were forced to sign sworn affidavits silencing them, probably forever, still no uproar.
Same did not happen, when the 23 Seal Team Six members were massacred in Peshawar, Afghanistan, most likely in retaliation for the capture and reported death of Osama Bin Laden. When all details are taken in consideration, the only conclusion possible is that the American Administration must have provided the information to the Taliban, the perpetrators of that massacre.
When a Muslim doctor and major, embedded in Fort Hood, massacred his innocent and unsuspecting military colleagues, the Administration purposefully called it and continues calling it workplace violence. As such, the major, Muslim terrorist Nidal Malik Hasan, continued receiving his salary as major of the U.S. military army for over a year, over $200,000 -while, unjustly, the survivors and families of the victims could not receive the Purple Heart only given to combat wounded personnel, which would have allowed them to obtain their government entitlements.
Again, silence from Americans.
As of last week, American veterans, are under attack, as if they had not had enough enemy attack at the fronts from which they have placed their bodies to shield us from danger.
This time, the treacherous attack comes from their own Commander-in-Chief and his Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel -although another Obama buddy, NY Senator Chuck Schumer, had already announced that it was “time for veterans to make some sacrifices for the nation in time of need.” Really.
As Ret. Major, Montgomery J. Granger writes in The Blaze: “A little here, a little there; capping cost of living increases for military; eliminating this benefit for years for retirees; reducing pension growth for disabled retirees and survivors; preventing Reservists from collecting retirement pay for decades; and reducing retiree benefits by 20 percent. It all adds up to more than $6 billion in “savings” over 10 years.”
What do the people have to say? You guessed it. Nothing.
Meanwhile, almost 19,000 captains and majors will be screened by separation and early retirement boards this spring as part of the ongoing drawdown of the active-duty Army. In their own words:
“Almost 19,000 captains and majors will be screened by separation and early retirement boards this spring as part of the ongoing drawdown of the active-duty Army.
The Officer Separation Board and Enhanced Selective Early Retirement Board could select up to 20 percent of the considered population for separation from the Army — that’s about 3,800 people. However, not everyone in the group will have enough time in service to qualify for a 15-year retirement.
Officers subject to these boards are Army Competitive Category captains in year groups 2006 to 2008 and majors in year groups 1999 to 2003. Eligible officers must have at least one year active-duty time in grade and not be on a promotion list to the next rank.
“The Army’s drawdown plan is a balanced approach while maintaining readiness and reducing turbulence to the officer corps,” said David Martino, director of the Officer Personnel Management Directorate at Human Resources Command. “We know the Officer Separation Board and Enhanced Selective Early Retirement Board will separate fully qualified officers who have rendered quality service to the nation. We’ll execute [the boards] with precision, care and compassion.”
All of that is part of the Obama razzia against America and its military.
And, Americans are still silent.
Comfort and materialistic life have torn Americans hearts away from realities that have been difficult to grab but that are no longer few or far in between.
America’s new life is plagued with suffering.
By all estimates, over a hundred million Americans are unemployed, without job, just-lost-their-job, just-tired-of-looking-for-a-job, and all other terminology that may have been invented to keep official numbers down. Just as poverty levels are basically nowhere to be seen.
Families are disintegrating under the ruthless attack under the rising number of family members declaring themselves part of the LGBT community.
Religion, the victim par excellence of godless enemies of humanity, is fully under attack by the Obama regime.
Precisely, the military have been forbidden, during the last Christmas festivities, to receive expressions typical of their celebrations, including God Bless You.
Throngs of mercenary immigrants are practically waiting at the borders for the signal by their benefactors to storm in and initiate another, different kind of usurpation of our places, of our traditions, of our dreams.
As readers know, all the above is only the tip of the tip of the iceberg.
The really important question is: Must the demolition bulldozer flatten the country completely, before Americans finally say enough already and proceed to do what needs to be done?
Until then, a deafening silence as heavy as a mantra of darkness is smothering the country.
