Because We Say So, Mr. Obama

Mr. Obama:

Today is the 238th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps, sir.  I have a couple of questions for you. 

Tarawa.  Peleliu. Fallujah. Khe Sanh. Inchon. Belleau Wood...

Ever heard of those places, Mr. Obama?

Ever heard of Iwo Jima? Ever heard the names Michael Strank, Rene Gagnon, Ira Hayes, Franklin Sousley, John Bradley or Harlon Block?  Have any idea what they did?  Did you know one of them was a Navy Corpsman? (or Corpse man, as you put it).

Do you have any idea what happened in Tripoli in 1805?

Have you ever heard of Cpl John F. Mackie? 1st Lt. Baldomero Lopez?

How about Gen Lewis B. Puller?

Have any idea what Semper Fidelis means?

This is not a history lesson, Mr. Obama.  This list does not begin to scratch the surface.  Lots of people are unfamiliar with these names and places, but then lots of people aren't the Commander In Chief of this country's military.

Do you have an inkling of what it means to take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and to know without question that you will make it good right up to and including the last day of your life?

I know you think it's all about you, Mr. Obama, but it's not. Your narcissism and your ignorance and your contempt for America are at the root of the harm you're causing, but they are also the things that will ultimately lead to your failure.

The games you're playing will fail Mr. Obama, because you have no real grasp of, and no respect for, the country you're dealing with.

Your attempts to destroy this country will fail because we say so.
