    I agree with this crap, we need to be real army guys and not wussy army guys while on post. Jeez.

    You have guys fully trained in forearms and the damn government leaves them standing there helpless while they are mowed down. Disgraceful.

    If one of our posts was attacked by terrorists our soldiers would be standing there helpless. How stupid is that?

    This is why we need a president who has at least spent a couple of years in the military. Obama is pathetic.

    It pisses me off every time I see Obama salute. Then he gets on his girl’s bicycle and rides off. What a pantywaist.

    Disarming our soldiers – the whole world is laughing at us.
