    Every military organization thrives on cohesion built partly on the idea that they don't leave guys behind on the battlefield. These four men mattered at least mattered to their families. The way they died should be remembered as if they mattered. They were left behind in an effort to maintain the administration's policy image. Their dead bodies were still warm as the President boarded his 747 bling surfer to Los Vegas. They are saying "but it would have taken hours for special forces to come to the rescue" as if they knew how long it would be before the second lethal attack. If an officer on the battlefield refused to sent help to pinned down guys, he would be court martialled for incompetence and remembered for his physical cowardice. Cowardice very well headline President Obama's legacy. His shame will reach out across all uniformed men and women.

    "Northern Korea is doing just what China does. They're working together to freeze out Obama, and very soon the southern part of Korea will do the same. No part of Korea can afford to get involved with Obama, especially with what is happening in the Middle East. There were only three sides we saw fifty years ago East of Europe. Near East Middle East an the Far East, then we were back with the USA. Europe is going to survive, and if you keep going east eventually so will the rest, but the USA?? I still have to wonder.."
