U.S. Military 'Embarrassed' By Obama's 'Amateurism' On Syria (Video)

By Susan Duclos

From the military photobombs, kicked off by a Navy member holding a sign saying "I didn't join the Navy to fight for al-Qaeda in a Syrian civil war," to members of the other armed forces joining in with the same types of signs, it is clear the military does not want a war in Syria who has not attacked the U.S. Others then took it a step further declaring they "will NOT fight for al-Qaeda in Syria," prompting investigations into identifying these men to punish them for their outright revolt.

Now it is being reported that military leaders are sick and tired of Obama's "amateurism," in his handling of the Syria situation.

Via the Gawker, who reports on retired United States Army major general Robert H. Scales' assessment of the military and Pentagon's mindset:

Our military professionals are "embarrassed to be associated with the amateurism" of the current administration. They are "repelled by the hypocrisy of a media blitz" that frames the desire to protect Syrian civilians as a matter of actual military need. They are "outraged." They are "tired of wannabe solders." They "lament our loneliness." They "resent civilian policymakers who want the military to fight a war that neither they nor their loved ones will experience firsthand."

Scales' specific example of such a know-nothing amateur—the official who provoked Dempsey's alleged nonverbal disdain—is John Kerry, the Secretary of State, all "thundering voice and arm-waving" as he argued for war. That would be former Navy lieutenant John Kerry, who collected a Silver Star, a Bronze Star, and three Purple Hearts in Vietnam, the same (and only) war that Robert Scales fought in.

These men joined the armed services to protect and defend our nation as well as our constitution and there is talk that perhaps the best way for them to do so, is to oust Barack Obama in the name of protecting and defending our nation "against all enemies, foreign and domestic," as they swore to do when they took their oath of service.
