You can tell the Liberals on this thread who have never been in the American military.
The more dangerous the mission is, the more guys that volunteer and literally demand to go. That's how it is with American fighting men, particularly when other guys are in danger.
The posts on this thread clearly illustrate why Liberals should NEVER be in charge of anything related to the military. They will NEVER understand. They simply do not have the heart.

Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
Actualy the last time there were three carriers in the Middle East (5th Fleet AOR and 6th Fleet AOR) was during the Bush administration. Obama has a problem of having a carrier in just one of the Navy's five AOR's.
Right now there's a CSG in the 5th, 6th and 7th Fleet's AOR. For the first time since 2001 we only have one CSG on station in the 5th Fleet AOR. Since 2001 we always had at least two CSG's in AOR 5. That second carrier assigned to AOR was diverted to the 7th Fleet AOR because the carrier normally assigned to the 7th fleet is incapable to put to sea because of Obama diverting funding from operating and maintaining carriers to social engineering programs. Spending $500 Billion dollars to remove urinals from warships because of political correctness !!!
The Mediterranean Sea falls under the 6th Fleet AOR. Since Obama has been President very rarely did Obama have a CSG in the 6th Fleet AOR. Those carriers were usually found tied to their wharfs in Norfolk unable to put to sea. That's why there was no carriers in the Mediterranean to respond to the Al Qaeda attacks in Benghazi. Who's fault is that, the chain of command says the Cn'C (POTUS) then next in line the Secretary of Defense.
I'm still waiting for some one to answer how did the military brass know help wouldn't arrive in time? how in the hell they knew when the attack was going to end? how many more people needed to die before they decided to send help? what was the acceptable numbers of death before help was sent?
Anyone wondering what I'm talking about start here:

Clearly the former SEALS on the ground in Benghazi couldn't have given them a reliable sitrep
