    Hopefully,,, I doubt if that's changed with the Marines. If you advocate limiting what I can see and hear,,,I don't "feel" like fighting for you, since you're not willing to fight for me.

    Off to Work. Take care all.
    How melodramatic.

    You do not join the military to do what ever the **** you want. As many others on this thread have pointed out many times in some form or another loose lips sink ships. The military must have gotten a lot stricter since you were in for you to pitch a fit about the military controlling what their service members do. This has nothing to do with Obama trying to crush marines or Obama plotting some sort of secret military action,Banning military in general from social networking sites is just exercising common sense. Our enemies get the internet too,our enemies get newspapers and watch the news. They are not in a cave in the middle of nowhere cut off from the modern world.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

You sure you are a conservative and not a leftist liberal? Because if you've noticed....nobody here shares your extreme complaints.

    And besides this....your desires to make this about President Obama smacks of partisan bickering, which leads us to believe that the troops are really a secondary thought to your political bashing. Like I stated....this was occurring under President Bush as well.
    I read this thread from start to finish. You give an exemplary performance, as usual. There's not much more to say. This partisan hack is clearly trying to make it about Obama instead of examining the issue holistically.

    I'm NOT "pitching a fit". I'm pointing out the fact that our Service Personel are now being Censored on what they can see, and hear. No amount of twisting, turning, or blurring of that fact changes what just been ordered.

    You seem to think it's "OK" to limit the information our Military can receive. I don't.

    As my Name implies,,,I view the World as a Realist. This is Censorship. Whatever your reasons or feelings are,,,doesn't change the fact.

    Up your "Partisan" nose.

    I find it hard to believe you ever served in the military.

    Actually, it's the serviceman's job to do and die, if necessary. My job was to push a submarine around.

    Someone else steered.

    Period.

    That was what we had to do.

    If that meant getting us close enough to kill a soviet carrier and leaving us with zero chance of escape, that wasn't my concern.

    If a company of soldiers is ordered to hold a position at all costs, that means exactly what it says...the high command has written you off and you're being sacrificed for some hirer strategic goal. Your bad luck, follow the friggin' orders.

    Welcome to the military. It's about the objective, not you.
