    This may be SOP, but not a good sign of the times. What are they afraid of? Oathkeepers?

    ...good enough to fight and die for our country but can not be trusted armed around those who issue orders...?

    and im gonna suppose the policy maker had armed personal guards to protect him from the unarmed troops also

    Patton was a great man...and because of that im sure he will soon be PC'ed out of new print history books

    -------------------
    Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
    to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them

    I recall my time in the service and very rarely was I "given the choice".
    Tim, go back and re-read what he wrote.

    We have too darn many people coming onto this board from time to time to encourage disobedience within the ranks.
    That is a very very very dangerous game some are playing with our democracy.

    It makes good big talk, but it is inimical to our system of law and order.

    Could be, and with good reason. Those folks should be rounded up as the criminals they are.
    We've covered this here many times. You take one oath. There is no room for secondary
    oaths. Those who encourage oaths that military orders should be disobeyed are encouraging
    violation of the anti-sedition section of the USCMJ.

    There is nothing patriotic about that. In fact, it stinks to high heaven.

    Be honest here folks. This is about delegitimizing elected civilian authority. It can't go
    well for this country if it isn't rooted out as the treachery it really is.

    I wonder when BHO will have his Secret Service disarmed? Can never be too careful, don't ya' know!;banghead:
    Yeah, I always figured when BHO catches one, it came from a SS agent.
