(Tomb of the Unknown Soldier)
On Memorial Day it is customary to thank our troops for all the sacrifices they and their families have given for this country. However, President Obama doesn’t seem to see the troops as the heroes they are and his policies show it. Here are three of the worst disses Obama has made towards those who have given their lives for our freedom and the freedom of millions around the globe, in descending order:
3. One huge clue that Obama doesn’t care much for the troops is the way he cuts their paychecks. Obama has cut the troops’ pay increase as they were on active duty in Afghanistan. He also is now proposing cutting military retirement pay by as much as 20%.
2. When our troops caught bad guys rather than killing them on the battlefield the terrorists were round up and sent to facilities to house them and protect the rest of the world from them. Obama has released many of these prisoners but none as puzzling as the five major terrorist leaders released to appease the Taliban into releasing one America-hating deserter. One report even stated that Obama gave $5 billion along with the Taliban 5.
1. In spite of the sacrifice of thousands of troops who gave their lives in Iraq and the peace that finally came as a result, Obama pulled US troops from Iraq as he had promised. He later denied he had anything to do with pulling troops out of Iraq after he decided to place a small number of troops back in Iraq after the country had gone to ISIS hell. Not providing for peace for the Iraqi people after our soldiers had given their lives to build a democracy there was his biggest diss. Thousands of troops remained in Germany and Japan at the end of WWII. Their presence was to keep the peace. These two countries are now great allies and world powers. Pulling the troops from Iraq was probably the single biggest foreign policy blunder by a US President ever and his biggest slap in the face to all Americans and especially our troops.
