    Lt. Colonel Oliver North told Sean Hannity today that among the serviceman he speaks with each day, morale is high, and they're only worry is if Kerry becomes president. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    He also said re-enlistment is very high in the Marine Corps.

    Could you imagine? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif You would see people leaving the military like rats leaving a sinking ship /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif [whipering]The Horror......The Horror[/whispering] (Colonel Kurtz-Apocalypse Now)

    Well...the last time a Dem took office, the military was downsized...bases, ships, personnel - everything.

    Nah, wouldn't happen today. FAR too many higher-ups concerned only with their next promotion to allow that much dissent in the ranks.

    Yeah that was great. I only caught the beginning, but Ollie sure had that liberal steppin and fetchin when he couldn't answer questions from Hannity because he knew the only correct answer would bash his boy Kerry /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.

    The UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice) says you could be executed for even trying to organize such a thing.

    I know you guys are just joking /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif, but it is a very serious matter.

    I'm sure, but if Kerry gave a command, I'm sure it would be an instantaneous and total rebellion

    Also, we in the miliarty do not have the same rights as a civilian. We cannot assemble and protest (with some limitaions). We cannot actively work on a campaign for election. We can be contributing members to most organizations but can't necessarily attend thier meetings and rallys. And we can't openly speak ill of our Cammander-in-Chief. When Clinton won his second term someone uttered a few choice words of disapproval in our breakroom at work and he was reprimanded. You might as well be telling your boss to f*-off. A lot of this falls under a tile in the UCMJ as Conduct Prejudical to Good Order and Disipline or Conduct Unbecoming of an Officer, NCO, etc...

    I'm pretty sure once a solider pointed a weapon at John Kerry and pulled the trigger, the UCMJ would completely go out the window.

    That is because we are actually doing what we joined for, spreading a little red so the grass will grow in the desert.

    What makes the grass grow? BLOOD, BLOOD, BLOOD!!!!!!
