I am very shocked and disappointed. I am sick of the media. And I am sick of those who blindly follow, news media,(both parties) You almost had a crisis of unimaginable proportions. Hillary is evil. Nasty to the military and I know this for a fact. You see, I was at Ramstein, AFB from 1981-1984. The ColdWar! And guess what? I was a SSgt there, a weather forecaster with Det. 2, 31st Weather Squadron. Before that stationed at LRAFB, where she was cruel, to we in the military. 74-81. For us that served and spat upon. That was not an allegation…
We were part of NATO. You could hear sorties being thrust through the air. We had F-4s with the 86th Tactical Fighter Wing. The 512th and 526th Squadrons. We routinely had Chemical Weapons Drills. There was, a very real chance of armageddon. Of course NATO and the United States Armed Forces in Europe (USAFE) are not blameless and were part of the problem, as was the Soviet Union and their coalition of dictators, who has fall-out destroying a whole city! And worse, the sides effects of radiation illnesses.
The very first day at Ramstein, the Bader-Meinhof gang blew up a portion of the NATO HQ there. I was told Ramstein was on lock down! Then General Dozier was nearly killed as a bomb exploded, on a railroad track as his staff car was armor-plated was crossing!
But a flaccid Defense is not an option. The tiger has escaped and the Giant Asian Hornet is beginning to migrate to Europe. The Asian hornet is the 747 of stinging venom. And the hornet is not a metaphor. Thirty of those monsters can kill an entire nest of honey bees Roughly 30,000 honey bees!! And can kill you in 15 minutes. Like the Tiger and the hornets, we have our hands full.
My point is, if we do not brace ourselves, our borders and our Allies, spoiled baby-man of Korea Kim Jil Yung will send us a batch of radiation and that is just North Korea! Iran is now armed to the teeth. Thanks Obama!!!
I was stationed at this base, when we had (United States) 30,000 Nukes and making it worse, Russian had 50,000! Our aircraft were buzzed by East German MIGS! We had T-37 pilots cussing out the enemy! The A-10s were stationed a few miles down the road.
Both nations should be ashamed! The sheer numbers of warheads, is one reason that the proliferation is spreading around the entire world so fast.
It is NOT about fariness. In fact, fairness is a dangerous concept, when this fairness is a snare. When snarky reporters do more harm than good. When politics is the end-game. When German Mayors downplay rapes and sexual harrasment to young girls. When these same politicians tell native Germans to find a new path to their schools.
When illegal aliens get preferential to citizenship, while Asians and others have to undergo all sorts of scrutiny. I saw one Syrian refugee ( a woman), who was appreciative of the host nation. She has inclination to hurt anyone. I would give my own life, for an innocent such as her.
Those minions who hurt defenseless people, I would not. My parents taught to respect all people. I will not let them point a gun at me. I can sho0t a rifle, if need be.
I want us all (The World) to start fixing housing, the homeless and those needing medical care. We need to start to occupying abandoned housing by cleaning those bases.
We need teeter todders over chemicals. We need hope for a mental dichotomy and compassion for those who were let out to find a home under an underpass.
I have had two friends die, one from ALS, the other, a rare form of Leukemia. Is that right, when some of this is caused by radiation and chemicals! I wish they were here today. SMSgt Floyd Parton had the ALS. Lucky for me, I could talk to him before he died. A deep sadness of mine, who was gentle, kind and compassionate. Bless you with tears in my eyes, even as I type here.
We MUST start acting like adults. We need to ban crude clitoral cutting in Africa which is in any case, misogyny. We need to protect women from rape and the incidental reliving of rapes and ALL FORMS OF ABUSE.
So much to do, kisses not rapes, more prosecution of miscreants who don ski caps and women who don the stigma of abuse. Reeling and will continue to do so. Ma`ny suffering mental abuse afterwards, and not saying that they made a MISTAKE!!!
Let’s be sure we are the helping hand. Not to terrorists, but those who want together rebuild new bridges, Metaphorically-speaking and literally too! Please!
