Obama’s Answer to Terrorism Against Our Troops: Have Them Remove Their Uniforms

On the heels of a terrorist attack on two military recruiting offices in Tennessee by a Muslim immigrant, the Obama administration announced a policy change to help prevent future attacks. Was it to finally arm our soldiers? Nope. It was to have them take off their uniforms. No really!

According to the Military Times, Obama’s weak-kneed Defense Secretary Ash Cater approved the decree that recruiters should take off their uniforms while performing their recruitment duties from now on.

So, now recruiters will be wearing…. what, shots and a t-shirt? Or better yet, maybe a burkah or maybe some turban-styled head covering. All in order to cringe in front of Islamic terrorists while pleading, “oh, please, please, Mr. terrorist, don’t kill us.”

Note that Carter didn’t demand that all recruiters be frikking armed so that they might be able to shoot back when Muslims attack.

No, now soldiers are supposed to die at their desks and now don’t even have the benefit of dying in the uniform of their country!

And let’s not even mention that recruiting without a uniform proudly worn by a recruiter puts a serious dent in the whole emotional appeal of recruiting and will make the recruiter’s job harder.

One of the whole aspects of being recruited is that potential recruits have a visceral reaction to the crisp, flashy uniform worn by their guide to the service. It’s part of the whole package to be able to show recruits how handsome, or how sharp and orderly they will look in their own uniforms when they get one.

And now Obama wants to take that away from the services?

Well, it shouldn’t be a surprise. Obama is not proud of our military. In fact, he’d love to see it dwindle to nothing. This just fits with his desire to undermine our armed forces.

Meanwhile, it is taking the actions of some Republican governors to come to the aid of our soldiers even if the Obama administration refuse to do so. Governors Greg Abbott, Asa Hutchinson, Rick Scott, Bobby Jindal, Mary Fallin, and Mike Pence have all issued orders to one extent or another that National Guard recruiting officers shall have arms at the ready if need be.

    The Commander in Chief is a traitor and an America hater. He still has about 18 months to exact as much damage as he possibly can before we are finally rid of him in the Oval Office. Unfortunately for the world and the USA he will refuse to go away. He will be Jimmy Carter on steroids as for badmouthing everything American and will still be a terrorist loving idiot.

      “He will be Jimmy Carter on steroids ”
      There arent that many steroids in the world for Carter to take to be as bad as Obama.

    Yeah, because no one will ever suspect that the people in street clothes in the Marine Recruiting Office are either Marines or are trying to become Marines. That will really confuse the terrorists and save a lot of lives.

    The only thing you can be sure of with this admin is that they hate America, they are ashamed of our nation’s symbols, they want us to lose and our servicemen to die at the hands of our enemies.

  • Hank_M

    I’ll admit, this one left me speechless.
    What’s next? A Court martial for being out of uniform?

    • Brett Buck

      A court martial for being IN uniform, presumably.

  • iwogisdead

    On the plus side, at least obumble hasn’t required recruiters to wear targets on their backs. Yet.

  • Vagabond661

    Yeah Muslims never kill anyone in street clothes. OMG THESE PEOPLE ARE IN CHARGE!!!!

  • LiberalNightmare

    Battles are won by the Marines.
    Wars are lost by the pussies that lead them.

    I have to join the amen chorus with Warner here. This is pusillanimous. The cool uniforms are a major attractor of recruits to the “brand” of the USMC and other services.

    It’s also an overreaction, given that more and more evidence comes out that this guy was just another drug-addled lunatic loser with Muslim flavoring.

  • A Modest Counter-Proposal.

    All NCO’s of the Armed Forces serving in combat arms or who have previously qualified and served in combat arms shall go armed at all times, to include concealed carry when not in uniform / not on duty.

    All Senior NCO’s, Warrant Officers, and Comissioned Officers of all combat arms or who have previously qualified and served in the combat shall likewise go armed at all times.

    • Commander_Chico

      Yeah, no privates. Career guys.
