Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell Reports: How Liberals Think in War



July 03, 2007 | By Jack Yoest


The only time a manager should shout or bark out an order demanding instant obedience is if the building is on fire: an emergency. Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell had a few minutes to make a decision and decided to take a vote. It wasn't an emergency, just yet.
"It was the stupidest, most southern-fried, lamebrained decision I ever made in my life," Luttrell writes. "I must have been out of my mind. I had actually cast a vote which I knew could sign our death warrant. I'd turned into a (expletive) liberal, a half-assed, no-logic nitwit, all heart, no brain, and the judgment of a jack rabbit.​
Marcus Luttrell tells his story in Lone Survivor and is reported in A war hero from Huntsville rues a decision made in Afghanistan, By FRITZ LANHAM in the Houston Chronicle,
In June 2005, on a barren mountain high in the Taliban-infested Hindu Kush, Luttrell and three fellow Navy SEALs came together to talk. Their mission — to locate and possibly take out an important Taliban leader hiding in the Afghan village below — had just been compromised.​

Three goatherds, one a boy of about 14, had blundered onto their position.​

Military discipline is the prompt obediance to orders or the initiation of appropiate action in the absence of orders. In the absence of clear rules of engagement, Marcus Luttrell was on his own. Which is what military officers and civilian managers expect -- to make decisions on minimal information.
As they saw it, they had two options: kill the Afghans, or let them go and hope for the best. They let them go. It's a decision Luttrell bitterly regrets.​

Marcus Luttrell made the decision balancing a possible murder charge -- which would have been demanded by the main stream media -- with the American lives for which he was responsible.
Within hours, more than 100 Taliban fighters descended on the SEAL team. In the terrible gun battle that followed, Murphy, Axelson and Dietz died. A few miles away, a Taliban grenade brought down a rescue helicopter on its way to help the trapped men, killing all 16 aboard. It was the worst day in the 40-year history of the Navy SEALs.​
Marcus Luttrell made the wrong decision. He was thinking like a liberal instead of a military officer.
He reports that Axelson favored killing the goatherds. Dietz was neutral. Murphy and Luttrell voted to let them go.​
In war every death of a military service member is a public event. Liberal influence has made difficult decisions nearly impossible to get right. Liberals have put our military in a no-win situation.
Losing is what liberals want.

And now these same self-loathing liberals do not want a memorial of Navy Seal Dietz with his automatic weapon.
Too violent.

Happy 4th of July.

I remember that day. When I heard that that many SEALs had died I was in disbelief. Rest in Peace warriors.

I wrote to Patsy Dietz a few month ago when I've head about "Spartan01".
It wasw nothin just a simple poem I've found on the net, but I was really amased because she took her precious time to write me back !
Now I'm pulling all available strings I've got to get my hands on a caopy of "Lone Survivor". I figure everyone owes that much to the fallen SEALs and Night Stalkers - the silent heros of, what some folks say (or would like it to be), a forgotten war.

Check with Amazon.com. If they will not ship to you overseas then send it to someone in the US and have them forward it to you.

With that I do have to say that I have a copy of the book and it is perhaps the worst thing I have ever read. Poorly written and edited it reads like Luttrell makes himself out to be some great ninja warrior and basically steals a lot of the thunder due to the other members of the teams. At least that is my take on his book. Sadly everything else I have read about all the other teammates that died during that mission says they were nothing short of true warriors and heroes. It is a shame that we lost so many great men.

A great example of how some people just don`t get it. Soldiers are in Iraq and Afganistan trying to make democracy an option ( for all the liberals, democracy is the thing, what makes all the shit you speak and do possible ) and trying to keep peace. Standing with the signs like "war is not the answer" or "It is not our war". Well you punks, It will become an answer and an option for you, when you lose somebody to a carbomb etc.

So for all the troops,from US to Europe who are performing this task, I hope you know that there are people who appreciate the work you do, and can`t be grateful enough for the ultimate sacrifice you are ready to give, a human life.

Like George Orwell said ;

" We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm".
