How many times can I say it? Why anyone would willingly choose to serve in today’s military is a total mystery to me.
Now this editorial from Fox News makes an important observation:
By now most American have heard about the VA’s infamous patient “secret wait lists” which reportedly contributed to the deaths of up to 40 veterans in the Phoenix area alone. Those patriots were American heroes who served our country proudly. Yet they were left to die waiting to see a doctor.
Here’s another secret the White House doesn’t want you to know about the VA. Al Qaeda detainees get better medical treatment than our veterans.
Yes, it’s true. I know because I served as a Pentagon spokesman from 2005-2009 and visited Guantanamo Bay Naval Base over 30 times during those years.
Despite the fact that Al Qaeda terrorists carried out the Sept. 11 terror attacks, killing 3,000 people in America, the admitted co-conspirators and their roughly 150 fellow jihadists at Gitmo have approximately 100 doctors, nurses and health care personnel assigned to them.
Doctors and medical personnel are at their beck and call. Got a cold, a fever, a toothache, a tumor, chest or back pain, mental health issues, PTSD? No problem, come right on in. Military doctors are waiting to see you.
Political Correctness, social engineering, insane and suicidal rules of engagement, prosecution of fighters for defending themselves on the battlefield, a refusal to honestly deal with the threat of “workplace violence” (otherwise known as traitorous terrorists in the ranks) and the knowledge that this Commander-in-Chief will leave you to die, if it improves his political aspirations, rather than approve a rescue… Today’s military is an ethically-challenged, high-tech cruel joke.
Yes, there are (for some reason) still many honorable citizens who serve… but it baffles me why. And then we add this whole VA fiasco. Yeah, I really think government should run health care; it’s obvious they’re good at it—say the people who support population-control.
