“Somebody got itchy, that’s all I’ve got to say.”

Yeah…… and an Afghan citizen “somehow caught fire” in an ‘interesting’ situation too.

.

I’m about to get ‘edgy’ in commentary. If the powers that be here at Unified Patriots aren’t into ‘edgy’, than y’all can delete this. I make no apologies for my opinions or words, because it’s coming…… You know…… “It”.

NY Times…… (Thanks to Jim Hoft).

“In a sign of the nervousness surrounding Mr. Panetta’s trip, the Marines and other troops who were waiting in a tent for the defense secretary to speak were abruptly asked by their commander to get up, place their weapons — M-16 and M-4 automatic rifles and 9-mm pistols — outside the tent and then return unarmed. The commander, Sgt. Maj. Brandon Hall, told reporters he was acting on orders from superiors.

“All I know is, I was told to get the weapons out,” he said. Asked why, he replied, “Somebody got itchy, that’s all I’ve got to say. Somebody got itchy; we just adjust.”

Normally, American forces in Afghanistan keep their weapons with them when the defense secretary visits and speaks to them. The Afghans in the tent waiting for Mr. Panetta were not armed to begin with, as is typical.”

But wait, there’s more……

Something I found quite by accident buried deep in The Associated Press website.

Rather interesting too.

.

Kabul, Afghanistan (AP) — An Afghan driver somehow caught fire Wednesday when he crashed a stolen truck as U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta’s plane was landing nearby, officials said.

No one in Panetta’s party was hurt, said a Pentagon spokesman, Navy Capt. John Kirby.

In the bizarre incident, the pickup truck traveled at high speed and crashed into a ditch near the ramp where Panetta’s plane was going to park at the British airfield in Helmand province in southern Afghanistan.

Suddenly the driver caught on fire, but the truck did not explode , said Col. Gary Kolb, a U.S. military spokesman in Afghanistan, countering earlier reports that the vehicle burst into flames. The driver was treated for burns.

There was no indication that the driver knew that Panetta was in the plane. There were no explosives found either in the vehicle or on the driver, Kolb said. Panetta was told about the incident after he got off the aircraft.

.

I shall now offer commentary with snarkification of an order that could…… well…… it could.

.

Wow, what a coincidence, eh ?

The current makeup of the US government ordering a disarming of US troops in hostile territory so the number two civilian military underboss could grace them with his presence…… that going on at the same moment an Afghan driver ‘caught on fire’ on the tarmac as said dignitary’s aircraft was arriving.

What’s the odds of that happening ?

There’s no way possible that anyone outside of some sort of inner-circle of the administration and high military command could have possibly known in advance that whatshisname was arriving in Kabul at a designated date and time – No way possible. I mean, it’s not like there’s anyone – not a single person in Afghanistan – who would want to do anything against one of the highest-ranking officials in The Great Satan’s government.

Definitely couldn’t be one of those “peace-loving” Arab terrorists either…yes, that’s an oxymoron. So the description of the ‘Afghan driver caught on fire’ has got to be wrong. Must have been a typical bitter clinger behind the wheel.

.

Imagine who they’ll order disarmed next time some sort of political office-holder of any level visits anywhere…… Anywhere.

The Few. The Proud. The ……..Disarmed.

This is one of the most overlooked stories of the week by the MFM (I know…I know…it’s just a coincidence).

Thanks to the disdain the radical Leftists now running our Excutive Branch have for our military, we have become a more sensitive, more PC fighting force. We have now equated a bunch of corrupt, terrorist-infiltrated, rag-tag Afghani soldiers with the unequaled moral rightness of our Marines. All in the name of not wanting to ‘offend’ our ‘allies.’

How shameful!

And it will have disasterous results…sooner more likely than later.

Military tradition traces the “Pass in Review” to one of the British Kings, Bonnie Prince Charles maybe, its been a few years since I marched in one so I’m not positive. Anyway, he is said to have wanted to look into the eyes of his Soldiers, so he could know if they were truly with him and his cause. He didn’t disarm his men before he looked into their eyes. King Henry, while delivering his Crispin’s Day speech didn’t have his rag-tag and sorely outnumbered army disarmed so that he could tell them… We few, we happy few, we band… Read more »
