U.S. Marines with Bravo Company, 2d Reconnaissance (2d Recon) Battalion, 2d Marine Division, and Dutch Marines with the Netherlands Marine Corps conduct night dives during Exercise Caribbean Coastal Warrior on Savaneta Kamp, Aruba, June 14-23, 2021. The dives consisted of integrated training with Dutch Frogmen to increase the ability to work in a low visibility environment.

This Covid-19 vac is gonna be harder than Anthrax was ...via Reddit...LtCol in the US Army has resigned because he refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine. He calls the order to be vaccinated "unlawful, unethical, immoral and tyrannical", and calls the Biden Administration a "Marxist takeover of the military and United States"

Note.  Trying to run this down and verify it but having no luck.  Take it with a grain of salt...if proven false this is still worthy of discussion.  We saw the same with the Anthrax vaccine but it was much less controversial.

Note 1. Do you remember the uproar over the Anthrax vaccine? This Covid-19 thing is gonna make that look like a picnic. 

The real problem? In my opinion you're seeing a pushback against the shot as a cover for anger over the administration's policies with regard to the military. 

We saw (I did) rumblings of discontent under the Obama Admin and its reaching a fever pitch under the Biden tenure. 

From my chair the Pentagon has a problem. It appears to have been politicized and has put its finger on the scale for a certain political party. 

That's no good. 

A non-political defense establishment is what we need. I've noticed that certain groups are trying to drag corporations and govt agencies into the culture war. That should be avoided when possible. Will they listen? I don't think so. Which means more trouble ahead.







I had a long rant about the "naming" of this day but I decided to take it down.

Suffice it to say that I have issues with the whole celebration of this thing and seriously wonder WTF is going on in the Pentagon, State Dept, Justice Dept and other agencies.

You do realize that in the crush to evacuate Afghans we've laid the groundwork for another attack.  No way they were all vetted. No way that terrorists didn't slip thru the cracks.

We'll see blowback on this entire episode (meaning the withdrawal) for years to come.  More attacks are coming.  Mark my words.
