I am so disgusted by this, I don’t know where to begin. My father served in the Navy and the Merchant Marines during World War II with pride. You did not surrender like this and capitulate to the enemy. He would be ashamed of what the Navy and the military have become under Obama. I know I am. It turns out the Navy commander in charge of the patrol boats captured by Iran, surrendered because he did not want to endanger Obama’s nuclear deal with the Islamists. Seriously? He thought Iran would not hurt the sailors and parade them around like prisoners of war (which they did and used as propaganda – they even did a float and a statue depicting them). The commander said he didn’t want to start a war… he wouldn’t have, we are already at war with them and have been for years. This is shameful and treasonous.
From Pamela Geller:
The Navy commander in charge of a pair of patrol boats captured by Iranian forces in January opted to surrender rather than fight back, citing later fears that a confrontation could endanger the Obama administration’s efforts to lock in a deal with Tehran on its nuclear program.
In an interview with investigators looking into the January incident, the commander said he surrendered the vessels after calculating that his sailors would not be in danger because Iran “wants this nuke deal to go through.”
The interview was one of several stunning revelations in the often scathing 170-page report compiled by Navy investigators, chronicling the chain of events that led to the apprehension and detention of the 10 American sailors by the Iranian military after a pair of U.S. patrol boats drifted into the country’s sovereign waters in the Persian Gulf….
Nine Navy officers have been fired for their involvement in the incident, in which the two Navy patrol boats, running late on their assigned mission, drifted into the costal waters near Farsi Island, home to an Iranian naval base.
The Navy officers fired included squadron chief Cmdr. Greg Meyer and Capt. Kyle Moses, head of Combined Task Force 56, the unit in charge of the boat crews.
This whole nuke deal is for show. It’s not about nuclear power, it’s about nuclear weapons and war. It’s about Islamic supremacy and the Caliphate. The only reason the Iranians did not kill those sailors is that they were more interested in humiliating America than killing them. Why should they go into a hot war with us when they have someone on the inside like Barack Obama doing their bidding and dirty work? Our warriors no longer fight to protect our country… they surrender to protect a political agenda. To quote Yeats: “Surely the Second Coming is at hand. Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle, And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?” Iran is that rough beast whose hour has come at last.
