Would We Expect Any Less From The Head Jackass In The Senate?
Is it be asking too much to just let General Pace beat Harry Reid to death with his bare hands?
Helmet tip to my buddy, Jay over at Pro Ecclesia (who has the full story)

Head Defeatocrat, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid recently referred to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Peter Pace, USMC, as "incompetent". Here's the bottom line of what Reid said;

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid confirmed Thursday that he told liberal bloggers last week that he thinks outgoing Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Peter Pace is "incompetent."... Reid said he told Pace face-to-face recently that he had performed poorly as an adviser on the conduct of the Iraq war.

Could Reid be more of an idiot? Probably not. Besides the fact that the likes of a small man such as Harry Reid doesn't even rate to carry General Pace's jock strap, even a dullard of Reid's rather small caliber should realize that the various Joint Chiefs are NOT Operational Theater Commanders (CENTCOM, SOCOM, PACOM, EUCOM, etc). The job description of the JCS is essentially the following;

1. Beg Congress for more money.

2. Occasionally sign off on some new uniform reg.

3. Grovel to Congress for more money.

4. Attend cocktail parties.

5. Plead with Congress for more money.

6. Banging their heads against the wall for turning down an Operational Command for DC Duty instead.

7. Putting up with idiots like Harry Reid.

Basically, the Theater Commanders have operation control, and the JCS have administrative control. Hell, I'm just a beat-up old retired Master Sergeant of Marines, and even I know that.

So why does Reid take a swipe at Gen. Pace for the conduct of the war in Iraq? Is Reid really that stupid that he doesn't know that the Chairman of the JCS has absolutely no say-so on the conduct of any given Theater of Operation? On second thought... I'll bet even the likes of Harry Reid knows this. I think he said what he said just so he could take a cheap shot at General Pace.

Harry Reid, you're a very petty, small and pitiable wretch. And you really are lucky that the likes of Pete Pace hasn't handed you your ass. God knows he should.

You know why the dems wanted this guy out, he was a major hurdle standing in the way of allowing gays in the millitary. When Catholic Gen. Pace said that he had some moral objections due to his religious faith, the left wing essentially went out for blood. Reid is just feeding the left-wing smear machine.

Nope.

All of Nevada north of Las Vegas would thank him for it too. In fact, if he'd get the Marines to keep Las Vegas at bay, we'd do it for him.

FD,
I've thought the very same thing. How right you are.

Cate,
You want the Marines to invade Nevada? You may want to re-think this. 10,000 combat vet Marines on the loose in Vegas... with automatic weapons?

Hmmmm. You've got a point there Mr. Caveman. Why waste the Marines' time and talent on Reid supporters? They are deserving of more worthy adversaries.

Harry Reid and his liberal ilk hate anything that stands firmly for ethics, integrity, truth, morality, or God (the Source of all truth and morality!)

Hence they hate the U.S. military and particularly the Marines. It is why they hate the Catholic Church. It is why they want to dismantle the Boy Scouts.

Oh yeah, that's right, Gen. Pace is Numero Uno Marine and Catholic. Probably was a Boy Scout, too!

General Pace is a magnificent example of a true Roman ("Pro-God") Catholic while Harry Reid is a prime example of a "Liberal" who will "tolerate" any evil- in this case homosexuality in the military.

General Pace was only questioning the logic of allowing an openly homosexual presence in the military. Fighters are accustomed to "watching one another's backs", why must they be required to watch THEIR OWN?

God bless General Pace and the U.S. Marines!

Semper Fidelis!!!
