The World of Obama: Military Medals for Showing Restraint

Can you possibly get anymore out of touch with reality than the buffoons in the Obama administration? They have now proposed a medal for restraint in combat. Talk about a good way to get yourself and your comrades killed. Luckily though, FL Pundit has been granted a peak at an illustration of the proposed Courageous Restraint Medal.

Also being considered, is a new medal to honor the fastest deserter:

That's hilarious Pundit. You should make a shirt out of that one.

It never ends. What next, an award for the fleetest of foot deserter? This is an outrage, but par for the course with these idiots.

I'm pretty sure it's got Velcro instead of a pin.....

Let me suggest one change. Instead of having a chicken in the medal, why don't you put a picture of Herb Tarlek being chased by his old lady. I think that would be more fitting.

The Eared Leader Chicken Little award named after Wuss Boy Barry, the Keyan turd hurdler....

One word comes to mind on this and many things you post. Fitting. Well done.

How absurd. This is counter to everything these guys are taught. It's not bad enough that their turning our country into a socialized mess, now they want to change how the military engages in battle.

If I were asleep or unconscious and somehow 'earned' this new medal, I would refuse to wear it. It would undermine my cred as a small unit leader. But restraint under combat conditions is as old as combat itself. Just part of the job to try not to kill the good guys. When a warrior makes good decisions in combat, give him a combat medal.

I am offended by this possible medal. It implies that our military ordinarily run amok, wantonly killing civilians -- or wrose, deliberately. The American soldier, unlike certain "soldiers" who wrap bombs around themselves and walk into malls, discos, etc., shows great restraint every day.

That's great! This is a freaking joke and the soldiers I've talked with all know. They aren't fooling anyone with this. As I read somewhere else, they already have an award for courageous restraint - an American Flag shaped like a triangle.

This is a perfect example of what ensues when nobody in the National Leadership has an inkling about the military, its role, its history, its tradtions and its unqiue code of conduct. A civilian-led goverment that issues order for the Armed Forces to carry out is how American has always operated. But has there been any time in US history where so damn few of its national leaders have any firsthand understanding of the Armed Forces? Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Dodd, Kennedy, Waxman, Frank, Boxer et all - all of these Admin and Congressional hacks are 100% ignorant about the US military and have no basis in reality as far as then being adequately equipped to lead or giude it... They are military illiterates and it clearly shows here.

Idiocracy in action. If the restraint under fire is noteworthy, then there are plenty of awards currently in the system that would be appropriate. To me the concept is a good one, the reality is different.

We as a society have become much more sensitive to "collateral damage" in the last 25 years. Could you imagine the uproar today if we just started dropping dumb bombs on cities to destroy war-making potential? I wouldn't be surprised if war crimes tribunals were convened. I am sorry, deeply sorry if an innocent civilian is killed accidently but when a foreign government acts so foolishly as to bring the U.S.'s wrath down, well you will suffer for it. Fair? Nope. Reality? Yup.

Shades of Monte Python.........Run away! Run away!

Turd, I'm going to do you a favor and not let my old lady read your comments. If you had to face up against her bad side, you'd be wearing your name in your shorts. Thank me later.

These are some of the best comments I have seen in a while. Just goes to show how pissed-off people are about the suggestion of such a medal.

If the military does adopt the use of this medal, I suggest the first one go to the General(can't remember his name) who was humiliated by Barbara Boxer because he called her Ma'am.

The only thing is the awards would all be posthumously awarded
