NO PUNCHES PULLED HERE

Jimmy Carter, you're the father of the Islamic Nazi movement. You threw
the Shah under the bus, welcomed the Ayatollah home and then lacked the
spine to confront the terrorists when they took our embassy and our people
hostage. You're the runner-in-chief.

Bill Clinton, you played ring around Lewinsky while the terrorists were
at war with us. You got us into a fight with them in Somalia, and then you
ran from it. Your weak-willed responses embolden the killers. Each time you
failed to respond adequately they grew bolder, until 9/11.

John Kerry, dishonesty is your most prominent attribute. You lied about
American soldiers in Vietnam. Your military service, like your life, is
more fiction than fact. You've accused our soldiers of terrorizing women in
Iraq. You called Iraq the wrong war, wrong place, wrong time; the same
words you used to describe Vietnam. You're a fake. You want to run from
Iraq and abandon the Iraqis to murderers just as you did the Vietnamese.
Iraq, like Vietnam is another war that you were for, before you were
against it.

John Murtha, you said our military was broken. You said we can't win
militarily in Iraq. You accused United States Marines of cold-blooded
murder without proof. And said we should redeploy to Okinawa. Okinawa,
John? And the Democrats call you their military expert. Are you sure you
didn't suffer a traumatic brain injury while you were off building your war
hero resume? You're a sad, pitiable, corrupt and washed up politician.
You're not a Marine, sir. You wouldn't amount to a pimple on a real
Marine's butt. You're a phony and a disgrace. Run away John.

Dick Durbin, you accused our Soldiers at Guantanamo of being Nazis,
tenders of Soviet style gulags and as bad as the regime of Pol Pot who
murdered two million of his own people after your party abandoned South
East Asia to the Communists. Now you want to abandon the Iraqis to the same
fate. History was not a good teacher for you, was it? See Dick run.

Ted Kennedy, for days on end you held poster-sized pictures from Abu
Grhaib in front of any available television camera. Al Jazeera quoted you
saying that Iraqis torture chambers were open under new management. Did you
see the news this week Teddy? The Islamic Nazis demonstrate real torture
for you again. If you truly supported our troops, you'd show the world
poster-sized pictures of that atrocity and demand the annihilation of it.
Your legislation stripping support from the South Vietnamese led to a
communist victory there. You're a bloated fool bent on repeating the same
historical blunder that turned freedom-seeking people over to homicidal,
genocidal maniacs. To paraphrase John Murtha, all while sitting on your
wide, gin-soaked rear-end in Washington.

Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Carl Levine, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein,
Russ Feingold, Hillary Clinton, Pat Leahy, Chuck Schumer et al ad nauseam.
Every time you stand in front of television cameras and broadcast to the
Islamic Nazis that we went to war because our President lied. That the war
is wrong and our Soldiers are torturers. That we should leave Iraq, you
give the Islamic butchers the same ones that tortured and mutilated
American soldiers - cause to think that we will run away again and all they
have to do is hang on a little longer.

American news media, the New York Times particularly. Each time you
publish stories about national defense secrets and our intelligence
gathering methods, you become one with the sub-human pieces of camel dung
that torture and mutilate the bodies of American Soldiers. You can't strike
up the courage to publish cartoons, but you can help Al Qaeda destroy my
country. Actually, you are more dangerous to us than Al Qaeda is. Think
about that each time you face Mecca to admire your Pulitzer. You are
America's axis of idiots. Your collective stupidity will destroy us.
Self-serving politics and terrorist abetting news scoops are more important
to you than our national security or the lives of innocent civilians and
soldiers. It bothers you that defending ourselves gets in the way of your
elitist sport of politics and your ignorant editorializing. There is as
much blood on your hands as is on the hands of murdering terrorists. Don't
ever doubt that. Your! frolic s will only serve to extend this war as they
extended Vietnam. If you want our soldiers home, as you claim, knock off
the crap and try supporting your country ahead of supporting your silly
political aims and aiding our enemies. Yes, I'm questioning your
patriotism. Your loyalty ends with self. I'm also questioning why you're
stealing air that decent Americans could be breathing. You don't deserve
the protection of our men and women in uniform. You need to run away from
this war, this country. Leave the war to the people who have the will to
see it through and the country to people who are willing to defend it.

No, Commander-in-Chief, you don't get off the hook either. Our country
has two enemies: Those who want to destroy us from the outside and those
who attempt it from within. Your soldiers are dealing with the outside
force. It's your obligation to support them by confronting the axis of
idiots. America must hear it from you that these people are harming our
country, abetting the enemy and endangering our safety. Well up a little
anger please, and channel it toward the appropriate target. You must
prosecute those who leak national security secrets to the media. You must
prosecute those in the media who knowingly publish those secrets. Our
soldiers need you to confront the enemy that they cannot. They need you to
do it now!

The truth is the truth, is the truth. My hat is off to SgtMajor Pendry. The sad part, is he had to retire first before being able to write this. He probably would have been courtmartialed if he was still on active duty.

He would have been fine to write this while on AD.

However, he probably would have found Washington quite frigid towards him...

Soldiers are allowed to posess and express political opinion as long as it is not done while on duty, or while in a position of influence with the intention of causing others to conform upon threats of punishment.

(sorry, am really tired and thoughts are somewhat discombobulated)

Here's the controlling Article from the UCMJ. Although the SgtMaj is a Senior NCO, and not directly subject to Article 88, see the note at the bottom, which may include all ranks. (Source: http://usmilitary.about.com/od/punitivearticles/a/mcm88.htm )
Article 88—Contempt toward officials

“Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”

Elements.

(1) That the accused was a commissioned officer of the United States armed forces;

(2) That the accused used certain words against an official or legislature named in the article;

(3) That by an act of the accused these words came to the knowledge of a person other than the accused; and

(4) That the words used were contemptuous, either in themselves or by virtue of the circumstances under which they were used.

Note: If the words were against a Governor or legislature, add the following element

(5) That the accused was then present in the State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession of the Governor or legislature concerned.

Explanation.

The official or legislature against whom the words are used must be occupying one of the offices or be one of the legislatures named in Article 88 at the time of the offense. Neither “Congress” nor “legislature” includes its members individually. “Governor” does not include “lieutenant governor.” It is immaterial whether the words are used against the official in an official or private capacity. If not personally contemptuous, ad-verse criticism of one of the officials or legislatures named in the article in the course of a political discussion, even though emphatically expressed, may not be charged as a violation of the article.

Similarly, expressions of opinion made in a purely private conversation should not rdinarily be charged. Giving broad circulation to a written publication containing contemptuous words of the kind made punishable by this article, or the utterance of contemptuous words of this kind in the presence of military subordinates, aggravates the offense. The truth or falsity of the statements is immaterial.

Lesser included offense.

Article 80—attempts

Maximum punishment.

Dismissal, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and confinement for 1 year.

Note: While only commissioned officers can be charged under this article, DOD Directive 1344.10- POLITICAL ACTIVITIES BY MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES ON ACTIVE DUTY, extend these same requirements to all individuals on active duty. Enlisted members and warrant officers who violate these provisions can be charged under Article 92, of the UCMJ, Failure to Obey an Order or Regulation.

Just like Police Officers on duty, military lose many rights the citizen has. The sad part of it both are defending the citizen's rights.

The Seargeant Major would have probably ended his career and his pension if he had written this on active duty. He may not have been prosecuted if he was to resign or retire from service. Rank comes with responsibility right or wrong. This is for the good of the country.
I agree with everything he wrote. I think as more senior noncoms retire there will be more pices like this. Sometimes I think the left is Al Quieda America. The New York Times is their intell dept. Murtha is the propaganda minister. The rest of the bunch are the Al Quieda political party. And Bush does need to seal up the leaks and defend his position better.

Grandpop was a Marine lifer and he always said he has patience only for bird Colonels and Sergeants Major.

Good rule of thumb. SGM was right on the money.
