4 Star General Discusses Military Sequestration

Mod note: Edited misleading title to misleading article.

March 25, 2013 by Admin

amosGeneral James Amos a 4 star general is telling Marines to save ammo and prepare for a different kind of battle.
As a Naval Aviator, Amos commanded the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 and 2004. He served as the 31st Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps from July 3, 2008 to October 22, 2010. Amos assumed his current assignment on October 22, 2010.

In his YouTube video, General Amos warns about a “different landscape” and encourages people to think smarter. The General also encourages Marines to, “Save every round, every gallon of gas.”

This comes during a time when the DHS has stockpiled over 2 billion rounds of ammunition, purchased nearly 3000 tanks and refuses to answer questions about why they are doing it.

It's my understanding they were ordered, but not delivered or

stockpiled.They have not as yet been shipped out as yet. There is no proof that these rounds have even been made, only ordered..

There is just isn't verifiable info on these so called 2 billion round purchases.

Just because they were ordered up doesn't necessarily mean they were delivered and stockpiled...

Bob you need to edit this post and headline

Shameful propaganda, Bob. Where's your due diligence?
If you had read the comments below you would see that many point out that the clip is pure garbage and doesn't mean what 'libertarian crier' wants it to mean and you would have updated and fixed this thread.
But what you should have done is investigate it yourself to see if what you were linking was really true!
Here's the lesson: believe nothing until you've exhausted whatever means available to find out if what catches your attention is factual, trust nothing at face value and question everything.
This post gets down-voted by me for being a scare-mongering propaganda piece.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Wow. Just a few days ago at work they were telling the employees

to conserve masking tape. I thought it was just to save money, but now I see that it could be part of a plan to tape up everybody in the state.
Seriously though, if Sorcha Fall saw this story, it would say "nobody will fall for this". And ole Sorcha doesn't have high standards at all. From now on, consider libertarian crier a bad source of information.

The jarhead on the right

really cracks me up. How programed can you be?

38 seconds?

Really? What else was in the video?

I applaud the patriotism & concern, and have much respect for fellow soldiers. However, this is garbage. Fear-mongering at its finest. Any chance he could be speaking about budget funding? Sequestration? Guards shift work changing/hrs increasing? Downgrading routine maintenance, etc?

Sorry OP,

Its just that this kind of journalism really grinds my gears. Its the same business model that allows entities like Fox to pervert the minds of men. Sensationalism.

Marines Pay Little Attention

... even to explicit remarks by generals. Vague and cryptic comments like this don't even show up on their radars.

There is No...

...'red dawn alert' shown.

Edited video with supposition/hyperbole attached to it.

Seems to relate to desired cost cutting measures via a reduction of former wastefulness.

Where is the red dawn alert?

He seems

to be talking about the reduced funds for the military. As a former Marine, our budgets were thin as is, can't imagine how they are now.

I don't think this is some "Red Dawn" alert - pure conjecture on the OP's part

I agree. However, the two websites to which this is linked...

have been reliable sources in the past. We shall see.

I didn't make any connection to DHS

this seems more about the sequestration nonsense than anything else.

Seems like a veiled message

...from someone who decided to follow only "kill foreigners" orders and started preparing to defend some domestic innocents.

I suppose it's a start.

seems the video was cut short

It appears to be a fake, edited down video.
