Iraq War Veteran, Wounded in the Line of Duty, BLASTS Obama on Twitter

JR-SalzmanGRAPHIC warning: One picture in an embedded tweet is graphic in nature.


J.R. Salzman is a wounded warrior who lost his arm in the line of duty while serving in Iraq. In 2007, he met then candidate Obama who had his picture taken with Salzman and another wounded warrior. At the time, Obama told the Iraq war veteran that he was proud of their sacrifices.
Now, as the world watches Iraq falls at the hands of a violent terrorist group ISIS, many in the military are angry and frustrated at Obama’s decisions leading up to having the military leave Iraq, his taking credit, but not responsibility for any issues, as well as his response as the violence in the region has increased. After holding a press conference about the terrorist activities in Iraq, Barack Obama jumped on a plane to California for a fun in the sun weekend filled with fundraising speeches and golfing.

This caused Salzman to take to Twitter to voice his very strong opinion of Obama’s ‘leadership’ and seemingly flippant attitude about the military. He did not mince words and he did not hold back. He even had some harsh criticism for the media as well as a response for liberal trolls who attacked him for daring to speak out against their ‘Dear Leader.’ Thank you for your service to your country, sir, both then and now.

  1. This man is a hero and he’s telling it like it is. Obama is a narcissistic coward who wants to see our military and our nation fail. Mr. Salzman, thank you for your service and your sacrifice. There are still plenty of us out here who respect those of you have, are and will protect us – and those that attack you here can go GFTSelves. Saluting you….

    1. I don’t know who that Joe Michael Villa is, at the end of these tweets, but if I ever run into him, I’ll enjoy kicking the barry out of his grape.

    2. And notice VILLA still calls Bush a liar.. The wmd’s were there and proof now is the terrorist now have them in Iraq. And Syria has been using them on the Christians there. Those were taken to Syria from Iraq before our troops arrived there.. The Dems have repeated it for so long they will always believe it even if you rub their nose in it. That is all they had to go on after they were all for the war in the first place.. America was for the war! There ,unfortunately, are dip sh-ts in this country like him.. Much to our grief.. Yet we look at this young man who lost his arm and know we have hope inspite of people like Villa. Thanks to our young men and woman that have laid down their lives for the freedom of the American people of other nations around the world like Iraq. Obama has handed Iraq to the Terrorist his brothers.. He told Morsi he was one of them meaning the Muslim Brotherhood.. So of course he did what he did.. America does not want to wake up to what Obama is and he rubs it in their face DAILY. I have never seen such stupidity as people like VILLA. Thanks to this young man who fought in Iraq and lost his arm for freedom. You won the war… Obama LOST it and that will go down in History. God bless you and all that gave their all for freedom there and in America..

    3. I agree he has a right to free speech and so do I. I would like to find him and express my opinion bluntly to his face, not online, and see if he is the keyboard coward I believe him to be. Our Freedoms aren’t free! Just as our folks in uniform have defended our freedoms, so must we not bow to imbeciles who trash our Best’s sacrifices without repercussions!

    4. I whole heartedly agree with free speach, I spent 35 years in uniform to defend it(and all of the Constitution), But I remember a time when people would defend themselves against bullies(any person that says a GI losing part of his body did not do his job is a bully) and knock the snot out of them with cheers from bystanders. I see statements like this exactly like yelling “FIRE” in a crowded building when there is no fire, unsconcionable.

    5. Look at his photo – a rant about gay marriage…says this guy is sitting in his pjs, watching MSNBC, sipping his herbal tea, ranting to his partner about global warming, and still blaming Bush. What a pathetic, disgusting, loser.

    6. Either that or doing costumes and make up for a local drag show. No, on second thought, that would require far too much ambition for him to muster

  2. J.R. Salzman Thank you for serving congrats on your success It is really interesting to see opinions republic the present attempts a lot of criticism with no doubt , dissatisfaction and so on. considering the slaughter that US suffered and other derelictions on laws and procedures “which depend on how you look at it” you were saying that you served in Iraq i am interested in hearing about was was accomplished is it necessary to provide long term security there and is it comfortable to be there long term

    1. Nice attempt at spinning the issue. The real questions should be leveled at Obama. Does he feel comfortable with his foreign policies – especially his dismal failures in the middle east? Does he feel like he left the area in a better position than GW? Was this loss avoidable? Could we have sounded down the rhetoric and time tables in an attempt to leave these people with more stability?

      The list just goes on and on and on

    2. yes the list does do think anyone wanted to stay long term security i have learned to be observing the environment and identifying potential hazards, I had read that the satellite security was shut down along with most the radar factoring the numbers to stay and go might have been based on the Iraq participation assumption so with they US gear loss would you start with string number to build a foundation of all down and all down now and rehash or do think they going to try to rehash as they go

    3. Your writing expresses a great deal of experience! Isn’t the
      service primarily performance conduct and good appearance a long maintaining
      good character rapport with admin and direct superiors. I was think the same would
      be, rendered from the admin and superiors as it has been in my experience

      Till some unwitty unknowing even higher rank comes and Americanizes
      all the good effort, applying the no can and no should and no they better not syndrome
      criticizing and turning everything into the crapola so he can keep the money

    4. Seriously? Where did you grow up? Are you even American? All your posts sound like some freaky google translation.

  3. I feel this guys pain and rage. But Obama does not care about anyone other than himself and his agenda. We are all just pawns in his mind. Our lives do not matter at all unless someones death can be used to try to take our gun rights away.

  4. J.R. Salzman is there a particular plan you would require to satisfy your return to Iraq or do you have the handle and what to try this time

    1. Mr. Salzman is not and never was a military commander. His role is not to plan such a mission. But Obama has been, since 02JAN09 the commander-in-chief who doesn’t have to worry about getting his arm blown off. He needs to be the one to fashion a solution. I expect nothing less from a commandr at any level.

    3. good point Frank Woodward really just considering how much was put into it do think you think it would have been worth it to to have had more soldiers over there to provide a better security Do you believe they trained and provided rather than overtaken have you seen heard or otherwise have knowledge of better plans Sure it is up to the Commander in Chief and i believe he has provided and supported many plans how about they really want sit there *** and dictate while we try to keep up while tripping over planted and carried explosives ever other step there is no word of success in being there just a lot of unnecessary casualties and injuries Am i right

    4. you are not right. Given the right commanders, weapons and logistics our military can carry out any mission to completion. The problem starts when the ultimate decision making comes from a man that has never stood foot in that military. How can he possibly now how to command that military when he has no idea how it operates. then you take into consideration the decisions he did make were political towards his agenda and not military towards winning the battle. Then he armed the militant rebels with our own weapons ammunition and supplies to murder our soldiers with. Its as the man said He is doing all he can to lose a war that was already won!!!!

    5. every decision Oblamer makes is a political one. he does not think of anyone except himself. And since we don’t know so much about someone who has had multiple name changes, we really have no idea what his end goal is.

    6. You make a lot good since there I have not a clue as why
      that is not what has been done in all these years , suppose a rich country goes
      in calls a all down and then rehash confiscating all weapons suppose this sort
      of plan was disrupted by their extreme efforts to be fighters and gun totters,
      then the issue of the Iraq Military having individuals that are also members of
      the ISIS and ISIL and the Taliban and the
      Al Qaeda, so now Iraq soldiers
      that are partisan with all other national entities, the US the ISIS, ISIL and
      the Iraq contracts all these was to prevent such fighting however through
      interviews of each apparently some were stamped out or disqualified which apparently
      did not rest easy

      Suppose a all down and removal of all weapons would be of
      some help though within the perspective of security making it a no weapons
      middle east

    7. You are never more wrong. You know nothing of military history it would seem. A military presence is necessary in any country we go to war with to protect ourselves and to rebuild or fix their government. Casualties become lighter and lighter as we establish a foot hold and then remediate the government and strengthen it. Always takes time and the positive outcome is we usually form an embassy and a point of communication for our new ally.

    8. with that that you say a military presence is required great yipee the origins have an embassy so you saying All military troops were pulled i was under the impression several were closed though a few remained as did the embassy

      its been the same how ever we play! eventually one or both of the left out retaliates it is like the one sent home for better behalf groups with others and retaliates right or no I don’t now why we would want to be there to live under their Jihad or muslim laws i am definitely missing a clue somewhere

    9. If you look at the syntax of Krinders comments I don’t believe English is his first or most used language …troll

    10. “You are never more wrong. You know nothing of military history it would seem.

      Look in the mirror.

      “A military presence is necessary in any country we go to war with to protect ourselves and to rebuild or fix their government.”

      LOL

      And what happens when the WAR is unnecessary?

      How is waging wars of aggression across the globe count as “protecting ourselves”? Wouldn’t it make more sense to do as our Founding Fathers recommended and STAY THE FUCK AT HOME and MIND OUR OWN FUCKING BUSINESS?

      “Casualties become lighter and lighter as we establish a foot hold and then remediate the government and strengthen it.”

      Right. Just like what’s happening in Iraq right now. You heard about that right? Oh wait….that’s what THIS article is about.

      “Always takes time and the positive outcome is we usually form an embassy and a point of communication for our new ally.”

      Why do you use words like “usually” where they do not belong?

      “To go and defeat an enemy in their country then leave them in ruins and no education is most certainly insane and in vain. ”

      To go and defeat an “enemy” in their country when THEY ARE NOT YOUR ENEMY IN THE FIRST PLACE, bombing cities and causing violence all over the country with the idea that this promotes peace and stability, is the very definition of INSANE.

      “This was a clear stance Obama took whether you believe he did it intentionally or is just incompetent.”

      The only “clear stance” Obama has ever taken in his life, was on the putting green.

    11. After looking at your profile I realize that I probably should not respond. You certainly wrote enough damning evidence that you are not educated in history or paying attention to current events. You are a spineless liberal who preys on grammatical errors as a form of an attack. The word “usually” wasn’t the error btw. There are 2 other errors in my line but you completely missed it. However why would this be of any importance oh unless it would have made you feel important to point it out. But you failed at that. You also know nothing about our founding fathers obviously with rhetoric like that. You didn’t even gather the facts for this article or you would know that Obama screwed us in the war with Iraq you uninformed liberal. If we continued to rebuild and allowed them to train while we were present they would not be in this mess. All that we fought for in Iraq (and soon to be Afghanistan) is in fact in vain. I’m guessing that you would be one of these people whose philosophy is no one will mess with you if you do not mess with them. Peace must just BE and no one will ever kill you or your family or conquer your country. Hmmm, well I fought for your right to say what you will and I stand for your right to do so. However it is the duty of the intelligent Americans, unlike yourself, to do what is necessary even though we cannot count on everyone in our populace to agree. Our founding fathers rebelled against tyranny and set the standards that we are a free nation under God. I will continue to uphold this very idea. I happen to agree with your last line which is weird. I would have assumed you were an Obama mania voter. Or maybe you did vote for him and your pissed off. Hoo nose and this sintenence iz jest fur u. lol

    13. When Bush left office, the plan was to create and agree with the Iraq government on strategies to ensure stability by leaving forces there, much like we have with Germany since WWII. They were in negotiations which were not finalized by the day he left office, yet Bush was getting to an agreement. Remember, since the victory of the surge, Bush had rejected a tri-state plan and was attempting to create a government for all and to leave advisors and trainers there as long as necessary to ensure the stability and success of whatever Iraq government the people of Iraq settled on. I remember the euphoria of the first elections there. The hope of long term success. Mr Hopenchange Obama did not negotiate this part of the removal plan. He did not pursue it with any intent to provide stability to Iraq. He just wanted to pull our troops out and leave the Iraq people alone. That’s what he did. With full knowledge of the consequences. I now wonder if his non-engagement with the Iraq government was planned so that this very result would come to pass. I wonder if the excuse “they wanted our soldiers to be sharia compliant with no exemptions” was a trumped up excuse.

    14. You make a lot good since there I have not a clue as why
      that is not what has been done in all these years , Remember that the Iraq forces are comprised of ISIS and ISIL which they now have Iraq signia US signia ISIS and or ISIL signia

      Suppose a all down and removal of all weapons would be of

  5. Mr. J. R. Salzman, I salute you and your brothers that serve, and appreciate your sacrifices. @mikeejoe, you should just go live in Iraq, and take that tyrant Obama with you. Mr. Salzman and all our other veterans have every right to be upset. Some gave part, some gave all, and our “POTUS” is basically spitting in the face of all the sacrifices that were made, by all our troops and their families. Thank you to our troops and their families, and yes, I will fight for you!!!! @mikeejoe, I will paraphrase; “…it is better to keep your mouth shut, than to open it and prove your stupidity”.

    1. Let’s not wee wee ourselves! Obama is a Facist Imperial Communist loving anti American Muslim embracing racist!

    2. Whatever you think of Obama, he is not a Muslim. Remember that whole Reverend Wright issue before his first election? He’s a Christian, which is why he had to deal with that whole situation to begin with. See, this is the major problem with our Conservative party: making up facts reduces credibility and makes us seem like idiots. There are plenty of ACTUAL complaints against the president you can make, but when people say stupid crap like he’s a Muslim or that he was born in Kenya, not Hawaii, it makes us all look stupid.

  6. I understand his frustration, but that is why we should never have done the nation building in Iraq, in the first place. We should have gone in, gotten Saddam, and gotten out. Period.

    1. No, we should have stayed at home and MINDED OUR OWN FUCKING BUSINESS. Nowhere in the Constitution does it give this government the power to start unjustified wars of aggression on anyone.

    2. I’m willing to bet your against killing and slaughtering people because it would be wrong right? Would you say if someone was caught doing something so heinous like killing innocent people and raping and murdering they deserve to be judged and dealt with? That way there would be an effort of restoring peace among a nation? After all Peace is the goal your looking for I’m guessing. To reduce unnecessary mass slaughtering of people, wouldn’t it be nice if someone would step in and take care of the problem, the menace to society? Maybe, just maybe a country who was strong enough to help and aid another to reduce the lose of life and continual oppression. You know where I am going with this…but your too blind to see that war, even under its ugly boot, has sovereignty in victory in relinquishing evil for a time. People of all nations deserve the right to life at minimum.

    4. We tried this in the 1930s. Really worked out well did it not? Ended up with the entire “old”world on fire with more dead than they could ever count. We do not live in the 1800s the world is too interconnected to sit and watch.

      Our current problem is the lack of will to do things that will decisively end the confrontation. So instead of putting out the fire our politicians insist in running around stomping on the spark started blazes around the edges and feeding young Americans into the meat grinder. Not going to work, never has. For example had we bombed North Vietnam into the stone age and mined their harbors things would have been different. But as it was the leftists in US Congress who would not even furnish the South with ammo in the end, so whose side was McGovern and the rest REALLY on? If you look at the major cities of even Britain in 1946 vs the cities in Germany and Japan it was easy to see who won. Now we insist on winning in the short term but losing in the end due to not doing what needed to be done at the start. Not from the lack of courage and skill of the men pulling the triggers but due to wishy-washyness in DC. Obama does not want “radical” Islam destroyed and it seems that all our leaders since Reagan have been on some sort of leash that prevents them from allowing the US military to take out the threat with any finality. We are in a war against a theocracy that will eventually drive the final nail in the coffin of any true republic on the planet. But nobody will say this publicly. I understand this young man’s pain, frustration and anger. I have a young man who served a tour in Afghanistan sleeping a few feet away. He is not happy either. I have BTDT as well. Different war but the faces of the young men are remarkably similar… The blood the same color… All they can say is what many VN vets have said. “We were winning when I left…” When it comes here again the sheeple, some of whom seem to be posting here, will be screeching for the gov’t to “protect” them and more of out liberty will be flushed as a result. Yeah, elections really DO matter and have consequences. So voting for leftists-communists and their failed programs is not a good idea. Unless you are a sheeple.

    5. Having the ability to stop evil from happening gives us the MORAL RESPONSIBILITY to do so. The founding fathers believed in that. Saddam justified it when he murdered millions of people with poisonous gas. If we sit at home and wait for someone to start knocking on our door and ask to be stopped like we did in the 40′s until Pearl Harbor happened then we are no better than President Obama.

  7. This young man and many women and men like him are heros. I sure wouldn’t want obummer watching my back. I would probably be shot cause he would do it on purpose or wouldn’t know which end to point. He’s worthless as our president.

  8. Thank you soo much for telling it like it is also for great sacrifice. We need to get this loser out of office. fucking coward!

  9. Am I the only one who thinks it odd that Obama when first meeting the two soldiers, he said that he was proud of their sacrifices(lost limbs) instead of saying that he was proud of them for their sacrifice(losing limbs in the line of duty)? It could just be semantics but, in his original sentence it implies he is proud of the missing limbs, in the second sentence it would have indicated that he was actually proud of the soldiers. I believe he mouthed the original sentence to give the illusion that he was proud of our military, when every indication since proves the exact opposite. I also find it sickening to know that as POTUS he only learns of major world events a day after they occur by watching the news and/or reading the papers which seems to be immediately followed by him getting on a plane for a round of golf and a fundraiser. He is the Paris Hilton of politics….lots of money, doing nothing but wasting time and money…and being proud of it.
    With all that being said…I am extremely proud of our military men and women everywhere for the sacrifices they make/made. I am also proud of this soldier “tweeting” what we are all thinking. Unfortunately, Obama will be shielded from this story as his ego surly could not take it and he would more-than-likely windup on the floor of a broom closet in the fetal position sucking his thumb and blubbering like an idiot.

    1. Yes, you have to listen very carefully to WHAT he says, HOW he says it, in order to parse it logically and legally to arrive at a meaning. You cannot project what you want him to say and believe that. I believe you are exactly right to be concerned about what he actually said versus what we expect someone in his position to say. How he says stuff is mesmerizing and hypnotically suggestive and slips meanings and beliefs into your understanding without actually meaning what he seems to say. It’s part of his meteoric ascent to the office with a cult following that is just now starting to wake up to what his policies are actually doing to our country.

    2. He doesn’t write his own speeches. He has an army of handlers behind him to carefully craft these words for him. In the grand scheme of things, he is nothing more than a “useful idiot.”

    3. Obama reads from a teleprompter and still makes triple the gaffs Bush ever did. You will never see that on the news.

    4. Unfortunately, we have had more than a few “leaders” who fit that description, but Obama has given a whole new meaning to that line of thought!

    5. He is nothing but a coward and it has become pretty obvious at this point. He only thinks of himself and cares little of others. His party has allowed this type of behavior to go unchecked and it’s all in the name of “having power”. I find it hard to believe his party and himself care so little of our fine country.

  10. What pisses me off is that ISIS will take over Iraq and Syria, dig up all the wmds that Sadam didn’t have, and do their best to use them against American and Israeli cities.

    1. This ISIS and ISIL will take over, just a fraction the numbers and strategy did
      not work out though there is question as to why the Iraq forces stepped down
      and left why were they not top of the intrusion

      Will US be able to conquer the ISIS and ISIL without the
      severe consequences

      US Suckers

    2. Hey, is it Krinderhagen, or were you trying to come up with a clever name to advertise your level of
      intelligence?

      If so, it’s spelled K-I-N-D-E-R-G-A-R-T-E-N ………..

    3. Remember that Iraq forces are comprised of members that are also taliban, al qaeda, ISIS and ISIL and now US suppose the interviews filters out some they believe would not serve the purpose adequately

      all this threat of gun confiscation and no guns allowed laws i think Iraq would be a great place to start all down and confiscate weapons then rehash

    4. I’m sorry, I couldn’t hear you over the sound the U.S. Marines made when they stormed the entire region in the 90′s and had next to no casualties. Don’t tread on me you idiot excuse for a sentient human being.

    5. I didn’t say we structured them, I said good luck to them giving us severe consequences.

    6. Oh Man thanks for service its a great deal that anything at all was done “clues to clueless i haven’t a clue

    7. The elite in the west are scared to death of there ragheads. When have you ever seen the west stand by and watch 1000′s be executed and there is deathly silence. Obama has killed these police and soilders as sure as he pulled the trigger himself. This is making the ISIS even stronger. We should all be afraid because this will be coming to a town near you.

    8. I agree with your idea. I always believed that there were wmds never found and wondered if the Russians may have assisted in the removal process during the delayed inspections. It would be another black eye or worse if it becomes reality and we were caught sleeping through political Bush bashing.

  11. Joe Michael Villa ( @mikeejoe ) is your typical low info, “occupy whatever” who, like Obama, has no respect for our military or the sacrifices they make, and parrots the same, tired BS we’ve been hearing for almost 6 years now…”Blame Bush, RAAAW!” “Blame Bush, RAAAW!”. Only difference is, he’s now taken it another step lower by blaming the soldiers. What a low-life, POS. Everyone should flood his Twitter account to let him know what an ignorant, vile, reprehensible, sorry azz excuse for human feces he is……

    1. You guys are entitled to think what you want. But at the end of the day, Obama is a politician just like the rest of them. Don’t let yourselves be convinced that the Tea Party is any more noble or patriotic than any other political group. They are as self-interested as any other party going for federal office, they’re just called something different. Also, politics are not sports teams,you CAN elect someone based on character even though they say they are in a different party. Like I said, they’re all the same anyway.

  12. J.R. Salzman, there is a storm brewing on the American horizon. Your sacrifice will not go unnoticed. We all thank you and your comrades for your service. God is listening to the prayers and sees the suffering. It won’t be long before the American people will see that this sitting president is in fact a fraud. I pray for you my brother and the many who have fought or still fighting in vain. It is sad but a very commendable thing to continue the fight when the odds stack against you. It is honorable in the very least to persist with due diligence to love your country when it seems to fail you. May God love and protect your families.

  13. You fucking terrorist, you think you are destroying our country, all you are doing is pissing us off, you will see what pissing off Americans does. Keep pushing We will throw you and your golf clubs in the brig.

  14. I blame the american people for giving this “person” 4 additional years in office.

    1. They weren’t Americans in my opinion, neither is the impostor in the White House!

  15. I have written my state representatives encouraging them to stand up and
    impeach Obama! The only way we are going to end this awful dictators
    regime is to find someone in congress to stand up and impeach him for
    the laws he has broken. Talking about him helps relieve frustration,
    but if your really as tired and broken from all of his bad decisions as I
    am. Stand up and get active about getting him out of the Whitehouse and getting him out now!

  16. I think we should start boycotting everything Obama comes in contact with. Starting with those golf courses he went to in Palm Springs California this last weekend. They opened their doors and catered to him, obviously made a lot of money by Obama and his entourage. So the golf club needs to be punished with boycotts for welcoming this fraud who is and will be putting Americans in jeopardy.

  17. None of yall care really we organize events no one shows up we petition no one writes we beg people to call their congressman no one does don’t comment on here like you care operation American spring and no one showed so don’t pretend like you want freedom of speech when your actions clearly say you don’t.

  18. You know why the Obama’s love the Desert? It is as close to MECCA (name of down valley town) as he can get.

  19. okay anyone know who this joe guy is????????????? or better yet HEY JOE get in touch and say something like this to me in person, I am in California where you at

  20. The worst president ever? Of course. Our country has to right itself. J.R. Salzman and his fellow soldiers are the heroes here. Mr. Obama should be ashamed.

  21. Obama is a fuck..sorry for my explicit content maybe the media should censor this too and continue to hide the truth from WE THE PEOPLE….

  22. Joe Michael Villa, @mikeejoe. God Forgive you, because I won’t. I want 5 minutes with you pal, just 5 minutes. You disgraceful human being.

  23. So if I’m supposed to believe what you all have posted here, Obama should be recommitting troops to the Middle East? That is patently ridiculous. The cultures in that region of the world have been at war with someone, be it outsiders like the Romans or Greeks, or with each other, like the varying sects of Islam, since the dawn of recorded history. No amount of intervention–past, present, or future–is going to stop these cultures from going to war with each other. Only the Middle East can fix the Middle East.

    We cannot afford to lose more American lives trying to fix a problem that has existed for more than 1500 years. Hopefully we withdraw from Afghanistan and wash our hands of the Middle East militarily.

    1. But the Middle East won’t wash its hands of us, and therein lies the problem. Oceans won’t keep this country safe….Obama lost all the gains our majestic military made over the years, because he wants to go down in history as the President who won the peace. History will NOT be kind to Obama…. God Bless America and God Bless our military men and women.

    2. If they did merely confine their killing to themselves, that would be okay with me. The problem is when their 8-century jihadist mentality spills over to driving our own jetliners into our own buildings. Remember 9-11-2001?

  24. I salute this man and every man and woman who have served to protect this country. It’s shameful how O and his team have basically diminished everything our war hero’s have accomplished. The only training O has had on how to run a nation he’s learned by watching television. I bet he has the channel tuned to MSNBC.

  25. Your the fucking man Salzman, PREACH IT BROTHA! From a fellow brother in arms thank you for your service and your sacrifice. You will always have your brothers and sisters behind you man.

  26. Mr. Salzman, I will also thank you for do your best in trying to set Obama and the people straight on this matter !!

  27. To J. R. Salzman, I wish to thank you and all your brothers for your service to our country. It is not the President, the man, that we fight for. It is our country, our neighbors, our friends, and our family. I am a Vet as well..but I never had to fight….but would have if needed. Sorry that you all are being treated this way and Hope that our so called “leaders” will eventually get their heads out and get done what needs to be done….again> Thank You for you sacrifice.

  28. Time for our yellow bellied Congress to take action against this TYRANT Obama!! They are as much to blame as Obama is!! He should have been impeached already!! They all say ‘I saw all this coming 2 years ago” I say, ‘well why didn’t you do something about it then?. C O W A R D S!!

  29. Joe- Michael- Villa you are a (P.O.S.) J.R. is very brave and is telling the truth. If i recall right the democrats where for the war also . Who ar you going to blame since Obama is sending troops back in to Iraq is it going tobe BUSH AND CHENNEY. I thank All of our people who have served to protect AMERICA.

  30. Obama needs to be arrested and tried for treason.
    Thank you J.R. for your service and sacrifice.

  31. THANK YOU & YOUR FAMILY FOR YOUR SERVICE & SACRIFICES. THANK YOU FOR ONCE AGAIN DEFENDING US, BY SPEAKING OUT HERE. EACH & EVERY TROOP/VET ARE IN MY HEART AND ALWAYS IN MY PRAYERS. <3

  32. To call BO a coward is an understatement. He’s a spineless wimp so typical of the left. Some times you have to pick up your weapon and run TO the fight.

  33. Hmm, I wonder what will happen when Obama declares martial law in this country and tries to use our military to enforce it.The way he is treating and pissing off our troops I will guess you will probably see a coup against Obama and his cronies. Our U.S. forces are rapidly starting to despise this President and his administration. Warning to Obama and his Staff, If you don’t stop what you are doing, you may not like the results later! Just say’in.

    1. Isn’t it sad that our troops, for the most part, have little to no respect for their own leader?

    2. In general, people who are respected give respect back. That must be why Obama gets no respect from troops.

  34. J.R. wasn’t trying to be disrespectful towards the President! He was being open and honest! An honorable man that stood up to the truth of it all! There are those times,in which we cannot see the wrong were doing,until we are told about it, from another viewpoint! A true and honest friend would tell it like it is! such as, J.R. Salzman. Thank you J.R. for your service and courage! Without you and your comrades, our Nation would be doomed!

  35. Obama is bored and he is doing everything he can to get fired so he can complain about how racist we are as a nation. I spent a lot of years in HR and I know that tactic very well….it’s as plain as the nose on our faces.

  36. Good for this soldier to speak out and tell the truth about this situation! Obama should be impeached and then sent back to Kenya! Our service members are the real Heros not the politicians who are zeros. And the guy who made the comment about losing a limb. I hope you get cancer and die a painful long death you POS!

  37. God Bless You !!!! I will not lye down my soldier , I am a civilian and I feel your PAIN, YOUR SACRIFICE, YOUR HONER, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY YOUR OATH….Please continue as America’s only hope now to save this country and our freedom is the civilian soldier.

  38. Joe villa your an idiot !!!! I believe I guy who lost his arm for you and me, Has a right to vent a little. But as you , you have the right to shut your mouth or get a fist shoved in it .

  39. He wasn’t sitting on his hind quarters… he was swinging his golf club as he debated the issues of global warming. Obama is only for Obama and the money he can spend on himself and for whatever benefit he can bleed from the position he doesn’t deserve.

  40. I’ve always believed that one of the requirements to be the President of the United States should be service in the Military. The coward Obama never served. Bush did. Bush was winning this current war. He and his wife were well respected around the world. Obama is loosing the war. He released 5 terrorists back to their country to get one deserter back, yet turns his back on a soldier being held in Mexico because of an accidental border crossing with three US Army firearms. Evidently “no man left behind” doesn’t mean the same thing to Obama as it does to the rest of us. Obama and his wife are an embarrassment to this Country. When did you EVER hear another country call one of our First Ladies “rude and arrogant” as China did after her recent “vacation” with family in tow? Obama lies constantly, picks and chooses which laws he follows and which he doesn’t, and by-passes Congress for approvals constantly using Executive Orders. Do you ever remember a President that took as much time away from office on “vacations” as Obama? His approval rating is at 41% – that means almost 6 out of 10 people think he is a bad President. Time to send him back to whenever it is he came from. Impeachment sounds better and better all the time.

  41. It is as plain as the noon day sun that Barak Hussein Obama is not an American in heart. He has lied to the American people. He has used the American people. And he has abandoned the American people. When are our congress members and senators going to take action and order the impeachment and removal of Barak Obama and Eric Holder from office? And order the immediate arrest of Lois Lerner and Shinseki? We must do this as a nation to show the other nations we are cleaning house and will still be a force to reckon with in the world! We MUST do this if we are going to survive as a nation of freedom and justice in the world! Others have been impeached for far less. We NEVER negotiate with terrorists! We never leave our allies hanging! We never leave weaker nations to suffer under the hands of senseless brutality! WE ARE AMERICA! We need to stand up for America and true Americans and take this country back from the brink of destruction! God bless America! America, BLESS GOD!

  42. I am not a big fan of the guy myself, but people take it too far. If people really feel the way they say, why wont they do anything to stop it. The people have the power. The truth is they just want to go online and bitch and complain instead of taking a stand. A bunch of lazy cowards. You expect your represenative to do something, but ALL politicians are lying narcissists that say one thing and mean another, yet we continue to vote them into office insted of changing things. pathetic whining does not help anyone, and it starts to get repetative and annoying.

  43. YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF ONE ???? WHY DO THEY LET THIS GUY KEEP DOING WHAT HE IS DOING ??????? AWNSER =?

  44. I don’t know who that Joe Michael Villa is, at the end of these tweets, but if I ever run into him, I’ll enjoy kicking the barry out of his skull.

  45. J m Villa you don’t deserve to be in a country that men have fought and died for with your flippant prog lib attitude, You should be ashamed, but people like you just take up space. I know you don’t care about anything but yourself, but there is a God who loves you still. The One true God.

  46. Obama is a Closet Muslim carrying out his agenda. The total Destruction of America & it’s Military.

  47. The last tweet by Joe Michael Villa infuriates me! Obama sent our soldiers into a battle against barbarians and then made sure he tied one hand behind their backs instead of letting them fight a war like it was a war. The soldiers did their job, despite Obama’s restrictions on them. He took credit when it favored him and ran from credit from it didn’t. We all sleep soundly at night because of the work every man/woman does who puts on the uniform, not because pajama boy in the White House is running around pretending to know what he is doing.

  48. So he wants more soldiers sent to get their limbs blown off? Maybe another 10 years of occupation? 20? I know Mr. Salzman doesn’t want to entertain the possibility that he lost his limb for nothing, nobody would, but I think it’s a little more important to prevent future American casualties. Let the Iraqis fight for themselves. They wanted us to leave so we did.

  49. How come we know that obama hates our country and our soldiers and the entire congress is clueless? IMPEACH them all………

    1. The soldiers aren’t clueless. They are doing their job. The job they are under contract to do. Such a shame they have to stick to their orders, happy or not, but our government can wake up one morning and decide on new rules and regulations to chip theirselves off the contract.

    2. The soldiers aren’t clueless. They are doing their job. The job they are under contract to do. Such a shame they have to stick to their orders, happy or not, but our government can wake up one morning and decide on new rules and regulations to chip theirselves off the contract.

  50. I love my country……But……Every day in every way…I hate my government…. more and more

  51. You are my & America’s HERO! That is a fact & that will go down in history! O Bama ‘s a looser & the worst president this country ever had & that will in fact go down in history also. I just pray we can outlast this debacle?

  52. I have no idea how any American can hate Obama – if you actually understood politics, health care, education, climate change, poverty or gun violence issues you would support the Democrats 100%. Republicans are the enemy to not only America but the entire world – those who do not see this are disillusioned from reality and totally ignorant to their own well being and the future of humanity. Is more American lives lost on a war that is not winnable (against what is really the entire middle east) a good idea simply to justify the lives already lost?

    1. Yes, because I totally love Democrats pushing out my hard-earned tax dollars to the entitled filth of America! Please, enlighten me on how Republicans are an enemy to the “entire” world.

      There are ups and downs to both parties. I give it that. But you are a damn fool if you can’t get off the koolaid.

  53. This is the land of the free because of the brave American’s like J.R. Salzman. God bless you, thank you for your service and oooOOORAH from an old grunt.

  54. Hope for the human race has sprung in me again due to the comments ive seen. Salzman thank you for serving our country and protecting those at home in the states and Afganies and Iraqis who lived in the places you fought. You have my Respect and tell’em how it is. Obama is killing America Day by Day

  55. It’s like living in the twilight zone with this guy, he has not done anything right in 5 year’s he has no forsight, everything is a surprise to him, I see thing’s he could have done in Iraq like blow the idiot isis up in the desert after they slaughtered hundred’s of people and were moving toward Baghdad they were wide open no where to hide obama could have called up 1 or 2 Apache chopper’s and killed all of them but no he let’s them get to Baghdad , now what this will be another Vietnam it started with advisors on the ground and blew up same thing will happen here does obama really think he can get them to like him, thank God for Isreal they will do what has to be done if we wait for obama to decide we will be waiting as long as we have waited for the XL oil pipe line it’s been 5 year’s and he can’t decide so now we will be looking at $10.00 a gal. for gas, good job mr. president we can depend on you to make our live’s miserable.

  56. Joe michael villa…you can say what you just HATEFULLY said BECAUSE of what these brave soldiers did. You are a coward piece of crap
