This demonstrates a complete lack of understanding on the part of the author. Sailors, along with the rest of the military forces, are sworn and obliged to obey any lawful order from their chain of command. If the POTUS says jump, as long as the law and constitution don't say to not jump, then they jump. Sometimes it sucks donkey balls, but that's the nature of civil democracy. On the bright side, this gives our dear leaders plenty of room to show just how stupid they are.We have a civilian-led military, but why should our ranking commanders be complicit in the administration’s war on it? Why don’t they stand up to Obama and his leftist cronies?
