Sgt. Bowe Bergdhal Enters Guilty Plea
As I listened NBC air Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl making his comments about how his current situation is somehow all President Trump’s fault and how he can’t get a fair trial, so really he has no choice but to plead guilty to charges of desertion and misbehavior, However, I simply see a prime example of why our Country is in the shape it is in … no sense of personal responsibility. We can always find something to blame! The President is a very popular choice now. President Trump has been blamed for weather patterns, floods, hurricanes, North Korea’s aggression, Iran’s support of terrorism, ISIS attacks in the U.S. The list goes on and on.
Leaving His Post of Duty Was Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s Decision
Nobody forced Sgt. Bergdahl to leave his post in Afghanistan! That was his decision. Furthermore, if he had a problem with his unit or mission, the U.S. Army provides a mechanism to relay your concerns in the appropriate manner. Every soldier know that desertion and misbehavior in the face of the enemy is a serious offense … at one time, punishable by death.
Six Soldiers Died Trying to Locate and Rescue Bergdahl!
So, as Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl tells his tale about how unfair this process has been to him and insults everyone in the military justice system by insinuating there is no way they could remain professional and to their jobs in light of a campaign comments by then candidate, Donald Trump, remember this! Six soldiers who died in attempts to locate and rescue Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, including one who left behind a pregnant wife and young child! Perhaps, it would be nice if NBC focused a bit on the stories of those six soldiers. In addition, the five Islamic Jihadists traded for Sgt. Bergdahl’s release are back at large and probably planning to murder more Americans in the future.
The Blame Game!
This is all a direct consequence of individual Bergdahl’s decision to leave his post of duty in Afghanistan eight years ago. The blame is nobody else’s. He deserves what he gets. My sympathy is for the soldiers he endangered and maybe, his parents.
