Hey Bob, remember we had something along these lines way back when Clinton was President. I think there was a soldier who basically told a NATO officer (Some third world doofus who probably had a rich daddy so he became an officer after paying a few bucks) to go screw after he got 'ordered' to do something. The soldier believed he only had to listen to orders form officers of the US Armed forces. He got in trouble becuase he was a soldier of 'NATO' and not of the US. Something like that. Kind of fuzzy, but I remember it being a big thing in the whole Clinton idea of we are just one big wonderful world.

It is always a problem when you are in the military, and your commander and chief may not be one that inspires a whole heck of a lot of confidence. I remember clearly when Clinton left the Presidency, a very high ranking NCO was teaching a class to soldiers and said something like "You need to always be your best, and not embarass yourself or the Army by any stupid behavior with females in your ranks, like that bastard Clinton. I can say that now, he is no longer my commander in chief, I held it back before and just soldiered on, and so should you" Basically, like anything else, you get great bosses and loser bosses, and you just have to sort of grin and bear it until the next one comes in, and hope for the best.

I got what this kid is going through, but you really do need to tone it down when it comes to the leadership. You can like or not like the guy in charge, but actively starting a dialogue against the guy is not a good idea. Calling him a 'Traitor' is completely insane, and those doing that should be slapped around. Throwing him out is a bit much too. He needs a good counseling from an NCO like I saw, understand that you will not always deal with the best, and 'charlie mike' until the next guy.

My 2 cents.
