Guess what Obama? There are more bayonets in use by Marines today than in 1916
Hey Obama! YOU LIE! Of course, the media applauded Obama’s ‘horses and bayonets’ crack last night, and nearly creamed their pants. Problem again is this shows how detached that not only Obama is, but the corrupt state run lapdog media. Obama said there are fewer bayonets in use today than there were in 1916? I hate to break it to you Barry, but YOU LIE! There are actually more in use today than in 1916!
Some users on Twitter have claimed that, by virtue of the USMC still using bayonets, there actually are more bayonets in use than 1916, when the army had between 100,000 and 140,000 enlisted members. As of 2010, the Corps boasted 203,000 active duty members and 40,000 reserve marines.
Regarding horses, a statue of a member of the U.S. Special Forces on horseback was just unveiled at Ground Zero in New York City. When our Special Forces invaded Afghanistan post-9/11, many did so on horseback. I personally remember sitting for a lecture in Austin, TX in 2005, given by a member of one of the first Special Forces teams to arrive in Afghanistan. He talked at length about their reliance upon horses.
