NO CLUE

Obama, you need to get your facts straight.
Marines still use bayonets. One would think the "commander in chief" would know that.

If I'm in another battle, I would not bet on any soldier returning home that carries a bayonet on their weapon. Today's weapons have such a rapid fire rate that bayonets will not be needed anymore. All they do is make your rifle not shoot straight. They do make for good pictures though.

one of my nephews is a marine. in an infantry division. for the uninformed infantry is where battles are won and lost. he has been trained in hand to hand combat, including the use of a bayonet, along with how to use a knife, and a rifle in close encounters. close encounters engaging the enemy happen all the time.

and i could tell u more about my nephew in the Rangers, but security prevents

An M9 bayonet is still standard issue to Marines in the Infantry and Scouts. The Army still has bayonets in their inventory as well as the NG and reserves. Since our military as a whole is much larger than in 1919 it stands to reason that we have more bayonets in inventory.
Of course the word reason is not in obama's vocabulary.

The man is lost as a goose when it comes to being presidential. He spends money like a drunk in a casino.
