In an inexcusable act of cowardice in the face of facts, marines have been ordered to run and hide when danger approaches. But Maj. Gen. Juan G.

The he stopped shooting – anyone else.
I guess this General Ayala is what we have come to expect from the leadership of a commander-in-chief who – well, never mind.
