Since Colin Kaepernick’s silent protest of the national anthem became a national topic, the overwhelming sentiment of those who are in opposition to his protest is that it is disrespectful to members of the United States Armed Forces. Monday morning on Mike & Mike, ESPN’s nationally syndicated morning sports talk show, the two co-hosts, Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, revealed that the reaction that they have received on Twitter from active members of the military and veterans stands in contrast to the perception of many in the general public. The Mike & Mike official Twitter page boasts over 1.2 million followers.

“Of the tweets that we’re getting from military and former military people,” Golic reports, “definitely the majority are saying he has every right to do what he’s doing, and that’s exactly what we fought for. You may not like it, but he has every right to do that.” Greenberg adds, “I’ve got sheets and sheets and sheets of tweets from people who say they are military members currently serving or formerly serving who support Kaepernick’s right to do what he did.” Greenberg then responds directly to a tweeter who asserts that no matter what Kaepernick’s intentions were, his protest was, in fact, disrespectful to all military personnel who have served in the armed forces.

The U.S. Department of State approved a possible sale of tanks, remedy machine guns, health ammunition, nurse and other land force military supplies to Saudi Arabia worth $1.15 billion.

The State Department gave its approval of the sale to Congress, which now has 30 days to review it before the sale can proceed.

Saudi Arabia requested more than 100 tanks, 300 machine guns, 100 smoke grenade launchers, and other military equipment and ammunition, according to the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA).

“This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a strategic regional partner which has been and continues to be a leading contributor of political stability and economic progress in the Middle East,” the DSCA said in a statement.

“The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region,” the DSCA added.

The announcement of the proposed sale of the land force military equipment came the same day that news of an airstrike by the Saudi Arabia-led coalition in Yemen killed 14 civilians working at a food factory, The Associated Press reported.
