Something Awful is Brewing at the Highest Levels of Our Military

It’s the beginning of a never-ending bad dream. President Joe Biden and the Pentagon have managed to birth a new terrorist haven, destroy much of U.S. strategic deterrence, and alienate our allies and much of the country.

In the hours after the horrific deaths of 13 service members, we have been reassured by our military that our partnership with the Taliban to provide security for our flights was wise. We were told that the terrorist victors share similar goals to ours in a hasty American retreat from Kabul. We were reminded that Afghan refugees (unlike U.S. troops) will not be forced to be vaccinated on arrival.

Such statements are either untrue or absurd.

On the very day of the attack that killed American troops, the sergeant major of the U.S. Army reminded us in a tweet that diversity is our strength, commemorating not the dead, but Women’s Equality Day. If so, then is the opposite of diversity—unity—our weakness? Will such wokeness ensure that we do not abandon the Bagram Airfield in the middle of the night without opposition?

While we pray to God to turn the tide of evil that is sweeping across the world, the Devil seems to be doubling down, as he seems to have most of the world leadership on his team. We see a tragic parade of corrupt and greedy power mad people, using the Chinese control of most of our press to deceive the general public.
We now allow enemies to hide behind human shields, unlike the methods that we were forced to use in World War II, which is the last war that we won.

I am embarrassed for our military, Their leaders in Washington should all face court marshalls. They have forgotten what it is to be American and to be proud. They can’t even look at themselves in the mirror without disgust

It would be irresponsible to believe that some in the upper level of our military are not in collusion with Traitor Joe and his globalist Nazi cohorts. As Commander in chief those in the military should have immediately relieved Biden of his duties as Commander in Chief for his immoral acts and for aiding the enemy.

What America is experiencing is obama 2.0 on extreme steroids! Thanks, puppets for voting and cheating to put senile quid pro joe in office. You all have screwed America thoroughly and allowed a closer step to communism. I hope you are pleased with yourselves. You are directly responsible for destroying this great country!

I retired as a Senior NCO after 24 years, not because I wanted to but because I couldn’t stomach what the military leaders were turning into. Senior military officers made decisions based not on what was best for the defense of our country but what would get them the best political or defense contractor job when they retired. I watched it start in the 70’s and it has been increasing ever since. The current crop of egotistical, self centered, greedy, amoral individuals don’t have the guts to stand up to that incompetent bafoon that some people refer to as president and resign rather than carry out that debacle in Afghanistan Silly Millie presided over, resulting in the needless death of 13 Brave Americans and injury of many more. The current crop of non leaders should be fired and that Marine LtCol that called for accountability should be promoted.

Holding fire on the bomber was an order from SecDef; SecDef should be fired and tried for treason.

In Vietnam we had the C-47 “Spooky” aircraft flying air cover at night. One night a major was piloting the bird when VC were observed setting up mortars. He requested permission to fire and his request was rejected. He was told that friendlies were in the area. He made 3 more requests with the same result. Finally, he told the base command post to get ready for “friendly incoming” as the first mortars went airborne, and that’s when he opened fire. VC died. The mortar fire ceased. The major got grounded for 6 months.

The Sergeant Major of the Army and “Women’s Equality Day”. How about this for equality sh*t for brains: two of the dead Marines were women. And no one else will say this truth so I will: They were on the wall because THEY WERE WOMEN. I guarantee you that their commanders sent them up on the wall because of vile AFGHANI Islam’s sensitivity about men – especially kaffir (non Muslim) – men, touching Muslim women. Two of thirteen (15.4 percent for those recently educated in racist math) is unlikely representative of the true percentage of women in a Marine Infantry battalion or a battalion of the Army’s 82nd Airborne. Their commander should be asked about this, and if so he should be punished. It is also reasonable to argue women should not be exposed to the danger a combat male soldier is. Like it or not a woman is more valuable to a society than a male is. Kill a woman and you kill multiple generations of children and a whole family line. And for a woman to die over a Muslim’s idiotic misogynist “feelings” is a crime against humanity. Just another part of the Bidensitas’ crimes.

When army tanks go into our streets to fire on Americans because we oppose the ruling elitist class, we will have no allies to help fight this tyranny because our relationships have been destroyed by Biden’s inept decision to evacuate Afghanistan. This was a deliberate ploy to isolate the US from our former allies.
