A must read is the story linked below.
EXCERPT: “Obama is an unpopular president in the eyes of the men and women in uniform. Yet his two-term administration is etching a deep imprint on the culture inside the armed forces. As commander in chief, he will leave behind a legacy that will shape the Pentagon’s personnel policies and the social customs of rank-and-file troops for decades to come.
For Obama’s supporters, the cultural changes he’s overseeing are on a level with President Truman’s 1948 order that desegregated the military and put it at the forefront of the national push for racial equality.
But to his critics, his moves amount to heavy-handed social engineering that erode deep-seated traditions and potentially undermine good order and discipline.”
Just three points to discuss here.
One, it needs to be stated that Wilson was the very one who REsegregated the US Military. Now, when Truman desegregated the US Military that in itself was long overdue. Case-in-point: When the Marines were heavily engaged on Peleliu, Black Marines on shore party were finished unloading the supplies onshore and reported to Puller for duty and his response was to the effect, “Black Marines, White Marines, who the Hell cares as long as they’re Marines.” But herein lies the rub concerning Obama’s opening the doors to homosexuals in the military. Let us go back to the day after Truman desegregated the military in a hypothetical. A White Marine and a Black Marine could find common ground in appreciating the beauty of a female of the species and begin to see eye-to-eye however, that doesn’t work with a straight/gay because they are different. Can they find common ground? Sure. But as anyone who has been in the military knows, females are right up there with good chow in the field and adding religion into the mix adds another dimension to the problem!
The policy of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” was working fine and the only reason Obama changed it was to throw a monkey wrench into the gears of the military. To create chaos where there was little or none. To create hate and discontent where there was little or none. As the Commander-in-Chief, he was supposed to enable and support the military not cause it to stumble or the morale to plummet.
Second, consider Obama’s efforts to put women into combat roles. One point remains salient. A woman’s upper body strength is nowhere near the level of a man’s, especially an adrenaline charged man. In hand-to-hand combat, they lose. No matter what Hollywood shows in their bullshit movies. Moreover, for the sake of argument, say we have a male Marine who weighs 190 pounds in his uniform. Add a nine pound rifle, a four pound helmet, a twenty pound Kevlar vest and plate, a few pound for ammo, water, etc., and you have a man weighing in at 235 pounds or so. Imagine him wounded and needing to be dragged to cover. Imagine a woman trying to do that. Imagine them both getting killed because that is what will happen. Not to mention what will happen to a woman taken prisoner by a Third World enemy.
Lastly, the Obama military is being staffed with idiotic yes men/women who spew the bullshit that Obama wants them to. One glance at who this idiot has fired and who he has retained is enough to convince even the staunchest skeptic and even worse the dunderheads that he put in as SecDef…Panetta and then even worse, Hagel! Two complete morons so stupid that they couldn’t tell a bouncing betty from their asses! Not to mention asskissing generals like that Air Force turd who squirm on their bellies to their master merely to keep their jobs! The men that the clown in the White House fired are more honorable than the vermin that Obama anoints and appoints.
This leads to the growing problem of troops enlisting, doing their four or eight, and then bailing out for civilian life. The growing gap between the senior SNCOs and Officers and the junior level troops is a bad thing because the services lose the experienced personnel just when they are getting to the point where they will be Platoon Sergeants, senior Sergeants in the promotion zone to Staff, NCOs capable of running a platoon, taking on more important duties, doing “B” billets, etc. Perhaps the worst result of this exodus is that the lessons learned, usually in combat and at the cost of blood, are lost to the services. A Sergeant who has done multiple tours in Afghanistan and who separates takes his knowledge with him and cannot be replaced by adding another recruit at Parris Island. The Marine Corps has known this since forever but evidently senior leadership and the civilians running this Kakistocracy never knew it.
So the question is WHY does the military hate Obama? Because he is a liar. Because he is without honor. Because he has a yellow streak a mile-wide up his back, even more so than Hanoi John Fonda Kerry. Because the US Military can smell a poltroon faster than BJ Bubba Clinton can jump a fatty or Obama and Sasquatch split on a taxpayer-funded vacay!
HONOR. COURAGE. COMMITTMENT. The troops have it, the Democrats do not.
