Sex and the Military

I said it in another post last Friday the repeal of DADT, women in front line combat units, and the immigration "reform" bill are all directed at destroying the previous military culture. The goal is to create a culture where the traditional pools of recruits no longer join and those already in leave as soon as possible. The new military combat units will be made up of people who are part of identity groups, who self identify as something other than "American" first, it Mexican, Cuban, woman, or homosexual. The new military will not hesitate to act against Americans as they have no loyalty or can easily be manipulated by fabircated offenses against their identity groups. As has been demonstrated here, as soon as one member starts shooting they will all start shooting without even knowing who, what, or why they are shooting at. Look at Boston, no police ever said, "Whoa guys we are WAY out on a limb here violating these people's 4th amendment rights!" Instead it was pound on the door, shove an M4 or M-16 in the resident's face and drag them and all occupants into the street to be frisked and search the house. If you think the police and military will be on your side, you're in for a rude awakening.

Manhunts are different from normal search warrant situations. You had an active shooter on the run, boxed in in a small perimeter. While the cops showed little ability to organize that manhunt and were unable to even keep track of which blocks and houses they'd check and make a systematic search, they would have been within their rights to do that, and their haphazard but intensive search did serve to drive the fox into a hole and he was then spotted and captured.

Oh poor baby! [think violins in the background]. The military is adjusting to the new reality in which it exists. Old thinking has to go. We are no longer fighting WWII style wars; were are digital, eye-in-the-sky and drone laden or didn't you get the memo?
Women and "others" make up at least 40% of the military at present. If all of these folks decided to leave, just who would take their place? Ivy-leaguers? Wall street wizards? The sons or daughters of the oil barons or IT gurus? I doubt it. These folks didn't sign up for Iraq or Afghanistan and I doubt they will sign up for anything in the future. Romey and his boys surely didn't and neither did Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice or the Bushies. So I ask, just who is going to fight America's wars and why should those who choose to serve be subjected to violent actions by others in the military and then receive justice in the process?

So who else do you normally post as?

And those 40% don't fight on the front line as infantry or armor. The recent proclaimation from the Pentagon changed that. You're also a moron if you believe that wars between nation states is finished. China? Russia? Hello? You'll still need boots on the ground.

And to the one below. No he was not "boxed in" he was outside the perimiter and was found only after a private citizen went out to check his own property. The Carjacking victim and that guy did more to apprehend that scumbag than 10k police did.

Thank you for reminding us how lefties think (or whatever stand with them for thinking).
On the other hand, I believe all posters here already know that, so your post is just a noise.

Also, consider the treatment Christians and conservatives in the military are getting.

That is what I meant when I said, "...create a culture where the traditional pools of recruits no longer join and those already in leave as soon as possible." People who self identify with being Conservative/Christian are typically patriotic and form the bulk of the pool of people that the military recruits from.

I also find it ironic to see so many people saying much of what I said last Friday, yet I came under attack by "supposed" former military for saying it. I even see some of those who attacked me chiming in today with their $.02 and aren't attacking anyone. Careful folks, there are scorpions among us.
