Our military is becoming a little less of a fighting machine and a little more of a PC social work enterprise under this administration. The administration is easing the changes into every fiber of its being.
Our troops not only have to put their lives in danger in war zones under rules of engagement that require them to be fired on before they can react, but they now have to fast when they are in Muslim countries.
The Weekly Standard reports that “U.S. Air Forces Central Command Public Affairs, Brig. Gen. John Quintas, 380th Air Expeditionary Wing commander in Southwest Asia, said that the U.S. is “committed to the concepts of tolerance, freedom and diversity.” But he added that soldiers should “become more informed and appreciative of the traditions and htheistory of the people in this region of the world… [R]emember we are guests here and that the host nation is our shoulder-to-shoulder, brothers and sisters in arms, risking their lives for our common cause to defeat terrorism.”
Military commanders are also given Ramadan sensitivity training.
It doesn’t seem like the best idea. In Muslim countries, Christians have to pay a jizya tax. This PC-ism seems too similar to a subservient, inferior role for the U.S. as opposed to showing respect.
There is no such sensitivity for Christians like Monifa Sterling who wouldn’t remove a bible verse from her computer. She lost her job over it.
Only last month, the U.S. embassy in Indonesia celebrated Independence Day on June 4th instead of July. They not only moved the holiday, our most important patriotic day, they called it Green Independence Day, completely changing the meaning.
We don’t have enough ships of our own now partly due to sequestration and partly due to the extraordinary expenses of “green energy”, so we are looking to deploy Marines from foreign ships. They want to be able to respond quickly in the event of an emergency though with this president, the only emergencies are those connected to making us into socialists domestically.
The government that wants to allow the persecution of Christians also wants to make extraordinary accommodations for the religious preferences of more exotic religions. The U.S. military eased uniform requirements to allow turbans, beards, piercings, tattoos et cetera for religious purposes so all can serve.
We all want this good man pictured below to be able to serve but it can’t be at the expense of discipline and it can’t be done to change the military culture.
The gay flag is allowed to fly.
Crosses are banned from chapels since 2011.
Foreigners can now serve, efforts to recruit into the service reach questionable sectors, and we have gang members infiltrating the Army. Many gang members have infiltrated every branch of the military.
Did you know we are bringing foreigners into the country to be trained? An Iraqi General was killed after the F-16 he was flying on a night training mission crashed in southeastern Arizona.
CNN reported that the 162nd Wing, headquartered in Tucson, specializes in the training of international F-16 Fighting Falcon aircrews.
There have been reports of foreign troops in other states. The president has promoted exchange programs in which Russians and military from other countries come here for training but we generally don’t go there.
Americans have always been able to count on the military and the police to protect us from an out-of-control government but if both are intrinsically changed, that won’t necessarily be the case.
This administration does not hold Christians in high regard, they do believe in the majority accommodating the tiny minority, they don’t understand discipline, and they are fundamentally transforming the military.
This entire approach goes along with the administration’s hatred and distrust of the military and our influence abroad, which he wants to be erased.
The objective has always been to move America away from a nation built on American Exceptionalism, individual liberty and economic freedom and toward a government welfare and dependency state with no visible military presence in the world. Socialism, communism, statism, leftism — call it what you will – the results will be the same.
Revolutionary wealth redistribution, radical race and class warfare, socialized medicine, the atomization of American culture, divisive identity politics, the war on success, the loss of our Triple A credit rating, the retrenchment of U.S. power abroad, the gutting of our military, the erosion of our international credibility are all being done deliberately and with great success.
