The craven retreat of the generals
Pruden and Politics, by Wesley Pruden

Original Article

Posted By:truthfetish, 1/25/2013 6:53:16 AM

Wars are won despite the generals. Every historian knows that. Combat is no place for a woman. Every grunt knows that. So do most women. Only generals are confused. The Joint Chiefs of Staff have finally succumbed to the pressure of the ladies who can’t imagine ever getting close to a gun, registered or otherwise, but who think it would be nifty if some of the cannon fodder for America’s wars could be “service members” of the female persuasion. This would make the ladies on the sidelines feel brave and good about themselves.

Social experiments have no place in combat operations. Lives depend on ability not desire.

Sounds like the military is becoming politicized.

There is something just wrong about the whole notion. The role of men as provider and protector is diminished by taking their jobs and guns away and sending the women into combat.

The one thing all these social experiments have in common is that they completly neglect the fact that nature created physical differences between the male and females of all species. Men are physically stronger and more aggressive than women. Saying they are the same and treating them the same does not make them the same. Having women billited with men is a recipe for disaster. And at the risk of being accused of being sexist, once a month women tend to become a bit disfunctional and irrational. Do we really want them walking around with loaded weapons at that time?

I´ve got to say that when the head of your military looks like a drunken derelict that someone fished out of the gutter, showered and put a uniform on, it does not inspire confidence in me for dempsey. And his constant parroting of lines fed to him is awfully reminiscent of another man in an important job with no ability to execute the duties of that job.

Also, keep in mind the thoughts going through a spouses head while their mate is in a foxhole with someone else.

The real question is not CAN women fulfill combat responsibilities, but SHOULD they? Mantras and memes like "gender neutral" involve unexamined a priori beliefs. Gender neutrality is far from self-evident. Indeed, it is quite a stretch. The stretch is an ideological one. Women in combat might be considered the reductio ad absurdum of equal opportunity employment policy. It is by no means absurd to proponents. They are indignant that anyone would dare to express doubt about it.

Leftists and Democrats claim Republicans and conservatives have swerved drastically to the Right and are extremists. This is either a lie or a false perception caused by the Left´s own radicalism. Every single cause dear to Leftists is novel and against the American grain. Sending women into combat is just the latest of many radical innovations that previous generations of Americans would have thought foolish, wicked, or insane.

This has nothing to do with the military. Why hasn´t anyone questioned the timing of the announcement. Just when Obama is taking a lot of hits from both the right and the left about his all white male cabinet appointments he suddenly announces allowing women into combat roles. End of his women problems - until women start coming home in body bags that is.

"The real question is not CAN women fulfill combat responsibilities, but SHOULD they? " Spot on #8. And those concerned about the whole fraternization issue should take note of all the "firings" of commanding officers now running rampant through the services. Most of these are sex related. Putting women aboard ships has created chaos, and is, predictably, leading to pregnancies, sexual assaults, and fraternization problems. Time to call off the social experiments and return the military to its traditional role - getting dirty and killing bad people - all under very strenuous conditions.

And it is stated that the women will have to meet the current physical standards and training. Does anyone really believe that? Either the standards will be modified for women or the standards as a whole will be softened if the desired percentage of female representation isn´t met. As Rush is so fond of saying, "Don´t doubt me."

While the "war on women" was just a campaign slogan, the real war is against masculinity and the notion that males have unique and valuable attributes. We have feminized everything.

Now I see that Marco Rubio supports this nonsense. And I had thought I might support him. No more. We are really going to need a president who´s got a pair.

In the meantime, I suggest we let the feminists enjoy the fruits of their victory: draft the Sandra Fluke´s of this world and let them start earning their free condoms.

You will notice there has been a rather LARGE downsizing of senior military officers in the recent past. Panetta is a rat wonk with about ZERO time in uniform. He is pushing B-Ho´s agenda and any senior military official who supports women in combat should be fired! Women in the US Military has been an unqualified success. Women in front line combat units is unneeded, uncalled for, and wrong.....

This goes to prove that Leon Panetta is nothing more than a huge craven coward to have waited until he is leaving to have dumped this garbage on this country. Go back and hide under your rock Leon. And think about the future horrors you have inflicted on my Country. You are truly evil.

In the past I would have been extremely upset by this insanity. Today, I can´t understand why any traditional, masculine American male would even consider enlisting in the military. No leaders, politicization, PC, Affirmative Action, and rules of engagement to aid your worst enemies.

Generals take their orders from those elected by the American people! Does it anyone want to change the system? Panneta is and has always been a political hack but he is getting guidance from Obama. We have the government we deserve! Undo the mess in 2014!

This current crop of generals have clearly become yes men for Obama and his liberal crew. I guess you can justify that by saying that the a majority of the Americans, who have no experience in the military, are the people who actually elected Obama, who certainly has no respect for the experience of the generals and the traditions of the military, and that what we are experiencing is just a normal result of a very consequential election. But for young heterosexual males maybe the best thing to keep from being disappointed, and maybe from being killed for nothing, is to stay out from the military for at least the next four years.

I´ve seen this before. A Muslim terrorist slays a non-Muslim citizen in the West, and representatives of the Muslim community rush to dissociate themselves and their faith from the horror. After British soldier Lee Rigby was hacked to death last week in Woolwich in south London, Julie Siddiqi, representing the Islamic Society of Britain, quickly stepped before the microphones to attest that all good Muslims were "sickened" by the attack, "just like everyone else." This happens every time. Muslim men wearing suits and ties, or women wearing stylish headscarves,

A Philadelphia doctor was found guilty Monday of murdering three babies born alive in an abortion clinic, Fox News confirms. He was acquitted in the fourth baby´s death, and found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the overdose death of an adult patient. Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 72, was convicted of first-degree murder and could face execution in the deaths of three babies who authorities say were delivered alive and then killed with scissors at his grimy clinic, in a case that became a flashpoint in the nation's debate over abortion. Gosnell was cleared in the death of a fourth baby,

Reports from inside the secretive famine-hit pariah state, North Korea, claim a man has been executed after murdering his two children for food. The grim suggestion that North Koreans are turning to cannibalism were reported by the Asia Press, and published in the Sunday Times. They claim a ´hidden famine´ in the farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae has killed 10,000 people, and there are fears that cannibalism is spreading throughout the country.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
