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.

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.

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 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.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
