Marine General: Standards Are Going to Be Lowered

I wrote in December about how the Marines are actively pushing back against the political forces that are trying to get them to lower their standards. But they weren’t yet (as far as I know) speaking out against it. Now, that seems to have changed. According to CNS News: “General Warns: Military Will Face ‘Great Pressure’ to Lower Standards for Women in Combat to Please ‘Agenda-Driven’ in D.C.” Marine Gen. John Kelly, commander of the U.S. Southern Command, said at a Pentagon press briefing Read more […]

Troops Killed and Wounded but We Mustn’t Call it “Combat”

Oh, the illusions we must foster when a Nobel Peace Prize winner has to pretend to have withdrawn troops from Afghanistan. CNS News reports: A U.S. Special Operations service member was killed and two others were injured after coming under enemy fire in Afghanistan’s Helmand province Tuesday, but asked whether this meant U.S. troops were engaged in combat, a Pentagon spokesman said repeatedly that they were there in their mandated mission to “train, advise, assist” Afghan forces. Defense Read more […]

Lawsuit Claims Graveyard Cross is a Microaggression

In  our culture the story of Jesus dying on the cross has become representative of self-sacrifice. Lots of people don’t believe in Jesus’ deity, his resurrection, or the power of his death to have any role in God’s forgiving sins. But they do see his death as a willing martyrdom. Lots of Christians have wanted to be buried, and have buried fellow Christians, in places with the symbol of the cross. Some of these Christians have fought and died defending the United States. These people have been Read more […]

Iraqi Soldier Escapes ISIS Prison, Calls Out Obama

Iraqi Master Sergeant Karam Saad, in an interview with the Independent Journal, discussed how he was taken prisoner in 2014 by ISIS. While in Mosul shortly after its capture, Saad was caught by ISIS forces. Matching his name to a list of Iraqi military personnel, the ISIS soldiers took him to a prison facility, where Saad was held for three days. During his time there, Saad said, he was tortured with electric wires and bags full of water tied around his neck. He also witnessed how ISIS treated Read more […]

Alleged Belgium Security Orgy Tells Us Something about Security

According to the New York Times, “Brussels Police Investigate Reports of Police Orgy Amid Terror Alert.” In the six weeks since the Paris terrorist attacks, law enforcement agencies in Brussels, where most of the attackers lived or had ties, have been denounced as slow, unresponsive, disorganized and even incompetent. To this list of woes, another was added on Wednesday: Officials are investigating accounts of an alcohol-fueled “orgy” at a police station one night last month while Brussels, Read more […]

Marines Fight Back against America’s Enemy: the PC Command

People often dismiss the military as a place where people don’t think for themselves, but blindly shut up and follow orders. The Marines are showing that isn’t true–at least not for them. The Obama Administration wishes it were true. The Washington Times reports, “Marine Corps study finds few women in combat in other nations’ militaries.” The most important aspect of this story is not what the Marines found, but the fact that instead of accepting Feminist dogma, they bothered to investigate Read more […]

Women in Combat: the Draft

If you’re wondering where the push for women in combat is going in this country, Military.com tells  what the Army Secretary thinks: “Women Will Likely Have to Register for the Draft, Army Secretary Says.” Women will eventually have to register for the draft if “true and pure equality” is to be realized in the U.S. military, Army Secretary John McHugh said Monday. “If your objective is true and pure equality then you have to look at all aspects” of the roles of women in the military, McHugh said, Read more […]

Obama Piles on as Tensions Build With Russia

Leave it to President Obama to say the wrong thing at the wrong moment. Following Turkey’s shooting down of a Russian plane on its way to attack ISIS in Syria, Obama said Tuesday at a press conference with French President Hollande that “Turkey like every country has a right to defend its territory and air space.” He then added, “I think it is very important for us to right now make sure that both the Russians and the Turks are talking to each other and find out exactly what happened, and take Read more […]

U.S. Jet Plane Shot Down People Fleeing Doctors Without Borders Hospital

Not only was Doctors Without Borders bombed by U.S. Forces, but those trying to escape were shot from a jet plane. While the New York Times and CNN both tried to misdirect readers from who was guilty of bombing a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghanistan, NBCNews is doing a better job. In fact they have reported that the U.S. did more than just bomb the hospital: “U.S. Plane Shot Victims Fleeing Doctors Without Borders Hospital: Charity.” A U.S. warplane shot people trying to flee a Read more […]

Pentagon Risks Hot War with Russia over Syria

They’re sending fighter jets to “combat ISIS” that could only be used to start a hot war with Russian aircraft. Even I thought our ruling sociopaths were not this maniacally suicidal. The Daily Beast reports: “U.S. Brings Dogfighters to Counter Russians Over Syria.” The U.S. Air Force is deploying to Turkey up to a dozen jet fighters specializing in air-to-air combat—apparently to help protect other U.S. and allied jets from Russia’s own warplanes flying over Syria. Officially, the deployment Read more […]

Ground Forces in Syria Sent by Imperial President

Obama Is Sending Ground Forces but Will He Get Congressional Authorization? The War Powers Act says the President has sixty days to get Congress’ approval from the time he begins hostilities. President Obama began bombing ISIS last year without Congressional action and no one seemed to care. Now that the President wants to send ground troops that may be about to change. According to Jason Ditz at AntiWar.com: There’ve been a few pushes for Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) Read more […]

Man-on-Man Rape in the Military Shockingly Underreported

The numbers of those victimized by man-on-man rape is fifteen times higher than reported. Last year Bob Allen wrote a story of a man raped by three other men. What made this more than a tragic local crime story is that perpetrators and victim alike wore the uniform of the U.S. military. But it now looks like more male-male rapes are taking place in the military than anyone suspected. The Washington Times reports: Far more military men are being raped by other men than is reported by the Pentagon Read more […]
