Here we go again.
With all the filth being thrown about during what promises to be the dirtiest (and most pivotal) Presidential campaign in U.S. history, I’ve been trying to distance myself from all of it. I need a break. I can hardly bear to listen to the news. Everything in America is wrecked, as Michael Savage has said. So, I’m sort of hiding and watching for a while, to gather my strength - what little I have left. I’m getting old and tired.
However… My friend, Diana West, dug up a video of USMC General John Allen, the supreme commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, giving a speech to his troops that is sickening beyond imagination. So, in a rage at the excrement I saw and heard in this video, I’m adding my two cents worth, despite my fatigue. Allen addressed soldiers who had just suffered the killing of two brothers in arms by a man dressed in the uniform of an Afghanistan soldier. Scores of Americans have been killed in similar attacks by these so-called allies of which Allen spoke with such affection and emotion.
The murders are the legacy of the delusional Counter-Insurgency doctrine (COIN), authored by David Petraeus. George Patton must surely be turning over in his grave. Diana’s post demands that Allen be fired. I agree with her. Further, I think he should be Court Martialed and sent to Leavenworth Prison for the rest of his life. Here’s the link to the post:
In closing, Diana writes:
For these generals, ideology uber alles. That’s why they hide its flaws when they emerge in the reality of the battlefield. They excuse its unworkable fallacies and especially the resulting murders of our men as being all our own fault — for defending ourselves under attack, for objecting to pederasty, for drinking water during Ramadan, for a near-zero share of civilian casualties (vs. the Taiban), for spitting toward Mecca, for “mishandling” “the holy Qu’ran,” for being Christian or Jewish, for drinking tea, for exercising, for being alive. Thus, we have come to expect our military leaders to lie, apologize, crawl, and become dhimmis (the process described as it afflicts the larger culture in The Death of the Grown-Up).
The response to all of this decay and betrayal? Silence. Silence in the media, silence in the midst of a hot presidential race, silence everywhere there is only white noise.
It is the silence of the dhimmi.
And U.S.M.C. General John Allen is full of shit.
