What Is Being Done To Our Military

December 13, 2012

A proposed new handbook for Americans serving in Afghanistan warns them not to speak ill about the Taliban, advocate women’s rights or criticize pedophilia, and the general in charge is not happy with it.

The draft of the newest Army handbook seems to suggest that ignorance of Afghan culture is to blame for deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces, according to The Wall Street Journal, which got a peek at the 75-page document. But its message of walking on eggshells around the locals is not going over well with U.S. Marine Gen. John Allen, the top military commander in Afghanistan.

"Gen. Allen did not author, nor does he intend to provide, a foreword," said Col. Tom Collins, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan. "He does not approve of its contents."

More than three dozen attacks by Afghan soldiers have claimed the lives of some 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year. The insider attacks could jeopardize plans to transfer full security control to Afghan forces in 2014.

"He does not approve of its contents."

But a claim by their own government that they’re to blame is not likely to buoy the spirits of Americans risking their lives to serve.

"Many of the confrontations occur because of [coalition] ignorance of, or lack of empathy for, Muslim and/or Afghan cultural norms, resulting in a violent reaction from the [Afghan security force] member," the Journal quotes the draft handbook as saying.

The version reviewed by the Journal is still subject to revisions, Lt. Gen. David Perkins, commander of the Army's Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., told the Journal.

The study, based on interviews with 600 members of the Afghan security forces and 200 American soldiers, painted a grim portrait of opposing cultures with simmering disdain for their counterparts.

The draft handbook includes a summary stating that some U.S. soldiers consider Afghan forces to be “basically stupid” thieves, "gutless in combat," "profoundly dishonest" and engaged in "treasonous collusion and alliances with enemy forces."

The draft handbook offers a list of "taboo conversation topics" that soldiers should avoid, including "making derogatory comments about the Taliban," "advocating women's rights," "any criticism of pedophilia," "directing any criticism toward Afghans," "mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct" or "anything related to Islam," according to the Journal

muslims don't have a God. They only have rules to lie, cheat, steal, rape, enslave and murder by. Their "god" is only a propped up propaganda clit-dream.

Of the cunt-cutting off kind.

Yes, Michael; wouldn't ol' LBJ be so proud? It's ironic; my mother and I were having a discussion in the car on the way home from my doctor visit, and neither one of us could remember a Democratic President in well over a century who WASN'T despicable and had done something to hurt this country. Not to mention not one of them knew what it was to have actually done an honest day's work, and the vast majority of them had (and have) pretty shady family trees. Except maybe for Harry Truman.

Another fight and die until the One World Government has made all that it can and wants people to "love" it when it announces "we won" and there's peace now, so bugger out back to your filthy little houses until called again. And don't expect any help or medicine from YOUR government.

Our military is being manipulated by a president who is sympathetic with the muslims to arm our enemies and terrorists while risking their lives to help ungrateful people by fighting an unwinnable war sabotaged by our own.

The military guy should burn the book like they did the Koran. Screw the Muslims. It's time we take control. You can't force us what to think or say.
