Sad

I was going to write a post about the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s body language throughout the whole congressional hearing on Syria, but someone beat me to it, here:

ummm. Yeah…..

As I sat and watched, it was obvious that General Dempsey was not happy while listening to Sec State Kerry argue his hypocritical stance. When all government is now run by people who were never in the military, were never in a playground fight, have never played a serious sport, and don’t drink beer, expect this. And even those whom were in the military are people like Kerry…swift-boating America.

    Magus,

    Step outside our military experience and evaluate our own military leadership by the yardstick of History, even our own. It’s abysmal. We are target practice for freebies by untermenschen and jailbait for hustling lawyers in uniform and out looking to notch their briefcases with our “warcrimes.”

    Gen Dempsey is a sad sack in a ice cream parlour sack suit. This could be said of most of our Generals the last 12 years, and most of our field grade officers. Their primary responsiblity under the circumstances is the protection of their troops, or sociopathically preservation of our Human Capital. Which is indeed our most valuable asset, and limited.

    Instead anyone who wants to get to us CAN. Apparently if we want leadership who are our friends we should commission and promote Dogs. A nobler animal certainly than certain primates.

    Our Senior Enlisted Advisors – The SMADGE class – when not being the most ridiculous and infuriating class of martinets in history with the retard glow-belts and 670-1 Battlefield are utterly useless otherwise in the primary function and only justification of protecting the troops from Officers idiocy. They’re worse . What usually happens with our senior enlisted leadership is the Officers rebuke THEM for abuse.

    We came to this pass of course by the march of Academia through our leadership. Most of the controls upon these wretches are those of the campus staff. Should they attempt to rise above it then the mere existence of the Lawyers seems to check all but a few hardy souls.

    This Sir is “Generals” and leadership we have, rather than anything we’d dare take against a real enemy. Or as it happens the great preening boy toy fool of a Secretary of State.

    Who has the next yacht, paid for by Bandar, already picked out.

    Yes, our generals are politicians. I was thinking of writing a post on an assessment I’ve made: That it seems the competency of our general officers peaked rather quickly here in America. That perhaps, through objective reasoning (and it would take an entire book to come close to proving this hypothesis), it could be shown that our civil war generals were far better war fighters than the generals of today. Far better.

    It’s Academic.

    No, that’s the problem.
