Quote of the Day

“Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse,”


General George Casey

Who was worried that diversity might become a casualty of the Fort Hood shooting.

Not worried, of course, about Muslim terrorists, or the deaths of more than a dozen American soldiers.

    ‘Diversity’? In an Army? No no no that’s not how it works. You train recruits to act as part of the team, follow orders, display initiative and react the same way to threats. As a 30 year veteran I know this. Diversity? You can be as diverse as you like on your own time but for the term of your enlistment you don’t have any ‘own time’. The Army owns your ass and you get leave to be ‘diverse’ when & if.

    It’s an Army FFS, not some pansy encounter group.

    Diversity in the military comes from way too many politicians who have never been in a combat situation or even been in a, ‘push come to shove’ situation. Somehow they equate the military with the Boy Scouts and singing and hiking and camping out and think women should enjoy the outing…

    And now the uniform services are conducting mandatory training for the troops on creating safe spaces for transgenders in the forces. No, I am not making that up. I recall that, at an early campaign rally, Trump said that a lot of the brass had to go. I look forward to his replacing the current crop of brass-hat jackwagons — the ones that worry about diversity and check the footnotes to the rules of engagement before firing a shot — with real soldiers.
