HUH? Obama Army Handbook Blames US Soldiers For Being Killed by Taliban, Says Not to Talk About Women’s Rights, Gays or Oppression
I’m not sure why we ever went into Afghanistan. It certainly wasn’t to win a war, since you don’t win wars by building roads and giving candy to those who murder you. And President Bush’s idea of “freedom” and “free elections” for Muslims was warped from Day One, as I said from Day One. Now, Barack Obama is engaging in an outrage that is much worse (though a continuation of the same politically correct Muslim ass-kissing that Bush yoked on our troops). Our soldiers in Afghanistan are still getting murdered and blown up regularly by Muslims and to add extreme insult to injury, there’s this, below. As you read this, keep in mind that this document says that U.S. soldiers training these murderous Afghans to be police have about 200 times the chance of being murdered as a cop on duty in the United States. 200 TIMES! What does that say about these Afghans, other than what we already know: they are savages without any shred of humanity.
Obama’s Extreme Political Correctness & Appeasement of Islam Ties American Soldiers’ Hands Behind Their Backs, Costs Thousands of Their Lives
American soldiers should brace for a “social-cultural shock” when meeting Afghan soldiers and avoid potentially fatal confrontations by steering clear of subjects including women’s rights, religion and Taliban misdeeds, according to a controversial draft of a military handbook being prepared for troops heading to the region.
The proposed Army handbook suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture, not Taliban infiltration, has helped drive the recent spike in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces.
“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,” according to the draft handbook prepared by Army researchers.
The 75-page manual, reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, is part of a continuing effort by the U.S. military to combat a rise in attacks by Afghan security forces aimed at coalition troops.
But it has drawn criticism from U.S. Marine Gen. John Allen, the top military commander in Afghanistan, who aides said hasn’t—and wouldn’t—endorse the manual as written. Gen. Allen also rejected a proposed foreword that Army officials drafted in his name. . . .
The proposed handbook embraces a hotly debated theory that American cultural ignorance has sparked many so-called insider attacks—more than three dozen of which have claimed the lives of some 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year. [DS: Emphasis added.] . . .Afghan leaders say Taliban infiltrators are responsible for most insider attacks. U.S. officials say the attacks are largely rooted in personal feuds between Afghan and coalition troops, though not necessarily the result of cultural insensitivity.
HUH???? Who are they kidding? American soldiers are killed by Afghan Muslims because they hate us. It’s that simple. There is nothing about “cultural ignorance” involved. And here’s a tip: we understand their “culture” quite well (and, truth be told, a cult of savagery is hardly a “culture”). Here’s their “culture”: they are intolerant. They hate fellow Muslims. They especially hate non-Muslims. They hate Christians. They hate Jews. And they savagely kill them every chance that they get. You don’t need to be “culturally sensitive” to another people to expect them not to murder you. If you do expect that and expect that you will be killed because you merely express yourself, it’s a stark hint that you are facing a culture of murder and death, and you should GET. THE. HELL. OUT. Not give them billions in aid and expend more American men’s lives to help them. This draft Army handbook should be called, “The Uber-Dhimmi Handbook.”
Last year, the U.S.-led coalition rejected an internal military study that concluded that cultural insensitivity was in part to blame for insider killings, which it called a growing threat that represented “a severe and rapidly metastasizing malignancy” for the coalition in Afghanistan.
The study was reported last year by The Wall Street Journal. The U.S. military at the time said the study was flawed by “unprofessional rhetoric and sensationalism.”
The 2011 report—”A Crisis of Trust and Cultural Incompatibility”—is now a centerpiece of the draft handbook’s advice to soldiers heading to Afghanistan, and it is listed under the draft’s references and recommended reading. The report’s findings also informed the current manual for troops in Afghanistan, which was released in February, according to Gen. Perkins.
U.S. Army officials didn’t make the current version of the manual available for review.
The Army officer who headed up the 2011 study, Maj. Jeffrey Bordin, now is serving as the Army center’s liaison to Gen. Allen’s coalition headquarters in Kabul.
Why the heck is General Allen keeping this major a-hole in his employ????
The draft handbook uses Maj. Bordin’s conclusions to psychologically prepare troops for serving in Afghanistan. A summary includes views of some U.S. soldiers that Afghan forces engage in thievery, are “gutless in combat,” are “basically stupid,” “profoundly dishonest,” and engage 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 towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”
Um, is there a single conclusion by U.S. soldiers about the Afghans, listed above, that is false? In fact, the conclusions are spot on. And the conclusions are THE REAL reasons why the Afghans have murdered so many of our soldiers with whom they are supposed to be working.
Hmmm . . . Barack Obama and the U.S. Armed Forces can push Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and gay marriage down our throats, but those same troops that have to live with that aren’t allowed to mention it around Afghans?
Are we really trying to teach these savages about democracy and human rights? Hell no. This draft Army handbook makes that clear in spades. It also begs the question: if we are the bad guys and our mention of women and gays is a good excuse for the murder of our soldiers by these Afghans, how are they any different than the Taliban?
Answer: they’re no different. And we need to get out of Afghanistan. NOW.
Here is an excerpt from the draft Army handbook by Major (a-hole) Jeffrey Bordin:
Excerpts: ‘Do Not Discuss Religion’
Below, read excerpts from “Insider Threats – Afghanistan: Observations, Insights, and Lessons,” a draft handbook prepared for U.S. and coalition forces serving in Afghanistan:
Green-on-blue incidents provoke a crisis of confidence and trust among [coalition forces] working with [Afghan troops]. As a means of illuminating this insider threat, those [coalition] personnel working on Security Force Assistance Teams during 2012 that live alongside and mentor [Afghan security forces] have about 200 times the risk of being murdered by an [Afghan security force] member than a U.S. police officer has of being murdered in the line of duty by a perpetrator.
* * *
Understand that they may have poor conflict resolution skills and that insults cause irrational escalation of force.
Do not discuss religion
* * *
Cultural Awareness . . . .
Etiquette Violations Best Avoided by [coalition forces] Taboo conversation topics include:
Anything related to Islam
Mention of any other religion and/or spirituality
Debating the war
Making derogatory comments about the Taliban
Advocating women’s rights and equality
Directing any criticism towards Afghans
Mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct
Um, if they can’t making any criticism of the Taliban, then that means these Afghans we are working with and “training” are, in fact, supporters of the Taliban.
So, again, WHY. ARE. WE. THERE? Let’s get outta there . . . so we can get back to the business of pandering to our own domestic Muslims and illegal aliens (the two of which are not mutually exclusive).
Our soldiers have been sent to live among the Islamic Children of the Corn and we’ve tied their hands behind their backs, willing them to be murdered. Long past time to leave this G-d-forsaken hellhole. Putting out political correctness and appeasement handbooks in the face of thousands of murders of Americans is beyond disgusting.
