[April 13, 2018] Army Vet takes a hard look at American GENERALS and ADMIRALS and comes away believing they are not the leaders they should be.
U.S. military Generals aren’t leaders anymore. That also includes admirals from the Navy and Coast Guard; which are much worse! I’ll stick to the Army Generals for the moment and tell you (I don’t care if you believe me or not) that all they have become since the Korean War are smooth-talking bureaucrats and caretakers. Yep, that includes the more famous ones you’ve heard of like David Petraeus, George W. Casey, and Lloyd Austin. I say this because I grew up a soldier fighting wars; in those battles that were a knockdown drag-out fight where you see the eyes of the enemy and the fierceness of his determination to kill you without remorse or even a second thought. That experience gives me the gut job of telling you truth about our generals today.
What to do about it is not my concern. That’s your job. I say this because I am still out there kicking some ass in the jungles of South America. During my time with the Israeli and American armies, I learned a lot about people and a lot of about war. You cannot pussyfoot around with the preparation and conduct of war on any level; tactical or strategic. Pussy generals who fall into the trap of being “yes men” to the president are the classic wimp at the end of the city block that we kicked in the nuts when we were kids … and liked it. Did we feel shame for whacking a kid that was weak or effeminate? Hell no. That’s how we learned to fight like banshees and became real men for it. You need real men to protect the sheep that are so many of the American people have become.
So what’s causing the creation of so many American army generals that are incapable of really leading us in a classic no-holds-barred war? Simple, we don’t start training men to be tough street fighters or group leaders when they were kids and we don’t train them as junior officers. Today’s military officers have to be concerned about getting their career ruined by some limp-wristed, no-good-for-nothing spouse of a transgender “man” when a general didn’t kiss their feet, rather than spending time shooting weapons and learning how to lead from the front. Leadership is dying in the military. Worse, it’s a lost art that tragically slowly melted away in front of our eyes while social experimentation in the military ranks became a favorite play toy of the U.S. congress.
I could talk and write on this subject all day long but I have more important things to do. I’m packing my bags for another trip to South America so I can go kick communists out of an unnamed country. As you know, I just returned from Columbia where we did some whoop-ass on a bunch of socialist Venezuelan army troops who were escorting drugs and slaves across borders. Yep, drugs and slaves. I doubt you read about that in our communist newspapers. Am I surprised … nope.
