In the US Military; Everything is Readiness, Except actual Readiness

US Defense Watch ^ | November 7, 2021 | Ray Starmann

Oh, the reports just keep filtering in; little bits and pieces of incompetence, bad leadership, cowardice, a myriad of bolos and buffoons; ships running aground, ships on fire, being chased off in the Sea of Oman by the Iranians in Babe Winkelman’s bass boat, submariners and their Marxist wives selling secrets, Marines losing on their own turf last week…

Isn’t wokeness fun? Thanks to the left and cowardly senior leaders, the US armed forces have become the Benny Hill Show with high explosives.

In today’s military, everything is readiness except actual readiness. Readiness defined as training for war every day, aka warfighting, aka focus on military subjects during the training day.

Readiness has taken on a whole new meaning that must be worn like a Young Pioneer’s silk scarf and fit into the Maoist Cultural Revolution engulfing the military and the country like a ten alarm fire.

Political correctness is readiness. Wokeness is readiness. Feminism is readiness. Trans-genderism is readiness. Pan-genderism is readiness. Inclusion is readiness.

In 2015, the Secretary of the Army, John McHugh directed all US Army worldwide commands to “balance lactation support and readiness.”

Never in a million years did I think I’d ever hear the words breastfeeding, lactation and US Army all used in the same sentence.

The G2 (senior intelligence officer) for a US Army division recently wrote on social media that diversity is readiness. How is that possible? According to this Maoist illogic, only by having a correct amount of soldiers with self-proclaimed victim statuses, i.e. women, minorities, gays, trannies, etc., will success be guaranteed in war.


Is there a new formula we’re supposed to calculate that will give us instant diversity and therefore victory on a battlefield? Let’s see for a squad of 10, I would need 4 straight minority women, 1 tranny, 1 homosexual, 1 pan gender, 2 lactating mothers, and 1 combo of any of the above. Therefore, with this ‘diversity’, this incredible inclusion, it will enable a team, a squad, a platoon, a company, a battalion, a brigade, a division, a corps, an army to fight and win on a battlefield. Forget about actual training for war. That’s all passe. That’s all part of the old army that colonizer military comprised of those toxic males.

And, this person is running the intelligence section of a division?

A recent smattering of events from the last month, should make any sane individual conclude that the US military isn’t ready for anything, except losing, and in military parlance, losing means dying, it means America’s youth being sent home in Hefty trash bags because the military’s leadership is comprised of left wing crackpots and moral cowards whose dereliction of duty and conduct unbecoming is so obvious it stands out like a tenfold beacon in the night.

A recent event, I’m calling the ‘Massacre at 29 Palms’ more than illustrates how absolutely eight up the US military is now. Last week, a combined British Royal Marines, Canadian, Dutch and UAE forces virtually annihilated the Marines in Exercise Green Dagger, which is designed to test any Marine force preparing for an overseas deployment.

Apparently, the Marines were so heavily trounced that they had to call for a reset. Good God, 29 Palms is the Marines’ back yard.

It would be one thing if a Marine unit was taken down by another Marine unit, but by a combined allied force is just embarrassing.

I ran into the Dutch Army once in 1992. They were packing up 24 hours into a 7 day exercise after a trouncing. Their soldiers, with long hair and beards looked like a Blue Oyster Cult tribute band. If WW3 had broken out in Europe, the Soviet Third Shock Army would have gone through Holland faster than a bottle of Amstel light through a wooden shoe.

As for the UAE forces; what – four Bedouins, a couple Nissan pick-up trucks and ten camels? A force to be reckoned with.

And, the Royal Marines and the Canadians are woke too. No doubt about it. This could have been called the Woke Bowl. I guess they’re less woke than we are. Senator Josh Hawley, was so outraged at the conduct of the Marines that he told General Mark Milley to ‘stop using the military as a giant social experiment’ and ‘train them to fight.’

Meanwhile, in the Pentagon, General Milley is preparing for a new gig in two weeks as a Beetle Bailey helium balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in Manhattan.

And, the Joint Chiefs, those Merchants of Featherdom, just added a new piece of fruit salad, this one the Woke Service Medal, for outstanding meritorious achievement in helping to destroy the US military as an actual fighting force and turning it into an off-Broadway musical.

Check out Ike’s uniform or any of the Class A’s of yesteryear, only adorned with a CIB, a top row of three ribbons, maybe a pair of jump wings, not the obscene Chilean Junta JROTC outfits so common today among today’s senior leaders.

The mission of the US military is simple – it is to kill people and break things, period. It’s obvious that a majority of the military’s senior leaders, senior defined as those above the rank of 0-5 (lieutenant colonel or commander and above), do not believe that anymore. To them the military is some kind of camouflaged make-believe land, where they can dress up, get paid, toss out a few military terms every day, while they work feverishly to create more chaos by either instigating or following along with every left-wing crackpot idea that comes their way.

In reality land, the only thing the US military is ready for is a cataclysmic ass kicking from the Chinese.

Training for war, aka, actual readiness, means not spending all day on social media to see how many likes you got colonel or general, after you just posted some inane comment about celebrating Lesbian Punjabi Heritage Month or salivating about some Tri Delt sorority girl with a pink bow in her hair who just breezed through Camp Wokeness, aka Ranger School without breaking a sweat.

Funny, how they’re all plump when they graduate, isn’t it?

Hmm… almost like there are no more standards…Shhh….

Every time I see a post with another smiling female graduate of Ranger School, I think about things like Merrill’s Marauders conducting a 1000 mile forced march through the Burmese jungle, or those guys at Pointe du Hoc; that 150 feet vertical climb with one of the greatest armies in history trying to kill you, those Rangers on the mean streets of Mogandishu, outnumbered 10,000 to 1, and people like Rogers and Darby and how wokeness has destroyed everything they built in literally one politically correct swoop of insanity.

How can this wokeness insanity stop? We need the GOP to retake the House and retake the Presidency. We need a real Secretary of Defense who will purge the military of political correctness and s-can many senior leaders. We need a massive naval buildup and a Manhattan type Project to create new technology that will render China’s missile threat inoperable.

We need a lot of stuff and we need it fast.

Major Robert Rogers once wrote, 250 years ago, ‘Don’t forget nothin.’

Well, we’ve forgotten everything. And, if we don’t start remembering, we’re going be speaking Chinese soon.

    Some years ago I wrote an article called: “Our Kinder, Gentler Military: How Social Engineering Lost the Last War for Australia”. It remains unpublished. However it contained the following:
    ‘I quote from a former Brigadier who told me the Defence role now goes something like this: … the ADF mission extends to aspects of national security and encompasses humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR)’
    ‘Let’s play a game called ‘The Warrior Ethos’.
    It is not played on a computer, but in real life, so the blood, guts, smashed bodies and the deaths of some of the participants are real. Your task is to identify those scenarios you would like your tax dollars to pay for in the defence of Australia.
    Scenario 1
    Lt. Charles Pope was placed in command of a picquet post with orders to hold it ‘at all costs’. The post was attacked and several of his platoon were killed. Pope asked headquarters for a resupply of ammunition, but the resupply party could not get through. Pope and his men signed a pledge that they would hold the post alive or would remain in it dead. When their ammunition ran out Pope ordered his men to charge a large enemy force. They did so and were all killed. The body of Pope and his men were found among eighty enemy dead. Pope was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross. Should we value his actions as those of another Spartan Leonidas or despise him for his courage and the deliberate sacrifice of his men when they could have surrendered?’
    ‘Scenario 2
    The transition to the New Army of gender-neutrality, diversity and equality is complete. Our latest deployment is to defeat a new brutal enemy, a foe so ruthless that ISIS murderers fear them. They take no prisoners, mutilate the wounded and dead and respect no laws of ‘civilised’ warfare.
    In an observation post several kilometres forward of the Australian base a section of six soldiers is ordered to keep an eye on an enemy outpost. Since the removal of rank inequalities, everyone is equal and nobody is in charge. As a result of a minor dispute about whose turn it is, nobody is on sentry duty watching the ‘enemy’ (trigger-warning: ‘non-friends’ is the preferred term).
    Suddenly a hundred of the non-friends appear on the hill above the post shrieking ‘Death to the Kuffirs!’ and firing real bullets in their direction. The post calls for help, but the base replies that nobody is willing to leave the camp to come to their aid, but a committee has been formed to workshop the situation. The observation post is on their own in their trench, faces to the enemy. Only one soldier loads his weapon.
    Suddenly, Mustafa leaps from their foxhole waving his arms, throws down his empty weapon and shouts “Alluha Akbar!” Felicity bursts into tears and hugs gender neutral Jane-James (who is mumbling something about the certificate he-she has in ‘Combat Negotiation Skills when in Contact with Non-Friends’. This starts a tiff with Alice (who admits to being female when it suits her) as she points out her qualifications and training in ‘Appeasement Strategies’, ‘Pre-emptive Surrender Tactics’ and ‘Non-Violent Self-Defence’ are better recognized than Jane’s (or James). However, when the dead body of Mustafa plops back into the trench Alice breaks down and starts wailing about being raped and beheaded. Apparently Mustafa belonged to the wrong religious sect.
    Justin, the outer suburban bogan killed 20 non-friends before they were overwhelmed. He was wounded, but survived as four of the others piled on top of him as they were shot, stabbed, macheted, bayoneted and beheaded. When it was safe to do (according the OH&S officer and the embedded unit lawyer) troops from the base came to the outpost and found Justin alive. Five of the soldiers were awarded Medals of Gallantry for their heroism in not using violence, but Justin was successfully prosecuted for murdering twenty non-friends without permission, not trying to negotiate and firing his weapon ‘without respecting the rights’ of people. Damning testimony was provided by several non-friends now resident in Australia as long-term clients of CentreLink. Justin is currently serving 40-years in Goulburn Supermax where he has converted to Islam as they are now his only companions.
    One of the above scenarios is fictional, but which one is a puzzle for you to solve. Give it just a little more time as I note the ADF is considering evidence of 55 instances of potential ‘war crimes’ our combat troops may have committed in Afghanistan. The Taliban have been eager witnesses. I doubt that any non-combat desk warriors are threatened by this inane (or is it ‘insane’) travesty.
    It has become a curiously difficult question to answer these days about whether or not senior officers are expected to protect or prosecute the soldiers afflicted by being under their command. After all, everyone awarded a bravery medal has risked their life, which clearly means they have must have contravened just about every OH&S, snowflake safe space rule there is. Surely it is obvious that every Military Cross winner (including more than one Australian Governor-General) should be prosecuted for breaching safety regulations?’
