Between The Lines: US Army Prepping for Permanant War
Good Monday Morning, and welcome to my first official edition of "Between The Lines" which is where I take a look at the propaganda coming out of the US Military and determine what the most likely orders they've been given are.
First out of the chute, a little human interest story about Hats:
Yes, there are soldiers upset because the new permanent war college, also known as the "Military Adviser Training Academy" is getting special hats, that the "Elite" forces don't feel that they've earned. Security Forces Assistance Brigades... this is what they are calling the new units the Army is prepping. Which means that it sounds like we're going to be doing a lot more "Advising" missions soon, and apparently we expect to be doing it openly and as the PRIMARY training of our soldiers. So, whoever had Middle East on the betting pool, it's looking good for you, keep your eyes on it.
So, moving along, we should probably focus on the tragic difficulties faced by our troops in the field.
Well, I don't know about you, but I don't normally see the MSM being quite so frank about how many bases are at present in Africa. I also love how "Officially" almost all the countries have less than 50 troops, Which adds up to 6,000 soldiers. Wait a second, that can't be right... 800 in Niger, which leaves 5,200... in ten Official countries... which leaves 4,700 who apparently don't officially exist. Assuming that ANY of these numbers are accurate is idiotic, of course, but I find it funny that the propaganda can't even be consistent in THE SAME STORY.
And this one strikes home hard for me. If I've ever seen an order that needed to be ignored, this would be it. I find it quite sad that the Media has completely ignored the fact that a soldier DID in fact ignore his orders on moral principle.
Of course the media won't address this one. Mainly because this is in immoral war in the first place. It doesn't look nice to have our people beating the hell out of the slime that we're supposed to be buddy buddy with, even if they diddle kids. Oh wait, that's not ok, because it's why we're totally destroying all of those politicians... Long story short on this one. This is a story that is not exactly news, because it's tacitly been agreed to be ignored by the PTB. If it don't cost them money, they don't care. The Sergeant and Captain could have cost The PTB a great deal of money by acting on their consciences, therefore they must be punished severely. This story will never be mentioned again, except by conservatives who will use it to show how evil Islam is, as opposed to showing how fucked up the situation is, by forcing soldiers to ignore a blatant evil in the name of profit.
So, Good luck this Monday, I'll be back on in a few hours to respond to any and all comments.
