The military forces of the United States were once- unquestionably- the world’s finest. That military defeated the greatest world power in the history of the planet to that time in order to gain its country’s independence. It went overseas and won World War I and II by defeating the Kaiser, Hitler, Stalin, Tojo, and Mussolini, thereby defeating hyper-nationalism, fascism, communism, and rule by arrogant dictatorship all nearly simultaneously.
That nation’s armed forces went on to make it possible for millions of people around the world to throw off the shackles of bondage and servitude. It also was a major factor in the U.S. winning the Cold War…without a shot being fired.
How stands that once proud and indefatigable force today, after seven plus years of Obama as Commander-in-Chief? After all, it is needed today- perhaps as never before- what with the proliferation of Islamic terrorism, the re-rise of Russian aggression, the prospect of a nuclear North Korea and Iran, etc., etc., etc.
In light of these threats, the Obama administration has given the Pentagon a clear mandate to…make sure that trans-gender military members are allowed to don whatever sex’s underwear they prefer and be allowed to excrete together in the same confined quarters. Screw the big geo-political picture, let’s make sure we’ve addressed the existential threat of gender-specific uniforms! Let’s talk about grooming rules and bathroom access!
What happened to the concept of “don’t ask, don’t tell” in this case? I mean, unless the boys are demanding to march in evening gowns or go to combat in Daisy Duke shorts and a halter top, who the Hell cares?
