All-volunteer military may
desensitize U.S. to war, some fear

McClatchy Newspapers, by Matthew Schofield

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/1/2013 9:47:04 AM

WASHINGTON — Before a roadside bomb in Baghdad burned and tore apart Jerry Majetich, before 62 operations put him back together, even before he volunteered for the Marines, then the Army, there were five older brothers who’d enlisted and a mother who’d served as an Army nurse in Korea. (Snip) Sen. James Inhofe, an Oklahoma Republican, has spent decades voicing such fears. He’s one of the few politicians around who still yearn for a draft. “Now, we’re never going to get the draft back,” he said. “But I really believe the greatest risk isn’t to the military

We keep sending our troops back 3-4 times to complete a mission that has no stated goals. That would desensitize anyone. Some kids see the military as a way to a college education, or learn a trade. Others are inspired by guys like SEAL Team 6 and their Green Beret and Delta brothers in the Army. It is what it is, a job or a career. Not all soldiers fight, but all are trained to.

There is a war on this planet and it´s the Radical Islamists trying to gain control (Middle East, Asia, Africa, and even Europe). Without understanding the Islamist intentions, leftists are clueless on why we put up resistance to the Islamist expansion.

Some of the citizenry of the United States is ignorant of military service because - and I´d yell this at the reporter but will be nice and quiet for hangover sufferers here - is because *you* jackasses misreport and lie about those who do serve.

So the solution to an irresponsible press is involuntary servitude. Astonishing what these scum will posit to cover their sorry behinds.

US military force is an overmuscled oaf shackled by lawyers, bureaucrats, and politicians, including its CINC. It is an expensive, oversized sledgehammer with limited use that forever seeks a bigger head and a better handle. We have weapons we fear to use...will not use. Victory is elusive because Americans are afraid to win, to impose our will, and to walk away without apology. After nearly 60 years our occupation and reconstruction of western Europe has served to allow our allies to effectively dismantle their military at our expense. And we´re still there! The Cold War is long over. We lost our consensus "enemy".

Let´s admit we don´t have the societal will anymore to fight a major war to successful conclusion. Virtually all damage is portrayed as collateral, and wrongly inflicted. Any casualties are unacceptable. Rules of engagement are a humanitarian joke. We cannot ever seem to disengage ourselves. Patton was wrong, Americans don´t necessarily demand winners, and will tolerate alternatives to victory. If anything "desensitizes Americans to war" it´s these neverending sagas.

“Now, we’re never going to get the draft back,”

What a blatantly lying and stupid statement. When all of our diversity-inspired brothers around the world overrun America to pick up the pieces of a once-great society, the liberal cowards will be demanding that every child who can walk be made to carry a weapon to defend aforementioned liberals from the harm that they are inviting on all of us by systematically crippling our military.

Interesting article and comments by all posters. At Glenn Beck´s recommendation, I am about halfway throught Chris Stewart´s series " The Wrath and Righteous". Though we may question the methods of fighting against radical Islam ( our liberal ROE drive me crazy) we certainly are at war and I am very thankful for those that volunteer to put their lives on the line no matter the compelling reasons. It is unfortunate that we cannot do what it takes to win in the old -fashioned but always true sense.

#10, I don´t believe Americans (real ones) are afraid to win. It´s the politicians that are afraid. They shackle the hands of the military, and then complain about casualties. The media used to show body bags before Obummer got elected, which would anger the people. We just aren´t allowed to win, and the politicians rules of engagement keep it that way. And now the fact that so many of our general officers are too political keep us from winning. After all, can´t upset the enemy. They may have relatives who vote here.
Desensitized? I don´t think so. It´s mainly those who want out, or are unfit for military life, that are using that as an excuse. I know things and attitudes change over the years, but when I served, during the Korean War, our country had just emerged from WW2, yet we had no reservations about our job. But by the same token, in no way were we "desensitized" to war or all it meant.

The reason we are in the mess we are in is that too few families have ever had to risk anything to live in freedom. We should have a mandatory service period for all young people- mandatory, including even the disabled. To gain full citizenship, you should have to serve for at least two years! People who are not invested in their nation have no nation! They are simply hyphenated-citizens.

Chef says preparing healthy Passover
seder to suit Michelle Obama
‘is a different (matzo) ball game’

Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/17/2014 7:32:07 PM     Post Reply
Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s numbers worst

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

London - British police said Tuesday they had intervened after North Korean embassy officials reportedly told a London hairdresser to take down a discount haircuts advert featuring leader Kim Jong-Un. Mo Nabbach said two officials identifying themselves as being from the Stalinist state´s mission took pictures of his M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London. They then demanded to know his name and ordered him to remove the "disrespectful" poster from the salon window, he told the Evening Standard newspaper.

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent. "The Ukrainian authorities consider the events of the day as a display of external aggression from Russia,"

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
