The Sheepdogs are the Enemy

A wise man never drinks his own koolaid. Same goes for the people of any State.

The State should always be critiqued. It should always be distrusted.

When the wolves become sheep, it’s all over but the slaughter. We have become a nation of sheep. I don’t trust the Sheep or the Sheepdogs. I only trust wolves. Wolves will always act in their own self interest. Sheep are easily led to their own demise. Sheepdogs pretend to care for the flock even as they lead them to that demise…on orders of the wolves.

The Sheep will be slaughtered.
The Sheepdogs will obey. No matter the cost.
The Wolves SHALL eat.

Those who trust the State are Sheep or Sheepdogs. In the end, they face the same fate.

The Founding Fathers did not trust the State. Hence the Constitution set up to impede the accrual of power and the Bill of Rights delineating certain Rights that exist prior to the State and upon which the State should never be allowed to infringe.

Yet, we live in an age when the State is allowed to infringe upon those inalienable Rights. More than that, we beg the State to infringe upon those Rights. We worship the State and the minions of the State with our Thin Blue Line stickers and our blind defence of Law Enforcement. We denigrate those who protest the State in defense of the rights upon which the State has trampled.

America is living the Orwellian Nightmare.

We have descended into the Soviet Gulag. We are now mandated to possess a national ID card or we will be forbidden air travel now…vehicle travel later.

These things occur now and all I hear is “Impeach Trump!” or “God Bless Trump!”

It is madness.

What can you do without permission of the State?

 

 

 

The Essence of Christ

I am no Christian. I was raised Christian and have read the Bible extensively.

This is the Sermon on the Mount.

If the Christians of this era were to read the actual words of Christ, they should fall on their knees and repent. Not many Christians of this age will be rewarded in heaven. 

 

 

 

 

Matthew 5-7 New International Version (NIV)

Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad,because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Salt and Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

The Fulfillment of the Law

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Murder

21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder,[a] and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister[b][c] will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’[d] is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.

23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you,24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.

25 “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26 Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.

Adultery

27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[e]28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

Divorce

31 “It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’[f] 32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Oaths

33 “Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ 34 But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.[g]

Eye for Eye

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’[h]39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

Love for Enemies

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[i] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Giving to the Needy

“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

“So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Prayer

“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babblinglike pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you needbefore you ask him.

“This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,[j]
    but deliver us from the evil one.[k]

14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Fasting

16 “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18 so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Treasures in Heaven

19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy,[l] your whole body will be full of light. 23 But if your eyes are unhealthy,[m] your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

Do Not Worry

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[n]?

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Judging Others

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

Ask, Seek, Knock

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

The Narrow and Wide Gates

13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

True and False Prophets

15 “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

True and False Disciples

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

The Wise and Foolish Builders

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.

Afghan Culture As It May Affect Training

downloadFirst a little background. I gave a two week logistics course in Herat from 2007 to 2010. My classes were officer heavy. Majority were MAJ to COL with a few GOs sprinkled in. However, when I went to the Districts, I instructed CPT and below with a few NCOs involved.

Lessons learned are as follows:

1. Afghans have a great respect for Teachers. I ran into students out in the Districts and Provinces. They would put their hands over their hearts, bow slightly and address me as Teacher. They would thank me and seek advice. It happened quite often.

Afghanistan is an Asian culture. This respect for teachers goes back to the Chinese classical era (Lao Tzu, Sun Tzu, Confucious, etc).

Use that to your advantage by having your Interpreter refer to the instructors as Teachers.

2. Show respect for Islam. Regardless of your personal feelings. If you have to, fake the funk.

3. Let them get to know you. I set aside time in all of my classes for this. A period in the beginning where I talked about who I am, where I came from and the experience that made me the “expert” who teaches them these new techniques, etc.

4. I ended every class day with a couple of videos. Jennifer Lopez or Shakira. Nothing too crazy that might offend. They loved it. This actually drove people to attend my classes religiously. If I skipped a day or forgot to play the videos, my students would request them.

While these videos played, some of the students would approach me and talk to me on the side. It allowed me to get to know my students and gave them a temporary break or a new experience.

Many of these guys have never seen the internet or a music video.

5. Don’t be afraid to RESPECTFULLY speak about politics and religion. I learned much doing this about the motivations and personalities of my students.

6. Your interpreter is your primary source of contact and communication. I know this seems obvious but, for some reason, it is not.

The Teacher’s (instructor’s) relationship with the Afghan Interpreter will heavily influence your relationship with and effectiveness as an instructor/teacher.

If you do not like  your Interpreter, it will show. If you have a poorly skilled interpreter, you will not be able to communicate the skills, TTPs, etc that you wish to pass on to your students.

You and your Interpreter should be seamless. The Interpreter should be an extension of the Instructor.

When you are addressing the class, ADDRESS the CLASS. Then give your Interpreter the nod to translate. Look your students in the eye (collectively and individually) as you instruct. Do not address your Interpreter as you instruct your class/course. This will become second nature over time.

7. Speak a bit of Dari and/or Pashtun. The Afghans love this. A little is all it takes.

8. Greet your students at the door of the class each day (if this is possible). I did this each morning as they arrived. It sets the tone. It allows them to become comfortable with you. It shows that you care about them.

9. Do not be afraid to touch them. I put my arm around my Afghan counterparts shoulders all of the time. Touch has the amazing capacity to affect people’s impressions of you. It works. It will increase their respect and affection for you as their teacher enabling you to become a more effective instructor.

10. Learn a bit about the history of Afghanistan.  King Mohammad Zahir Shah (Pashtoon), Dawood Khan (Pashtoon) , Doostum (Uzbek), Ahmad Shah Massoud (Tajik), Abdul Haq (Pashtoon). Learn the difference between a Hazara, Tajik and Pashtoon. Learn the difference between a Shi’a and a Sunni. They will be impressed. It works. I’ve used this to great effect with the ANP, ABP, ANA and our guys.

11. Understand that, though these guys may be uneducated, they are not unintelligent. These guys catch on quick. They pay attention to how you treat them. They pay attention to your frustration levels. They understand body language. They may learn differently than you. They may take a bit more time than you wish because of the language barrier. They are not dumb.

12. Never show anger. This is an Asian culture. Face saving is incredibly important and delicate. They will kill over loss of face. Smile, be patient and laugh freely.

And finally, though it may seem to be common sense:

NEVER OFFEND ISLAM or MOHAMMAD. Do this once and you may as well quit and go home.

Sex, Harassment And Hollywood

39e3cfe46071f9970e2881ae77a1dfe9

McGowan remained silent when it profited her to do so.

I’ve been a victim of Sexual Harassment. I’ve also been accused of Sexual Harassment. I am a male.

There is a distinct difference in the ways that men and women deal with sexual harassment. Men usually do something to end it. Women usually let it go along until something bad happens or until they decide to file a complaint.

That is my experience.

I was in Egypt in 1997. I had a female Officer who would become intoxicated and then proceed to paw at every dude she encountered. She finally got around to me. When she did, I simply turned her down and then told her to police herself as she was acting foolishly and, eventually, someone was going to ruin her career over her behavior. Simple right?

I guess not.

Women, apparently, can’t do this. They let men paw at them for months or years. They let the men to accost them go on to harass and assault others for months or years. Women take pay offs and remain silent for years as other victims pile up.

Then years later, like Rose McGowan, they “courageously” come out about the behavior.

Rose McGowan is not a hero. She is a coward. She remained silent for decades and allowed other women to allegedly be victimized by Harvey Weinstein and others in the Entertainment Industry. There are more. McGowan is not the only cowardly “heroine” of the moment.

Anyone in the Democratic Party who speaks out against Weinstein and continues to protect and support the Clintons are equally cowards. Bill Clinton’s reign of terror in Arkansas and Washington, D.C, last a few decades. Hillary Clinton’s cover ups are ongoing today. Hillary was Bill’s attack dog. In order for Hillary to consummate her ambitions Bill could not go down to “loose women of questionable moral values.” Bill could not be at fault when it came to rape, sexual assault or sexual harassment. The victims had to be blamed and Hillary was the attack dog that made it so. She destroyed the women who, in an earlier Weinstein like episode, came out against Bill Clinton.

And the whole of Hollywood protected them and shamed Bill’s victims. The whole of Hollywood remained silent. 40 years later, the whole of Leftist Hollywood are still covering for Hillary’s behaviors.

Neither Donna Karan nor Democratic Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson have done or said anything worse than Hillary Clinton. They made statements. Hillary Clinton actively destroyed the victims of her husband.

I’ve always been suspicious of sexual harassment allegations myself. Why? I’m a victim of a false allegation. A woman who worked for me falsely accused me of sexual harassment because she wanted to go to an easier job. I had attempted to train her and make her a competent employee. She had no desire, at that time, to be such. She falsely accused me of sexual harassment. She was proven to be a liar. There was not one person who had witnessed anything of any sort that could have been construed as sexual harassment and the other female in my employ testified to this. Aside from that, I have a known dating preference and this female was as far removed from that preference as could be imagined. All and sundry testified that I treated male and female in my employ exactly alike. Even if she had been “my type”, I’d not have sexually harassed her as I want competent employees not a personal dating pool where I work. As a rule, I do not date where I work. I’ve simply seen that behavior become too messy.

When women speak out about sexual harassment, I am always skeptical. I can’t help it. I’ve been falsely accused and I’ve seen others falsely accused.

Yet, I know it happens as I have seen it. It makes me feel queasy when I see it. If I am in a position to say something, I usually do. I’ve done it several times in my 30 plus years in the workplace. DL1V-UWW4AAZ0xy

What I rarely see, outside of places like Hollywood, is a person capable of 40 year careers as sexual opportunists. Politicians, Hollywood Elitists, CEOs, Generals in the Military — these are the folks who usually are proven to be career perverts and/or harassers. Usually, it turns out that those who are loudest about empowering women turn out to  be the worst. These Champions of women are usually attempting to divert attention from their pathological attacks on women. Either that or they wish to somehow assuage their guilt. These folks will destroy others for lesser behaviors while continuing to act out and attacking women whom they perceive to be susceptible, weak and vulnerable.

Rose McGowan and Asia Argento are no better than Harvey Weinstein. They profited from their attacker and remained silent for decades so that Harvey Weinstein could remain out in the open and attack hundreds or thousands of other women. They suddenly became “courageous” only after they could no longer use their allegations to profit from the Weinstein Company. This is not courage. This is convenience.

Hollywood should clean up their act. I’m tired of all of the preaching. I’m tired of the lies and duplicity. I’m tired of the double standards. I’m tired of the very people who pretend to be above it all being so far down into the gutter.

Stop calling these women courageous who remained silent for profit.

Harvey “I made a mistake” Weinstein was/is wrong. Harvey Weinstein is a predator. Harvey Weinstein is to blame for his behaviors. Sorry, Harvey, but 40 years of actively assaulting women and forcing yourself on them is not a mistake. That’s a pattern of behavior. That is psychoses. That is simply being a horrific human being. If Harvey Weinstein were poor, he’d be referred to as the Jeffrey Dahmer of serial rapists. He’s wealthy, though. In America, money turns a monster into a sympathetic human being. Even a Harvey Weinstein and a Bill Clinton. In America, money turns a woman who enables a serial rapist and harasser into a Presidential Candidate.

Rose McGowan and every other Hollywood Actor who remained silent in order to work with and profit from the Weinstein Company are complicit. They are guilty of enabling these and other predators.

I see not one hero or heroine in any of this saga. Certainly not Rose McGowen, Asia Argento or any of those who remained silent.

Dreamers, Indians and the Spanish

download (1)

The Dreamers are descendants of people who “took land from the Indians” as well. I find it hilarious that most people including many of them are too ignorant to recognize this basic fact.

 
The reality is that there weren’t that many “Indians” on the continent when Europeans began to colonize and inhabit the lands that now comprise the Americas. The whole of America was not covered in a mass of people occupying every acre of land. You can’t take something from someone to whom that something does not belong.
 
There are land areas that were taken forcibly from tribes. Such as the lands which were taken from the Creek and Cherokee in Georgia, Alabama and Florida which resulted in the Trail of Tears. This is true. Likewise, before the American Nation was formed, those Indians fought, conquered, raped and pillaged other tribes and took land from other peoples. There never existed on Great Indian Nation from sea to shining sea in North America or any part of the Americas.
 
For the most part, though, settlers moved into lands that were unoccupied but claimed as hunting grounds or sacred grounds by various tribes in the Americas. I’m calling bullshit on hunting grounds and sacred grounds. Would the Left who worships the “Noble Savage” be accommodating if it were Christians claiming that these grounds were sacred. I can tell you that the answer is no because every time a Christian claims America is a Christian Nation, the Left loses their collective minds and howls in discontent and righteous indignation.
 
The old, tired, blown out trope that we “took these lands from the Indians” is mostly nonsense. They didn’t own these lands and they were not the original inhabitants of these lands. The Indians whom Europeans encountered were merely the latest arrivals on the scene before the arrival of the Europeans. For instance, the Apache whom the Conquistadores encountered in the late 1500s and whom the US Cavalry fought in the Indian Wars in the late 1800s arrived….wait for it….IN THE LATE 1500s from what is now Canada. They were moving South taking lands from those who were there before them. What exactly is the difference between a migration of Europeans and a migration of Apache. I can tell you. The distances traveled.
 
The Apache won out for a time. Then the US became a National whole and conquered them as they would have conquered us if they had had the wherewithal to do so.
 
So, please, stop this nonsensical half truth, mostly false trope about the Noble Savage and their having been on these lands for thousands upon thousands of years.
 
If such were the case, someone needs to explain to me the rise and falls of the many empires that existed in the Americas prior to the advent of European Colonization of said Americans.
 
Fantasy and emotionalism are nothing upon which to based a firm, fact based opinion.
 
The only difference between a Dreamer and an American Citizens is that the Dreamer’s Spanish ancestors conquered, converted, enslaved, raped and pillaged what would eventually become Mexico and other Central or South American land areas.

Irrational is Irrational

download (18)

A rise in #WhiteNationalism is a natural outcome of the push for diversity in Western European descendant dominated Western Nations.

It is irrational to push a group of people to relinquish political power and not expect a backlash. It is also irrational to tell a group of people that they are evil because of their skin color whilst telling them that it is wrong to judge others by the color of their skin and to not expect a backlash.

In an age when Leftist will attack any White person simply because they “look like a Nazi”, this White Nationalism will continue to rise. Racism and bigotry cannot be fought with racism and bigotry. Hate does not defeat hate. Hate only inflames further the passions of all parties involved. Antifa is the epitome of this ignorance. There is no difference between Antifa and the American Nazi Party.

Wedge Politics and Identity Politics have been weaponized by the Left. To expect the targets of those weapons to not react is as irrational as the belief in superiority based upon skin color.

The Graveyard of Empires Trope

20915497_1454985237915016_2125474479073653928_n

Afghanistan is not the Graveyard of Empires. There is not one Empire in the history of humankind that has ended specifically because of Imperial Adventures in Afghanistan.

To the contrary, Empires have rarely attempted to conquer Afghanistan. Parts of modern day Afghanistan have been co-opted into various Empires. Afghanistan has been used as a stepping stone to other conquests. Most often, the lands that are now called Afghanistan have been worthless in and of themselves. Instead, Afghanistan is a crossroads of Empire. No one has ever wanted to rule the people here. They’re far too stubborn and unruly or they used to be.

Now, the people of Afghanistan have become bastardized miniaturized versions of Islamic takfirin or salafis. They aren’t quite certain what it means. Most of them have no idea of their owns history. Many who strive to live peaceably, do so with a bent towards the Western world and our Globalist, consumerist homogeneity.  Still others have been fatigued by decades of war with the Soviet Union, Mujahideen, the Paki-Saudi birthed Taliban, America and the West or the various insurgents, Taliban, al Qaeda and IS movements within the country. A very small minority will fight to the last man, yours or theirs, until they are simply left alone to be what they wish to be without interference from a foreign created, centralized State.

No great Afghan Army has ever defeated a foreign power. They have won key battles only to lose the larger war. This has happened with every incursion into their territory. More often than not, foreign armies simply lose interest in the area as it loses its momentary geographic importance or various empires declined and withdrew their forces from the region for reasons having absolutely nothing to do with the people of this historical crossroads.

If we were to compare the region to other historical crossroads, the most apt comparison would the the Levant. Empires arose. Empires conquered the area as they moved through. Empires fell. The people of the Levant rarely ruled anyone but were ruled by everyone.

Afghanistan has been the same. Empires have risen and entered the region. Perhaps, they stayed for a while as did the Greeks when they created the Bactrian civilization. Empires fell and withdrew through the same route leaving the area called Afghanistan to its petty, metropolitan potentates who rarely ruled anymore than 100 miles from the cities which they ruled. The tribes have been co-opted into Imperial Armies and then left to fend for themselves as these same Empires fell away to be replaced by others.

I can think of few Great Empires which bothered to conquer the area we now call Afghanistan.

The Brits did not try to conquer Afghanistan (it didn’t exist). The Brits came in and created a buffer zone between their Brit Raj and the Russian Empire. Yes, they had set backs. All in all, they accomplished what they set out to accomplish.

The Soviets would more than likely still be in the Stan if the US and Saudi Arabia had not funded the Muj and given them modern arms.

The Greeks established a lasting culture in the Stan. We can still see the remains of it. The Pathans didn’t defeat Alexander. Legend has it that Qandahar (Iskandhar) was originally settled by Alexander and named for him [by him]. The Bactrian Civilization, created by Greek settlers and soldiers, lasted for hundreds of years. Remnants of this civilization can be seen today.

The Mongols kicked ass in the Stan. It was never a case of the Mongol Empire(s) being unable to hold this land. They crushed the Islamic rulers in the Stan. Absolutely crushed the bastards. The Mongols who settled and ruled the area eventually converted to Islam. They weren’t defeated. They simply became one and the same. The Hazara, said to be the descendants of the original Mongols, are still in the Stan as a lasting legacy. Balkh is still a ruin as a lasting legacy of the power of Jinghiss Khan and his progeny.

Tamerlane came in and took the joint then ignored it.

The Moghuls led by Babar Khan conquered the Stan and kept it until the British Raj weakened them. One can visit Babur’s grave and the mini-Taj built for him by his grandson Shah Jahan.

The Sassanids held Khorasan for quite a long time.

There were other conquerors who passed through.

What is now Afghanistan has never been valuable as a whole. Khorasan was a center of Islamic learning for hundreds of years. It was said to be the most beautiful city and the most learned city in this part of the world. It is one of the few cities that was an actual center of learning FOR WOMEN in the Islamic World thanks to the wife of Timur the Lame.

There were others.

This is not the graveyard of empires. This is a place that has always been on the periphery of empires because there has, historically, been nothing of value that empires desire except for the ability to pass through on the way to the conquest of India, China, Eurasia, Europe, Persia, etc.

There has been no Empire which has fallen specifically because of that Empire’s adventures in the land of the Pathan.

I so wish that the media would stop perpetuating this inane nonsense.

Even so, I still love the cartoons that the myth produces.

The US Military can defeat any Middle Eastern Military and North Korea

gentleman_s_war_by_krashnicoff-d6l8p50

No Middle Eastern Army can stand against the US Army. None. Not one. North Korea’s Military will be crushed in a few weeks, if they and we are foolish enough to engage in that war. The question would not be military defeat of North Korea. The question as it was in 1950 is Chinese reaction.

Insurgents can hold out because the US, Israel and other Western Forces will attempt to minimize civilian casualties. Conversely, the insurgents such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Hamas, the PLA, ISIS, al Qaeda will purposely target civilians and manifest amongst civilians in order to raise the civilian death toll so that Western NGOs will place blame on the Western Armies and on Israel.

If Israel or the US Military were to turn loose and not care about civilian casualties or infrastructure, these insurgents would be defeated swiftly. Western Politicians send Western Armies into the field with one eye blinded, one arm tied to one leg with trigger fingers glued to the palm. The US military could defeat the insurgents if they were allowed to plow through and kill everything in sight. If the US Military were to wage total war, there is not an insurgent group which could withstand the pressure of such a war. The will of the people would be destroyed.

If an American General was to be set loose in the fashion of W. T. Sherman or Genghis Khan, there is not a force extant in the Middle East who could stand before them. Not one.

The West attempts to be civilized. We are back to the gentlemanly wars of the 18th Century. Tea at noon. Battle at 1330 sharp. Turns at volleys. Pish Pish.

The Cold War with the Soviet Union turned the American Military soft. That same Cold War destroyed the will of Western Europe to survive.

Atomic Blonde and Reality

atomic-blonde-movie-poster

I enjoy movies that are well crafted regardless of who is in the lead role. It could be a Black Man or a Blonde Woman.

 
Hollywood is much more conservative than their audience. If the movie has a good script and good acting or, better yet, excellent script, casting and acting, people will watch it. This has been proven time and again.
 
The only problem with these roles for women is that, barring something supernatural, there is no way that these skinny, little women could take on these huge men and come away still alive. I understand that these movies are fictional and entertainment. Unfortunately, much of the Left takes these roles and translates them to life. It isn’t going to happen.
 
If Charlize Theron or Zoe Saldana hit or kicked me, I’d fall alright…from laughing. Women and Girls need to keep this in mind and not take these movies as a way ahead. I’ve seen it already. Women thinking that they are empowered so they can strike out physically at men. It’s all good as long as the male doesn’t retaliate. Once the man strikes back, he is suddenly the criminal and a woman abuser even though he is defending himself from a crazy woman whose been watching Wonder Woman and thinks that she has the power.
 
Equality only goes so far with the Left. Women are equal in all things RIGHT UP UNTIL THEY HIT A MAN AND THE MAN HITS BACK. Then the man is a misogynist despite the fact that he was attacked.
 
That kid from Oklahoma is a prime example. He is attacked by a drunken woman. He defends himself. Of course, the power observed used by the male is going to seem too much as compared to the female. It is natural. Men have more power. This is multiplied when the male works out on a regular basis.
 
Women need to keep this in mind in the age of Equality. If you want to be completely equal, think twice before physically attacking a 215lbs Athletic male when you are a 90lbs female. 
 

The Army, Adultery & Hypocrisy

MG John M. Custer – The Spendthrift Adulterer who used Army funds to keep his Adultress dressed in Victoria’s Secret

Why is the Army in the business of charging people with adultery?

Why can’t the Army get out of the adultery business?

Recently, MG John M. Custer III was allowed to retire with full rank and benefits. The charge? ADULTERY!

This guy wasn’t the average adulterer, though. He actually used his staff and military funds to buy presents for his fornicatress.

The Army inspector general was unsparing: The two-star general had an inappropriate relationship with a woman and lied to investigators about it, made his staff buy sexy clothing for her, subjected his underlings to racist and sexist emails and allowed himself to be photographed with another woman licking the medals on his formal dress uniform.

This guy who was obviously guilty of violations of UCMJ Code and Behavior Unbecoming of an Officer, much less a General Officer, was allowed to retire. He had top cover from GEN Martin Dempsey. More than likely, Custer and Dempsey had known each other a long, long time. Custer probably had the goods on Dempsey. Aside from being a fellow General and being good buddies, Dempsey more than likely feared what could be released to the Army Inspector General’s Office by John M. Custer.

So, Dempsey cleaned the record, provided top cover and lied by omission to the American Congress.

GEN Martin “CYA” Dempsey lying to Congress by omission about his buddy Johnny C

Nothing new here.

Generals cover for Generals all of the time. General Keane, whilst Commanding Genera of the 101st Screaming Eagles, was picked up for DUI on a near weekly basis. Cover and Concealment was provided and Keane was promoted to the Pentagon.

Here’s my issue.

MSG Snuffy or his soldier PVT Blase’ gets a DUI or is charged with the Big A and…

BOOM!

Courts Martial!

Article 15!

General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand!

They tattoo a HUGE LETTER “R” on one’s forehead and crush you. Oft times, they don’t stop there. Unsatisfied with merely ruining a career and kicking one out of the military. They proceed further and attempt to leave a permanent stain on the record. Removal is not enough. They desire more than anything to hand out that DD Form 214 with a General or Other Than Honorable Discharge. It sounds a bit like a bad villain in a James Bond knock off.

Officers are quick to break out the Uniform Code of Military Justice on an Enlisted Soldier or a junior Officer. Field Grade and General Officers are quick to preach and ruin careers.  GEN Petraeus and MG Custer have ruined careers over adultery. GEN Keane ruined careers over DUI. They like many of their peers were guilty of the same acts. Other Field Grade and General Officers are fully aware of the behaviors of these Officers. Yet, nothing happens to a General unless they are found out by the media or some other source which can hurt the image of the Army. The Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force are guilty of this same behavior.

I currently work with a guy who was charged with adultery and drummed out of the Army. This person was a Captain at the time. He was legally separated from his wife. However, the Army does not recognize legal separation. One is either Single, Married or Divorced in the Army. If you are active duty, remember this.

This former Army Captain was charged with adultery by none other than, then, MG John M. Custer III. Apparently, simultaneous to Custer administratively processing this person out of the Army for violation of the UCMJ over adultery, Custer, himself, was in an adulterous affair.

Custer’s impropriety occurred whilst Custer was married but was swept under the rug by GEN Dempsey. The Captain was harassed and charged with adultery despite the fact that he was legally separated.

I’ve seen these actions happen time and again in the US Army. A Staff Sergeant at my unit in Fort Belvoir was given Article 15 and reduced to Sergeant. He was administratively removed from the Army. His crime? The appearance of impropriety with a soldier in the same command. The Battalion Commander could not prove that he had done anything wrong. However, he could trump up a charge and ruin this man’s career. At that same time, this Battalion Commander was having an affair with the wife of an Non-commissioned Officer in his command. Nothing was ever done about this. No investigation. No charges were ever proffered. The whole affair was swept under the rug and the Battalion Commander was allowed to retire.

Will the Army every resolve these issues? I have no doubt that it will not. As long as there is a US Army, there will exist the *RHIP attitude amongst General Officers and these same men and women will protect those whom they deem loyal to themselves.

No one in Congress cares. No President cares. The little guy will always get the short end of the stick.

Liberals and the Military

Many Liberals believe that those who join the military have a mental illness. I disagree.

In most cases, people join the military to “defend the country” and are misused by the politicians for whom you vote. You and anyone who votes are complicit. Many people join the military to obtain a skill with which to, later, market themselves. Some join the military to pay for education.

Not all of us were born with a silver spoon up our asses. Some of us didn’t even have a spoon. Some of us were beaten with the spoon and it was wooden.

The US Military is supposed to be a Defensive Military. It is called the Department of Defense after all. It is misused because Americans vote for Presidents such as George Bush, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. All of these Presidents have misused the Department of Defense to protect and further Corporate and Bank goals and profits.

Perhaps, that means that those who vote for these creatures have a mental illness. At the very least, those who vote for Republicans and especially those who vote for Democrats are gullible.

Certainly, anyone who abhors the military or believes that those who join the military have a mental illness and who voted for Hillary Clinton are either gullible or bi-polar. Hillary made it clear that she was a War Candidate. Well, it was clear to all but the gullible Far Left.

The Trump Ban on Transgender Persons

download

This is not bigotry. The Transexual Ban is not bigotry.

Transgender persons fall into one of three categories.

  1. Mental/Emotional Issues brought about by Gender Dysphoria.
  2. Medical/Physical Issues that will come with the transformation process.
  3. Transgender folks who have no complications brought about by Gender Dysphoria and who are not undergoing the transformation process.
  4. Those who have already been through the transformation process successfully and are fully adjusted as that gender in society.

The 1st category does not belong in the military. The 2nd category does not belong in the military.

The Third & Fourth Categories, I would allow in the military. However, they would have to, during duty hours, appear and act as their birth assigned gender during their military service.

I agree with the “Trump Ban” on Transgender Persons joining the military. The only exception that I would make is for persons who are willing to sign a lawfully binding agreement stating that they will not undergo the transformation process until AFTER their terms of service. In explanation, if one joins as a Female, one remains a Female and acts as a Female until one leaves the Military. (Same for Males, of course.)

The military is not the place to be on the journey of transformation from one gender to another. The military has a mission. One must be deployable to conflicts or other missions while in the military. The physical transformation process from male to female or female to male and the mental and emotional issues that accompany the transformation process would necessarily make these persons in these processes non-deployable. At which time, the servicemember would become useless to the needs of the military.

The US Army and Marine Corps, etc are not the places for self discovery of this type.

Confederate Statues

MAY24_CONFEDERATEMONUMENTS_POST01

Take those damnable monuments to imbecility, racism, arrogance and ignorance down.

I see the Confederate monuments as a slap in the face to the people who were enslaved and then kept under the thumb of their former masters from 1871 to 1970…give or take. I can completely see why a Black American would look at those statues and feel the oppressive stare of the South and the KKK gazing upon them.

The South has not been good to our Black American brothers and sisters.

Those statues should not be on PUBLIC land and no PUBLIC funds should go towards their maintenance.

If we could divorce the South from her racially oppressive past, I’d be all for keeping those Statues up. However, it is not possible. Especially at a time when the drug war started by Nixon to take out his enemies whom Nixon characterized as “damned Niggers, Spics and Hippies” is still legislatively criminalizing millions of Black and poor White Americans each year and when American Law Enforcement are killing Americans, to include but not limited to Black Americans, with qualified immunity (aka qualified impunity) to the tune of 1,000 American Citizens each year. Mostly, this idiot war on drugs is waged to keep Americans from partaking of a substance which grows in the wild in my home state AND the Feds come around every so often to burn it out…coz it’s demon weed.

Jeff Sessions is proof positive that the attitudes of many in the South have not changed since that idiot Nixon’s Southern Strategy was used to win the Presidency.

I say all of that to say this. The injuries of the War between the States are still fresh over 150 years later.

Each new injury by the State opens the wounds anew.

No person who waged war against the State is owed a statue or honor in that State. State in this instance, of course, being the State which was created or, rather, cemented with Lincoln’s Northern War of Aggression.

If the South had won, they could have all of the Statues on public lands that they wished to erect to idiots such as Jeff Davis and Braxton Bragg.

They lost.

They get no statues.

Again, those statues were erected for one purpose. The same purpose as the sudden eruption of the Confederate Battle Flag in the 1960s. Intimidation of Black Americans.

Either we have moved past that stupidity and we take them down or we admit that we are still petty pieces of shit who can’t get past the color of a person’s skin to get to know the human who exists within that skin.

Every Black American with an ounce of self respect is angered by those statues. I don’t expect a fellow cracker to fully comprehend it. I can’t. I only know that if I had to look at a statue of some guy who thought it right and proper to enslave me all of the time, I’d be pissed. If I was taxed to maintain that statue, I might be pissed enough to commit to an act of terror and blow that fucker up. If I had to look at a flag that symbolized every act of oppression against me and part of my taxes went to maintain that flag, I’d throw gasoline on that flag and burn that fucker down.

Any person with an ounce of dignity, self respect and honor would be angered by a State which insisted on maintaining statues and flags which were erected as a slight against their person would feel the same way.

Only a slave would feel otherwise.

Conspiracy Theory

download

I love people who hide behind the “Conspiracy Theory” trope. It’s like a grand security blanket. Nice, cozy, warm.

Years later, we learn that, after all, these weren’t conspiracy theory but actual conspiracy. In the meantime, in the winter of our denial, men have died to bring us truth. Lives were destroyed by the State whilst attempting to reveal the criminal actions of the State. Still, the denial lives on flowing through the ages as a muddied river hiding the great sins of the State.

I can’t count the number of conspiracy theories that have been found to have been actual plans, acts and, yes, conspiracies, not theoretical, but real.

No one thought that the Government of the United States would subvert the Media. Yet, #OperationMockingbird.

No one believed that the CIA would be involved in the importation and sale of drugs. Yet, the evidence is everywhere and is, now, spoken of openly. It’s common knowledge.

No one thought that the US Government would experiment on it’s own citizens. Yet, we now know all about MKULTRA, Tuskegee, and the practice of dropping clouds of gasses on American Cities to test the dispersion patterns of CRBN agents.

And every time these “conspiracy theories” are proven to be, not theory, but actual acts of the State, people say; “Well, who could have known?” and immediately go back into denial. Who could have known? The Men and Women who are now dead or whose lives have been destroyed in the effort to bring these truths to the fore.

The only thing that keeps Liberty alive is knowledge and the will to act on said knowledge. The person who screams “conspiracy theory” at every turn is the exact enemy of knowledge and acts, willingly or not, knowingly or not, on the part of the State to destroy the will to act on that knowledge.

 

Afghanistan 2017 — Mission Improbable

001

One of the bigger problems in the Stan is continuity. The Military come and go with a frequency that is mind numbing.

They also have the WIAS tasking group. They come in one of the following categories:

  1. SMs not wanted at their command
  2. ROAD Scholars
  3. Guys who volunteered

Category 1 are usually exemplified by a willingness to sit around and do nothing (aka shitheads or duds). They either don’t want to do anything and don’t care about the mission or they truly suck and are incapable of doing anything but damage.

We recently had the pleasure of a guy of the second sort receiving the heave ho from our area. He tried poorly to do everything and I mean everything but accomplished nothing. We likened him to a puppy chasing around silver, bouncy balls. He’d catch one. He’d start a project. Then he’d see another shiny ball bouncing down the path and chase after that one. Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

This, of course, left others playing catch the ball behind him because much of what he’d start affected other lines of effort or, more accurately, threw wrenches in other lines of effort. We had just been getting the Afghans to take responsibility for themselves and to actually DO things on their own. It all ended within a month of his arrival as he let them do what they do all too well. They suckered him into doing their work so that they could sit back and relax. This Captain thought that it made him popular with the Afghans. Alas, they all saw him for what he was and couldn’t stand him.

He also had an issue with Black people. I couldn’t pin it down but the guy had problems with any Black person who did not outrank him or couldn’t help him chase bouncy, shiny balls around camp.

This guy was worse than worthless. He did real damage to the effort.  This should not be tolerated. Unfortunately, this is the affect of a great many of the WIAS Tasking output. In many AORs, WIAS tasker is a profane curse.

Another of these WIAS worthies used open source email to put out SECRET information. This mental giant was actually an Intel Officer. Yes, they’re that bad.

Category 2 are usually lazy and are just riding out the year. Some of them can be motivated to act. Some of them can be tricked into acting. Others couldn’t be dislodged from their complacency and F’hobbitian methods with a strike from Thor’s Mjolnir.

Category 3 are usually guys who are motivated and will help get things done. Most of these folks will listen to those who have been here a minute. They have military imperatives that they must, at least, attempt to accomplish and that a guy like me must understand and, if possible, assist him in accomplishing.

Cat 3 guys usually do some good. Especially if they listen well and/or have taken some time to learn about Afghan culture and the history of the ANDSF.

Unfortunately, Cat 3s are about One in 10,000.

Some Special Units rotate in for 90 days a pop. These guys are hard chargers who want to go to war and kill something. Some of them do well and do good. Others…well, not so much.

Last but not least, the Commanders. We get guys who go with the flow. We get guys who think they are making GREAT CHANGES that are mere reinventions of wheels tried in’ 07 or ’13. You get Commanders who land on the ground with a Squadron of Good Idea Fairies with unworkable nonsense. And you get some good Commanders who try to take what is working and improve it, discard foolishness and try to rework seemingly insoluble problems.

Back to continuity.

Individuals pop in and out of Afghanistan on 90 day to 9 Month tours. The WIAS tasker guys may stay a full year or may not. We’ve had quite a few of these guys get Pink Slips and head home 3 to 6 months early.

Some Contractors do a year and roll out.

However, you also have Contractors who stay for years at a time and know the lay of the land.

By and large, the Contractor is ignored…as long as he’s doing something. The Contractor doesn’t have to accomplish anything as long as it looks like it is delivering on the DELIVERABLEs.

Deliverables may or may not be vague as hell.

You’ve got some Contractors who do some really great things AND you’ve got some who sit around and do as little as possible. Skaters who do just enough to seem relevant and not be descoped.
There are contractors over here who are hot shit and WANT desperately to accomplish something…anything. BUT, for the most part, if a Contractor makes a suggestion, the suggestion is all but ignored.
It’s not an atmosphere conducive to accomplishing much.

Contracts in the Stan are horribly written and are, oft times, inflexible.

Another huge problem is the low pay of the interpreters. The interpreter/translator is key. You get what you pay for. When I worked with Dyncorp, I was able to draw in the best around the country because we paid them better than anyone else.

Other contracts throw interpreter/translators into the verbiage as if an afterthought. “Oh yeah, we need some of those local talky fuckers.” That makes for some wretched hiring practices. You get guys who can barely speak English and can’t translate to save their lives.

These are some of the issues.

With high Military turnover, no one really cares. They’re here to do their year and roll out. You get a few who do care but not many.

We have one Major who thinks that it is his job to make the Afghans fail.

We have Generals who tell us that the Afghans cannot fail.

There are zero consequences for failure, corruption, incompetence, outright criminality, etc within the Afghan Army.

The ANSSF conduct something like 80% of the operations against the enemy even though they make up less than 15% of the force. The regular ANDSF who make up 80 to 85% of the force can’t fight their way out of their own FOBs.

It’s a seriously and incredibly strange endeavor in the Stan.

Personally, I think we’ve done about all we can do. UNLESS we have a serious leadership paradigm change.
And maybe we’ve got that with Trump/Mattis. Somehow, I doubt it.

Oh yeah…don’t get me started on the ISAF folks. The turks are worthless.
The Spaniards can’t do anything. The Italians drink wine. The Brits look hard but do very little except create rules that adds red tape to everything that they touch.

I went over to RS HQ once. You need a letter signed by a Colonel in triplicate just to get a room for the night. Everything else is correspondingly difficult to accomplish there.

The RS (ISAF) Badge is a great example of the cohesion of the effort here.

US bases won’t accept the ISAF badge for much, if anything.

In order to get onto HKIA, one must have an ISAF badge or one must be escorted. Even if one has a CAC.

It is quite possibly the dumbest thing in the world.

All of this is before anyone even thinks of going outside of the wire which doesn’t happen for about 99% of the US and Coalition Forces. Thanks to Dan Bolger, the whole of the US and Coalition Forces are F’hobbitized. Stuck on some base somewhere and can’t find their way to a local Nan shop much less a Taliban stronghold even though most any Afghan knows exactly where the Talibs. Insurgents and bandits are holed up at any given moment.

Hell, I used to be able to ride around Kabul and tell you exactly where the insurgents were hiding. I could point out bandit houses.

Now, though, I doubt that there are more than 20 American SMs who know jackshit about the Afghan countryside or where and who a local insurgent, bandit or bad guy might be.

Yet, even Hekmetyar has come in from the cold. lol That old bastard is playing some game. I can smell it.
