The Deadly Bureaucracy

10 07 2021

For at least a century now, the United States has been the leading superpower; both economically and militarily. Since the Spanish American War, the USA has maintained a strong military presence, with few exceptions, in every theater of war we have fought.

South Vietnamese Marines leap in panic aboard a cutter from an LST in Danang Harbor in Da Nang, Vietnam, April 1, 1975 as they are evacuated from the city, shortly before its fall to the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese…

We occupied the Philippines since 1898, until 1991, and a short few years later were asked to return in light of perceived ChiCom threats in the South China Sea. We still have a major military presence in South Korea, along with Japan (Okinawa) and Germany, where there have been no active military threats for decades.

As the United States walks away from one of the most strategic and hard won military installations ever established, the Taliban ravages the Afghan countryside taking back villages and subjugating people who had experienced a momentary reprieve from raw tyranny, filling the void left by the United States. The schools and infrastructure established with US help, where girls and women were allowed to attend, will be systematically destroyed, and resistance eliminated.

Our cooperators, those Afghan people who aided our forces by providing intelligence, or interpretation, and any ANSF soldiers, trained by, and fighting with the US who resist, or refuse to join the retaking of Kabul, will be killed along with their families. (Terrorists don’t always come directly at you; they threaten your families in order to make you comply.)

This morning I watched an Afghan interpreter who came to the United States after his invaluable service, speak about the failure of American Immigration Bureaucracy. He applied for asylum in 2009, through our embassy in Afghanistan. He was not permitted entrance to America until 2014. He was a true, and dire textbook case for asylum, as his life was in danger. Today there are 2500 Afghan Nationals who allied, worked for, or otherwise assisted the US government over the last 20 years, waiting for an even more ineffective bureaucracy. The Biden administration refuses to allow these people entrance onto American soil until the red tape is all completed. They will most likely be dead by then.

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of unidentified migrants flood across our southern border, among which are human traffickers, drug traffickers, cartel members, and cartel conscripts, along with people from all over the world, in an unmitigated humanitarian disaster, where, not only is bureaucracy ineffective, but ICE, CBP and other DHS and law enforcement field officers are ordered to stand down, are reassigned to provide aid and comfort, or release captured subjects into America with little or no expectation those people will ever see the inside of an immigration office.

None of these migrants, or invaders, have ever done one thing for the American People, United States, or it’s Government.

Our installations in Afghanistan are not only security and economic support for Afghan nationals, but the strategic location and proximity to Iran, Russia, China and Pakistan is highly advantageous in monitoring intelligence and the ability to launch counter or defensive operations in any future conflict involving any of those countries. (The Biden’s cozy relationship and lack of criticism of ChiCom dictator Xi, and American Communist organizations like BLM and Liberty Road, who celebrate Communist China openly, leaves fertile ground for conspiracy theories galore.)

It may take a year or two for Kabul/Bagram to fall, but like other Islamo-fascists as well as Communists, the Taliban are very patient. Obviously, it pays off, especially when dealing with a fickle US Government.

Think. What country or people would ever trust the US government to protect them or adhere to treaties or alliances, when American policies change after every election? (American Tribal Natives were only the first to experience this fickle betrayal.) Why should they? Ask the South Vietnamese about the vacuum left by US forces, after our government promised RVN forces full military hardware support upon our departure and it never came. Defunded. Afghanistan is a landlocked country with no infrastructure or mass transportation. There will be no “boat people”.

Saboor was fortunate. He had US military personnel keeping him secure while he waited for US government bureaucracy to process. 2500 of his fellow countrymen are watching that very security force being ordered to abandon Afghanistan, leaving them at the mercy of two merciless foes:

The Taliban, and the United States Immigration Bureaucracy.





To Pee or Not To Pee…Men and War

20 01 2012

I can’t stand it any longer! Four Marines relieve themselves on dead enemies that had been killing and maiming their buddies, and by the media and Pentagon leadership’s reaction you’d think there were implications on par with My Lai. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was “totally dismayed”. Really Leon Panetta? “Utterly deplorable”?!

How about this for “utterly deplorable”: The butchering of American GI’s on the streets of Mogadishu in 1993 by beheading and evisceration after being wounded and bludgeoned to death, then dragging the bodies through the streets of the city, while children dance and laugh, and women and men alike sing victory songs to Allah. Not deplorable?

Or perhaps the two 101st Airborne soldiers captured and brutally tortured and finally gutted and beheaded in Yousifayya, Iraq in 2006, all captured on video for the viewing public by the barbarian AQ pukes who then take two other American boys KIA and tie them to IED booby traps on the road to the other bodies. This incident was hardly mentioned in the media, let alone by any government officials at the time.

If that’s not “deplorable” enough Leon, how about Daniel Pearl, the civilian journalist who’s head was hacked from his bound body while his gurgling screams were drowned by his own blood. As Daniel struggled against his murderers they read from the Quran and chanted praises to Allah. Is that deplorable?!

I am amazed that the United States Government can still raise a volunteer force of the best fighting men and women in the world in light of the fact that their government officials may or may not have their backs. Now that’s “utterly deplorable”!

One specific instance that comes to mind is the bloody battle that 4 Navy SEALS who were on a surveilience mission in Afghanistan and were discovered by two Afghan goat herders. The SEALS knew if they released the herders, they were sure to bring the Taliban on them. However, if they did harm to them, their own government would crucify them. The SEALS chose to take on hundreds of Taliban rather than a civilian government who doesn’t understand war. Three of the four SEALS never came home and Marcus lives the life of a “Lone Survivor”. “Deplorable”?

War is war. It is not a football game where the rule book is enforced by umpires, close calls are reviewed in the instant replay booth,  and afterward we all shake hands and go home. The object of war is to kill the enemy and break his stuff until he quits trying to kill you. Human emotion and frustration during war sometimes drives civil people to do things that society may view as unacceptable, at least under normal conditions. How “civilized” is war anyway? It is indeed “utterly deplorable”.

Lt. Colonel Allen West, now Representative in the US Congress, suggests the Military handle the affair as follows:

“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter.

“As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.”

To Col. West I say, “Kudos”!

To a government who cannot decide if their paid military should be allowed to fight a war to a victorious end and are not willing to identify the enemy, I say this: “If our cause is not just, then get my son the hell out of Afghanistan!”

To my Marine son and his buddies I say this: “Semper Fi my brave boys; your politicians may be weak, but your people are strong!” Oooraah!

P.S. Here is a photo of a pose that General George S. Patton struck as he crossed the Rhine river, showing the Fuhrer what his thoughts were at the time. The following Patton quote was to Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander, Allied Expeditionary Force: “…I have just pissed into the Rhine River. For God’s sake, send some gasoline.”
