The US military is on an endless kamikaze run into oblivion, intent on destroying itself and seemingly unconcerned about putting the national security of this nation in peril.
Yes, you heard it here. The leaders of the US military are so concerned with political correctness that they dont give a damn about the defense of this nation.
The latest bit of lunatic social engineering was reported by CNN yesterday.
A woman will train with other potential officers this summer in hopes of becoming the first female Navy SEAL.
The candidate, a midshipman, and another woman have enlisted as the first female candidates seeking to join the Navys special operations teams.
The latter is training for the Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman program, or SWCC.
The article continued with the usual feminist nonsense of how this is a historic moment. Its historic all right, the way that Pearl Harbor and Hurricane Katrina were historic.
Of course the female midshipman mentioned will be going to BUD/S, the Navys version of a Nazi death camp with rip currents.
To get to BUD/S, take the escalator through hell to the mezzanine level, past the food court, over the River Styx and enter the US Navys Basic Underwater Demolition School, aka Navy SEAL training.
How the Navy is going to drop the standards to graduate a woman from BUD/S is going to be a journey into creativity and downright dishonesty. BUD/S will soon become something between a mirage, a hologram and a guided tour though Liberaces house.
BUD/S is a 24-week training challenge that develops the SEAL candidates mental and physical stamina and leadership skills. Each BUD/S phase includes timed physical condition tests, with the time requirements becoming more demanding each week. BUD/S consists of a three-week orientation followed by three phases, covering physical conditioning (seven weeks), combat diving (seven weeks), and land warfare (seven weeks) respectively. Officer and enlisted personnel go through the same training program. It is designed to develop and test their stamina, leadership, and ability to work as a team.
BUD/S INDOC is a three-week course that introduces candidates to Coronado, the Naval Special Warfare Center and the BUD/S lifestyle. During INDOC, Navy SEAL instructors introduce candidates to BUD/S physical training, the obstacle course and other unique training aspects. This part of training is designed to prepare candidates for day one of the first phase.
The first phase of BUD/S assesses SEAL candidates in physical conditioning, water competency, teamwork and mental tenacity. Physical conditioning utilizes running, swimming and calisthenics and grows harder and harder as the weeks progress. Candidates will participate in weekly four mile timed runs in boots and timed obstacle courses, swim distances up to two miles wearing fins in the ocean and learn small boat seamanship.
The first two weeks of basic conditioning prepare candidates for the third week, also known as Hell Week. During Hell Week, candidates participate in five and a half days of continuous training. Each candidate sleeps at most four hours during the entire week, runs more than 200 miles, and does physical training for more than 20 hours per day. The remaining four weeks involve the acquisition of various methods of conducting hydrographic surveys and creating a hydrographic chart.
After Hell Week, there are seven weeks of combat diving training, seven weeks of land warfare training, followed by three weeks at jump school. If youre alive after all this, you still have another 26 weeks of SEAL Qualification Training (SQT).
So, there it is. And, were now supposed to swallow that PC laced cyanide pill just like the Ranger School Pinocchios that were shoved down our throat.
Surely, the Navy brass are already figuring out numerous ways to dishonestly graduate the first female from BUDs, just like the Army dishonestly graduated three women, including one 37 year old mommy from Ranger School. In fact, if the Navy needs any help in the area of fudging numbers, giving women endless chances, changing NO GO to GO and concealing records from Congress, see the Ranger School cadre.
When you think of SEALs, pumped up studs like super sniper and all-American hero Chris Kyle come to mind, or commando maverick studs like Demo Dick Marcinko, Sharkman of the Delta and founder of SEAL Team 6.
When you think of the Navy SEALs, Greatest Generation heroes, like Angelo Chatas pop in your cabeza. Chatas was the first man on Utah Beach on June 6, 1944 and was subsequently wounded eight times on D-Day alone, while serving with the SEALs founding fathers, the Navy Frogmen. Chatas exploits are well known to the people of Saint Marie du Mont, the small village adjacent to Utah Beach. In fact, a street was named after him, Allee Angelo Theodore Chatas.
Chatas was the best friend of my uncle, who was also at D-Day with the Frogmen. Chatas and Marcinko and Kyle are all representative of a US military that used to focus on double taps in the dark, gutting a tango like a Coho Salmon and putting cold steel down range; instead of sensitivity training and making sure Marcia Brady is passed through BUD/S.
The days where the US military was actually a fighting force are disappearing like morning mist over Range 109 at Graf. We are witnessing the final death of the US military, a suicide by political correctness and diversity. And, the ironic thing is that the man overseeing its final doom is a person we all expected to save the ship instead of sinking it General Sleeping Dog Mattis.
Obviously, Sleeping Dog Mattis never really had any control at the Pentagon when it comes to the social engineering. The Pentagon was hijacked years ago by the feminist mafia who is changing the SEALs motto from Ready to Lead, Ready to Follow, Never Quit to You Go Girl! The Pentagon was car-jacked years ago by the LGBT cult worshippers who are changing the Armys motto from This Well Defend to Top or Bottom?
No one had more hope in General Mattis than me. That hope is being jettisoned like an empty fuel pod over the Solomons. Obviously, General Mattis is just another bureaucrat bowing to Beltway PC pressure.
The warnings have been issued for nearly two decades about the disaster of women in the combat arms and special operations; by Elaine Donnelly, by the late Colonel David Hackworth, by numerous women serving honorably in the armed forces and even by Mattis himself!
We know now nothing is going to change and the lunacy will prevail until the moment the first shots are fired on a distant battlefield when the Grim Reaper comes calling for thousands of young American men and women who will be the first victims of the militarys non-stop social engineering.
As for the Navy SEALs and their predecessors, the Frogmen; a grateful nation remembers your uncommon valor for decades before your sacrifices were disrespected by the minions of diversity.
And rather than turning around this PC nonsense instituted by Obama, mostly late in his second term, Mad Dog seems to be allowing it to continue full speed ahead.
Mattis, Sessions .... barf.
Mad Dog is a P.R. machine first and foremost.
Breathless hyperbole. I agree that SEAL standards ought not be lowered for women, but it’s not the end of the military.
Are not the protectors of Hasan still in power?
Still protecting their Moslem plants?
Well, they did postpone allowing the trannies to open serve.
One of the ‘women’ is a tranny so he might make it. After seeing a film on SEAL training, biological females won’t make it, IMO.
I believe.... that the last 6mos were all Sun Tzu deception and his real cabinet is waiting in the wings for the real transition.
No! It's the liberal generals and admirals who agree to destroy the military in return for extra stars on their shoulders.
I thought Mattis was the real deal.
I know you have your ear to the ground...but is that true about Mattis?
If so, we are in deep shiite.
Many times I feel that I am living in an insane asylum. PC may be what pushes us over the edge.
I thought the military had agreed to provide all medical services for the transitioning. And the females in combat and in the Seals continues.
Agreed. Gen. Mattis tipped his hand as a two star when he okayed charging the Haditha Marines.
Then I remind myself of "The Falling Away."
I suspect that our Lord will return shortly.
Have faith and pleasant dreams (particularly upon waking up in the morning).;-)
I saw a report somewhere this "woman" is actually a transgendered man. Any truth to this? If true, In many ways, its even worse.
“A woman will train with other potential officers this summer in hopes of becoming the first female Navy SEAL.”
This is interesting.
Because all normal females fail, the military is pushing the transgender issue. The first “female” that completes the extreme military requirements of any special forces will be trannys.
Our enemies must be laughing. Russia couldn’t be more happy seeing that their covert operations through the twisted obama (and pushed by the sick minded Hillary) is succeeding better than expected.
And what’s with Rex and the gay boy scouts?
I guess that policy was already in effect and the House was unable to rescind it.
