Posted on 06/09/2010 6:33:46 PM PDT by VRWCTexan

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, said Wednesday he is disappointed by the international community's "tepid" response to North Korea's attack on a South Korean warship and called on China to step up and do more.

Hey Admiral, how about America’s tepid response to North Korea sinking the ship? I must be honest, I don’t really care because I wonder why are we still there after 50 years. I say bring our troops home and put them on our southern border.

The ChiComs have their own game and it is NOT our game

Americans sound (are) so unbelievably naive when ‘wondering’ why the PRC, Putin, Chia-pet, Assad, Erdogan, Saud, Ahmawhackjob, et al don’t do what we think they should do....

answer = they are playing us for fools while doing exactly what they want to do

All the easier with the current jack-hole in chief. Betcha 0 rebukes Mullen for his ill-tempered comments about our red friends.

ROFL. Thanks.

Admiral Mike Mullin is the pansified CJCS who wants homosexuals serving openly in the military. This guy literally reeks impotence and leftist political correctness. If the rest of our navy’s leadership is anywhere close to this weak quisling, we’re sunk (literally).

Not middle east or terrorism, but our enemy. Admiral, you're "asking" China to step up in defense of South Korea, you have to be kidding. Be nice if we all sang Kumbaya together, but then we wouldn't need Admirals.

If you mean by "our" the average patriotic American you are right. If you mean the administration who are now running this country and representing us to the world, you are wrong. The Chicoms and this administration have a lot in common.

You should see his namby pamby speeches to the troops. He’s clearly more concerned about social justice and political correctness than military readiness. He certainly doesn’t inspire my confidence in his ability to wage war, but I will say this, he fits the Obama (mal)administration to a T!

BTW, I’ve known good, bad, and terrible officers. Some of the best were tough as nails, politically incorrect, and abrasive at times, but they inspired confidence. I would have followed them anywhere. Unfortunately, many more were bureaucrats and managers who were simply working their way up the chain by being competent.

Mullin was part of the Navy cabal that invited the chicom navy to Pearl Harbor for a tour and tea. I remember being stunned to observe these USN toady fools in action.

Fits the mold of Gen Casey and the rest of the feckless military leadership. Just a group of Obammy like-minded puppets with a common trait of career appeasement grovelers. These guys sully the honor of our military.

Get out now and take your proud Islamic jihadi appeasement uniforms forever stained of the Ft Hood victims blood.

You all seem to be a pathetic bunch with the combined honor of our Congress. Be gone with your surrender buckets now.

Adm. Mike Mullen

Admiral Mike Mullen Tells Air Force Graduates To Embrace Change As Gay Ban Vote Nears "

"PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — On the eve of a vote to end the military ban on openly gay service members, the nation's top uniformed military officer repeated his support Wednesday for repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. "Personal opinion? I believe it's time. I believe we need to change it," Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told about 500 service members at Peterson Air Force Base."

Since our own response was “tepid”, why should the international community be different.

And people always wondered where mutinies began and ended. I remain firm it is the average citizens that in one form or another raises the jolly rogers first. The soldiers follow in wholesale, but we only get to hear the ending of that story.

Doesn’t the Admiral get sitrep and intel reports. Chicoms already moved up 4 mech inf divisions onto their Korean border just in case NK collapses. The divs are there because at their normal locations it would take up to two weeks to rail them to the border, thus the PLA already have 4 heavy divs ready. The PLA also has several bdes of airportable inf and airborne troops, plus local militia/armed police units to backup the 4 heavy divisions. Deployed behind these 4 mech divisions is a cadre plus command/control and logistics of a GA (Group Army) to coordinate the heavy divisions plus any additional reinforcments from airportable bdes. In other words China within 72 hours can have up to 100,000 troops as the vanguard to move into NK. China also has a history of buying NK generals and admirals. The two Kim leaders have a habit of purging any general or admiral that show any signs of pro Bejing tendencies to keep China from making NK into a total puppet. Right now there is a power struggle amongst the Kim sons (each backed by different generals). The youngest son is favored by Kim but his oldest son is living in a luxury hotel in Macau on a Chinese stipend. Here is a possible scenario, Kim dies, the sons fight and society falls apart. China secures the support of NK generals in charge of troops near the Chinese border allows the Chinese to occupy a strip of NK to keep Korean refugees from flooding into China by creating a zone of stability while everything south of the zone to the 38th Parallel goes to hell. SK and US will delay any move northward because the NK troops on the DMZ may still remain in their bunkers to very end of the collapse. If the US and SK delay their moves further, the PLA will expand their zone southward as more NK generals decide to join the zone. Eventually the SK and US will advance northward and a new DMZ will be drawn. The oldest Kim son will be made leader of the newly drawn NK with borders north of the current DMZ. This way China prevents Korean refugees, retains control of NK and get their buffer zone against the US. Here is a tibit of info that the MSM did not report. Several weeks ago, NK border guards shot and killed three Chinese citizens and claimed they were smugglers. One week later a Chinese border guard shot and killed a NK border guard. Normall these incidents are hushed up and each side would pay the other for damages/deaths. China actually filed a diplomatic protest to the NK in public. Things are getting interesting between NK and China. Time wil tell.

The threat of NK artillery on Seoul will freeze ROK/US movement until or unless we have assurances inside NK military that they will not fire.

It is to our advantage to let the Chicoms try to handle the NK basket case.

You have it exactly right.

Also count on the NK sending the starving dregs of their society to the south so that the worst of the refugees are SK’s and the US’s problem.

Who does this guy think gives North Korea cover?

North Korea has nukes and a delivery system, and China doesn’t utter a peep about it. And North Korea is on it’s doorstep.

If that doesn’t tell you all you need to know...

Thats exactly right. The CHICOMS are behind the whole thing. They tested Barry Soetor's soft diplomacy and they love it!

Barry Soetoro is ging to get millions needlessly killed before he and his nationalist socialists czars are through.

And do you think Barry Soetoro cares?He wants disorder. He is creating it purposefully as we speak.

Barry wants crisis after crisis so he can destroy America and rebuild the world in his own Utopian image.

The time will come when we will wish that we had .......etc...just like we did with Europe's fascists.

China and Russia are both conducting massive military exercises later this summer near North Korea. Their main target, not surprisingly, is the United States and allied forces in the region.

They’re also not throwing their military around and not actually showing us what they are capable of so we can study their maneuvers and tactics. Keeping their cards close and not interested in saving the planet. IF they do mobilize, it will likely be in defense of their country.

“Americans sound (are) so unbelievably naive when ‘wondering’ why the PRC, Putin, Chia-pet, Assad, Erdogan, Saud, Ahmawhackjob, et al don’t do what we think they should do”

Because the Chinese have a drastically different mentality. As to the Russians, Arabs, etc. They are also the last militaries we want to mobilize for anything. If they did mobilize and say, invade Saudi Arabia or Africa to stop a genocide, their methods would be sadistic and they do not play by the Queensberry rules. I don’t think it is a good idea that the Chinese or Russians be aware of what they are capable of in a war.
