Training For The Repeal Of DADT Already Underway In Afghanistan
kpbs.org ^ | 17 February 2011 | Alison St John

Posted on 02/19/2011 4:58:07 PM PST by Racehorse

The President has not yet certified the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and it will not go into effect until 60 days after that.

But during a teleconference from Afghanistan to Camp Pendleton, Major General Richard Mills said training packages to prepare for the repeal have already arrived in Helmand Province.

Mills described the training as "quite extensive,” with a series of classes, including scenarios and discussion groups. He said the trainers are being trained, and Marines based at Camp Leatherneck will start going through the program as soon as the directive comes down from headquarters.

“It’s a little bit more difficult when you get out to where the fighting is going on,” he said. “But we will do it as soon as we can get them into an environment where they can sit, pay attention, be rested and take it seriously.”

Meanwhile, stateside, broad force indoctrination begins 1 March. An Air Force Times article reported that the Air Force declined to give details of the training until shortly before it commences.

Translation . . . don't let the public know until the indoctrination commences.

Unfortunately, there will be no going back. History shows us that things move in a circle, from freedom to tyranny, either by a single strongman or the masses, to revolt and freedom again but in only one direction. So it has been, so it will be. Another worldwide bloodbath awaits. Get right with your Maker.

I just find it so ironic that the DADT training packages are already in Afghanistan, when absentee ballots arrive too late for the return trip to be counted in time.

We’ve got to train normal soldiers how to fight and live alongside homosexuals? That’ weird. It’s the homos that are mentally challenged. Where is the training to teach the sexual deviants how to fight and live alongside normal soldiers?

You really want to be sick, watch the documentary on HBO "The Battle For Marjah" This synopsis by George Smith over at Globalsecurity.org is my take as well.

The doc follows the Marines of Bravo company as part of the assault on Marjah in Helmand province. For the most part, the Taliban are an elusive force. They don't engage Bravo company in any setpiece knock-down, drag out battles, fights they would certainly lose due to much inferior firepower.

Instead, the Marines of Bravo are cut off although it doesn't seem like much of an inconvenience. And eventually Marjah is largely secured.

However, the locals obviously do not care for the Marines. The feeling is mutual.

Members of the "Afghan army" -- and I use asterisks because that's what's deserved -- deploy with the Marines into Marjah. And although there is a bit of loud talk about how they're credible fighters, on video they look to be an inept assortment of reluctant shrimps and weaklings. At one point a few Marines from Bravo curse a group of Afghans, literally having to kick their butts in order to get them through a doorway into a compound being cleared.

Patently worthless as soldiers, many of the Marines appear to view them with contempt.

Eventually the Taliban wind up back in the town anyway.

Afghanistan is a hopeless place. Marjah will reinforce what you already know. Because of the nature of this lesson it is not very watchable. And not because of any fault with the Marine Corps or the filmmaker.

Its astounding the the military would allow this demoralizing garbage to be filmed in the first place, but adding faggots to the mix at this point is not really going to make the situation any worse, and that's saying something.

The caliber of the commanders on the ground leave a lot to be desired as well (they seems to be a lot more concerned that "non-combatants" will be injured than marines, apparently if you want to make Major you have to coddle the enemy and be a cheerleader for homosexuals in the showers).

I feel really really bad for any troops that are in the hell that these socialist bastards in DC have wrought on our military

“.....from freedom to tyranny, either by a single strongman or the masses, to revolt and freedom again but in only one direction.....”

I understand your point of view, but I don’t believe that is a precedence that cannot be broken.

The American people are wising up to the threat that we are faced with as a Nation, and I do believe the Leftist, Socialist, Marxist aggressors are already feeling the heat, and are being forced into extraordinary tactics they may have prepared for, but really didn’t expect to have to use.

I think their Pinky and the Brain “Take over the World” game will end “game over” other than they expect.

Exactly. It is hellish and is has to be reversed, somehow, someway, soon. I did hear some Repubs say they would do whatever it too to derail it. They've defunded some czars, 0h0m0care, and some other stuff - they have to defund this pile of evil. What I wonder is why so few Repubs are vocal about this, I can only assume those who are silent about this are morally compromised themselves or cowards.

“What I wonder is why so few Repubs are vocal about this, I can only assume those who are silent about this are morally compromised themselves or cowards.”

You answered your own question. Too many don’t have any sense of right and wrong, moral and immoral. They are a reflection of the people they represent. That is really scary. We can’t just blame the office holders, we really need to blame those that elect them.

Also, I cannot speak for others, but persons like myself that have morals are guilty of not being a better example to those around me...I stand before God guilty of dereliction of duty....I am a coward in that I only really speak out on forums like this instead of day to day life.

“....What I wonder is why so few Repubs are vocal about this, I can only assume those who are silent about this are morally compromised themselves or cowards.”

I believe from my observations that the feminization of our society that has been under assault by the homo’s, and the Lesbo’s since the sixties in targeted propaganda, subliminal, and not so subliminal in demonstrations, movies, television, radio, cartoons, media in general, even to the clothing designed by homo’s, and lesbo’s, has contributed to a numbness towards the Homosexual.

The homo’s have successfully PC’d themselves.

It’s past time to put some clothes on the kids going to school these days instead of cabaret costumes. That’s intended to mean we have work to do.

That’s one reason why I have only had a TV 2 years my entire adult life and stay as far as possible away from mass media and “culture”. It’s poisonous. And it’s poisoned millions of people. It’s impossible not to get tainted if immersed in it.

When there’s no courageous or principled people to vote for, what to do? Not that there are none, but they are few and far between.

We can all say “I should have done more”, almost every one of us.

But we can gird our loins and try harder. I got in huge trouble because of posting on FR with family; had to get a new screen name, and a couple of family members still haven’t talked to me in years.

All because I’m a homophobe.

If we each do whatever we can do, large or small - that’s all that is important.

“All because I’m a homophobe.”

That is rough about family shunning you. However, I want to share with you my definition of “homophobia” for your amusement.

“Homophobia” - A perfectly natural fear of behavior that is patently unnatural.

God Bless and keep the faith and fight the good fight!

Training? Why do they call this communist propaganda and leftist pc junk re-education kink training?

I always understood the difference between training and education to be simple. Just ask yourself, if your 10 year old child came home from school and instead of stating: "I had sex education today in school", which would be bad enough; they instead stated: "I had sex training today in school".

Quite a difference...

ANYWAY, the left will have more problems with this absurd exercise then they attempt to lead the public to believe.

Convincing America that homosexual sex is not premised in mental disorder and but a self destructive perversion will be more difficult that convincing America that abortion is not murder... Oh, that's right -America has not been convinced of that yet -it like homosexual sex has been IMPOSED!

Regardless, truth always wins the war no matter any minor battles lost...
